Notes:
* Have now had back to back 11-1 seasons and both times they were knocked out by Refugio in the Regional playoffs

  • Mike Says: The Pirates outscored their opponents by over 20 points per game last season. They are on a roll but only bring back 8 starters this season. Expect another big season from running back Garza. They have an interesting non-district game with Falls City early on. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 for the regular season and with the district title. After that they should go 2 or 3 rounds in the playoffs. The region is really tough though with Refugio, East Bernard and Lexington.
  • Chris Says: Poth is not in a powerhouse district so should have no problem repeating as District 15-2A Division II Champion.  The Pirates bring back very little in terms of starting experience, but the program is strong and Coach King seems to have things headed in the right direction.  Once in the playoffs, they will run into some powerfully tough teams and will need some luck to go very far.
