DCTF picks Lions for play-offs
Wing named as player to watch
The 2019 edition of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine is now available and free commemorative Dublin editions can be picked up around town..
“Thank you to the Dublin Athletic Booster Club for making the magazines available,” said Dublin ISD athletic director Bob Cervetto.
The magazine picks the Lions as third place for District 6-3A Division II behind number 1 Jacksboro and Comanche in the second spot. Millsap, Tolar and Rio Vista were picked fourth, fifth and six respectively.
The predictions still highlight plenty of strengths for Dublin and expect the hometown team to be “right back in the playoff mix” thanks to the strengths of players like quarterback Cy Wing, LB Kevin Cervantes, RB Hagen Huffman, K/P Gabriel Renteria, DL Johnny Jurado, DB Colten Couch, OL Tyler Morrow and DL Trent Lopez.
Wing was picked as one of the top two players to watch for Class 3A with DCTF writing that he “has one of the best names in the state, and has the game to match it.” In 2018-2019, Wing threw for 2,330 yards and 23 touchdowns while rushing for 645 yards.
The special Dublin edition features the 2019-2020 Dublin Lions on the front cover and the season schedule on the back with a photo layout of the team and an interview with Cervetto inside.
The special Dublin edition can be picked up at Dublin Secondary School, Brookshire Brothers, Dairy Queen, First National Bank, Dublin Chamber of Commerce, Granny Clark’s, Dublin Cleaners, Best Value Pharmacy and Bradberry’s Best.
