Yes. I saw them in person. They were the most dominant team I've ever seen, especially on defense, and I've seen a LOT of football.

Hard to say, times and athletes have changed.

No contest, go look at the film on them, they were big, fast, quick, and just plain good. I saw them play and I am 56 years old. I have missed maybe 10 friday nights of watching high school football. They were the best I have ever seen. A once and a life time team at the high school level.

I think it would get ugly quick, just like it did for teams that played them then. Their defense allowed an average of less than ONE FOOT PER PLAY the entire 16-game season. Most of the time they had players in the opponents backfield faster than a QB could hand the ball off, and they did NOT miss tackles. On the rare occasion that they did there were always three or four more players surrounding the play to clean up the leftovers. The spread would give a maximum of 2 seconds lead time, but then they had to deal with the corners who were the best cover tandems I've ever seen.

I have never seen better. All of true ETexas football fans followed DF in 83. We all became DF fans. Those boys had talant but they also had heart and great coaching. Gives me a chill

Only points scored on them 2 by Kilgore and 6 By Carthage. Those schools were 4A then and Carthage went to semi-finals. Best football team I ever saw.

Yes, this debate gets brought up 2 or 3 times a year; could the '83 Tigers beat the '85 Yates team? Could they beat one of the great Longview teams? Etc. etc. Debaters try to take what offenses and defenses that were run then versus what is done now and compare. Passing is done much more so now than then. Could they defend the pass consistently? My belief is if you put that same group of guys together today, with the current trends, they would still dominate. They would adapt both offensively and defensively. For those that say, "but they were 3A and did not have the depth so they could not beat a 5A school. Do the math and either ratio 3A up or 5A down and consider the talent per capita.

Played against them in '82 and watched them play in '83.

Hands down the greatest team.

There's no question that Dangerfield was the best team ever. That team was dominant, and if they would have played the 5A Champion Converse Judson and 4A Champion Bay City.

It wouldn't be close and i'm talking about the '83 team on the losing end. As dominant as they were, the recent teams would beat them soundly. Bigger, faster, stronger.
