  • Mike Says: The Rams won their last 5 district games last year to make it to the playoffs. They should do well in the district again and come in 3rd behind Dallas Skyline and Dallas Jesuit. Last seasons Jesuit game made our 2011 Games Of The Year list. Look for them to go 6-4 or 7-3 in the regular season and then go 1 or 2 rounds into the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Richardson Berkner is in a tough district, but they seem to have the horses needed for a playoff run once again.  When you talk about their horses, you have to mention Yedidiah Louis - his numbers on the ground and through the air will be needed once again if the Rams are going to have a successful season.
