Notes:
Cisco is only returning 8 starters and 12 lettermen from last years Runner Up team. With that, it will be vey hard for the Loboes to repeat in 2009. They will feature a very stong running game and of course a tough defense. The district 6-AA title will come down to them and Clyde. Expect an 8-2 or 9-1 regular season and a run 2 or 3 rounds deep into the playoffs.

History:
7 consecutive winning seasons
Only 1 losing season under West and least wins after that is 8
3 consecutive 14 win seasons
