Notes:
The Trojans are LSG's Class 5A #1 team after falling just short in last years championship game. They have great players on both sides of the ball with OL Lutui and LB Nance. Region 1 is stacked with great teams and they all want a shot at Trinity. Look for more classics with teams like Allen, Coppell and Round Rock Stony Point waiting to get another shot at the Trojans.
