Last year, Texas Football magazine picked the Hornets to finish sixth out of the eight-team 5-4A.
AHS proved it wrong, reaching the postseason, tying for third.
This year, Azle is slotted fifth by the publication – one berth out of the postseason.
Hornet head football coach Devon Dorris is not surprised.
“We are going to have to be consistent winners before people will respect us. Respect is earned, not given,” he said.
