Every week I hope to do predictions for a different football district in our area. I’ll pick the top four teams (reminder that four teams from each district make the playoffs) in order of how I think they’ll finish.
District 10-5A (listed by UIL alphabetically)
Lancaster. Mansfield Lake Ridge, Mansfield Legacy, Mansfield Summit, Mansfield Timberview, Midlothian, Red Oak, Waxahachie
Move over, Lake Ridge.
The impressive run by Mansfield Lake Ridge let to a perfect regular season and district championship, but I think this year it will be Lancaster’s turn at the top. Yes, quarterback Ryan Ross, who lit up the area to the tune of 3,242 yards and 42 touchdowns, is graduated but the Tigers have so many weapons returning that it’s not hard to envision a similar offensive outburst in 2016.
