Notes:
The Tigers are Back to Back 2A Champions. This year they do not have a lot of starters coming back but the ones they do are superstars. QB Boyd will lead the offense and LB Edmond will lead the defense. One of the true powers of East Texas, Daingerfield doesn't rebuild, they simply reload and 2010 will be another run for a state championship.
