Another revamped district is District 16-3A. Moving down from 4A are Carthage and Tyler Chapel Hill. Center and Rusk move north to join district 16 after spending the past two seasons in District 20.
The Roughriders are looking to turn things around. They were just 4-6 last season after making a playoff run in 2000. Running back John Handy should be one of the top backs in the state. He rushed for over 16-hundred yards as a junior last season.
Joining him are 16 other returning starters. With that kind of experience, the Riders should be right back in the playoff hunt.
