I like the alto vs Groveton to start the year. Hiull is waste of time though. 

Played Hull a few times in the playoffs back in the day. Can’t recall playing them in the regular season. Surprised me.

Glad to always have Groveton on the schedule!

Well, I see Garrison is not on the schedule ... usually a good game over the years ....

Wait, I thought your mighty Bulldogs didn’t stoop to playing teams in the peewee leagues?

Well Alto usually isn't in that league .... and they have had a lot of success at higher classifications .... they aren't your average peewee league team ....

You’re right about that one. Last two seasons they’ve been well below average. Yet you’re still pining to play them.

Well, if you play them over at their place, you're two touchdowns behind when you get off the bus 🚌  ....

Hull’s numbers are way down I’m pretty I remember reading they only had like 14 kids playing football

One season*.  2022 was pretty good. 3 losses by a combined 13 points to 2 higher division teams and in district to Tenaha by 1 point. Beat state ranked and undefeated Carlisle, 3 others in a higher division, and won the “on-the-field” district championship. Ugh and lol

Anyways, last year….definitely “well below average” and then some.

Dang! Any idea why?

Idk I’m just glad we don’t have to play in that district again. It’s so bad and far away from us. This year we will be in football shape come playoffs. Should be good games without a running clock

I looked up their enrollment it’s 101 and they opted to move up and play 11 man. 

I didn’t realize their numbers were that low. Looked at their schedule from the last two seasons and they managed to win 8 games….more than us actually BUT our schedule was a wee bit more challenging.

We are definitely in rebuild mode. We do have everyone coming back except one starting lineman and our QB. Incoming freshmen are talented with good numbers who won district as 8th graders. 7th grade won district as well. They’re on the way; we just have to be patient.🤞🙌 I also think our numbers will be good enough to complete a JV season again. We should be back on track very soon.

Not anymore Alto was 0-10 awful I’d say year before that they were pretty good , but they need a lot of things to change for them to get any better they’ll be lucky to win 3 games this upcoming year if anything like last .  By the way kids on last year team for Alto based on what I saw had a bit of an attitude problem.

The Alto program will be just fine. The kids competed hard in the situation they were in and with that behind them, look out. They are flush with athletes. Trust me.

If Mt.E finds a defense that can stop anyone the Ashe kid will roll them to a DC. LL will need to reload but could easily find a way to win the DC as well. Feels like Tenaha, Grapeland, and Overton will be fighting for the final 2 playoff spots. Alto will need to rebuild from the ground up after last year.

Heard Mount E had a change at Defensive Coordinator. Gilmer and West Rusk pedigree.

Happens that way sometime. I’ll still contend that our ‘95 team who beat state-ranked teams in Groveton and Refugio before falling to Celina in the state championship could arguably be our best team. (NOT taking anything away from our state champs in ‘06 and ‘07! They got it done!) Matchups, talent, coaching, and a little luck go a long way in winning a championship.

Those Chilton and Bremond teams over the years have been tough. Throw in Wortham and Golthwaite (state champs also!) along with perennial Mart and you’ve got 🔥. Makes Texas high school football what it is!

Those guys were very good that year
