Head Coach: Jason Pitts

District: 11-3A Division II

School Colors: Navy, Gold

Stadium Address: 11826 State Hwy 154 East, Diana, TX 75640

2022 record: 2-8

Notes: The New Diana Eagles look to get back into the playoffs this season after missing the postseason the last 3 years. Last season, the Eagles finished with a 2-8 record. The Eagles return 9 starters on offense and defense. Close games last season that could have gone either way, have optimism high in New Diana. Coach Jason Pitts returns this season along with most of the coaching staff, after replacing nearly every coach last summer. Large amounts of returning starters and team members, along with a familiar offense and defense should help the Eagles improve. Coach Pitts’ biggest concern is the offensive line, but he says more athletes in the program will give more depth to every position. Cohle Sherman is a 3-year starter on defense and was second on the team in tackles last season. Jaiydyn Johnson is a dynamic athlete who will be an integral part of the team. Ayden Hamilton is a 6′4 TE/DE with an unmatched motor and athleticism. Landon Holly qualified for the state track meet in the 100m dash and Coach Pitts believes no one in the district can run with him.
