Baldwyn's football team did not win its division last season.
The bearcats also struggled to a three-and-eight finish.
Head coach michael gray is optimistic that theyll turn it around in 2019.
38 players are on the roster, including eleven seniors.
Maddux richey returns at quarterback.
Baldwyn is dropping from class 2a to 1a, but gray says the road will still be tough.
Michael gray: "the biggest thing about 1a is you play more division games, so therefore you play less non-division games, so our schedule is not as loaded on the top end as it usually is, and i think that's going to be an advantage for us."
Jacolby williams: "1a is still going to be the same, we try to look at everybody like they're equal, we don't look down on anybody, but at the same time, we're supposed to be a big name, since we're coming down."
