Notes:
The Hurricanes will not be as strong as they normally are in 2010. With a new head coach and only one defensive starter coming back they will need to rely on a lot of unproven talent. The talent they have though should be enough for them to win the district title again and go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season. After that maybe a trip to the Area or Regional round of the playoffs. This team will be tested early with a trip to The Woodlands in week #2.
