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.

When the Astros signed Josh Hader to anchor the back of the bullpen with Ryan Pressly and Bryan Abreu, we thought the club might have the best 'pen in MLB.

But at this early stage in the season, nobody is confusing these guys with Octavio Dotel, Brad Lidge, and Billy Wager.

Heading into the ninth inning on Monday night, the Astros handed the ball to Hader trailing the Braves 2-1. Instead of keeping the game close and giving the Astros' offense one more chance, the Braves teed off on the closer putting the game out of reach and ultimately winning 6-1.

Hader has one save on the season with an ERA over nine. Which has us wondering, do the Astros have a Hader problem?
