Everyone is settling into district play as teams are positioning themselves for the postseason.

So who is hot?

Cy Falls is back on track after a challenging tournament season, and should dominate the district. Cy Creek is the only squad standing in their way and they play each other on Friday.

Sam Houston and Westside are the class of the HISD, while Clear Lake is the Big Bird down south. The Falcons have it rolling again under Coach Penders.

After a shaky pre-district slate, the Tompkins Falcons are playing well. Bieniemy (OU), Slojund (Ga. Tech) and Williams are tough to guard.

Shadow Creek is playing a fun brand of basketball and is young, along with Dickinson. Deer Park is having a breakout year along with the BF Terry Rangers.

Stay tuned…

Texans to release prominent player on defense

According to multiple reports, the Texans are waiving LB Zach Cunningham. Cunningham was benched last Sunday for disciplinary reasons, which reportedly stemmed from a missed COVID test. Cunningham was also benched for a quarter earlier in the season for breaking team rules.

According to Ian Rapoport, the Texans will have to eat his 12.8 million dollar cap hit next season.

Cunningham started in seven of the 10 games he’s played this season recording 67 tackles and a forced fumble. The Texans are at a point where there's hardly anyone left on the team that has any name recognition with what's left of the fan base. And now the Texans have another position that will have to be addressed this offseason.

Cunningham will likely command a lot of attention from other teams interested in his services.
