2012 LSG Team Preview — Vanderbilt Industrial Cobras

2012 LSG Texas High School Football Team Preview — Vanderbilt Industrial Cobras

Team: Vanderbilt Industrial Cobras (14-2A Division I)

First Varsity Season: 1950

Enrollment: 328 -- 5th largest in the district out of 6 schools

Coach: Shane Lothman (1 Year) 4-6-0; 22-29-0 all-time coaching record

Returning Lettermen: 12

Returning Starters: Offense: 3 Defense: 3

Key Players:
* FB Will Knopp
* RB David Franz
* DL JR Mason Davis 60 tackles
* DB A.J. Rosas

Notes:
* Went 4-6 in Lothmans first year after going 30-8 in the previous 3 seasons

  • Mike Says: The Cobras only have 6 starters coming back. That along with being in a very tough district will make it a long season. Expect them to go 3-7 or 4-6 for the season and have an outside chance at making the playoffs where they would need at least 3 district wins.
  • Chris Says: There are only a few tougher districts in all of Texas high school football.  Add that to the fact that the Cobras bring back very little experience and you have a recipe for an off year.  What is an "off year" after a 4-6 season?  As much as I hate to say this about my alma mater, we are looking at a 3 win season.
