PREVIEW: Byron Nelson Bobcats prepare for domination
After a strong season last year, the Byron Nelson Bobcats are looking to get right back to where they left off. VYPE DFW takes a dive into the program and lays out exactly what fans can expect from the Bobcats as they enter their new schedule!
A Look Back
Last season, the Bobcats posted a 63% winning percentage as they plowed through their schedule with a 12-7-1 overall record. In preseason play, Byron Nelson posted great victories over the likes of Austin Westlake, Arlington Lamar, South Grand Pairie, and more before opening district play. In district, the team defeated Southlake Carroll, V.R. Eaton, Keller Fossil Ridge, and more to finish third in their district with a 7-4-1 district record. Entering playoffs with high hopes to continue forward, the Bobcats fell in a hard-fought 3-0 match against Euless Trinity.
What's to Come
The team opened their season with a 2-1 victory over the Frisco Raccoons earlier this week. Led by Brenden Ferguson, Jorge Morales, Logan Jones, Jackson Tibbitts, Pierce Dahlin, and more, the Bobcats are ready to get the ball rolling through the rest of their schedule. Through non-district play, the team is set to face off against Sachse, Red Oak, Little Elm and more before opening district play in Keller against Keller Fossil Ridge on January 27th.
The Bobcats can be expected to play hard this season. With speed on their side and a dedication to the game, Byron Nelson should have no problem working through their district schedule and making another playoff appearance- this time going further than last year. Show up to games and get loud because this is a squad you aren't going to want to miss on the field this season!
The team's next game is January 5th at 4 p.m. in a tournament where they open against Sachse.
