  • Mike Says: The Pirates will show some improvement this year under 2nd year head coach Fitzhenry. The offense was clicking last year but the defense struggled giving up 50+ points in 3 games. This is a solid district and it will be tough to compete for a playoff spot. Expect them to finish the regular season at 2-8 or 3-7.
  • Chris Says: Longview Pine Tree brings back a lot of experience, but it is from a 1-9 team.  The playing time will serve them well and if Coach Fitzhenry can convert playing time into wins, the should show a lot of improvement this season.  4 or 5 wins is not out of the question.
