  1. If you look at common teams, Class A DII top ranked Roxton beat Melissa 71-38 and Cooper has beaten Roxton twice.
  2. That would be a really tough football district. I would like to see it happen, but doubtful it will.
  3. Cooper is currently ranked 16th in 2A-Division II and Honey Grove is ranked 16th in 1A-Division I according to MaxPreps. This game is a great Northeast Texas rivalry, but in the end, I see the Bulldogs taking this one.
  4. The Paris News Brent Wilburn DETROIT — Lance Connot has been hired as the athletic director/head football coach at Detroit High School. The hire was made official during a special school board meeting this past week. He replaces former head football coach Stuart Proctor, who has been reassigned to other duties within the school district. In his position as athletic director, Connot replaces longtime athletic director Mike Barley. Barley, who has been employed by Detroit ISD since 1991, will remain employed at the school as head baseball coach. "We decided as a district to combine the head football coach and athletic director positions, which is the way it's done in most school districts," Detroit ISD Superintendent Steve Drummond said. "It hasn't been done like that in Detroit in a while, so we decided to combine them." Connot, who turns 24 in May, has been an assistant football coach at Detroit for the past two years and was defensive coordinator in 2010. "It feels really good to have these responsibilities and duties at this young age," Connot said. "It's a big compliment to the hard work I've been putting in, and it's good to see my hard work pay off." Connot is a native of the Red River Valley area. He graduated from Prairiland High School, and his father Rick is head baseball coach and an assistant football coach at Prairiland. Now, he's ready to continue his career with his promotion on the Detroit High School campus. "I've learned some good things from other coaches here, and I learned more about the community our kids come from," Lance Connot said. "Detroit is a tight-knit community, and I'm looking forward to the support I will get from them." Proctor was head coach of the Eagles for two seasons. He was 4-17 in two seasons as head coach but guided them to the playoffs this past season, which was their first playoff berth since 1999. Drummond also confirmed the resignation of head basketball coach Dwight McCowan, who just completed his first year as head coach at Detroit. A decision on the future of that position likely will be decided at the next school board meeting on March 21. *Article published by The Paris News
  5. Any news on this coaching search? Will Mt. Vernon ISD be releasing a list of applicants or finalists? I would be interested in seeing who all applied for this position.
  6. The coach is Randy Jackson, the former Head Coach/Athletic Director at Lone Oak. Yes, the quarterback, Beau Nowell, was injured during the game and was diagnosed with a broken tibia. This season was great effort and sense of inspiration for other teams to build up. Mesquite Poteet was a combined 1-19 over the past two seasons, and with a change of attitude and Coach Jackson putting his stamp on the program, they are now enjoying a lot of success. These kids fought hard and had me rooting for them throughout the season. Congratulations to the Mesquite Poteet School District, players, coaches and fans on a terrific season!
  7. In my opinion, Paul Pewitt and Cooper are at a different level than the other teams in this district. But as with any team, they both must stay focused and finish the district strong and hope that momentum stays with them in the playoffs. Good luck to all district teams!
  8. Both teams have pretty explosive offenses. Defensively I believe the edge goes to Cooper, they have held some good offenses to low scores. Cooper has a lot of speed, which gave Pewitt problems against Clarksville. I believe that it is a pretty evenly matched game, with the winner being decided by whoever shows up to play Friday. Good luck to both teams. I will try to have a in-depth game outlook posted later in the week. If anyone can contribute any information that would be great.
  9. With the start of district, is their any "last minute" predictions on how this district will turn out?
