Last year: 2-8 (2-5 Region 4-A)
Key returners: QB Quentin Best (Sr.), TB Michael Dukes (Sr.), TB Sheldon Wiggins (Sr.), FB Malcolm Harris (Sr.), TE Mark Cook (Sr.), OL Nick Barnhill, (Sr.), OL Drew Whitaker (Sr.), OL Raheem Farley (Sr.), TE Montel Jones (Sr.), TE Antuan Cummings (Sr.)
Key games: Sept. 3 vs. Williston-Elko, Sept. 24 at Wagener-Salley, Oct. 29 vs. Fox Creek
Glass half full: Trojans are looking to capture the form that made them a state title contender in 2006. A strong group of seniors returns and should be able to improve on last year's win total.
Glass half empty: Ridge Spring-Monetta plays in one of the toughest regions in the state with defending champion Williston-Elko and perennial power Blackville-Hilda. Winning a region title this year is probably out of the question.
