2020 was a tough year for everyone and 5-3A turned out to be one of the toughest districts in the state. What does 2021 have in store?

Bonham:  2-8 (1 forfeit) Their best playmaker #4 graduates, they seemed to rely on him for everything. Need to develop more ball carriers.

Commerce: 5-5 (3 forfeits) They graduate their backfield but always seem to have new playmakers show up. As always discipline is in need for the Tigers.

Howe: 0-10 (1 forfeit)  The Bulldogs just need to be able to get some first downs and sustain drives, get some experience in close games. Maybe get a win or two in pre-district.

Mineola: 11-2 Dist.Champs  Both losses to MV. Jackets lose Sneed and Anderson to graduation, both D1 signees. Mineola needs to develop more ball handlers so Pendergrass isn't the only option. Moreland did a great job in his first year at QB, Jackets need more of a passing game with multiple reads instead of just 3-4 of the same routs. 

Mount Vernon: 12-3 (2 forfeits) Tigers lose playmaker Nellor, and Coach Briles left for bigger and better things. Will have to wait and see who the new coach is but whoever it is will have a deep roster to pull from. 

Pottsboro: 9-3 (2 forfeits) Cards lose Plyler but Coach Poe always finds new talent to take over. They were up and down for 2020 mainly due to QB playing hurt for most of the year. Loss to Malakoff had to hurt after seeing MV beat Mally. 

Rains: 6-4 Wildcats will be looking for new coach and a new playmaker after the graduation of Sheppard. I believe McCree took over for some games and did a good job. Wildcats need more discipline, have way too many flags to win against good teams. 

Winnsboro: 7-3  (1 forfeit)  Raiders will be in good shape with Coach Finney and are suppose to have some players moving up though the program to make an impact.

So what do ya'll think.....

Imo,

I could see it going

W-Mv/winny

R-Winny/Mv

3rd-4th-Minny/Potts/rains (any one of these teams could take it) I would say minny for third because of the qb and Pendergrass coming back. Potts will be looking for reamp their offense next season. Rains shows some promise coming into this season. 

I don't think district 5 will be as stacked as this past season. 

Imo, region 2 is anyone's to take again this up coming season. There's not a clear favorite. My favorite will be Tatum.

I think there will be alot of intriguing story lines. New coach in MV will definitely inherit some talent and it will be interesting to see which route he goes offensively based on there not just being a clear cut #1 qb returning. Winny will return a good number of talented players but will have to replace several key guys that have been contributors for the past 2-3 years. Coach Finneys son will become the qb and he brings a passing dynamic as well as the ability to run so it will be interesting to see how the offense looks next year. The defense should be a strength with the addition of younger players from the JV that hasnt lost a game the past 2 seasons. Minny should be solid again. In my opinion, the top 4 teams will be very similar to this past years top 4 with the order a toss up

Man y’all should be a favorite. You’ve had the same set of kids for the last 4 years. If they don’t do something this year y’all will be out of excuses. Y’all can win the region out of the 2 spot in district. Good luck.
