Say what you want about the season. Very few teams have a better record than the 10-2 Broncos. Lots of work to do next season, but we had a lot of young talent do some great things this season. We have a lot to look forward to in the coming years.
Let’s check in on the soon-to-be Broncos!

TD Lancaster. Quick response ends with 36-yard pass from Trevor Hatton to Cartrell Thomas. Wylie East 13, Lancaster 13, :38, 2nd. #txhsfb— Matt Wixon (@mattwixon) November 26, 2016
Lancaster will play Poteet on 12/2 in the quarterfinals of the playoffs. Good luck to Cartrell and the Tigers!
It looks like we still have 2 players whose teams are still in their respective playoffs. Tyreque Jones’ Spartans play in the CIF Southern Section Championship on Friday and Cartrell Thomas’ Tigers move on to the quarterfinals. Isiah Moore’s Thunderbirds are going to a JC bowl and Michael Young’s Conquistadors are playing the waiting game. That will do it this week for the future Broncos.
Apologies for the continuity in some of the players info. Hoping stats start showing up for them. Tune in next week! GO BRONCOS!
