BUFFALO, TX -- The Bison have the talent to return to the postseason after a one-year hiatus, and they plan on putting in the work to get there. “We expect this group to get us back in the playoffs,” said Read.
The Bison offense returns nine starters, none more impressive that second team all-state running back Jose Dominguez, who ran wild through opposing defenses in 2011.
He ran for over 300 yards in game twice last season, going for 325 against Bremond and 321 against Grapeland. Dominguez will be the beneficiary of having four returning starters on the offensive line to block for him, and all four earned an all-district honor in 2011.
Tate Hartley and Logan Jones will battle it out for snaps at quarterback. Six starters are back on defense, four in what should be a strong secondary, Dominguez at linebacker, and Ivan Rivas on the line.
The Bison move to a tough eight-team district that will make reaching the postseason a challenge.
Buffalo will have to play what looks like their toughest district games on the road at Crawford, Centerville, and Riesel, but if they take care of business at home the Bison will be in the mix to get into the playoffs for the fourth time in the past five years.
