  • Mike Says: The Tors need a lot of improvement to compete in this district. This is one of the stats toughest districts with Pearland Dawson, Friendswood and Texas City leading the way. Expect them to go 2-8 or 1-9 for the season.
  • Chris Says: Galveston Ball is going to have another tough season, but last year ended worse that it could have because of injuries.  District 24-4A is made up of some really good teams but there is an outside chance that the Tornadoes could eek into the playoffs if a) someone above them slips up and b) they manage to keep their injuries down.
