  • Mike Says: The Yellow Jackets are set to have another great season. They bring back 14 starters and an amazing 40 lettermen from last years playoff team. A'Shawn Robinson will be a star on the line and will get people's attention. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 in new coach Whitten's first season. They should come in 3rd or 4th in the district behind Aledo and Fort Worth Southwest.
  • Chris Says: Fort Worth Arlington Heights looks to do well this year.  Forty returning lettermen has the be the largest number I have seen on any team this year.  In addition to the lettermen, they return most of their offensive starters as well as some key defensive starters.  They have a real good chance to make the playoffs but once in the posteason, will have a hard time hanging past the second round.
