District 7-6A Football Preview - Haltom

Sep 18, 2014 11:28AM ● Published by Mike

Haltom is looking to bounce back from a tough 3-7 season in 2013. But it’s hard to find reason for optimism. Haltom was gutted by the loss of 33 lettermen and returns just two starters on offense and four on defense. In fact, the Buffalos bring back a mere 13 lettermen. Simply put, head coach Jason Tucker has his work cut out for him in what should be a rebuilding year for the Buffalos. If Haltom is going to surprise, it will need to rely on its defense to make stops and force turnovers. That’s obviously easier said than done, but the Buffalos do have some potential on that side of the ball. Tucker has high expectations for defensive linemen Jaylan Cruz, a second team all-district pick, Joseph Banks and Tyree Smith, and underclassmen linebackers Deonta Cooksey and Gavin Ricks have upside for the future. As mentioned, the offense will be extremely inexperienced. Senior quarterback Joey Optiz must step up as a leader and do everything in his power to get the ball into the hands of playmaking do-it-all athlete Dandre Reed.
