2013 PRESEASON CLASS 2A TOP TEN


The Old Coach Team Rankings
2013 Class 2A: Top 10


Below is The Old Coach Class 2A DI Top 10 teams.

1. NEWTON Head Coach: W.T. Johnson, 2012 Record: 13-1

Newton has one of the most talented and experienced teams returning in Class 2A. They will be out to avenge a loss to Cameron Yoe in last year's state semi-finals. RB Kevin Shorter is the most sought after recruit in all of Class 2A.

2. CAMERON YOE Head Coach: Rick Rhoades, 2012 Record: 15-0

The Yoemen avenged a loss to Daingerfield in the 2010 championship game with a dominating win in 2012. Although graduation has cut into Yoe's depth, there's still plenty of talent and experience for a repeat run to Cowboys Stadium.

3. DAINGERFIELD Head Coach: Aric Sardinea, 2012 Record: 11-4

The Tigers got all the way to the title game under second year head coach Aric Sardinea a year ago. Daingerfield brings back another strong team that will be highlighted by tremendous speed at the skill spots. If the Tigers can maintain consistency, their talent is enough to take them back to the title game once again.

4. WALL Head Coach: Houston Guy, 2012 Record: 12-2

The Hawks advanced all the way to the state semi-finals before falling to Daingerfield in a hard fought contest. The Hawks lose their top rusher, but they've got plenty of other guys with experience as Wall prefers to grind out wins and rely on a tough defense.

5. TATUM Head Coach: Andy Evans, 2012 Record: 9-3

The Eagles 2012 season ended in a disappointing regional semi-final loss to Franklin. Although just two offensive and three defensive starters return, the talent is in place for a deep run for the next two seasons.

6. HALLETSVILLE Head Coach: Tommy Psencik, 2012 Record: 12-1

HHS had a remarkable run in 2012, beating Hempstead twice and advancing all the way to the quarter-finals before falling to eventual champion Cameron Yoe. Halletsville has the skill talent to matchup with anyone in Region IV, the key will be how they replace some losses up front on both sides of the ball.

7. MCGREGOR Head Coach: Tim Seward, 2012 Record: 9-2

McGregor is poised for a big season with a great blend of talent and experience back in the fold. The talent at the skill spots is as good as anyone, the key will be up front especially on the offensive line.

8. WHITE OAK Head Coach: Gerry Stanford, 2012 Record: 9-3

White Oak brings back one of their most talented teams in school history. The Roughnecks play in one of the toughest districts in the state so they'll be tried and tested come playoff time.

9. HEMPSTEAD Head Coach: Ricky Sargent, 2012 Record: 9-4

Hempstead played for the state title in 2011 and followed that up with a strong three round run in 2012. The Bobcats bring back the district MVP and a solid group of skill kids with speed to burn, the key for HHS will be consistency, especially in the trenches.

10. LULING Head Coach: Colby Hensley, 2012 Record: 7-5

Luling brings back a tremendous offense, paced by an offensive line that's among the best in all of 2A. Throw in experience at the skill spots and the Eagles have the makings of a contender in Region IV.

Below is The Old Coach Class 2A DII Top 10 teams.

1. CANADIAN Head Coach: Chris Koetting, 2012 Record: 10-3

With the top QB in all of Class 2A returning in Ben Arbuckle, the Wildcats are poised to be back in the title discussion in 2013. The offensive line and receivers are all returning as well for CHS, keys for a title run will be Canadian's defense emerging and developing consistency in the running attack.

2. EAST BERNARD Head Coach: Jerry Long, 2012 Record: 15-0

The Brahamas blew through the 2A Division II playoffs in impressive fashion en route to the state championship. EBHS has to replace TCU bound Ty Slanina but the cupboard is hardly bare as a strong group of running backs and a solid defense is in place. Expect East Bernard to be a bit more wide open this year on offense.

3. SONORA Head Coach: Craten Phillips, 2012 Record:11-4

The Broncos marched all the way to the semi-finals a year ago before falling to Mildred in a hard fought contest. The Broncos bring back a stout ground attack and one of the top secondary units in all of West Texas. Traditionally the Broncos have been good up front and they'll need that tradition to continue as they will be young in the trenches.

4. REFUGIO Head Coach: Jason Herring, 2012 Record: 12-1

The Bobcats rolled up big point totals once again in 2012, but fell short of a second straight title losing in the quarter-finals to eventual champion East Bernard. Refugio has a three year starter back at QB and a good group of receivers, but there are questions with the running game. The defense has struggled in the past two years against physical ground oriented attacks and they'll need to improve on the defensive line if they want to get out of Region IV.

5. HUGHES SPRINGS Head Coach: Chris Edwards, 2012 Record: 12-1

The Mustangs Slot-T attack rolled all the way to the Quarter-Finals a year ago, but a stunning loss to district rival Elysian Fields ended HSHS' season. The loss was especially tough to take considering the Mustangs dominated EFHS in their regular season meeting. Hughes Springs brings back the bulk of their running backs, but several all-state lineman have graduated.

6. ARP Head Coach: Dale Irwin, 2012 Record: 9-3

Coach Irwin brings back an experienced squad that should contend with Hughes Springs for top honors in East Texas in 2A Div. II. Depth at the skill spots is a concern, but those fears are alleviated some as AHS brings back plenty of experience on both the offensive and defensive lines.

7. CORSICANA MILDRED Head Coach: Billy Dan Cambiless, 2012 Record:

Mildred rolled all the way to the state title game before being blown away by a great East Bernard squad. Gone is a Division I QB, the top WR and the majority of the offensive line. Mildred is also under new leadership as former assistant Chambiless is now the head Eagle. Seven starters are back on defense so that group will have to carry MHS while they break in some new faces on offense.

8. ELYSIAN FIELDS Head Coach: Scott Ford, 2012 Record: 11-4

After a stunning run to the semi-finals, EFHS is under new leadership as Scott Ford returns to East Texas after a year in the RGV at Hidalgo. The 'Jackets will have to adjust to a new system but the skill pieces are in place for another big run if they can knock off district rival Hughes Springs.

9. COOPER Head Coach: Ronnie Green, 2012 Record: 6-6

Cooper appears to be a team poised for a breakout season under Coach Green. Nine starters are back on the defensive side of the ball and six on defense return for what should be a big playoff push in 2013.

10. POST Head Coach: Steve Smith, 2012 Record: 9-2

Post could be primed for a big year out West with one of the top backs in all the state in D.J. Brown and a three year starter at QB. This is a class folks in Post have been waiting on a long time, it'll be interesting to see if they can live up to the expectations.
