District 7-5A Preview

LSG Region Ranking: #3

LSG State Ranking: #5

Notes:
The Dragons were back last year making it to the Quarterfinals before falling to district foe Denton Guyer. They bring back 11 starters from that team and that includes stars like QB Hill, WR Williams, OL Prince and LB Davis. They play in a very tough district and will compete with Guyer and Coppell for the district championship. Another trip to at least the Quarterfinals looks to be a good bet with them being the top ranked Division II team in the region.
