Notes:
Shiner will add to their 11 year winning streak with another great season and battle Ganado for the 27-1A district title. They dont have many starters coming back so it will be a stretch for them to get further than the Quarterfinals in 2009. The Comanches will be led by a very good back in Greathouse who should go for over 1500 yards this season.
