Notes:
Its time to figure out what life will be without Garrett Gilbert at Austin Lake Travis. Their will probably never be another Gilbert but JR QB Michael Brewer looks to be another great QB for the Cavaliers. He has good receivers and a good offensive line to help out. What people dont realize is that the defense is also very good. Crow and Lazarus will be tough to get past again this year. I am not sure that Lake Travis can make it 3 in a row but they will get close. Expect them to go 8-2 or 9-1 (yes they will finally lose a game) and go 2 or 3 rounds deep into the playoffs.
