Notes:
* Allman led them to the championship game in his first season
* They are moving from Region IV to Region II
* All eyes will be on their opening week matchup vs. Austin Lake Travis
* With 35 returning lettermen coming back from a Runner Up team that lost in OT expect the Chaparrals to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and win the district title
* Once in the playoffs things will be tough early on with Stony Point, The Woodlands and Klein Collins as possible opponents
