HOUSTON – Less than two months removed from winning the Class 6A Division I State Championship, North Shore players are back on the gridiron continuing to put on a show.

The stage this time was the Nike "The Opening" Regionals on Sunday at Katy ISD's Legacy Stadium, with slots at "The Opening" Finals up for grabs.

After a day of drills, three of the eight MVP awards for the regional camp went to the boys from the East side.

Corey Flagg Jr. was named the linebacker MVP, Perry Wells took home the defensive back MVP and Zach Evans earned the highest rating with a SPARQ score of 135.84.

On paper, Aldine Davis should be the best returning Aldine ISD volleyball squad for the 2019 campaign.

But that's just on paper.

Starla Jones, the reigning District 16-6A Coach of the Year, has been persistent this offseason in reminding her team that the successes of last year are just that. They are last season's, which doesn't entitle her group to that same success in 2019.

"I think it's going to give them some confidence that they have a year under their belt," Jones said. "But it's a new season, a new team. Last year is last year. I'm reminding them that we've got to start all over. It's going to take some work like it did before.

"We can't settle, and we can't expect to be at the top just because we were last year."

Last season, Aldine Davis went 20- 26-1 overall and 10-4 in District 16-6A play to finish in a tie for second place with MacArthur.

"I've told them, you do realize because you were up there you are definitely one of the teams to beat," Jones said. "Everybody's going to be pumped. I don't care what team it is. They're going to be ready to play you."

Returning to the court for the Falcons this season is District 16-6A Newcomer of the Year Kiyah Felder, first-team selections Ashlyn Laymond and Tavia Harrell and second-teamer Hailey Harris. Also returning is Lyric Carwell, who was an honorable mention.

What excites Jones the most about this group is that this summer the girls put in the needed work to get better in the weight room.
