Lions snubbed in All-District picks

  Mark Warde [email protected] After winning the 2014 district championship with a 7-0 league record, Ennis football was rewarded with the most players chosen All-District first or second team or listed for honorable mention.

Q1) What was your impression of Thursday’s blue-collar victory over Lindale? Hugh: I think it was a lot tougher than most folks expected. Lindale is a scrappy, well coached team.
