Brahmas on the run

East Bernard junior quarterback Dallas Novicke hands the ball off to senior running back Devin Chapman against Shiner.

Small school football has been center stage for the past four weeks. Now it is time for the “big boys” to join the party.

Monday’s Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Magazine-Associated Press poll will be the final poll with 6A and 5A programs ranked by preseason rankings.

There are three teams from Fort Bend County included in those top two classifications rankings.

In 6A, Katy Tompkins will open the season on Friday at Magnolia, ranked No. 19 in Texas.

In the 5A-Division I, Foster is No. 7 overall and face Lamar Consolidated on Friday to start the 2020 season.

District 10-5A DI foe Manvel is ranked one spot ahead of the Falcons at No. 6. The Mavericks will host Dickinson on Friday.

In 5A-Division II, Fort Bend Marshall is the No. 4 behind only Ennis, Aledo and Lubbock-Cooper.

The Buffaloes’ first action against another team will be a scrimmage against Fort Bend Travis on Friday.

Among the smaller schools, East Bernard remained in the top 10 for the 3A-DII after an overtime loss to Shiner.

The loss to the No. 1 team in 2A-DI dropped the Brahmas from No. 3 to No. 5.

Yoakum moved up one spot to No. 8 in the Class 3A-DI rankings after beating Needville in overtime this past Friday.

George Ranch will face the No. 10 team in Class 5A-DII, Crosby, on Thursday at Traylor Stadium.
