Coming off a 6-6 season, there's plenty of excitement as Daniel Fontenot moves up to become the head coach and lead the pigskin program.
"It's always difficult taking over. I should say tough. Coach Steve Taylor is a tremendous man. He's a great coach, great person. Big shoes to fill. Being with Coach Taylor the last 4 years, probably the main thing people are concerned about, are we going to keep the consistency the same and we are."
The Mustangs also move into a new classification as they now reside in Class 4A Division 2.
"I think there's a little bit of excitement and apprehension. The town is kinda worried about us moving up to 4A. We just tell the kids it's just another group of football teams. Apparently we are the same size they are or we wouldn't be in there. We are gonna strap it on and play."
Denver City is in District 1 of 4A Division 2 with Brownfield, Perryton, Bushland and Dalhart.
