Head Coach: Cody Gilbert

District: 6-3A DI

School Colors: Red, White, Blue

Stadium Address: 5424 FM 1252, Gladewater, TX 75647

2021 record: 7-4

Notes: Sabine has a new man in charge with Cody Gilbert coming to town from Azle where he served as the defensive coordinator. He will have to build a team with just three starters back on offense and four back on defense. The front seven of the defense is talented so Gilbert will use that as the foundation of his new team. Coach Gilbert: “We will be inexperienced overall early in the season. We will have to play a handful of Sophomores in key roles, and our growth in non-district will be vital to our success.” Players to Watch: “Cayden Fortson will be an intricate piece of our program on offense and defense. Cayden will play outside WR and corner. We believe Cayden is one of the top talents in Texas. DE Kaden Richards is a returning starter on defense, and has had a tremendous off season. We expect him to exceed the results he had in 2021. Riley Roys is a senior OLB and WR. He has the ability to be a true hybrid player on defense, and help us utilize 3 down and 4 down looks. Austin Swanson is a returning player at linebacker. He had over 70 tackles as a sophomore, and will be a leader in our defensive front 7. Dawson Brooks is an offensive and defensive lineman that played pivotal minutes on the 2021 team. He has had a great off-season, and has become a team leader with his work ethic and habits.”
