  The two-game shootout is set to start a 3 p.m.with a game between the Whartn Panthers and the 3rd Coast Hard Hittaz from Lake Jackson. 
   The Texans will then take on the Edinburg Landsharks for the night-cap game schedule for a 7 p.m. kickoff. 
   “The Landsharks have 3 championships under their belt. They are a good team,” said Texans Owner Rudy Guzman. “Their offensive line averages about 365 pounds. Those are some big guys. This game is going to be, definitely, speed verses power.”
   The annual pre-season double header is a Texan tradition that Guzman hosted as a charity fundraiser for several years in Victoria.
