Head Coach: Joe Cluley

District: 8-5A II

School Colors: Black, Gold

Stadium Address: 3220 North Edwards, Mt. Pleasant, TX 75456

2021 Record: 4-6

Notes: Joe Cluley takes over for a team that finished lost in the first round of the playoffs last season. With Jacksonville out of the district there is little room for error in picking up wins to get into the playoffs. Not many starters are back with just two returning on offense and three on defense. The kids are buying into the new system but it could take time to get comfortable with the system. Players to watch: “Kyler Smith: Starting TE, Kyler is a physical and explosive player who will be a big part of what we will do on offense from catching the ball in space to blocking out on the egde. Mason McMinn: Starting QB, Mason is a kid with high football IQ and is a dual threat QB who will add multiple dimensions to our offense. Braylon Jones: Starting RB, Braylon is a physical, downhill runner who is tough to bring down and will add another layer of physicality to our offense. Ricky Sampson: Starting on the DL, Ricky is a very strong and technically sound kid who does things right and is a competitor. LaTristan Thompson: Starting at CB, LaTristan is an extremely athletic kid who has great ball skills and an incredible work ethic. Dylan Bennett: KR/PR, Dylan is going to return kicks and punts for us and is one of the fastest kids in the state having run a laser 10.55 100 meter dash during track season.”
