  • Mike Says: The Mustangs have a lot of experience coming back this year. They will need every bit of it to compete for a playoff spot. Look for them to go 4-6 or 5-5 in the regular season and are a long shot to make the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Nixon-Smiley has a lot of young talent moving up to the varsity level as well as several players on both O & D returning.  This should help them continue to improve over last season.    They are in a very tough District 13-2A DII and will need a slip up by Karnes City and Dilley to make it into the playoffs.
