In A Stormy Season, Several Falcons Shine District 8-5A, D2 All-District Awards Handed Out
Coming off their historic 2017 football season, one which saw them finish 10-3 and play into the third round of the UIL Playoffs, the North Forney Falcons knew they would be tested in 2018. They had lost 31 seniors to graduation, including all offensive skill positions from a team that scored well over 50 points a game. They also lost many of their defensive leaders and would be playing in a new nine-team district, with many new foes. And while 2018 didn’t go as hoped, the character of the team was never lost as they battled their way to a 4-6 record (3-5 in district).
In contrast to 2017, the 2018 Falcons were led by a defense that, although undersized in many positions, finished with three players receiving first team All-District honors, three on the second team and three honorable mention recipients.
