The first softball rankings of the 2019 season are here from VYPE powered by Barcelona Sports.
There should be no surprise on who starts at the top for Class 6A as the defending state champions bring back a lot of weapons. Mikayla Garza and Katie Cimusz were fun to watch in their stellar freshman campaigns at Atascocita. Now time to see what they do as an encore.
Behind them The Woodlands is loaded again and watch out for Klein Collins. This team was on the verge of reaching the state tournament last season. They move into the same district as The Woodlands, which will make for some fun softball in 2019.
In Class 5A, the top team to start the year is Barbers Hill. The Eagles have all the pieces to make a run. Jessica Mullins (Texas State-commit) leads the crew in the circle and they have plenty of firepower at the plate in Sydney Hoyt (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) and Rebecca Miller (Pitt). Expect for them to compete for a spot late in the season. Also a team to watch is Angleton. This team brings back a lot of talent from a 34-5 year and one it reached the Regional Finals.
This is going to be fun!

One of the big factors that led to the Texans' loss to the Jaguars on Sunday was the secondary. Multiple flags for pass interference gave Jacksonville more opportunities to pick up first downs and score points.
Can confirm #Texans backup CB Shaq Griffin was cut.
Griffin started 6 games this year when Derek Stingley was out with a hamstring.

So it's no surprise that DeMeco Ryans is making some changes to his defense this week. According to several reports, Texans corner Shaq Griffin has been cut.
Nickel corner Tavierre Thomas was flagged for PI more than once on Sunday, and was burned badly by Jaguars receiver Calvin Ridley for a touchdown.
DeMeco was asked after the game if he considered replacing Thomas with Desmond King or Shaq Griffin. Ryans didn't give a definitive answer, but it looks like we got one today.
One has to wonder if Desmond Kings' experience playing nickel was the reason for his promotion to the active roster and why Griffin was released. If Thomas continues to struggle, King looks like the next man up to replace him.
#Texans activate Denzel Perryman, promote Desmond King to active roster, release Shaq Griffin, sign Matt Ammendola and Garret Wallow to practice squad, released Gerrid Doaks from practice squad and placed Tytus Howard (knee-patellar tendon surgery pending) on injured reserve https://t.co/knyyoqo7yC

The Texans also made some other adjustments to their roster on Wednesday, per Aaron Wilson. Linebacker Denzel Perryman returns from suspension, kicker Matt Ammendola and linebacker Garret Wallow join the practice squad. They also released Gerrid Doaks from the practice squad.
The other big piece of news involves left guard Tytus Howard. He heads to injured reserve, ending his season after hurting his knee against Jacksonville.
