Key Players:
* Jordan Woody-All-state potential defensive back 1st Team All-District WR & DB
* Michael Cisneros-returning wide receiver
* Hunter Galvan- Returning center

* Pedro Guerro -- running back
* Librado Chavarria -- offensive lineman
* John Yannis -- wide receiver

Notes:
* Have had 8 consecutive non-winning seasons

  • Mike Says: The Whirlwinds look to turn things around this year after losing 4 district games last year. Their wide receivers will be the strength of the team led by Jordan Woody. Look for them to go 4-6 or 5-5 in the regular season and fight Olton for that 3rd playoff spot.
  • Chris Says: Floydada has never been one of those teams that is at the top of your mind when you talk about Texas high school football.  That said, you can usually count on the Whirlwinds to win half their games, make the playoffs about half the time and win half of those games.  Since last year was below .500 and no playoffs, they are due for a 5 win season and a spot in the playoffs.  It will be close though.
