  • Mike Says: The Cobras bring back a lot of players this year but not a lot of all-district selections. They are in a really tough district and even when they play smaller schools in pre-district, they take on Shiner and Ganado which are not very easy wins. Look for them to win 4 or 5 games this year. If they get the 5th win they should get that 4th playoff spot.
  • Chris Says:  Vanderbilt Industrial has fallen on hard time the past few seasons, but Coach Shane Lothman brings back the majority of both the offense and defense.  District 14-2A is no cake walk and it will take a special effort by the Cobras to turn around their slide against opponents like Hallettsville, Edna and Rice Consolidated.  If they are going to make it to the postseason, they need to strap it on tight and be playing their best ball by the start of district play.
