Woodville Eagles

Last season the Woodville Eagles finished 6-4 but 2-3 in district play and missed out on the playoffs. Corrigan-Camden left the district but was replaced by the equally tough Kirbyville Wildcats and many feel that Woodville will be battling for the 3rd spot behind Newton and Kirbyville. The Eagles return a total of 9 starters that will lead them into battle in a very tough 22-2A.

Woodville returns 4 offensive starters from last year's team that averaged 30 points per game. Leading the offense will be QB Calib Hadnot. RB Jarvis Barlow returns to lead the rushing attack for the Eagles in 2008. Woodville will need to be able to score some points once again this year to be able to keep up with the other high powered offenses in the district like Newton and Kirbyville.
