Sherman and Denison snubbed by magazine

The Denison Yellow Jackets and Sherman Bearcats expect to be playoff contenders in 2014, but according to Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine, they will fall short.

According to Texas Football, Denison will finish 6th, and Sherman will finish 7th in the 8 team district.

The Wylie Pirates are predicted to win the district. McKinney North, Lovejoy, and Wylie East are the other playoffs teams. McKinney is picked 6th, followed by Denison, Sherman and Prosper.

The magazine has become the standard for high school football previews in Texas. Coaches often use the predictions as a motivational tool. This year's list should give the two local schools plenty of reasons to prove the writers wrong.
