Notes:

  • Mike Says: The Trojans only return 6 starters but that never really ever bothers the Trojans. The seem to always be one of the top teams in the state. Their defense will be tops again especially along the defensive line. They start the season with 2 out of state opponents and then take on DeSoto which should be a classic. Expect them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and win the district title. In the playoffs expect at least a Quarterfinal showing.
  • Chris Says: Euless Trinity only brings back 3 starters on each side of the ball, but we are talking about one of the top programs in the nation at one of the largest schools playing the greatest sport in the greatest state... so talent will not be a problem.   Too much?  Do I get too excited about Texas high school football?  Maybe, but its hard not to when you have program's like Steve Lineweaver's Euless Trinity Trojans.  Not a season goes by that a couple of their matchups don't reach our Games of the Year.  This year will be no different.  The Trojans will roll through the season once again and have some amazing playoff games.  Look for them to reach four or five rounds deep as usual come playoff time.
