  • Mike Says: The Trojans only return 5 starters from their Quarterfinals team. This might be a tough season for them with a new head coach and so few returning players. They will find out just how good they are in their first game of the season vs. Munday. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 in the regular season and make the playoffs. Their district will be fun to watch. Its a toss up between them, Seymour and Quanah.
  • Chris Says:  Windthorst brings back quite a few players, but not many starters.   If the Trojans start slow against teams like Munday and Holliday, it could be the motivation for the Trojans to "get serious and play Windthorst football..." or it could cause them to feel defeated and put a slide on their season.  If Head Coach Chris Tackett can get the team to believe in themselves early, it could be another Windthorst season - filled with exciting games and "W's."  It will be a watershed year for the Trojans and it history gives any hint to the outcome, expect Windthorst to do just fine this year.  They should win 6 or 7, make the playoffs and make it two or three rounds deep.
