  • Mike Says: The Skyrockets are on a great run and are only looking better this year. They have the District MVP, the District OFF MVP and the District DEF MVP all coming back. This team will again put up big points with QB Ashmore and RB Gilbreath. LB Tellez will head up a tough defense. The Skyrockets are a favorite to win it all.
  • Chris Says: Wellington is a powerhouse in Class 1A and they look even tougher this season than semifinal team of last year.  The Skyrockets (what a cool mascot name) will roll through the regular season without a hiccup and have a great postseason.  Once again, they will have to find an answer for Munday if they are to make it to the title game.
