Texas Football on Hornets, Bobcats

We’ve reported on Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine’s predictions that the Liberty Panthers and Barbers Hill Eagles football teams will both reach the state playoffs this season while the Dayton Broncos are projected to just miss out on post-season.  Now we’ll take a look at that storied publication’s prognostications for some of the other teams from Liberty and Chambers counties. A reminder - this is first year of UIL realignments for the 2018 through 2020 school years. This alignment places the Hardin Hornets in District 12-3A, Division 1. This eight-team district includes Hardin, Anahuac and East Chambers from last year and adds Buna, Kirbyville, Orangefield, Warren and Woodville. The Texas Football writers project the Woodville Eagles to win that district’s championship and finish twelfth statewide. By UIL rule, four teams from each Class 3A district advance to the playoffs. Also expected to move on to the post-season from that district are the East Chambers Buccaneers, Orangefield Bobcats and Buna Cougars. If those predictions are correct, both the Anahuac Panthers and Hardin Hornets would miss out on post-season action along with the Kirbyville Wildcats and Warren Warriors. As for the Hull-Daisetta Bobcats, changes to the new UIL classification system have them in District 12-2A, Division 1 with five new opponents. That six-team district includes Hull-Daisetta, Deweyville, Groveton, San Augustine, Shelbyville and Pineland West Sabine. The popular statewide gridiron publication slots the San Augustine Wolves as the sixth best team in the Class 2A Pre-Season Top 20 for Division 1. By rule, four teams from each 2A district also advance to the playoffs. If the sports writers at Texas Football are correct with their picks, as they often are, San Augustine will win the District 12-2A title. The magazine projects the Groveton Indians to finish in second place followed by the Shelbyville Dragons and Deweyville Pirates. That would mean the Hull-Daisetta Bobcats and Pineland West Sabine Tigers would miss out on the playoffs. Once more, Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine is now on newsstands. Published since 1960, those gridiron experts pick East Chambers, Liberty and Barbers Hill to make the playoffs this year out of their respective districts with Dayton, Anahuac, Hardin and Hull-Daisetta all facing an uphill battle to advance. KSHN will have more details from the magazine’s roundup of local teams in coming newscasts.
