Notes:
* Are finally not the defending state champion after winning 3 in a row from 2008-2010
* They Only made it to the Quarterfinals last year falling to Melissa the 2011 state champion.
* Have gone 24-5 over the last 2 seasons

  • Mike Says: The Tigers should continue their winning ways this year. They will feature superstar Edwin Mims who may line up anywhere. 2nd year coach Sardinea had a great first season and now has his team sitting as a top 5 team this year. They won their games by an average of over 25 points per game last year. Look for them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and make it to at least the Quarterfinals. We are all looking forward to their non-district game against Gilmer.
  • Chris Says: Daingerfield barely missed a beat last season under new Head Coach, Aric Sardinea.  It took the state champions, Melissa, to knock them out of the playoffs last year.  Again, the Tigers should take care of business in district and once in the postseason, look for them to be alive four rounds deep or more.
