I’m not a guru by any means.  Just asked a simple question to C&C regarding the QB position.

If I had to guess I’d say the Carthage QB will be the JV QB from last year. About the same size as Horton.

Those actual DoDs were highly entertaining, even for fans like me, who have no ties to those schools. I also will say that was kinda the only real DoD. That moniker gets tossed around pretty casually

It would be a fun storyline, no doubt! For over a decade Celina was what Carthage is now (and has been for also a decade+), and it was the Dawgs who essentially ended that reign in 2008 and took

Is that the kid that also plays 3rd base in baseball? If so he has a CANNON!

Okay. You have a Tatum guy (Cowboy) Who is been a Carthage fan since their success "lately". Back when they didn't make it all the way he was a "Tatum" fan.

15 use to be the "guru" of Carthage football all of sudden he takes on SH. Now he's still a guru on the Dawgs.

# 10 is they lost one under Sleepy. Hope this helps.

Ahh ok, gotcha. I think I was confused because you quoted me but were talking about someone else. Thought you were talking about me 😂

This is what I'm hearing as well.  How often have the Dawgs had a running QB?  Sure,  Morgan had some wheels,  but how often did he use them?  There may have been more,  but the one I most recall was that game in hendo in 2010? maybe.  A running QB is at more risk of being injured. This is no knock against Rock.  Saw him makes some great throws last year.  Only time will tell.  We'll all know in about 5-6 months.

You think that’s what Carthage needs to put themselves over the top? 

If I thought that I’d of said it.

#9 on the way.   D will be the game changer.   

D will definitely be good.....But one d-lineman graduating and Coach P probably losing another d-lineman probably will hurt a little, at least for a few games.

Losing another d lineman?

I just can't see anyone stopping Carthage on that side of the bracket in Div. II. If they have a serviceable offense, they'll get back to the championship game. That defense will be crazy good. Even if it was just Kip Lewis coming back, I'd probably be saying the same things.

I know Gilmer will be good again, but I'll say Celina makes it back to the state title game again after a six-year drought. Bobcats bring back a ton of talent from a young team that went through some growing pains last year and ended up probably going a little farther than expected, and yet, somehow, not as far as expected once the train finally got moving.

Bobcats vs Dawgs in 2021 ... both playing for No. 9

Which other D linemen besides K lister. 
the other three were juniors. 
Another junior number 80 played in every game and not just as a back up.

Now that would be a very compelling storyline! I wouldn't mind seeing that.

For over a decade Celina was what Carthage is now (and has been for also a decade+), and it was the Dawgs who essentially ended that reign in 2008 and took over the mantle as THE premier powerhouse (speaking in relative small-school context here), which kept the Bobcats from that elusive ninth state title.

To see the old power (looking for a return to relevancy) rise up again to take on the new order which ended its canonical reign, both vying for that ninth trophy. Yeah, I'll take that, both as a TXHSFB fan in general and a Celina fan!

C&C - Cotton is usually on point.  So when he says “losing” it could be to a move or it could be to the offensive side of the ball.  Both returning interior DL were really good OL at the sub varsity level.  It would make sense to protect a new QB with your best dudes, especially if the incoming Jr class has a couple of DL that can play immediately.

If it doesn't work out that way, If you wrote a book or short story about it I'd read it. Haha.  The way you described it got me pumped for the possibility entirely too soon!

I never thought about that way. 
I hope we have good O linemen coming up because that defense could be in the Daingerfield of 83 class. Not 14 shut out good but dominating good. Even better than last year.

S S would not want a really athletic center or guard, would he ? 😁

That was nice.  Pretty new? I've never seen it before.  

I think it was done in December right before we played Gilmer in the state championship game.

Do we know what our schedule is next season? 

I've tried to find it on the school's new website (which is a mess by the way) and didn't see it.
