  • Mike Says: The Bobcats bring back 17 starters from last seasons 5-5 team. They needed one more win last season in district play this year and it will most likely be the same this year where they need 5 district wins. The bad thing is that they lost those 3 district games by a total of 130-21. If they can turn one of those games around then they will make it in. Look for them to go 5-5 or 4-6 during the regular season and have an outside shot at that 3rd playoff spot.
  • Chris Says: Skidmore-Tynan brings back a lot of familiar faces on each side of the ball, but a new face at head coach - Russell Joy.  Joy brings some solid coaching experience and that, added to a solid crop of players, should mean success.   Their district is certainly not going to be easy and Refugio will win it.  If Skidmore-Tynan gets everything rolling early in the season, they have a shot at the playoffs.  If the "get to know you" period between coach and players is too long, it may be next season.
