That’s a wrap. The 2018 hoop season is a virtual wrap as we are on the eve of the playoffs.

The regulars jam up the Top 5 with Cy Falls, Dekaney, Sam Houston, Clear Lake and Bush leading the way most of the season.

So who are the other teams who have legit chances are reaching state? Yates for sure in Class 4A. Dekaney, Klein Forest, Klein Oak, The Woodlands and College Park will battle in Class 6A Region II, while Region III will be a blood bath. Class 5A is a big of a toss-up with Shadow Creek and Elkins coming out of District 23-5A and Humble in 21-5A.

It’s going to be fun, but let’s see how all the district titles shake out this week.

KINGWOOD - The true impact of a coach can't always measured by the number of win and losses, the number of district championships or even runs at a state title.

This story goes beyond any of that.

In reality, the impact a coach is seen whenever they become the one that is in need of the support that they have been providing to others their entire career.

Kingwood girls soccer coach Pres Holcomb, who is set to begin chemotherapy to battle Stage 4 colon cancer, which he was diagnosed with on December 20, is seeing his impact as the Kingwood and soccer community has rallied around him and his family with messages, wristbands, t-shirts, donations and more.

"It's overwhelming in a good way," Holcomb said. "It's kind of crazy when you see your own name across stuff like that. Once we went public with it, the support has been amazing. People you haven't talked to in years are reaching out to you."

Since they've gone public with it the "Hope for Holcomb" campaign has taken off.

The soccer team - which was told about Holcomb's battle in a group setting - created blue wristbands with the phrase on them. It started with the girls wearing them during matches and expanded to them being sold at different places in the community.

They started by ordering just 300.

Then an order of 500 more was needed and that still wasn't enough. The wristbands have sold more than 1,000.

"You don't even think you know that many people," Holcomb said.
