Former Caldwell star Bobby Jack Goforth returns to his hometown and hopes to turn around the fortunes of the Hornets. Goforth played at Caldwell from 1982-1984 before a college career at Baylor. He has been the head coach at San Antonio John Jay the past six seasons, compiling a record of 23-37. Goforth will have some work ahead of him as the third new Hornets coach in the past three seasons, but with seven starters back on offense Caldwell could be much improved in 2013. Quarterback will be a question mark, but the new signal caller will have three returning offensive linemen to work behind and three receivers back to throw to along with tight end Josh Hitchcock. The Hornet defense returns just three starters to a unit that gave up over 51 points per game a year ago. The non-district schedule looks pretty tough with games at 3A Division II state semifinalist Bellville, Giddings (6-4 in 2012) and improving Hearne (7-5) and home contests against Robinson (6-4) and 2A Division I quarterfinalist Franklin (10-3). Caldwell has had a rough past few seasons, but things are looking up for the Hornets to be much improved in 2013.
