Notes:
* Their 8 wins last year was the least since 2006

  • Mike Says: The Wildcats are moving back up to Class 2A for the first time in 4 years. The bad thing for 2A is that the last time the Wildcats where in this classification they won the state championship beating Elysian Fields in the Division II 2007 championship. They enjoyed their stay in 1A also going 46-8. With all of that success, they are set for another great season. They will be young with only 8 starters coming back but they will be strong at linebacker and wide receiver. Look for them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and fight Cisco for the regional championship.
  • Chris Says: I love me some Canadian Wildcats football.  There, got that out of my system.  🙂  Canadian climbs back up to Class 2A and it really shouldn't matter.  When 8 wins is your down year, you are a pretty solid program.  Sure, they have a lot of youngsters moving up with some big shoes to fill, but that is what Canadian football is about - stepping up and turning it on.  The Wildcats should win their district and could very well be alive four rounds deep in the playoffs.

    8-2 Wildcats record is not even close to their potential consoidering they lost 2 games by a total of 2 points! I loook forwar to seeing them play Cisco and the winner of that game headed to Texas Stadium eventualy.
