District 2A-3 football preview: Washington looking to contend

After going 5-6 last season, Washington returns 11 starters in hopes of competing in the district for a playoff spot.

Sixteen total starters return, including nine on offense. Particularly, the offensive line has some good experience to fall back on, with Jake Walton, Aaron Smith and Dalton Goucher. All three are multiple-year starters and seniors.

Sophomore Jake Standridge is the prime candidate to take the quarterback job, and he'll be relying a lot on receiver Aaron Smith, who has been starting since his freshman year. Hayden Eubank, now a junior, will be the top option in the ground game as a returning starter at running back.


Comanche comes into the season with several spots to fill from last year, but opposing coaches still view the Indians as playoff contenders.

Kale Reed is a big reason why. Reed quarterbacked Comanche to a 9-3 season a year ago, and he has some experienced receivers in the mix, with Zach Young and David Alvarez. In addition, Clayton Fennell leads a backfield that has multiple runners with experience.
