The 2019 Terrell High School varsity football team will play the same schedule as last season.
Terrell went 1-8 overall and 1-7 in district.
When Terrell High School varsity football coach, Marvin Sedberry Jr., first looked at the schedule he said all the teams Terrell face this year are really good teams.
“That was the first thing I thought about,” Sedberry said. “I don't know much about Hallsville but I heard they got a new coach two years ago and I know they’ve been getting better. I know Paris has speed. I played against Sulphur Springs in high school and those guys are monsters. Forney and North Forney has good skills athletes. I think everyone in our district is well coached so I don’t feel like there is going to be a week off. We have to bring it every week.”
