Notes:
* Have had 9+ win seasons 5 of the last 7 years

  • Mike Says: The Roughnecks surprised some people last year going 11-1 and making it to the Regionals. They return 13 starters from that team and this time they will not surprise anyone. The offensive and defensive lines will be solid led by Troy Holdman. Look for them to have another 9+ win season and go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and then 1 or 2 rounds into the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Sundown doesn't bring back a ton of players, but the ones that do return are experienced.  For that reason, they will be solid again this season.  The Roughnecks will roll again this season and should be around three rounds into the playoffs.
