  • Mike Says: The Cougars are set to have another nice season. They have superstars on both sides of the ball with Mr. Do Everything QB Lorenzo Joe on offense and LB Cordell Dorsey on defense. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and then 1 or 2 rounds into the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Abilene Cooper's biggest lost last season was by only 8 points and they bring back QB Lorenzo Joe, Trey Dye, Cordell Dorsey, Kerry Sims, Josh Hale - the list goes on and on.  I see no reason why the Cougars won't not 8-10 wins this year, lasting to the 2nd or 3rd round of the postseason.
