ABILENE, Texas (BCH Sports) – District 4-2A Division I will be exciting to watch in the 2024 season. The Stamford Bulldogs are expected to end the Hawley Bearcats’ six-year stranglehold on the district title. Head coach Wayne Hutchinson returns for his second season in his second tenure as head coach, and the Bulldogs have 15 positions filled with returning starters. Four different Stamford backs have rushed for 500 yards or more in 2023, and three of them are back. Quarterback Christian Duran is one of them, and he added 1,600 yards passing and 14 touchdown passes.

According to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine, the Hawley Bearcats are next. Mitch Ables’ team just got through the fourth round of the playoffs. Keagan Ables is back and will lead the offense as quarterback. Last season he threw for nearly 3,500 yards and 44 touchdowns…

The other playoff teams from the district are expected to be Cisco and Anson, with Olney and Abilene TLCA in fifth and sixth place.

The Coleman Bluecats are tipped by the magazine as the top seed in District 5-2A Division I. The Bluecats will count on a strong defense to capture their second district title in four years. The big guys on offense and defense are expected to get Coleman back to the postseason.

DeLeon, Hamilton and Hico are the other playoff teams from this district. Ballinger and Bangs are looking to prove the doubters wrong.

The Colorado City Wolves are the only Big Country school in District 3-2A Division I. The Wolves are projected to finish sixth this season.

Can the Albany Lions win their third straight Class 2A Division II title? Texas Football projects them to win their fifth straight district title and 16th in the last 17 years. Denney Faith’s Lions have just five starters on offense and two on defense. Chip Chambers is back at quarterback for Albany. He threw 35 touchdown passes for Albany in 2023.

The Roscoe Plowboys are expected to challenge the defending champions in District 7-2A Division II play. The Plowboys have six starters on both sides of the ball, and it’s safe to assume Roscoe will still be playing this season come Thanksgiving.

Miles and Cross Plains are expected to finish third and fourth in the district. Hamlin and Winters are underdogs.

The Haskell Indians are in the playoffs, according to Dave Campbell. They are picked behind Windthorst, Seymour and Archer City in District 6-2A Division II. Munday is seventh.
