Notes:
The Cowboys will be a force in 2010 with 8 returning offensive starters form an 11-2 Regional qualifier team in '09. RB McDaniel will be the focus on offense and will get to run behind a young but tested line led by Rice and williams. Expect the Cowboys to compete for the district title with Southlake Carroll who they just cant seem to beat very often. They should go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and then be a tough out in the playoffs. A possible first round playoff opponent could be Allen which would be a tough draw. After that Euless Trinity will be waiting in the Regionals or Quarterfinals.
