Notes:
* Have gone 17-5 over the last 2 seasons
* Sealy's teams that won 4 consecutive state titles from 1994-1997 are called the "Quad Squad"
* Now have 3 consecutive 8+ win seasons for the first time since 1995-1997

  • Mike Says: The Tigers will rely heavily on superstar Seals-Jones this season. They have lots of team speed led by running back Davis. They bring back 14 starters from last years playoff team. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season. They will battle El Campo and Bellville for the district championship.
  • Chris Says: Sealy will be a fun team to watch again this year.  Look for a lot of excitement when Ricky Seals-Jones gets his touches, but with most of last season's offense returning, he will not be the only show.    Their defensive line looks ready to cause havoc as well when the Tigers battle it out for the district title.  Once in the playoffs, expect them to fade after a couple rounds.
