Notes:
The Wildcats are set for a championship run in 2011. They lost to now 3 time defending champion Daingerfield last season in the semifinals but they were so close to knocking off the champs. QB Huseman and RB Silvas will pace the offense while the Johnsons (Matt & Zach) will take care of the defensive side. Littlefield plays in one of the states toughest districts and with games against Muleshoe, Bushland and Childress they will be prepared when the playoffs come around.
