Roos move to 5A, join rest of KISD in new 8-5A

Herald/TJ MAXWELL - Killeen head football coach Sam Jones, left, and defensive coordinator Neil Searcy look over the reclassification and realignment packet Thursday at the Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex in Round Rock. Killeen moved up to Class 5A and joins the other Killeen ISD schools along with Belton, Copperas Cove, Temple and Waco Midway in Region I, District 8-5A.

The Killeen Kangaroos may have missed the playoffs in 2014, but Neil Searcy knew the team wasn't very far from the postseason.

"If you look at our program like it was a car, it's not a broken down car," Searcy said. "It's just a car that needs a tune up. We're going to do some things to tune up our engine and get revved up for the football season."
