  • Mike Says: The Wildcats had another great year last year. This years team bring back 17 all-district positions and 2 all-state players. QB Arbuckle and WR Hudson will head up a very exciting offense. They are our #2 ranked team in the state and will battle #3 Cisco for the Regional crown. It looks like a Canadian vs. Refugio championship game.
  • Chris Says:  Canadian looks to have their best team since their championship run ('07-'09) from a few years back.  They bring back more than just numbers of starters, they bring a lot of very talented players.  The will fight to make it out of the Region, but have a good chance to return to the title game.
