CORPUS CHRISTI - The Moody Trojans are excited about their chances of getting back to the playoffs for the first time since 2004. Mike Cantu begins his second year as head coach and has had a full year to implement his pass happy offense. His son, Michael will again play quarterback,
"I think the guys came back in really good shape," said Cantu. "We had a great off season conditioning program and the boys have a great attitude. We also have great numbers and I'm really happy about that."
The Trojans return six starters on offense and eight on defense. If the Trojans want to win they will have to improve their defense. They gave up 59 or more points in three straight district games last season.
"I'm really excited about it," said linebacker Elizar Dana. "Last season for me because I am a senior and we had a lot of people show up for summer workouts so hopefully we will be able to do good with that since everybody was working out and everybody was in shape so everyone will be good to go."
