Key Players:
WR Dylan Fulford HM All-State 57-1304 yards 19 TDs
OL Russell Dobbs
DL Tyler Ryan 91 tackles
DL Kyler Scheriger 39 tackles
DB JR Brian Sides HM All-State 6 INTs 104 tackles

Notes:
The Steers gave Carthage their toughest game last season and came close to winning the state championship. They lost a lot from that team including QB Case McCoy who is now a Texas Longhorn. Look for Fulford on offense and Sides on defense to be leaders. Graham should win the district title and go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season and make a trip to the Area or Regional playoffs. They play a tough pre-district schedule with Abilene Wylie, Brownwood and Bridgeport on the schedule. It looks like their bi-district game would be against Brownwood or Snyder so that would be a hard game to advance on.
