NORTH SHORE – Current plans are for the Mustangs to open the football season with a first, a game against a nationally recognized top team. The game will take place on Saturday, August 29 at Galena Park ISD field, unless the pandemic forces a change in the schedule or venue.
The game between two national Powerhouse teams would be telecast on ESPN network. The two teams have won 10 state championships, 6 for De La Salle in California, and 4 for North Shore.
The game would be part of a double-header, which would include Shadow Creek vs. Philadelphia’s St. Joseph Prep.
Coach Jon Kay told the North Channel Star, at a recent appearance at North Shore Rotary, the significance of this matchup is national attention to the North Shore team, and the increased possibility that the team’s players would be recruited by the NFL scouts.
If the California team is unable to make the trip to Houston, due to restrictions from the virus concerns, then the opening game would see North Shore play Shadow Creek at the GPISD stadium.
