  • Mike Says: The Tigers bring back a good group of players in the backfield along with 14 total returning Starters. Look for them to improve a little but they may still wind up in the middle of the pack. They should go 6-4 or 5-5 in the regular season and fight for that last playoff spot.
  • Chris Says:  Linden-Kildare is a team that is on the rise.  They bring back a ton on both sides of the ball and look to be improving.  I am just not sure if it is going to be enough to propel them into the playoffs.
