Notes:
The Bulldogs should make it 11 consecutive 9+ win seasons in 2010. They will rely heavily on their offense early on behind RB's Franklin and Bailey. Their defense will depend on several JR's to lead the way. The Bulldogs open the season against powerhouse Dallas Highland Park and that will let them know if they are ready for another championship run or not. Coach Keeling's squad can expect an 8-2 or 9-1 regular season and a trip to at least the Regionals. A possible bi-district matchup could be against Stephenville which would knock out a top 20 team early.
