The biggest game in Houston this past weekend actually happened on Saturday when rivals Galveston (Texas) Ball went to battle against LaMarque.
Both teams are loaded with Division I talent, and in the end it was LaMarque that won 20-19. Ball's defense, led by defensive tackle Rajon Henley, did all it could, but they couldn't come away with the win.
"Our kicker missed two extra points wide left," Henley, a three-star defensive tackle that is 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, said. "I had 12 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery. I guess I played well, but I'd rather have the win."
Ball is now 1-1 on the season and will face Booker T. Washington this week.
"I know they lost Reggie Youngblood, but after that I don't know much other than that about them yet," Henley said.
Henly has been busy on the phone talking to college coaches in September. He's talked to Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Utah, Texas Tech, Texas A&M and Iowa so far.
"Most of them have offered me scholarships already," Henley said. "I think A&M is the only one that hasn't. I actually went ahead and set up a few official visits."
That first trip will be to Utah this weekend for when the Utes battle Utah State. He's also scheduled to visit Oklahoma State when they play Colorado.
"I'm being recruited by coach (Joe) DeForest at Oklahoma State," Henley said. "He's a really nice guy. He doesn't try to pressure me into anything and we talk about a lot of different things."
