Week one was successful for the Ricebirds after beating Texas City, a playoff team from last year in the 5A classification, 28-21.

The Ricebirds offense ground out 170 yards rushing from six different rushers. The defense allowed a couple of big plays on the ground and in the air from the Texas City offense, but managed more big plays, forcing turnover after turnover to hold on to their first win of the year.
