Notes:
* LSG Pre-Season Ranking #5
* 6 consecutive 9+ win seasons

  • Mike Says: The Raiders outscored their opponents by over 24 points per game last year. This year they will rely on a a strong defense to earn their 7th consecutive 9+ win season. They should have no problem with the district title and then duke it out with Allen for the Regional championship. They have a great pre-district lineup of games with Arlington Bowie, Arlington Martin and The Woodlands on the schedule.
  • Chris Says: Most of the time when you only return 22 lettermen and only 4 offensive starters, you would be expected to have a "down" season.  Well, if down mean 10 or 11 wins then down Dallas Skyline will be.  They are just too loaded for a big drop-off.  District 9-5A should fall easily but the Raiders could drop a couple of their non-district games.   That said, I expect their playoff run to end in the 3rd round.
