MADISONVILLE -- The Mustangs return five starters on offense and four on defense as they look to get back to their winning ways and return to the playoffs after a one year break. Madisonville’s strength on offense will be the line, led by returning starters Ethridge Brooks, Dalton Gilbert, and Julio Camarena. The Mustangs will need skill position players such as quarterback Ryan Clever and tailback Donta Crist to step up to help replace last season’s District 20-3A Offensive Co-MVP Anthony Manns. On defense the Mustangs return a key leader at each level: J.R. Gibson on the line, Jesse Cuevas at linebacker, and Grant Smith in the secondary. After two years of being in a district with teams along I-45 the Mustangs return to the west where they’ll rekindle district matchups with rivals such as Caldwell, Navasota, and Rockdale. District 18-3A will feature some fierce competition, but the Mustangs should be in the race for a playoff spot at seasons end, and their final game of the regular season at Taylor may very well end up deciding the final playoff spot out of 18-3A.
