Football District Line-Up

Overview of White Oak’s District Opponents


Kason Kienzle   Sports Editor





Hughes Springs Mustangs – Hughes Springs has always been known as a very physical football team, and it seems no different this year. They provide a challenge to any team they face just by their physicality. Before this year, Hughes Springs had been known as a team to chew up the clock and be a run first team. This year they look to be transferring to more of a spread offense and then going back to a run first offense, once they enter the red zone. They look to be the toughest competitor to district champion favorite, White Oak.

Jefferson Bulldogs – Jefferson always seems to be loaded with athletes. Their athleticism is the best part about their team. They provide more of a balanced offense but tend to run more with 263.2 rush yards per game and 149 pass yards per game. Their coach, Antwain Jimmerson, is a Jefferson Alumni and has a tradition of success in coaching. Look for them to be a possible dark horse in the region.

New Boston Lions – New Boston is also known for always having athletes. In the past they have had very good football teams, but have seemed to fall off in the past couple years. They are a well-coached football team and know how to play the game. Even though the Lions only average 13.2 points a game, they look to have a shot into making the playoffs and grabbing one of the top four spots in the district.

Redwater Dragons – Redwater has always been known as a time-eating, running offense. They feature a very basic offense, but it can be effective when run well. The 2016 Dragons feature a good mix of upperclassmen and newcomers, with 10 seniors. Look for them to be a possible playoff team, with a good chance of grabbing the 3rd or 4th spot in the district standings.
