Notes:
The Raiders are once again have tons of talent even though only 6 starters return from a 12-1 Regional playoff team. This is a very young team but the SOPHs and JRs are some of the best underclassmen in the state. Skyline starts off the season with a game vs. St. Thomas Florida in the Florida vs. Texas Kickoff Classic. Expect them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and then at least a run to the Regionals. A couple of good matchups in the playoffs could be against Allen or Coppell.
