The Hermleigh Cardinals are coming off a tremendous 10-2 season. Derek Ahearn is the new coach coming in from Kopperl.
"I'm excited. We lost 12 from last year. We have kids back who were sitting in the background. Everyone in Hermleigh is excited."
Non-district is tough with Sterling City, Motley County and Borden County but that should prepare them for district.
"It's pretty tough with Borden County and Ira but I didn't come from an easy district. We'll see."
