  • Mike Says: The Mules have 14 returning starters from last years 12-2 Semifinal team. Their offense which averaged 42.5 points per game last year will be very good again behind offensive linemen Atwood and Johnson. Look for them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season. The game vs. Littlefield in the final regular season game will be for the district title. They should make it to at least the Quarterfinals with challenges from Littlefield, Idalou and Wall.
  • Chris Says: Muleshoe is once again loaded for bear.  They bring back some extremely talented linemen and that will ensure they are able to accomplish their gameplan more often than not.  The Mules should roll through district en route to another deep playoff run.
