Here is the best of the best in the private school realm.
Kinkaid tops the group hands down. Back-to-back years the Falcons have reigned supreme in SPC 4A, winning yet another crown in 2018. But can they do it again? Episcopal will have something to say about that. In TAPPS, there are a multitude of teams that will make noise again.
Fans should be on the look-out for Baytown Christian, which won the TAPPS 6-man Division III State Championship a year ago and will be one to tangle with again in 2019. The other TAPPS state champion from Houston in 2018 was Katy St. John XXIII and we will see if either of these teams can go back-to-back.
No. 1 Kinkaid Falcons
The job Nathan Larned has done at Kinkaid is impressive. Back-to-back SPC 4A titles and it seems like he has the train rolling. Since 2010, Kinkaid has won six SPC titles, including three in the past four seasons. Heading into 2019, the Falcons will look different with quarterback Zach Daniel (1,660 yards,21 TDs) off to Hawaii and running back Josh Williams (1,238 yards rushing) at LSU. That is a tough duo to replace but look for Jordan Williams to step up. When big brother Josh got hurt during the season, Jordan stepped up big. In the SPC 4A Championship game, Jordan went off for more than 200 yards rushing, a 63-yard touchdown reception, threw a touchdown pass and had an interception. Yes, all in one game. On top of that, in the season opener last year for the Kinkaid basketball team he dropped 33 points. Jordan is a two-sport phenom and is only entering his sophomore year, already with a football offer from Houston and basketball offers from Baylor and Mississippi State. Yes, he is an all-around star. Other names to remember on this team include Matthew Bale, Victor Garza, Jordan Ricks and Duncan Shields. Ricks finished last year with 53 tackles and eight sacks. Garza (490 yards receiving) is a versatile athlete that you will see play receiver, defensive back and return kicks.
