  • Mike Says: The Tigers have a good group returning from last years team. The district is not overly strong so they have a great chance at winning the district title. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 during the regular season and go 1 or 2 rounds into the playoffs. They open the season against Pittsburg and there is a good possibility that could be their bi-district match-up come playoff time.
  • Chris Says: Wills Point has a lot returning on offense including a lot of experience on the O-line.   With Elijah Roberson anchoring the defense, the Tigers look to do very well this season.  Expect them to battle Crandall and Kaufman for the district title and take a solid two or three game trip into the postseason.
