Notes:
* Have now had back to back best seasons in their school history

  • Mike Says: The Warriors are primed for another great season. They have stars in all areas. RB Hicks will be featured on offense, DB Waller leads the defense and K Grogran is on of the states best. Their first two games of the season will be LSG Games Of The Week for sure with match-ups against DeSoto and Dallas Skyline. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and be the 3-5A District Champion. They will go Division I and is a Region I favorite along with Southlake Carroll, Euless Trinity and DeSoto.
  • Chris Says: Arlington Martin looks to have another solid season as they bring back an amazing 31 lettermen.  That is a lot of experienced players.  Kyle Hicks will carry the load (and the ball) on offense and a host of defensive players should again put up a stingy defense.  Skyline and DeSoto will be serious tests of their ability to survive deep into the playoffs, but those games come at the beginning of the season, so won't be as telling as if they came in district.  The district title is theirs to lose and depending on the matchups in the playoffs, the Warriors could be alive several rounds deep again this year.
