Head Coach: Paul Essary

School Colors: Maroon, White
Stadium Address: 708 E College St, Athens, TX 75751
2016 record: 2-8/2-4 district

Players to watch:
- QB Xavius Fulton (414 passing yards, 12 touchdowns)
- LB Andrew McBride

Notes: After making four straight playoff trips, the Hornets are coming off a disappointing 2016 campaign. The good news is that quarterback Fulton is back to command the offense. Returning the majority of their roster, hopefully the Hornets can build off last season and gel together for a successful "round two".
