Last season saw Andrews face a second round exit from the playoffs to Brownwood in a rivalry that had seen history between the two teams.

Andrews will stay in District 2-4AD1 with the El Paso area teams of San Elizario, both Clint, Mountain View and Fabens. With realignment, Argyle moved into Region I and could be trouble for a potential deep playoff run. The district isn’t the best on paper but could prove to be pivotal come playoff time. With that said, teams will have to prep up a tough non-district slate and Andrews did just that.

The Mustangs will open up on August 26th at home against San Angelo Lake View, then travel to Lubbock to face the Lubbock High Westerners at Lowery Field.

Then, a tough Levelland will come into the Mustang Bowl on September 9th. Two road trips to Monahans and Big Spring will also be tough for the Mustangs. The big test will be the homecoming game against 5A Lubbock Coronado to end the non-district schedule.

Honorable mention all-state returnee Triston Williams returns to lead the Mustang offense and could potentially, lead them to a deep playoff run. Another all-state returnee, Keegan Thompson will also return to be the main defensive back in the secondary. After being sidelined by injury, Torey Kelly will also be a player to watch. Kelly rushed for 15 touchdowns in 2014.

Andrews will have to be poised to have a successful playoff season but look to be playing football during Thanksgiving time. The tough road will begin in the non-district slate and in order to be successful, the Mustangs will have to win the bulk of their non-district games.
