  • Mike Says: The Lions played a pretty tough non-district schedule last year and was 1-4 going into district play. That tough schedule prepared them though as they went 4-1 in district play. Coach York said that he has better young skill players but they have to rebuild the offensive and defensive lines. The Lions have a great shot at the district title with North Forney leaving. Look for them to go 5-5 or 6-4 in the regular season and finish 2nd in the district behind Wills Point.
  • Chris Says: Kaufman is not bringing back a lot of experience but what they do have returning are quality players.  The Lions will need to find athletes to step up at a lot of positions but still should be in the running for District 14-3A.  If they do end up in the playoffs, it is unlikely they will go far just because the region and the entire Class 3A is so strong.
