COLLEGE STATION HS

Head Coach: Coach Foxworth

2018-19 Record: 7-15-3 (3-11-2)

Key Players: “John McDougall and Paul Jang will be very solid for us in the back, and Christian Rodriguez, Jesus Rodriguez, and Oudah Mortaje will be our key possession midfielders. All work very well together, and Brian Bullington and Asaph Pineda will be our key finishers in the final third. I'm looking forward to seeing how much this team is capable of when they finally gel together and master this new style of play.”

 

A&M CONSOLIDATED HS

Head Coach: Jarrod Southern

2018-19 Record: 16-4-2 (12-1-1 in District) overall. Lost in the first playoff round of the regional state championships.

Key Players: Trey Gage (Sr), Jeremy Mwarabu (Sr), Oscar Martinez (Sr), Cisco Avila (Sr).

Preview: Coach Southern is starting his sixth season with A&M Consol, and his third as head coach. After a successful playoff showing last season, his team will be adjusting to significant losses of senior experience. “This year we will have more freshmen and sophomores than we did last year. Last year was an all-upperclassmen team. We just graduated thirteen seniors, of which 7 to 9 were starters and really decent players.” On the matchup against other local BCS teams: “Last year we were the only school where the boys soccer made the playoffs. Rudder just got a new coach, and though CSHS did not have the results last year, their program is poised to shift this year to be more competitive.” Several members of his senior lineup this year have put in the work for college recruiting prospects, and so some quality athleticism can be expected from the Tigers this season.

 

BRYAN HS

Head Coach: Paul Ruiz

2018-19 Record: 5-16-3 (3-11-2)

Key Players: Nico Bulhof (Jr), Ramiro Moreno (Jr), Cesar Silva (Sr), Yanni Vasilakis (Sr), Ben Velasquez (Sr). 

Preview: Last season, Bryan had moved up to the UIL 6A level and it was a very tough season for the Vikings. Coach Paul Ruiz will be starting his 10th season with the Vikings, and his third as head coach. When asked about his team, Coach Ruiz commented, “We are returning our entire midfield, which includes three All-District Honorees from last season (Moreno, Silva, Vasilakis). We will have a change at our forward position(s). And we will need to improve with a new back line and keeper this year. We had a very large number of Juniors and Sophomores on the team last year, so I am glad to have them a year older on the field. We are looking to the leadership of our senior class this year as we work towards a playoff berth in 2020.”

 

RUDDER HS

Head Coach: Dane Seydler

2018-19 Record: 5-16-2 (2-10-2)

Key Players: Coach Seydler did not name specific individuals, but emphasized a team spotlight. “The young men wearing Rudder Green, proudly displaying the crest, and are fans themselves, are who to watch.  The team mentality runs strong here and everyone knows that no one can do it without one another. This includes players coaches, teachers, parents, supporters, administrators… The community.  Expect great things from Rudder.”

Preview: “I know every member on this team will play for something bigger than themselves.  Players, parents, supporters, and anyone involved with the program can expect greater accomplishment and success due to selflessness both on and off the field.  The young men who suit up on game day will know a community stands beside them while their brothers stand for them.  Seniors will savor each and every moment as if it were their last while underclassmen will welcome those same moments with excitement for growth and development.  All will give their 100% effort through mind, body, and heart to support one another in their collective endeavors.”
