Aug 27 ND schedule preview (Gary Smith coach)
North DeSoto Griffins Sept. 3 Sept. 10 Sept. 17 Sept. 24 Oct. 1 Oct. 8 Oct. 15 Oct. 22 Oct. 29 Nov. 5 at P. Dealing St. Mary Logansport at Benton at Mansfield at North Caddo Lakeside Springhill at Homer Loyola Coach: Gary Smith 2003 report: 1-9 1-9 1-9 overall, 0-5 0-5 0-5 district Investment strategy: Though actually not that many years removed from the playoffs, North DeSoto has been in a rather deep slump. Market forecast: Things should improve under a new coach with plenty of experience, combined with an otherwise stable staff. But The biggest challenge is likely one of attitude. Key indicators: There are expectations for backs Jeremy Thomas and Joe Carroll. Some defensive leaders are FS Ryan Burford and LB Brad Brossette. Inside tip: Smith says there is potential on offense, but he has been a defensive coach at Airline, a school known for tough defense in recent years. Look for the Griffins to get better there.
