On defense, Ira Lewis and John Bonnie command one of the state’s most athletic groups. There are some questions on that side of the ball, however.

Defensive end Zelt Minor and Defensive Cedric Lancaster were two of the state’s best play makers and parlayed that success into scholarships with SMU. The Washington Football Team must get solid play from their replacements if they want to get over the hump.

Tom Nolen is the Washington Football Team coach and the reigning coach of the year. He was nothing short of masterful during last year’s run to Arlington. His players are united in their quest to get him the ring they feel he deserves.

Lamar is for real. They are back on the Road to State!
