The Marshall Buffs will stampede through District 11-5A-DII

VYPE

Originally Appeared on VYPE

The FB Marshall Buffs stole the headlines last season reaching the Class 5A DII state title game. While they fell to Aledo, the experience was a tremendous learning experience. The year prior, Manvel reached the state finals from this district. That just shows how good this district is. While the power is up top; the next two playoff spots are up for grabs.

What a season for FB Marshall. They ran the table all the way to state, but also had a tragedy along the way with the death of a teammate. It was a tremendous learning experience that could propel the Buffs to another state run. Quarterback Malik Hornsby, who played only half the regular season before being cleared to join the team, returns to run a fast-break offense after a first-team selection a year ago. Hornsby passed for nearly 2,000 yards and rushed for another 700 last year. A full offseason and fall in the system should help tremendously. Devon Achane is a blur. He was the District MVP and can score whenever he gets the ball in his hands. Achane had 42 touchdowns and rushed for more than 1,300 yards on the year and is a major DI prospect. The OL is pretty solid with Daylan Malveaux and Larry Moore (Texas Tech-commit) in the trenches. The defense is fast and furious led by all-stater Warren Robinson (77 tackles, 12 sacks), who comes from the edge. Frank Miller and Sylvester Labome, Jr. are also notable defenders. Opposing offenses can't forget about Norman Baker (141 tackles) either. Avery Helm (Florida-commit) hopes to make a big return at DB after an ACL injury kept him out much of last season.
