Notes:
* Have had 3 consecutive 9 win seasons

  • Mike Says: The Braves look to make it to another 9+ win season this year. They will be very strong on the offensive side of the ball with QB Hernandez coming back. New head coach Kirchhoff from Falls City knows how to win. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season with the district title being played for in the game vs. McCamey.
  • Chris Says: Iraan knows how to win.  The bring back a dual threat QB in Zeth Hernandez and should have no problems putting points on the board.  The defense will need to step up if they are to make a long playoff run.  The Braves' biggest challenge for the district title will be McCamey but that is not insurmountable.    Expect Iraan to go at least three rounds deep in the postseason.
