  • Mike Says: The Bobcats went undefeated last year in the regular season but the overall record of those 9 Texas teams was 44-52. This year they have a much tougher district. Only 4 starters will return. LB Axelsen will be a force on defense. Expect the Bobcats to go either 5-5 or 6-4 in the regular season and compete for that 3rd playoff spot.
  • Chris Says: One of the things you can count on in the Texas Panhandle is that the Sunray Bobcats are going to field a good team year in and year out. That said, I don't expect them to breeze through the regular season undefeated this time around.  Sunray will likely take home 6 or 7 wins and go a round or two deep in the playoffs.
