Notes:
The Mustangs regular season win streak finally came to an end at 78 with an opening game loss to Katy last season. They will get another shot at Katy on opening weekend again this year. North Shore will once again be loaded with talent. OL Flowers on offense and LB Matthews and DB Jones on defense are all D1 recruits. Expect the Mustangs to be a power in Region III. There are some great matchups in the later rounds of the playoffs with a list of possible opponents being Fort Bend Hightower, Pearland, Katy and Katy Cinco Ranch. They should go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and then go to at least the Regionals.
