  • Mike Says: The Tigers Were 6-0 at home last year and defeated 2A Division I Champion Melissa which was their only loss of the season. This years team does not have a lot of starters coming back but they will compete for the district championship with Whitewright. They will feature a strong defensive front. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 in the regular season and then go 2 or 3 rounds into the playoffs. Corsicana Mildred will provide strong competition in the region (Mildred won 49-0 last year in the Quarterfinals).
  • Chris Says: Gunter doesn't bring back a lot of starters, but they do have 18 returning lettermen.  Depending on how much playing time they saw last season, it could be enough to give them another district title.  The Whitewright to end the regular season could very well be the deciding factor.  Nandin, Lara and Shipp will provide some of that needed leadership on the defensive side.  The playoffs are all but guaranteed and once in postseason, four rounds deep is not out of the question.
