BURTON, Texas — A good small football program in the state of Texas to look up to is Burton. The Class 2A Division II powerhouse comes in at number eight in Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine preseason poll.

The Panthers have won over 35 games the past three years and advanced to at least the fourth round of the playoffs during that span.

Head coach Jason Hodde and company though have some big pieces to replace in 2019 including TCU signee Dee Winters and quarterback Caleb Harmel.
