8/26 @ Jasper (7:30p)
9/2 WO-S (7p)
COACH SAYS... 9/9 Hardin-Jefferson (7p)
This team is a lot further along just for the simple 9/16 Orangefield (7p)
fact this is our second year in the offense, which
we installed last spring. There is a good nucleus Bickham SR 9/23 OPEN
because some of these guys have played on varsity 9/30 @ St. Pius (7p)
for the last three seasons, and that makes this
group of seniors very special to me. There are 21 of 10/7 @ Silsbee (7p)*
them, and its exciting to me to see how far along
Crouch 10/14 Bridge City (7p)*
they have come. No doubt this is a tough district,
31-40, 8th year
but I think we have some good scrimmages and a 10/21 @ Huffman (7p)*
31-40, overall
non-district schedule that has four playoff teams
from last year that will help us prepare. If we can keep the skill players 10/28 Cleveland (7p)*
healthy, this team can be pretty good. 11/4 @ Navasota (7p)*
Fontenot SR
The Bears have awoken from hibernation and are ready to contend for a
playoff spot in the tough 10-4A Division I, which includes powerhouse
Navasota, Silsbee, Cleveland, Huffman and Bridge City. The Bears will HISTORY
be vastly improved and have two of the most talented running backs in
2015: 2-8
the area in juniors JLon Douglas and Chris Winters, who combined to
run for 1,600 yards and 16 touchdowns. Senior Beau Bickham returns Last playoff: 2014
to quarterback after 600 yards and 4 touchdowns in just five games. CB
All-time record: 203-254-5 (.444)
Senior Kayne Williams will also get his chance to tote the ball. Blocking Guillory SR
for these skill players is senior all-district lineman Jim Jones, who is Ten win seasons: 2
one of the best guards in the area. The defense will be better thanks Undefeated regular seasons: 1
to several all-district returners, guys who have a nose for the football.
District titles: 1
Senior Hunter Fontenot had 100 tackles last year at linebacker and will
be joined again by fellow classmate Alex Reed. The secondary is full Winless seasons: 1
of playmakers including senior Trey Guillory, who is a top cover man Playoff appearances: 6
along with Winters, both of which were all-district on defense.

8/26 @ Hamshire-Fannett (7:30p)
9/2 North Forest (7p)
COACH SAYS... 9/9 WO-S (7:30p)
The difference between this years group and RB 9/16 @ Newton (7:30p)
last years is the overall experience factor. These Draper SR
guys have been in the system now for an entire 9/23 OPEN
year, so everything has gone faster and smoother.
It also helps with the confidence factor as we 9/30 OPEN
had success last season, including making the 10/7 Cleveland (7p)*
playoffs. Now we just need to build off that
success and carry it over each week. Our district 10/14 @ LC-M (7p)*
is highly competitive, and new this year will be
DuBois Navasota. Huffman returns a lot of players, as 10/21 Silsbee (7p)*
7-4, 2nd year QB
26-11, overall do Silsbee and LC-M. It will be a challenge each

mix of things. 11/4 @ Huffman (7p)*
2016 OUTLOOK *district game
Coach DuBois returned to his alma mater last season and quickly
installed the motto, If you dont believe, you dont belong. The Cards
believed and finished with a 7-4 record and a trip to the playoffs 2015: 7-4

quarterback, replacing a three-year starter in Camden DuBois. Trahan OL All-time record: 301-306-11 (.495)
is a great athlete who started at linebacker last year. He will get plenty Adams SR
of help with senior Cayce Draper behind him, who ran for 1,282 yards Ten win seasons: 4

9/2 @ Buna (7:30p)
COACH SAYS... 9/9 @ LC-M (7:30p)
I am really excited about this group for several
OL 9/16 Kelly (7:30p)
reasons. One, the players are in the second
year of the system, so now they know what we
Meade SR 9/23 Hardin (7:30p)
expect from them and expect from us. We have 9/30 @ Jasper (7:30p)
a lot of experience back on both sides of the ball.
There are a lot of skill players who can be very 10/7 OPEN
good playmakers when they get the ball, so if 10/14 WO-S (7:30p)*
Sloan we execute correctly, we have a chance to really
2-8, 2nd year score some points. I also like our overall team 10/21 @ Liberty (7:30p)*
2-8, overall
speed on defense. They are pursuing the ball,
10/28 Orangefield (7:30p)*
flying around, and the secondary can really cover some ground. So far, RB
so good. Working hard and prepping for a big season. Nwachuku JR 11/4 @ Hamshire-Fannett (7:30p)*
The Hawks got off to a slow start, then battled injuries in coach Jared *district game
Sloans first year in the nest as the team finished 2-8 and missed out
on the playoffs. Despite the struggle, year two of Sloans guidance will
be much improved as all-district running back Talon Tilley will be the

one of the districts best linebacker, ran for 1,279 yards and 12 scores
All-time record: 285-272-6 (.511)
and could also play some quarterback. Getting plenty of the carries in Priddy SR
Ten win seasons: 2
the run-heavy attack will be senior Cole Priddy and juniors Brayden
Pomirko and Kelechi Nwachuku. Senior Ryan Mead was all-district Undefeated regular seasons: 0

