Preview

Manor is playing in its first game of the season against the LBJ Jaguars, who lost their first game of the season last week to Cornerstone Christian, 17-10. 

Manor's head coach, James Keller, enters his first season as the lead man for the Mustangs after spending the past 11 years as an assistant. KVUE spoke with Keller about the opportunity to enter his first game as head coach of the Mustangs.

"There's a little nerves all the time. Even when I wasn't head coach, there's always nerves going into the game, especially week one," Keller said. "Couple weeks ago, we didn't know that we'd have this opportunity, so now that it's here we've got to be grateful and go out and play like every game's our last." 

Conversely, LBJ brings a star-studded defense featuring players getting offers from the likes of Texas, Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, Dartmouth and the Air Force.

Keller told KVUE he recognizes the talent LBJ brings to the table, but the team believes their advantage will come from a balanced roster as opposed to having a handful of impact players.
