LSG State Ranking: #17

Notes:
The Wildcats made it all the way to the semifinals last year before runnning into longtime rival La Marque. They lost quite a bit to graduation but a streak of 27 consecutive winning seasons shows that coach Danaher will always field a tough team. The wildcat defense will make it difficult on teams highlighted by a top notch secondary.
