  • Mike Says: The Bulldogs defense only gave up 8.2 points per game last year that included 4 shutouts. They bring 8 starters back from that defense including LB Garza who was the districts defensive MVP. The offense will be led by a big offensive line. Look for them to go 8-2 or 7-3 in the regular season and win the district title. Once in the playoffs they will go 2 or 3 rounds with the top competition coming from Cameron Yoe.
  • Chris Says: Marion is a fun team.  They have a lot of spirit and are sure to put up a battle in any game.  They bring back 16 players and ALL of them are starters - that means a lot.  The Bulldogs will win the district and should have a good run, surprising a couple teams along the way.
