Notes:
The Trojans are the one of the favorites to win it all again after winning the Division I Championship last season and 9 offensive and 5 defensive starters from that team. Those starters include at least 4 Division I recruits. Trinity will once again play a very tough pre-district schedule. They open up against Tyler Lee in the Trinity Mother Frances Football Classic and then turn around the next week to play the best Arkansas has to offer in the Kirk Herbstreit Classic. After those two games, the Trojans will probably run the table. Expect them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and make it to at least the Quarterfinals. It will be no surprise though to see them in the Championship game again going for their fourth championship in the last six seasons.
