Notes:
The Mavericks are primed for another great season. They bring back 13 starters and 29 lettermen from a team that made the quarterfinals last season. The only thing they were missing was a QB and they got a good one now in From Fort Bend Baptist transfer McCarley. Their defensive line will be a good one with Cheeks and Johnson. They play in one of the states toughest districts and each district game will be a hard fought classic.
