Yoakum, Texas -
Yoakum football is ranked fifth in the Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine state 3A Division I pre-season poll.
That's understandable since the Bulldogs have made the state semifinals the past two seasons. There are very few of the Bulldogs from those teams back this year, though. Only three offensive and two defensive starters return from last year's team, with 17 lettermen back. I talked about that with Yoakum receiver and safety Ty Love.
"There's not really that much experience. But everybody can get together. Once we're comfortable with each other we can be able to work just like last year. The year before we lost a lot of people but we still did good. We can all play together because we all know each other."
Yoakum football's first scrimmage is a week from Friday at Giddings.
