  • Mike Says: The Bulldogs only bring back 11 lettermen from last years Regional playoff team. This year they should be solid on defense. They play a pretty tough schedule with non-district games against Kilgore and Bellville. Look for them to go 5-5 or 6-4 in the regular season and come in 3rd in the district behind La Marque and Columbia.
  • Chris Says: Sweeny has done well in the past few years, but LaMarque wasn't in their district then.  Sure, the Bulldogs will do well in the regular season and sure, they will make the playoffs.  The won't win district and they won't make it past the second round in the postseason.
