  • Mike Says: The Yellowjackets will have a tough time this year with their new classification and district. They went 50-71 from 1996-2006 the last time they were in 5A. They may surprise a team or two in district play but it will probably not be enough to get them into the playoffs. Expect them to go 3-7 or 4-6 for the season.
  • Chris Says: Rockwall has a lot of talent returning from last season and that will help them, but they move up in classification which is going to be tough.  12-5A is a solid district and battling the likes of Longview, Rockwall-Heath, Mesquite Horn, Tyler Lee and Mesquite will make it a near impossibility to reach the postseason.
