PRE-SEASON

CLASS 6A

1.LAKE TRAVIS (2015: 15-1, 6A DII State Finalist)
-The Cavaliers are more-than-equipped to get back to the state title game and, this time, win their 1st state title as a Class 6A school. Fifteen starters return for coach Hank Carter including QB Charlie Brewer.

2.WESTLAKE (2015: 14-2, 6A DI State Finalist)
-The eyes of west Austin, and Texas, will be on the Chaps who will be lead by UT commit and pre-season all-everything quarterback Sam Ehlinger. Westlake returns 12 starters off of a team that made it to the 6A Division I State Championship Game in 2015. They'll be tested right away when they open the season at home against 2015 6A Division II State Champion Katy.

3.CEDAR RIDGE (2015: 10-2, Lost in 2nd round of 6A DI playoffs)\
-New coach Shawn Bell inherits an experienced team. The Raiders return 13 starters from a team that won 10 games in 2015.

4.VANDEGRIFT (2015: 11-3, Lost in 5A DI Regional Final)
-After recent succesful seasons in Class 5A, coach Drew Sanders and the Vipers begin life as a 6A school in a district with Lake Travis and Westlake. Fourteen returning starters from last year's 11-win team will help, but they must replace all-state running back Travis Brannan.

5.ROUND ROCK (2015: 8-3, Lost in 1st round of 6A DI playoffs)
-With only four offensive starters returning from last year, the Dragons may depend on their defense to contend for the district title with pre-season front-runner Cedar Ridge.

CLASS 5A

1.CEDAR PARK (2015: 16-0, 5A DII State Champion)
-What a first year it was for new Cedar Park head coach Carl Abseck. He and the Timberwolves were perfect in 2015, going 16-0 on their way to the school's 2nd state title. Two key pieces in the T'Wolves attempt to win back-to-back titles will be quarterback Mac Sexton (29 TD's in 2015) and RB Tyler Lavine (1290 yards rushing in '15).

2.GEORGETOWN (2015: 8-4, Lost in 2nd round of 5A DII playoffs)
-The consensus is that everyone is playing for second place in District 19-5A behind district newcomer Cedar Park, the defending 5A DII state champs. Georgetown looks to be the best of the rest heading into 2016. The Eagles look to 10 returning starters to get beyond the second round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated in 2015.

3.LBJ (2015: 8-3, Lost in 1st round of 5A DI playoffs)
-The Jaguars went 7-0 in district last season on its way to a league title, but they'll have to deal with former 6A team Austin High in order to win another district championship this year. Fourteen returning starters from last year's team will help.

4.ROUSE (2015: 2-8, Did not make post-season)
-The Raiders had a season to forget in 2015, winning only two games. This season has a much brighter outlook for a couple of reasons: 1)Rouse is moving from Class 6A down to Class 5A, 2)The Raiders return 15 starters from last year, more than anyone else in District 19-5A. The Class 6A depth that Rouse will boast in their new Class 5A district might make them a darkhorse in a league that includes Cedar Park.

5.AUSTIN HIGH (2015: 7-4, Lost in 1st round of 6A DII playoffs)
-Coach Mike Rosenthal's Maroons move down from Class 6A to Class 5A this season, and a squad that won 7 games and made the playoffs in 2015 will look to contend with LBJ for a district title. One drawback? The Maroons will have a lot of new faces, returning only eight starters from last year's team, including three on offense.

CLASS 4A

1.LA GRANGE (2015: 7-4, Lost in 1st round of 4A DII playoffs)
-The Leopards sport perhaps the best player in all of Texas: running back J.K. Dobbins. The Ohio State commit rushed for an astounding 2,740 yards and 35 touchdowns in 2015. Sure, La Grange returns 13 other starters from last year, but Dobbins will be the focal point in the Leps' quest to make a deep playoff run after a disappointing first-round exit from the post-season in 2015. 

2.GIDDINGS (2015: 12-1, Lost in 2nd round of 4A DII playoffs)
-Most of the attention in district play might have gone to J.K. Dobbins and La Grange in 2015, but the Leps may have traded the attention for the season Giddings had. The Buffs went under the radar to win their 1st 12 games and a district title. Giddings will depend on returning starters on defense to corral Dobbins and the rest of District 10-4A DII in order to repeat as district champions. 

