  • Mike Says: The Bulldogs were and exciting team to follow last year and their fan base was one of the best. This year they bring back 15 of those starters from a 12-2 Quarterfinals team. The offense will be solid with RB Whitely running behind a solid offensive line that includes Briones and Morris. Jr. LB Hoza Scott will be one to watch on the defensive side. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and fight Galena Park North Shore for the district title. They will go Division II come playoff time which could mean a rematch with Katy. I cant wait!!
  • Chris Says: La Porte not only brings back a rabid fan base, they bring back a lot of experienced players from last year's 12-2 team.  They shocked the football world with their wins over Galena Park North Shore and Katy last season.  As a fan, it was a blast to watch.  Nobody is going to look past them this season.  Their biggest challenge prior to the playoffs will again be Galena Park North Shore with the winner likely taking the District 21-5A title.  I absolutely loved all their online fan base interaction last season and hope they can build it even bigger this time around.  It is time for the Bulldogs to be represented in The Brotherhood.
