DB Kendrick Nickerson 85 tackles 7 TFL
DB Marty Williams 30 tackles 4 PBUs

Notes:
The Owls will not be a top 20 team like they usually are but they will be a favorite to win district 10-5A in 2010. They only return 7 starters but they have 43 lettermen returning which will give them the experience they need to go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season and a trip to the Area playoffs. A possible bi-district matchup may be against Dallas Skyline which would be a tough one to win.
