  • Mike Says: The Cowboys bring back a lot of defensive returner from last years playoff team. They play in a tough district so look for them to win 5 or 6 games and come in 3rd or 4th in the district.
  • Chris Says: Edna has been a good team as of late but District 14-2A is one of the toughest in the class.  The Cowboys will fight week in and week out and and if they win a couple keys match ups could be in contention for the district title.   While the crown may not go to them, Edna will be a playoff team and could last a couple rounds thereafter.

Notes:
* 22-9 over last 3 seasons

  • Mike Says: The Cowboys will be in a fight for a playoff spot. This is a very tough district and every game will count. DB Jones will lead a very tough defense. Look for them to go 6-4 or 5-5 for the season and battle Rice Consolidated for that 3rd playoff spot.
  • Chris Says: Edna has had some good teams the past few seasons but they have been in one of the toughest districts in Class 2A.  This season, the Cowboys bring back a ton of experience and once again they will need it.  They should have no trouble making the playoffs, but they won’t win district.  Once in the playoffs, they should be battle tested enough to go two round deep.

Notes:
The Panthers have gone to the semifinals in 2008 and the quarterfinals in 2009. They should win their district but making it to the quarterfinals will be a longshot. There first playoff game will be against a very tough 14-2A DI that includes Rice Consolidated, Industrial and Edna. Expect the Panthers to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and if they don’t draw a tough first round playoff opponent, could make it three or four rounds deep.
