ROUND ROCK – Going against what had become a theme of its playoff run, Ridge Point didn't have another comeback left in the tank.

Early errors paired with a struggling bullpen became too much for the Panthers to overcome as Southlake Carroll capitalized on every single one of their mistakes.

The Dragons scored 11 runs in the third inning and blew out Ridge Point 17-0 to claim the Class 6A State Championship on Saturday at Dell Diamond.

"We've used this word the whole time through the playoffs, they've shown their resiliency," Ridge Point coach Clinton Welch said. "I don't know how many times we were down but it was a lot. Of course, we got down 4-0 in the first inning of this game too and just one time too many."

Ridge Point finishes its best season in program history with a record of 33-5-1 after reaching the state tournament for the first time. The Panthers were trying to become the first Fort Bend ISD team to win a baseball title since Fort Bend Elkins in 2003.

"It doesn't take away what a great group of student athletes we have at Ridge Point," Welch said. "They've done a great job of battling to get here and acting correct on the field and doing a great job of representing Ridge Point High School, Fort Bend ISD and their community.

"We're really happy for them. It's tough to get here, tough to win that final game. They had a great season."

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
