Notes:
* Have had 10+ win seasons 3 of the last 4 years

  • Mike Says: The Lions won by an average of over 25 points per game last year. They may not do the same this year but their offense led by RB Haskins will be very good. Their offense was held under 28 points only twice last year and they lost both times. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 in the regular season and finish 2nd in the district behind Daingerfield.
  • Chris Says: New Boston has averaged over 7 wins a season for the past decade and this year will be no different.  I expect Damien Haskins to step up as the main ball carrier this season and shatter his yardage total from last seasons impressive outing as the #2 guy.  The shouldn't lose more than three games in the regular season and another trip to Regionals is likely.
