  • Mike Says: The Tors have not had a lot of success lately. Coach Kimble Anders a former NFL running back hopes to turn things around. This years team brings back 9 starters on defense but it was a defense that gave up lots of points last year. Look for them to struggle again this year but show improvement.
  • Chris Says: Galveston Ball has a long and storied history, but recently it has not been very good.  Not only did they manage just two wins last season, their losses were extremely lopsided.  District 24-4A is full of quality teams so the Tornadoes will not have it any easier in 2013.  The 3-time Pro bowler, Kimble Anders returns as head coach to his hometown with a world of experience winning.  This will be a great story if he is able to even begin to turn things around.  I don't expect a miracle season for Galveston this year, but I expect them to improve and keep improving.  It may not show up in the "W" column, but it will show up in the athletes.
