McKinney – The Texas A&M University-Commerce football team is predicted to finished third in the Lone Star Conference in 2019, as announced at the LSC’s Annual Football Media Day on Monday.

The Lions went 10-3 and were regional semifinalists in 2018, marking their fourth straight NCAA playoff run and sixth consecutive postseason appearance.

The 2019 A&M-Commerce squad will be in its first season under head coach David Bailiff, who is entering his 15th season as a collegiate head coach. Bailiff along with all-star candidates Amon Simon (Humble – Atascocita) and Dominique Ramsey (Converse – Judson) represented the Lions at Media Day festivities at McKinney ISD’s Stadium and Community Center.

A&M-Commerce earned 169 points with one first-place vote in voting conducted by the league’s head coaches, media, and sports information directors. Tarleton is predicted to finish first and Midwestern State second. Behind the Lions is Eastern New Mexico in fourth, Angelo State in fifth, West Texas A&M in the sixth, Texas A&M-Kingsville in seventh, UT Permian Basin in the eighth, and Western New Mexico in ninth.
