DISTRICT OUTLOOK:

Laredo United has dominated the Laredo 6A district in recent years and 2015 gives us no reason to believe Coach Sanchez’s squad won’t do the same. As always United gets it done with a high powered offense and a scrappy unit on the defensive side of the ball, this year could see the Longhorns throw up record setting numbers with a 4200 yard passer and one of the top receivers in South Texas returning. Del Rio broke through to the area playoffs last year and the Rams are poised to be improved, if they remain healthy their physical style of play and speed can cause matchup issues. After making the playoffs for the first time in school history, LBJ as designs on bigger and better in 2015 as eight starters on both sides of the ball return. Once a doormat, LBJ has emerged as a strong contender in the 29-6A hunt. Alexander will have to rely on their defense to carry them back to the playoffs after the loss of most of their offensive firepower, the Bulldogs are a likely playoff team but they will have to fight off a tough challenge from an improving Eagle Pass squad.
