On Tuesday evening, Conroe ISD approved The Woodlands High School’s hire of Jim Rapp as Head Football Coach/Athletic Director.

Rapp has been the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at TWHS for 22 years. He takes over for former HFC Mark Schmid, who was the head coach for 14 years. Schmid had been at TWHS for more than 30 years before his resignation.

Rapp brings an extensive knowledge of the program as well as a familiarity with success at The Woodlands. He was the coordinator that led an offense that shattered records on the way to the Highlanders’ 2016 title run.

Rapp’s success and knowledge keeps the Highlanders successful tenure alive.

Without having to deal with bringing a new face, the Highlanders can pick up right where they left off during last year’s two-loss season. They look to bounce back after last year’s shocking first round loss to Rockwall.

The Highlanders enter the 2018 season facing a new district featuring tough competition like Klein Collins, Klein Oak, Oak Ridge and Klein High. Klein Collins will be their toughest opponent as they’ve taken over as the new top dog in Northwest Houston.

Expect a tough first season under new Head Coach Rapp, especially with a minimal amount of starting experience returning. However, The Woodlands are a perennial powerhouse and will restock and reload like they always do. Expect the Highlanders should be back in the playoffs in 2018.

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