3.LIBERTY HILL (2015: 10-3, 4A DI Region Semi-Finalist)
-The Panthers had their usual solid season in 2015 and should compete for a district title that eluded them a year ago. Their main hurdle in district play will be defending 4A DI State Champion Waco La Vega.

4.WIMBERLEY (2015: 5-8, 4A DII Region Semi-Finalist)
-Talk about finishing the season hot. The Texans lost eight games in 2015, but got hot enough at the end of the season to go 3-1 in district play and make it all the way to the region semi-finals in the playoffs. Getting off to a faster start this season should happen with 16 returning starters, the most in District 13-4A DII. Biggest game of the year is on October 21st, when the Texans play at district favorite Geronimo Navarro.

5.TAYLOR (2015: 4-7, Lost in 1st round of 4A DI playoffs)
-Could the Ducks win a district title this season? Nine returning starters on defense says the will. The biggest hurdle between the Ducks and a district title in 2016 could be Boerne, who Taylor beat last season.

CLASS 3A

1.ROCKDALE (2015: 9-3, Lost in 2nd round of 3A DI playoffs)
-With 15 starters returning from last year's 9-win team, the Tigers have their sights set on a district title. It may happen if they can get past, guess who, arch-rival and 2015 state finalist Cameron Yoe.

2.BLANCO (2015: 12-1, 3A DII Region Semi-Finalist)
-Blanco only has five returning starters from last year's 12-1 campaign, but the Panthers should still be in line for a district title and another deep run in the post-season in '16. Lexington could be the Panthers biggest challenger.

3.LULING (2015: 5-6, Lost in 2nd round of 3A DI playoffs)
-New faces will lead the Eagles quest for a district title this season as only six starters return from 2015's team.

4.LEXINGTON (2015: 5-6, Lost in 1st round of 3A DII playoffs)
-The Eagles are looking to return to the prominence they enjoyed last decade. Fourteen returning starters, incuding linebacker Chase Allert (son of former Texas standout Ty Allert), will lead the way in competing for a district title with heavyweights Rogers and Johnson City.

5.JOHNSON CITY (2015: 8-3, Lost in 1st round of 2A DII playoffs)
-Johnson City makes the move from Class 2A to 3A in 2016, but should be able to compete with Lexington and Blanco for a district title with 14 returning starters from last year's eight-win team.

CLASS 2A/OTHERS

1.MASON (2015: 11-1, lost in 2nd round of 2A DI area playoffs)
-Not often that Mason isn't playing football in December, but that was the case last season when the Punchers suffered an unchracteristic 2nd round loss in the playoffs. As usual, Mason is picked to win its district this year. Eleven returning starters lead by running back Haddon Hudson (18 rushing TDs in 2015) will be looked to for another district title, not to mention getting the program back to playoff games in December.

2.FLATONIA (2015: 7-6, 2A DI Region Semi-Finalist)
-Last season, the Bulldogs had the deepest playoff run of any of this year's teams in our pre-season "2A/Others" rankings, making it to the region semi-finals before losing. 2016 should be another solid year, with 13 starters returning.

3.GRANGER (2015: 5-6, lost in 1st round of 2A DII playoffs)
-Granger got back to the way things used to be in 2015 by making the post-season. Now, the Lions are poised to eclipse last year's win total of five and to make a deeper run in the post-season, with 13 returning starters including three-year starting QB Wyatt Messex.

4.THRALL (2015: 7-4, Lost in 1st round of 2A DI playoffs)
-Some think the Tigers will be on the outside looking in come post-season time in 2016. Hard to see that happening with 13 returning starters, including QB Nick Salazar, from last season's seven-win team.

5.HARPER (2015: 3-8, Lost in 1st round of 2A DI playoffs)
-The Longhorns won only three games in 2015, but were a playoff team. Winning district in 2016 may be a stretch with state-power Mason in the same league, but exceeding last year's win total and another playoff appearance should be expected with 14 returning starters.
