  • Mike Says: The Raiders are looking for a big season this year. The offense will be outstanding with RB Anderson and WR's Ateman, Brubaker and Jones. The district title should be between them and Sherman. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and then 2 or 3 rounds into the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Wylie East is poised to take the next step this season. Jabari Anderson (RB) will take some pressure off QB, Garrett McCain on the offense and the LB core of Dues and Eckles will provide trouble for opponents.  The Raiders have what they need to win the district and then should be good for a couple rounds deep into the playoffs.
