Notes:
The dymanic brother duo of Tyren and Kyren Watts has turned the program at New Waverly around. The Bulldogs are a Top 25 2A team now instead of the team everyone wants to play at Homecoming. Look for them to end the regular season at 8-2 or 9-1 and antoher trip to at least the Regionals. They were no match for Daingerfield last year but I bet they would like a rematch this year.
