Notes:

  • Mike Says: The Golden Bears will battle Dallas Kimball for the district title under a new head coach this year. What division they go in the playoffs depends on if Dallas Molina (biggest school in the district) makes it in. The offense will look for a big year out of QB Arthur while the defense will be solid with LB Franklin. Look for them to go 7-3 or 8-2 during the regular season with their 16 returning starters. After that they should go 1 or 2 rounds into the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: South Oak Cliff has a lot going for it this season.  First year coach, Emmett Jones not only takes over a winning team for his first ever head coaching job.  Coach Jones knows how to win as he has spent the previous 7 seasons at Dallas Skyline running an offense that knows how to score.  He also inherits a lot of talented returning players. QB, Kenneth Arthur the District 11-4A Sophomore of the Year will lead the team on offense.  The real experience returning is on the defense.  LB's Richard Franklin and Alex Simmons anchor a stingy defense alongside DB, Melvinson Hartfield.  Once again, the stage is set for a great season finale.  The final game against Dallas Kimball will likely determine the district champ.
