Notes:
The Chargers lost a lot to graduation from last years 8-3 team. This years team will once again feature a great defense. They will be led by All-State DL McClarty. On offense, watch out for young QB Cripps. Another matchup vs. Fort Bend Hightower looks to be a good bet in Bi-District play. Last years game was a classic with Hightower winning 41-35 in OT.
