Notes:
* Have gone 21-4 over the last 2 seasons

  • Mike Says: The Bulldogs 2 losses came against 3A powerhouse Coldpring-Oakhurst and Tatum. This years team will feature a strong offensive line and wide receiver/defensive back McKnight. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 in the regular season and fight Franklin and Teague for the district championship.
  • Chris Says: New coach, Joe Kettler takes over a Crockett team that had a great showing last year before that heartbreaking loss to Tatum in the Quarterfinals.  The Bulldogs bring back 18 lettermen and 5 starters on each side of the ball.  That should ensure this is going to be a good season.  The battle for district with Franklin and Teague may be tougher than their first two playoff games.
