The Goldthwaite Eagles should be an improved football team over last year’s 2-8 finish. But turning that improvement into more wins will be tough in District 4-2A Division I, which includes No. 4-ranked Cisco and No.10 San Saba, according to the texasfootball.com preseason rankings.
Cisco appeared in five state championship games from 2002-2013 while in Class 3A, and San Saba is 27-2 over the last two seasons. Goldthwaite’s three other District 4-2A DI opponents — Coleman, De Leon and Winters — beat the Eagles by a combined 89-13 last year.
The Eagles still have a big gap to close on the district leaders.
