2-A-DAYS: Teague a district title favorite

TEAGUE, Texas The Teague Lions were really good a season ago. Most think they can be even better in 2017. That expectation means a lot of excitement and a lot of pressure as the district title favorites.

Teague finished second in their district to Malakoff last year, then made it a few rounds into the playoffs. Their goal is to play into December this season and to do it as District champs.

The Lions return a lot of talent. They are experienced and good up front, and their skill players are some of the best and most explosive in the state. The Lions are blessed with a lot of speed and that should show up on both sides of the ball.

Donnie Osborn and his players know what the expectations are and they're embracing the role as favorites.
