  • Mike Says: The Bearcats bring back 13 starters from one of the Bearcats all-time best teams last year. The receivers will be super with Harvey and Luper. On defense DB Mask and LB Woods will be tough on opponents. Look for the to fight Wylie East for the district championship and go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season. After that they should play 2 or 3 playoff games.
  • Chris Says: Coach G.J. Kinne's Bearcats are on a tear and I don't expect it to end this season.   Sherman brings back a lot of players (25) from last year including some solid players on both sides of the ball.  The Bearcats will take the district this year and may surprise a lot of folks in the playoffs.
