Notes:
* Back to back 1-9 seasons

  • Mike Says: The Rangers had another difficult year last year. The good news for this year is that they bring 7 starters back on offense. The bad new is that it is from an offense that averaged just a little over 10 points per game in district play. I don't expect a lot of improvement again this year so look for them to go 2-8 or 1-9 this season.
  • Chris Says: It looks to be another rough season for Fort Bend Clements.  They are in a very tough district 23-5A that doesn't appear to be getting any easier.    They should do better than last year with the core of their starters returning, but even with 4 wins, won't be heading to the playoffs this season.
