Cedar Hill is going to be a lot of fun to watch. They have tremendously talented kids, a tough defense and nine returning starters in an offense that uses, “every formation you can possibly run from a gun or pistol set”, according to Coach McGuire. Building on what I wrote yesterday, Cedar Hill’s offensive philosophy is to create defensive confusion and mismatches by running as many formations as possible. I lost track of all the D-I prospects the Longhorns had on the field, but it’s very obvious they will be able to hurt defenses a lot of ways. As with all the teams I’ve watched so far, practice was very efficient, well organized and the kids had the outstanding technique that comes from years of quality coaching.
The Longhorns must have one of the toughest schedules of any team in the country. They open vs. preseason 4A #1 pick Denton Guyer, followed by 5A #6 Allen, then USA Today preseason #11 in the country Washington from Miami, Florida, all before opening district play vs. 5A #8 Desoto. Please write me if you know of anyone with a tougher start of this season.
I got a lot of little hints that this is going to be a very interesting place to visit later in the season, and I’m looking forward to spending a week with them in week 11 for the Midlothian game.
