To begin 2A DII region III, we take a look at 9-2A.  This district had a few teams advance out of the first round of the playoffs, with district champion Maud falling to eventual state champion Bremond in the regional semifinal round, 48-20.  Though Maud was perfect in district, there were challenged along the way as a few games were decided by a touchdown or less.  If there is one team that should definitely be improved, it would be Dallas Gateway, who will have QB Domanek Wilkerson, the districts offensive MVP, returning.  Detroit is also bringing back more than they are losing.
