Bobcats not hung up on difficulty of district

Northwest Byron Nelson has a new football coach. It has a roster that carries only 30 seniors. It’s moving into a district (5-6A) that features traditional powers Southlake Carroll and Euless Trinity. It’s changing defenses. There’s only one defensive starter returning. You’re probably wondering what’s realistic about the 2016 season.

Central expects strong season with experience, youth

The Keller Central football team always seems to have plenty of youth mixed in with its experienced players, and this season appears to be no different. The Chargers missed out on the playoffs last year but have enough returning talent and promising youth to make a new run at the postseason.

Lady Bobcats libero fits position’s definition

A quick look at Urban Dictionary shows a definition which gives a more perfect description of Trophy Club Nelson libero Elle Duis: “The best passer in a volleyball team. Wears a different color of shirt. Usually the smallest on the team but is also the most fiestiest [sic].” Grammar and spelling aside, that’s Duis.

Lady Falcons runner brings leadership, humor, confidence to team

Marisabel “Mimi” Garza helped the Keller Timber Creek girls to a second-place finish at the District 5-6A cross country meet and a regional berth in 2015, and the junior distance runner wants even more this season. Garza (18:45.42) was the top runner at the regional meet for the Lady Falcons in 2015, helping the team to a sixth place finish.

Texans’ expectations high with drop to 5A, returning talent

Expectations can be subjective. But when it comes to Justin Northwest football’s 2016 prospects, the expectations seem pretty universal. A team that was coming off a rough 2015 (1-9) has the aspirations of making the postseason now that it has moved down to Class 5A. Head coach Bill Poe isn’t underselling those forecasts.

Eagles aim to defy first-year expectations

The benefit of being a first-year varsity football program is that no one expects anything. What is likely anticipated is that it will be a long season where blowouts are the norm and depth will be challenged. But that’s not how Northwest V.R. Eaton head coach Brad Turner sees it.

Keller to be well-centered

Alec Luikens has played all along the offensive line since his sophomore year, but the senior will shift back to center for the coming season. With over 45 seniors having graduated from last year’s Keller football team, Luikens’ importance as the anchor of the young offensive line is even greater.
