Notes:
Del Valle will have a tough time getting more wins than losses again this year but it could happen. Look for them to finish around 5-5 and fighting for that 4th playoff spot in 17-4A. Their offense is solid with Cortez, Chisholm and Johnson all returning. Can the Cardinals get their 4th winning season in the last 26 years in '09?
