2019 Record: 4-7/ 2-4 district

Notes: Injuries suffered by Hunter Johnson and Landon Liles who go both ways on offense and defense on the line was a downer for the Tiger. Their return in 2020 is sure to be a welcome signt, and with QB Mason Johnson running the offense don’t be suprised to see Linden-Kildaire make waves.

  • DL Vincent Peaters
  • OL/DL Landlone Liles

Notes: Johnson is expected to handle the Tigers’ offense this season while Tyson has potential “star power” according to the Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine. Kunze is coming back a fourth time as a two-way starter.
