BEEVILLE - The Trojans are under new leadership this season in Head Coach Jimmy Mitchell, who makes the move from Sealy. Mitchell has also coached football at Sinton. Trojan fans will see a totally different brand of football this year - no more option attack - Mitchell is spreading out the offense.
"The offense is better for us because we need to spread it out more, change something up, running back Tristan Pelitire said. "Coach is doing everything right for us. I'm very looking forward to it."
"New head coach, new style," linebacker Dylan Knapp said. "Everybody is really working hard, picking it up, we're expecting a good season this year."
It is a young squad filled with freshman and sophomores; only five starters return on offense and just three on the defensive side of the ball.
The Trojans are in one of the toughest districts in South Texas - with the likes of Calallen, G-P and Port Lavaca - and Coach Mitchell says defense is going to be the key.
"We always emphasize defense, so they'll be an emphasis on defense here," he said. "Our offense is going to be a lot different than what they've been used to and both of those things are going to take some time."
