Football is just around the corner, and we at BigCountryPreps.com are committed to bringing you the information you need to prepare for your favorite team’s season.
We’ll be releasing our Big Country Preps Preseason Football Preview, the most comprehensive look at the upcoming Big Country football season anywhere, on Wednesday, Aug. 16. But you won’t have to wait until then to sate your gridiron appetite.
Leading up to the first day of fall football practice on July 31, we’ll be spotlighting each 11-man team in the area and posing some of the key questions they’ll face in 2023 as part of our annual “Countdown to Two-a-Days” series.
We continue in Class 2A Division I with the De Leon Bearcats. On Saturday we will take a look at the Goldthwaite Eagles, followed by the San Saba Armadillos on Sunday.
DE LEON BEARCATS
LAST YEAR’S RECORD
- 4-6 overall, 1-5 District 5-2A Division I
ONE KEY STAT
- De Leon is in the midst of a three-year playoff drought after reaching the postseason every year from 2015 to 2019.
TWO NAMES TO KNOW
- Sophomore QB/DB Heston Jobe (Passed for 1,100 yard and 6 TDs and rushed for 1,200 yards and 15 TDs in 2022)
- Senior OL/DL Wyatt Rasberry (Had 85 tackles and 3 sacks in 2022)
THREE BURNING QUESTIONS
- Now in their third season under coach Jacob Marwitz, is this the year the Bearcats turn the corner and get back to the playoffs?
- What kind of support and production can De Leon get from the call-ups of a 7-3 junior varsity team?
- How much will quarterback Heston Jobe improve after a breakout freshman campaign last year?
