Eagle Football Preview

by Jason Drake

The Woodville Eagles are hoping to return to the playoffs again in 2013. Last year, Woodville finished 4-6 on the season and 3-4 in district for fifth place. The 10-2ADI poll has the Eagles on the outside looking in. The Eagles are predicted to finish fifth this year. The UIL announced this season that four teams will make the playoffs this year. This means that the Eagles will have to pass one of the teams predicted ahead of them to get in. The poll indicates the Newton Eagles are favored to win the district championship with the Buccaneers of East Chambers as the runner-up. Newton is predicted as the number one team in the state this year. Kirbyville and Kountze are predicted to finish third and fourth for the final two playoff spots. The Anahuac Panthers were selected sixth behind Woodville, with Hardin and Warren picked seventh and eighth.

Head football coach, Jared Slaten will have to replace key skill players in 2013. The Eagles are returning five offensive and five defensive starters from 2012. Junior Marqui Jackson is predicted to take snaps from junior center Colin Pate. The Eagles will rely heavily on seniors this year, especially wingback Charles Fentress, tailback Phillip Noble, fullback Trent Daniels, and running back Reggie Williams. District 10-2AD1 is predicted to be one of the toughest in 2013 and very fun to watch.
