WEST, Texas — Last season, the West Trojans pulled off a shocking run through the Conference 3A-I playoffs, fighting all the way to the regional finals and setting a school record for wins in a season.

"Expectations are there, and last year showed us how close we are to be able to get to that point," Head Coach David Woodard said.

The Trojans lose 13 starters from that experienced group, but expectations are still high entering the 2022 season. They are ranked No. 10 in 3A-I to start the year.

"The seniors last year set a goal for us and we still got to carry on that legacy and that goal and that's what we're trying to do here," senior Jacob Boggs said

The Trojan offense will be led once again by running back Terry McCutcheon who ran for more than 1,300 yards and 22 touchdowns last year. He will once again run behind a young but strong offensive line.

Zane Meinen returns as West's quarterback this season.

"I feel like we have a little chip on our shoulder," Meinen said. "Like, not many people believe we were as good as we were last year. So, I think we're still the hunters."

The Trojans are picked to finish second in District 7-3A I behind Grandview. West upset the Zebras in 2021 to take home a district crown.

"It's about preparing every day and about getting out on Friday nights and performing," Woodard said. "And if we do those things, everything will take care of itself."
