Notes:
Tyler Lee will once again be a solid team in 2009. They will battle DeSoto for the 11-5A district title. With a good running game and a solid defense the Red Raiders will still be around in the Area or Regional playoffs. The play a very tough pre-district schedule and are always ready come playoff time. Expect them to go 6-4 or 7-3 in the regular season.
