Notes:
Texarkana Texas will battle for the district title once again with Longview. The Tigers have a lot of returning lettermen from last years Area playoff team and we should get at least a repeat performance this year. This team will be a very tough out in the playoffs. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season. Their game at Longview will be one to watch.
