The Bangs Dragons and head coach Chuck Lipsey are making it a habit of going to playoffs, and they are picked to return in 2014.

The biggest question is Bangs is, 'Can Keegan Hall take over the offense and run it like 3-year starter J.T. Newton?'

 Chuck Lipsey said, "We were fortunate to have a quarterback that started his sophomore, junior, and senior year.  That is going to be a big part of getting him replaced. Right now we're looking at Keegan [Hall] being the quarterback, and Trett [Mitchell] probably backing him up. That's the plan right now. That could change as we go through, but I think the kids have a lot of confidence in Keegan."

Cameron Castillo said, "See the thing is, we have good chemistry. We've been playing together our whole lifes. He's going to be a little nervious, but coach Lipsey can work him. He'll be find I think after we start working together some more."

Keegan is a converted receiver, and he has a good duo at running back with Jake Revell and Seth Ross leading the charge.

The Dragons are picked to finish the season in 3rd place in District 3-3A Division I.

Bangs opens the 2014 season at Ballinger.
