Notes:
Cibolo Steele is #6 in All-Time Wining % in class 4A in only 3 years of varsity play. They ended last season in a great playoff game vs. Austin Lake Travis. This year, they return 9 starters and look to get another 10+ win season and at least a trip to the quarterfinals. District 27-4A may be the toughest in Class 4A so they will Kerrville Tivy and Alamo Heights for the title. Look for the Knights to finish the regular season at 8-2 or 9-1 and a trip to the quarterfinals.
