Notes:
Daingerfield was dominating last season and this year they could even be better. They return 12 starters that include three all state players and 25 lettermen. A good game to watch this year is when they play Celina. The Tigers won 28-20 last year which made the state take notice. Look or another chmapionship game run this year. They are loaded on both sides of the ball.
