It's tough to be Hallettsville.
For the last two years, the Brahmas lost to Hempstead in the regional playoffs in 2011 and Cameron Yoe in the quarterfinals last season. Both Hempstead and Cameron Yoe went on to the state title game, with Cameron Yoe winning it all.
The Brahmas did accomplish a lot going 10-0 last season - a first since 1979. Expectations are high for the Brahmas, as they are looking to repeat their season and go deep into the playoffs.
"The level of expectation has gone up," Psenick said. "We have to see steady improve, especially on the defensive line. We're going to have to see improvement from week to work to accomplish our goals."
Other teams in District 14-2A , Division I may say otherwise. Both Hempstead and Edna finished right behind the Brahmas last season
The Cowboys hope to improve from a 7-3 record last season.
Edna coach Mike Pierce will rely on senior linebacker David John Kallus and returning senior quarterback Austin Kelley to help lead the Cowboys, who lost 24 seniors last season.
"That's why you have offseason to develop a program," Pierce said. "You take each week one a time."
The Bobcats, who lost twice on the season to Hallettsville last season including the playoffs, bring back quarterback Will Smith. The Bobcats hope to avenge their four losses, including two losses to the Brahmas.
Rice Consolidated will have a new coach in Gary Zeinert, who hopes to bring the Raiders back to the playoffs after a two-year drought.
After dropping from Class 3A to 2A, Palacios hopes to eliminate last season's 0-5 district record. The Sharks have not made the playoffs since 2007.
Industrial brings back returning starters on defense in Evan Gregg and Mason Davis.
