Notes:
* Had their best season since 1982 last year

  • Mike Says: The Tigers running game was one of the states best last year. They did lose a lot but they bring back QB Bell and OL Jones a couple of juniors to lead the way. The open the year with Denton Ryan which is one of the best in the state. That game will show them where they stand. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 in the regular season. Their game with Tyler John Tyler will probably decide the district championship.
  • Chris Says: Corsicana had a great run last year.  In fact, it seemed like everywhere you turned, there was a team from Corsicana going further than expected.  These Tigers did all that and more.  While they bring back a lot of veterans, it does not include very many of last year's starters.    Corsicana should battle it out for the district title and that experienced game from last season will help them reach several round deep in the postseason.
