  • Mike Says: The Bulldogs only bring back 8 starters but have 26 lettermen from last years playoff team. This years team will feature a good running game led by RB Martin and a strong offensive line. Look for them to go 6-4 or 7-3 in the regular season and battle Monahans for the district championship. They would be the Division I team in the playoffs and should make it to at least the Regionals.
  • Chris Says: Abilene Wylie will likely get off to a slow start between the tough pre-district schedule and new kids stepping into starting positions.  Once they get rolling though, the Bulldogs will do fine.  Expect them to be in the battle for the District 4-3A title and go a couple rounds deep before one of multiple weapon teams knocks them out of the playoffs.
