  • Mike Says: The Bulldogs won a state championship last year and along the way they had some great games going 6-0 in games decided by 10 or less. They play in one of the states toughest districts and will also play a very tough pre-district schedule with games against teams like Lindale, Whitehouse, Carthage and Henderson. One thing for sure is that they will be tested come playoff time. They graduated a large senior class and only return 3 total starters. Look for them to go 6-4 or 7-3 in the regular season and fight it out for a playoff spot against district foes Gilmer, Henderson and Kilgore.
  • Chris Says: Tyler Chapel Hill has turned into a powerhouse program.  With two straight trips to the title game, including last years win, it is safe to assume that this will be their toughest season in a few.  Not only do they graduate a ton of their players (only one starter returns from the offense) but they will be playing against world-beater teams each and every week.  The Bulldogs won't pull off another perfect season, there will be scars.  What they will do however, is fight hard and if they do manage to grab a playoff berth, they will make it a few rounds deep.
