BUFFALO, Texas -- The Bison look to snap a two year playoff drought with a team that returns six starters on offense and three starters on defense. Logan Jones returns to lead the offense at quarterback. Head coach Mark Read says, “He has great speed and a strong arm. He should be a tremendous weapon for us as a four-year letter man.” Jones will have two starting linemen back in Jacob Deborde and Trent Martin, tall wide receiver Tyler Adams, tight end Kyle Read, and wing back Adam Simpson. Simpson may have the toughest job as he tries to replace second-team all-state running back Jose Dominguez, who averaged over 200 yards rushing per game a year ago.
The defense returns Read at linebacker and Jones and JJ Kolb at cornerback, but will be in search of new starters up front. Ty Bryson, Reid Courmier, and Cameron Hughes have experience and should fill in nicely on the line.
The Bison will get to play two of their toughest district games at home as they host Crawford to kick off 11-2A Division II play September 27 and rival Centerville October 25. Picking up wins in those games would go a long way in the Bison making a return trip to the postseason for the first time since 2010.
