QB/S Rush Plumlee 1000 yards rushing
QB Trey Masek 1000 yards rushing

Notes:
Giddings will once again be one of the top 3A teams in the state. Eric Rimes is the real deal and will make a run at over 2000 rushing yards in 2009. Look for them to continue their streak of 10+ win seasons. The Buffaloes should go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and then make a push to the quarter or semifinals.

History:
4 consecutive 10+ win seasons
6 year winning streak

    WHY DO YOU REQUIRE VISITING ANNOUNCERS TO BE OUT OF THE PRESS BOX NO LATER THAN 15 MINUTES AFTER THE GAME?

What are your thoughts?
