  • Mike Says: The Badgers have had recent success going to the playoffs for the last 5 seasons. This year they will be returning some very good skill position players. The leader of the group will be superstar Baylor Mullins who does just about everything. Look for them to go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season. They have 2 great non-district games against Wall and Stamford. They will probably be 2nd or 3rd in the district behind Eastland.
  • Chris Says: Merkel has really turned things around the past few years and this will be another good one. Mr Everything, Baylor Mullins will again be all over the ball and the Badgers should go strong into the playoffs.  Once there, expect them to be around for a few rounds.
