Coaches tap Kilgore, Navarro as Faves

If the annual preseason coach's poll is any indication, the 2013 Southwest Junior College Football Conference season should be a wide open affair.

Five different teams received first place votes, headed by Kilgore and Navarro with two top picks apiece by league coaches. Kilgore and Navarro played in the first round of the SWJCFC playoffs last season.

Kilgore and Navarro both received 51 points, barely edging third place Northeastern Oklahoma A&M (50) and Tyler (47).

Navarro, the 2012 SWJCFC champion after defeating NEO in Miami, Okla., in the conference championship game and later winning the Heart of Texas Bowl, also earned one second-place vote, one for third and two for fourth.

Kilgore had three third-place votes and a fourth-place vote in addition to its pair of first-place nods by coaches.

Trinity Valley is fifth in the coaches' poll, followed by Blinn and Cisco.

Ten points were given for first-place votes, with nine for second, eight for third, seven for fourth, six for fifth and five for fifth.
