  • Mike Says: The Chaparrals will continue their winning ways this year with 12 starters and 28 lettermen coming back. The defense will be very good again. Last year they outscored their district opponents 255-14. They have a few really tough non-district games against Cedar Park and Cibolo Steele which should be interesting. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and fight Austin Lake Travis for the district championship. They will probably go Division II in the playoffs and be able to go 2 or 3 rounds.
  • Chris Says: Austin Westlake will be a blast to watch as usual this season.  The atmosphere at Chaparral Stadium is one of the best in the Austin area.   When they play host to Austin Lake Travis this year, it will be standing room only and you know I will be there.  I expect more of the same from Westlake this year - more winning, more exciting games, more fun.  They should stay alive in the playoffs possibly as far as Region.
