2011 JV Record: 5-5

Notes:
* Have 20 of 22 starters coming back from an 8-3 season.

  • Mike Says: The Yellow Jackets bring back an amazing (for 2A) 31 lettermen and 20 starters from last year squad. Then they have a very good player transfer and then get one to transfer in with RB Biggs coming over from 4A Marshall with over 1000 yards rushing last year. Defensive lineman Woods will be a tough one to hold back this year so expect the EF defense to be solid. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and fight Hughes Springs for the district title. They will be a tough out in the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Elysian Fields is loaded with returning talent with 10 starters from each side of the ball.  That should translate to a better record this year and possibly a district title.  After that, the Yellow Jackets will stick in the playoffs at least two rounds.
