* Their 12 wins last year was the most since 1986

  • Mike Says: The Mavericks only bring back 9 starters from last years Quarterfinals team. Those coming back though are good ones. The defense led by a good group of linebackers will lead the way. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and win the district. After that they should go 2 or 3 rounds into the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Eastland had a great season last year but loses a lot to graduation.  Brandon Allen will get the bulk of the carries as they attempt to repeat last seasons success. Expect Merkel and Breckenridge should challenge them for the district title, but the Mavericks have a great chance of coming out on top.  They will make the playoffs regardless of whether they take district or not and should be alive a few rounds later.
