Head Coach: Kurt Traylor
School Colors: Red, Black, White
Stadium Address: 700 Fair Park Dr, Tyler, TX 75701
2016 Record: 2-8
Returning starters: 5 on offense, 8 on defense
Players to watch: QB Chance Amie (Houston commit; 1,556 passing, 1,260 yards rushing & 27 total TD's in 2016 ) DB/WR Rhett Parker (43 tackles, 5 tackles for loss in 2016) DL Nathan Niedrauer (52 tackles, 5 tackles for loss in 2016)
Notes: First year head coach and former Gilmer assistant Kurt Traylor is taking over the Tyler Lee program. The Red Raiders 2-8 record from 2016 could have been a lot better. Lee lost several games by one possession, so it must learn out to close out contests in the fourth quarter. Having a leader at quarterback in Chance Amie will be big for Traylor and company in 2017. The Red Raiders defense, which has been the teams weakness the last several years must continue to improve.
