Winnsboro Ready To Defend District Title

Like district rival Alba-Golden, the Winnsboro Red Radiers kicked off their first practice of the season under the light of the moon for the sixth straight season.  They are wasting little time in starting the defense of their district title.

"It's a cool evening to come out there," said Winnsboro head coach Steve Pinnell, "so the kids like it and we're going to continue doing it."

With their entire defense, and most of the offense returning from a team that lost just one regular season game last year, but went just one round deep in the playoffs, there's a lot of urgency to get back in the saddle.

"Last year just wasn't good enough, one round, we just need to go further," said senior running back Tommy Evans.  "Everybody is ready to hit, everything. I'm ready, all the team is ready."

"It's a new season," Pinnell said.  "We feel like we've got a good football team, and hopefully we'll get better every day and come out and show that we're a good team."

    One search on twitter of the hashtag "bEASTtexas", and you will be scrolling for days. The amount of talent that comes from this region is mind blowing. It is even crazier to see around 10 Major League and minor league baseball guys working out together in one room.
