CALVERT, TX -- Young players gained plenty of experience and should have the Trojans back in the mix as one of the best 6-man teams in the state in 2012.
The team’s confidence should be high, as many of the football players were part of the Trojans state championship winning basketball team last season. Proving they can win it all could be a driving force for the football team to repeat the feat.
Tyrone Huffman is back to lead what should be a potent Trojan offense, and he will have all-state wide receiver Zaccheus Williams and running back Ja’Mikel Brown as weapons.
Calvert will need to develop some strength on the offensive and defensive lines to be as successful.
Three all-district players return on defense as well, led by nose tackle Jayquail Brown. Taron Gipson and Corey Chopp will tough for opposing teams to throw on at cornerback.
The Trojans will play another tough non-district schedule, facing five teams who made the playoffs in 2011.
The Trojans new district is spread out to say the least, but Karnack and Trinidad visit Calvert. The district title should come down to the season finale at Milford, the only other team in the district who made the playoffs a year ago.
