This will be the first season for new head coach Marvin Sedberry Jr at Terrell after the Tigers went 1-8 overall and 1-7 in district last season.
According to DCTF, the Terrell football players to watch are offensive tackle Malik Griffin, tight end/linebacker Stephen Idemudia, running back/linebacker Jaquavious Morris, linebacker Khalid Johnson,
According to DCTF, the top Terrell juniors on the team are cornerback/wide receiver Chris Davis and linebacker Cameron Anthony.

DCTF says about Terrell in its 2019 notes “New coach Sedberry takes over after a successful stint at Garland Naaman Forest. The key for Terrell to get back into the playoff contention in 2019 will be how the offense matures. Morris (254 yards rushing) is the most experienced skill player returning. He’s tough runner who has breakaway speed in the open field. He’ll run behind offensive lineman Griffin, who is a FBS level recruit.”
