The Cowboys had their season end last year in what was one of the best games of they year vs. Euless Trinity. This year they bring back plenty of players to make it to the Regionals or Quarterfinals again. They play in a very tough district and had big wins over the Division II Champion Denton Guyer (31-14) and Southlake Carroll (35-17) last year. Come playoff time, big time games vs. Allen and Euless Trinity will show up just a few rounds in.
