Also add discipline to the traits list plus Calallen is use to playing in a higher classification and making deep runs!

Good point this should be a possible preview of a State Championship or deep playoff matchup. I haven’t looked at the regions and what not. Very impressed by both for scheduling this marquee matchup.

Me too! I really like it when top tier schools/programs play each other in non-district. Gives both teams and idea where they stand. 

Normally a team that drops a classification finds and uses great confidence. However, no denying the Pedigree of Vega. Having Carthage out of the equation also helps one confidence as well. 😂

I can promise Calallen is no picnic! And if your best trait is speed then Calallen has played that too. I dont know any team that is fast than Fort Bend Marshall. Calallen just about beat them in '18. 

Just about beat them..... But didnt

Most likely Calallen will be very limited on mistakes made. LV will have to line up and beat them.

My pick depends on where they play.

Game is in San Marcos

Calallen is excited for the game.  We’ve played the best in Texas to include Aledo in the 5A D2 championship game, Fort Bend Marshall, College Station and Manvel to name a few We definitely aren’t intimated.  We can handle the speed.  Our biggest obstacle over the years was being one of the smallest 5A D2 schools and playing teams with double the enrollment and depth.  We look forward now to playing in 4A against schools our own size.  I promise you it will be a battle.   We will be ready.

I think LV's D will surprise even early this season......they've had a good run for the past 5 years now and Hyde will have them ready to play in this one.  I have no qualms about their speedy RB's finding small seams and breaking some long ones.  Rauls is back at QB for his Senior season and can run with it too.  One thing you can bet on with LV is their blocking to spring those RB's.  Rauls has enough of an arm and athletic ability to keep Callallen's secondary honest, and we know LV has some speed at the wideout position.  LV has a good set of LB's and some big boys on the line on D......and speed in the secondary if Callallen breaks a few.  Should be a very interesting game.  LV is still loaded.

La Vega with the win. 
That defense has had a year to grow and lick their wounds from the state championship game. 
have only watched CC on tv at the state championship game. 
LaVega has size and speed to match 5A schools.

I don't believe anyone in 4A has a tougher Pre-District schedule then LaVega. 

Week 1 WOS  #3 4a D2

CC Calallen #4 4a D1

Argyle  #2 4a D1

 

Pleasant Grove’s is pretty salty too.

Nashville, AR #2

Argyle #2

Paris #14

Silsbee #8

Carthage #1

Both of those schedules are no freaking joke, man. Insane talent in all those matchups. La Vega’s stands out for sure, but PG’s is probably the toughest.

Argyle's schedule ain't nothing to sneeze at neither:

Decatur #10   4A-D1

Pleasant Grove #2  4A-D2

Celina #6  4A-D2

La Vega #1  4A-D1

Then they have Paris(#14) and Melissa(#19) in their district to play......both ranked in D-1.

Along the same vein, Celina scrimmages Decatur next week, then opens the season against Melissa, Paris, and Argyle.

Its nothing compared to the predistrict schedules of LV, PG, WOS and Argyle, but it’s a nice 1-2-3 to start the season.
