In 2010 and 2011, the script flipped, with Allen losing three of its final four games, finishing 6-4 and narrowly missing out on a playoff berth both seasons.

For the Mustangs, a realistic 2012 goal would be returning to the playoffs, but coach Kenny Deaton is thinking past that.

“Obviously your main focus is to get into the playoffs; that's what you work for all season,” Deaton said. “But we would also like to do more than that. Get in and see what happens.”

Fox reigns supreme

Class B runner-up Davenport rolled through District 2 last season, winning all nine league games by at least 22 points.

But realignment has given the battered foes a reprieve, sending traditionally dominant Davenport to District B-4 and replacing them with teams that have a far lighter track record.

The biggest beneficiary of Davenport's new home will be Fox.

In the past two seasons, Fox ended league play 8-1, good enough for second place. And both seasons, an undefeated Davenport was the only team ahead of them, handing Fox its only loss both times.

“Fox has been really good the last couple years,” OCA coach Trey Sanchez said. “Now with Davenport gone, Fox will be the team to beat.”
