Notes:
The Lions will rely on a great defense led by Hudman, Petree and Parker. Bumguardner did a great job last season coming in as a backup to lead them to the Quarterfinals. Another 8+ win season should be no problem.  The only real challenge in District 4-1A is the Stamford Bulldogs but if they can get past them, it could be another great run for the Lions
