For the last two years, Ganado and Shiner have battled for the District 15-1A title.

In 2011, Ganado claimed that title and last season, the title went to Shiner.

This season, the Indians and the Comanches will likely battle again for the title.

For the Indians, coach Jimmy Thompson believes the team can improve on their 8-4 record. Thompson said every team in the district will be a fight.

"If you want to be champions, you have to play good teams," Thompson said. "Whether you beat them or not, you have to learn to play at their level."

The Indians' schedule doesn't get easy as they will play Hallettsville, the reigning District 14-2A champion.

The Comanches could experience a few changes. Linebacker Jacob Stafford will play either the running back or quarterback position.

New Yorktown coach Ty Robinson arrived to the Wildcats in June. Taking over a team that finished 6-4 on the season, Robinson believes the team will play better this year.

"We're going to take advantage of our skills," Robinson said, who has 10 seniors on the team. "We want to get better ... one day at a time."
