District 7-6 ll-District

DeSoto, earning its first state championship, took top honors in All-District selections in what was the UL's most competitive district. In a vote of coaches, DeSoto quarterback Shawn Robinson was overall MVP with DeSoto linebacker Kolby Watts as Defensive MVP and Cedar Hill quarterback Avery Davis as the Offensive MVP.

DeSoto, Cedar Hill and Duncanville represented the only three schools from the UIL district with three schools reaching the third round of the state football playoffs. DeSoto had to get past Cedar Hill in the regional final to win the UIL state title over Cibolo Steele and Duncanville reached the third round before being eliminated by then No. 1-ranked Allen.
