  • Mike Says: The Wolverines are set to have another great season. They bring back an amazing 27 lettermen and 18 starters from a team that made the Quarterfinals. Gover, Garcia and Rojas will all be key players this year. Look for them to win the district title and go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season. Once in the playoffs a trip to at least the Regionals is in the cards. Expect tough competition from Wellington in the Region.
  • Chris Says: Springlake-Earth may be the smallest team in the district, but you can't tell it by the way they play football.  They have a huge offensive line and that will certainly open up some holes.  Expect the Wolverines to take the district and square off against Wellington a couple rounds into the playoffs.
