Texas Football projections for Indians, Longhorns

We’ve reported on Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine’s predictions for 7 of the 9 high school football teams in Liberty and Chambers counties. Now we’ll take a look at that storied publication’s prognostications for the other two teams in Liberty County – the Cleveland Indians and the Tarkington Longhorns. A reminder - this is first year of UIL realignments for the 2018 through 2020 school years. We have mentioned the Cleveland school district has seen a dramatic rise in student numbers, and with that, comes a move up in classification. This alignment places the Cleveland Indians in the eight-team District 10-5A, Division 2. Cleveland now faces Bryan Rudder, College Station A&M Consolidated, Huntsville, Katy Paetow (pay-tow), Montgomery, Montgomery Lake Creek and Rosenberg Lamar Consolidated. Texas Football magazine expects that district to have tough competition with three teams in the Pre-Season Top 20 for Class 5A. The A&M Consolidated Tigers are ranked fourth statewide while the Huntsville Hornets and Montgomery Bears are slotted at 14th and 20th statewide. By UIL rule, four teams from each Class 5A district advance to state. With those three teams expected to take the first three slots, the writers at Texas Football predict the Lamar Consolidated Mustangs to secure the final post-season spot out of District 10-5A. If accurate, that would mean the Cleveland Indians would not advance in their first season in Class 5A. As for the Tarkington Longhorns, they are in the five-team District 9-4A, Division 2 along with Shepherd, Center, Huntington and Jasper. By UIL rule, four of those five teams will also advance. Experts at Texas Football project the Jasper Bulldogs to earn that district’s crown as the 13th best Class 4A team statewide in pre-season Division 2 polls. Also projected to move on to the playoffs are the Center Roughriders, Shepherd Pirates and Huntington Red Devils. If true, that would mean the Tarkington Longhorns would miss out on post-season action.  Published since 1960, Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine is now on newsstands. Recapping this year’s forecast, the writer’s predict the Liberty Panthers, Barbers Hill Eagles and East Chambers Buccaneers will all reach the state playoffs this season. If the periodical’s prognosticators are correct, the Dayton Broncos, Hardin Hornets, Anahuac Panthers, Hull-Daisetta Bobcats, Cleveland Indians and Tarkington Longhorns will all miss out on post-season action this year. KSHN will have more details from the magazine’s roundup of local teams in coming newscasts.
