The 2020 VYPE Austin high school football season preview continues with area UIL 6A team and district breakdowns. Check them out below and stay tuned for more area coverage in the coming days.
Temple always has high expectations and 2020 is no different. The Wildcats will be the district title favorite with the return of Mikal Harrison-Pilot, Samari Howard, Taurean York and Aaron Wagaman and will focus on a multi-round playoff appearance in UIL 6A Region II. Expect Killeen Shoemaker to test them because recruit Omari Evans is joined by Ty Bell, De'Andre Exford and Monaray Baldwin on this year's team.
Harker Heights is another team to watch because it also clinched a playoff spot a year ago and has notable players back in Quintin Howard and Savonte Sanford-Paige. It'll remain in the fight for the final postseason berths in 2020, along with fellow contender Belton, who returns Thomas Bowman, Joe Sniffin, Ruben Jimenez, Kanyn Utley, Trent West, Bryan Henry, Ryan Hunt and Malik Jackson. A Killeen Ellison squad with Damashja Harris, Ezekiel Sheridan, Devonte Tezino, Calvin Harper, James Williams and Traelen Williams is another favorite, but don't ignore the Kadarius Marshall and Jayden Hill-led Killeen and Russel Cochran and McKenzie Agnello-guided Copperas Cove in the district battles with Bryan.
