With Shadow Creek, Willis and Tomball moving up to Class 6A and Fulshear shifting from Class 4A to Class 5A there was going to be some movement. So, how does the new-look 5A in the Houston-area for football teams?

Well, here we go.

Starting with Class 5A Division I. There are three Houston-area districts in this mix.

District 8-5A-DI includes Cleveland, College Station, Caney Creek, Lufkin, Magnolia, Magnolia West, New Caney, Porter and Waller. Lufkin moves from its East Texas district and is pulled into the Houston area. This is going to be a competitive district. In football, New Caney has been a power the past few years, we will see how they do under a new head coach in 2020.

That district is in Region II as well, meaning come playoff time they will be traveling a lot.

In Region III, District 9-5A-DI sees all of the Goose Creek CISD schools - Goose Creek Memorial, Baytown Lee and Baytown Sterling - get put together, which is nice for that district. Other teams involved will be Beaumont United, which moves down from 6A, Friendswood, Galveston Ball, La Porte and Port Arthur Memorial.

The final Houston-area district in 5A-DI is District 10-5A. Manvel and Foster headline this district when it comes to football. Both teams have been powers the past few years and should continue that trend in 2020. Angleton is another team to watch in the district along with Fort Bend Hightower, Fort Bend Kempner, Rosenberg Terry, Milby, Wisdom and Katy Paetow.

Let's boil down the Class 6A football reclassification as it relates to the Greater Houston area.

District 21-6A becomes the new power conference with North Shore (back-to-back Class 6A DI state champs), Atascocita (2019 Region III finalist) and West Brook (2018 Class 6A DII state runner up).

The big winners were Deer Park and Channelview, who move to District 22-6A. While it will be tough to schedule for District 13-6A with six teams, it means that only two teams don't make the postseason.

Another interesting note is now Houston represents half of Region II (4 of 8 districts) and all of Region III.

REGION II

District 13-6A -- Are Conroe schools plus Willis.

District 14-6A -- Are the Spring and Aldine schools again. No change there.

District 15-6A -- Are the Klein and Tomball schools. Tomball moves up to Class 6A.

District 16-6A -- An all-Cy Fair district. Cy Falls moves over to replace Tomball Memorial.
