  • Mike Says: The Pirates bring back 14 starters from last seasons playoff team. Running back Keith Garcia and now Sophomore quarterback Tyler Handson come back to lead a solid offense. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and win the district championship. After that they should go 2 or 3 rounds in the Division II bracket.
  • Chris Says: Sinton is one of those teams that I like for their way cool helmet logo.  Oh yeah, and they play some pretty darn good football.  The Pirates bring back a lot of experienced starters (7 on each side of the ball) and their four returning offensive linemen should provide some nice hole for running back, Keith Garcia. Sinton should take the District 30-3A and once in the playoffs, last until they come up against one of the states many great run-stopping defenses.
