Notes:
* Should have a strong running game behind a very good Offensive Line
* Expect the Wildcats to go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season and battle Flour Bluff for the district title
* They should go two or three rounds into the playoffs. An interesting game would be vs. Port Lavaca Calhoun in those rounds
