Vista Ridge reached the playoffs in 2012, but will have several holes to fill this season, including at the quarterback position.
The Rangers finished last season 8-4 under coach Rodney Vincent in District 25-4A. Eleven starters return from last year's team, including star running back Stedman Mayberry. Mayberry verbally committed to Texas State this summer.
"We had a couple of key players leave, but that happens in every team," Mayberry said. "We have some guys who are stepping up and going to fill in. We have a lot of good weapons coming back too, so I think we should be even stronger than before."
Vista Ridge kicks off the new season August 30th at Bastrop.
