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.

Keller’s start to set up hopeful late-season advantage

Keller won’t be the first local football team to take to the field, but it will certainly be the first to get on the bus in preparation for the season opener. And the time it takes to drive the 157 miles to Abilene’s Shotwell Stadium will hopefully pay dividends for the Indians when the district standings race gets tight.

Eagles DE lining up for first time, again

The fact that Haslet Eaton football is playing its first varsity season, complete with all kinds of “firsts” at every turn, can be overwhelming enough. For Eaton’s Nick Lanum, though, he’s doing all his firsts for the very first time, without the aid of a JV 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.
