Notes:
The Cougars tied for the most wins in school history last season with 10 wins. They will look to reach that win total again behind do everything QB Merka. Look for the Cougars to battle for the district title with Dayton and go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season. They have a very tough pre-district schedule against playoff teams Montgomery, Port Neches-Groves and Pearland Dawson. Once they are in the playoffs look for a run to the Area or Regional round.
