2012 LSG Texas High School Football Team Preview — Center Point Pirates

Team: Center Point Pirates (14-1A DI)

Stadium: Pirate Stadium

Enrollment: 179 -- smallest in the district out of 6 schools

2012 Schedule:

Johnson City
@ Sabinal
Ozona **
@ Junction **

@ Mason **

Coach: Bubba Walters (1 year) 6-5 record at Center Point; 6-5 all-time coaching record

Coaches Comments: We have graduated 4 starting Offensive Lineman and that will be very hard to replace. However the boys have worked real hard during the off season and are ready for any challenge. District Outlook: I know it will be difficult with three 2a teams dropping down to our district and the Defending State Champions coming into this District. I would think Mason would be 1st, Junction 2nd, and a fight for third.

Returning Lettermen: 12

Returning Starters: Offense: 6 Defense: 7

Key Players:
* QB JR Roberto Zendejo DIST OFF MVP 1,952 total yards passing and rushing
* WR Jared Velasco
* RB Zach Custer 1st Team All-District 1,270 total yards rushing and receiving
* OL Michael Cox
* OL/DL JR Cody Martin 1st Team All-District DL
* RB/LB Lemuel Ramirez
* LB SOPH Lupe Valadez 79 tackles
* LB Denver McCutchen 68 tackles

Notes:
* District includes 3 teams that dropped down from 2A and defending state champion Mason
* 2011 ended a streak of 6 consecutive non-winning seasons

  • Mike Says:The Pirates will have a tough time with their new district. The offense will be solid with QB Zendejo and RB Custer leading the way. Expect them to go 4-6 or 5-5 on the season. They have an outside chance at that third playoff spot.
  • Chris Says: If the line develops in time for district play, there is no reason Center Point won't qualify for the playoffs.  However, that is a big "if."   Coach Walters' Pirates are going to have to grow up fast and games like this regular season finale against Mason will give them plenty of opportunity.  Last years turnaround puts them in a position to change the program from their middle-of-the-road history and start a new tradition.
