Notes:
The Longhorns lost a lot of talent last season but they come back with lots more this seaons. Driphus Jackson will lead a fash pace offense and the defense will be solid even though they only have two returning starters. They have a tough pre-district schedule that includes matchups with Allen, Denton Guyer and Odessa Permian. Expect the Longhorns to go 8-2 or 9-1. They should win the district championship and maybe have another clash vs. Abilene in the Regional round of the playoffs.