LUs Treadway,
Harrington receive
preseason buzz
Just days after being named to their first preseason All-America
squad, the duo of seniors Kade Harrington and Bret Treadway
received another preseason honor. Both Harrington and
Treadway earned College Sports Madness Preseason All-America
honors Aug. 8. Harrington received first-team recognition, while
Treadway was a third-team selection.
Harringtons preseason honors are due in large part to his record-
setting season in 2015. The Kingwood native led the nation in
rushing, all-purpose yards and rushing touchdowns. He closed
out the season by becoming the first player in program history Xavier
to be named Southland Player of the Year and was the runner-up Bethany
for the STATS FCS National Offensive Player of the Year Award
FCS Footballs version of the Heisman Trophy.
A huge reason for Harringtons success last season was the
dominance of the LU offensive line, which was anchored by
Treadway. A three-year starter, Treadway garnered first-team
All-Southland honors a year ago to lead one of the nations top
offensive lines. Treadway was an integral part of the Cardinals
offense which finished the season ranked among the nations top
10 in rushing averaging nearly 270 yards per game. In addition
to helping produce one of the nations strongest ground games,
the LU offensive front also led the nation in pass protection. Big
Red surrendered fewer than 0.5 sacks per game in 2015.
The Cardinals also received some respect from the national
pollsters. LU received 28 points in the STATS FCS Preseason top
25 poll, which has it listed under the others receiving votes
category. LU is currently the 18th team listed in the category.
Three of LUs 2016 opponents appear in the preseason poll,
including Sam Houston State at No. 2. The other two opponents
are McNeese (11th) and Coastal Carolina (16th).

Daisetta and Colmesneil. Several of those games were very competitive
10/28 Colmesneil (7p)*

attending Legacy. Reese JR 11/4............The Woodlands Christian (7p)*
In just his second season as the head coach, Troy Esprit helped guide *district game
the Legacy football team to the TAPPS Division III state semifinals, the
Warriors best season in program history. The offense returns just three HISTORY
starters and replaces an all-state quarterback with junior Holden Reese, 2015: 10-3
who Coach Esprit says is very smart and a hard worker. Four players

9/2 Kountze (7p)

COACH SAYS... 9/9 Legacy Christian (7p)

These young men showed a lot of character DB 9/16 @ Hardin-Jefferson (7:30p)

and learned how to win, then took it to the Brown SR 9/23 @ Orangefield (7p)
next step last season when we made the
playoffs. Its a great group of kids that have 9/30 Hamshire-Fannett (7p)
been out here practicing and working hard,

as are the coaches, to make sure this football
team can be the best Kelly football team 10/14 OPEN
Rabb Monday through Friday. The district is tough,
8-13, 3rd year
but we cant worry about what the other
10/21 St. Thomas (7p)*
33-71, overall
teams are doing. We can only control what 10/28 St. Pius (7p)*
we are doing and continue to work in the right direction. We have to LB
replace a few players in some skill spots, but Ive appreciated the effort Clay JR 11/4 @ Tomball Concordia (7p)*
these guys have put forth.

2016 OUTLOOK *district game

The Al Rabb era brought excitement to the Kelly football program. HISTORY
In just his second season, the Bulldogs snapped a four-year playoff
drought. They will again compete in the four-team TAPPS Division
2015: 4-7
I-3 district along with St. Thomas, who lost in the state semifinals Last playoff: 2015
last season, as well as St. Pius and Tomball Concordia Lutheran. The LB
quarterback battle has been hotly contested with seniors Logan Guillory SR Homecoming: Sept. 30 vs. Hamshire-Fannett
Henke and Connor Henry taking snaps. Juniors Jomard Valsin and
Earl Robertson could get plenty of carries in the backfield, and keep
an eye on senior Parker Meighen, who can be used in multiple roles.
The Bulldog defense could set the tone, especially early in the season.
Four-year letterman Simon Guillory is one of the top linebackers in the
district and will be joined by junior Patrick Clay. Senior Patrick Brown
will lead the secondary at safety.
Projected finish: 5-5 Meighen SR
