Notes:
* They have been in the last 3 state championship games
* Awesome talent for a 1A team in Chappell and Alexander (both are D1 recruits)
* Their new QB will have plenty of great targets like Ramirez and Lewis
* Expect the Wildcat to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and compete against a few other of the best 1A teams in the state in their own district in Stratford and Sunray
* Another championship game is possible. Once the playoffs start...games vs. New Deal and Albany start showing up in the Area round so it will be a tough road
