  • Mike Says: The Wildcats have a great shot at winning the district title this year. Once in the playoffs they may be one of the better Division II teams in the region competing with Prosper and Wylie East. Soph DB Pryor will be one to watch over the next couple of years. Looks for the Wildcats to go 7-3 in the regular season and be at the top of the district.
  • Chris Says: This is an even better team than last season.  The should take care of business in district 14-4A and walk away with the title.  Sulphur Springs can expect 7 or 8 regular season wins despite some pretty tough games - including a rematch against the Corsicana team that knocked them out of the playoffs last season.   In that matchup however, the Wildcats are stronger, while Corsicana graduated Cameron Washington's 3,000 rushing yard.  Expect Sulphur Springs to go three rounds deep.
