If the old adage that defense wins championships holds true, Waxahachie has to like its chances as begins the postseason next week.

In six district games, the Indians are allowing less 10 points per game and only 198 yards per game.

The Indians have put up good defensive numbers in the past, but the difference this year is they have been taking the ball away from their opponents like never before.

Waxahachie focused on forcing turnovers in the off-season and it has paid off. In six district games, the Indians have forced 16 turnovers while giving it away just four times.

The turnovers have also helped Waxahachie’s offense score a lot of points without a lot of yards.

If the defense continues on its current pace and the offense is given a short field, Waxahachie may just be able to ride the defense into December.
