Houston team loaded with offensive weapons

The cupboard is full for whoever is taking over the head job at Houston (Texas) Chavez High School for former coach Danny Palmer, who has taken a job with the Canadian Football Leagues' Ottawa Renegades.
Chavez boasts the best tight end in Houston and maybe the state of Texas. He is Harold Turnage, who caught 52 passes for 786 yards as a junior. The 6-foot-5, 245-pound tight end was first-team all-district and ranked third in receptions.
"There will be a new coach with new expectations," Turnage said of next year. "I just hope we throw the ball the same. I'm working out in the offseason and will take in some camps in the summer. I want to go to Texas A&M and LSU's one-day camp for sure."
While Turnage is a tremendous target, he can also run block with his offensive lineman-like size.
"He can really do it all," Palmer said. "He could play Division I football right now. He would be a great tight end or H-back. With his skills, coaches would be crazy to turn him into an offensive lineman."
Turnage currently favors Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Houston and UCLA.
Joining Turnage as a Division I can't miss is receiver Erik Martin, who had 82 catches to lead the district last year. The 6-foot-5, 190-pound wide-out also excels at basketball and will play AAU ball this summer.
So who get's the ball to these skyscrapers?
Robert Bargas (6-foot-1, 180 pounds) threw for over 1,500 yards as a junior and has an 87 miles-per-hour fastball to boot. He's been starting since his freshman season.
"Robert can really avoid the rush and throw from the hash mark to the other sideline with some zip," Palmer said. "He has a quick release and he's only going to get better during the offseason."
Balancing the offense is junior running back Brian Eurysthee, who rushed for over 1,000 yards and had 18 touchdowns as sophomore.
"Brian can hit the holes with speed and has the body to take some punishment," Palmer said. "He should rush for over 1,500 yards the next two seasons."
