  • Mike Says: The Bulldawgs were knocked out of the playoffs in Bi-District last year by the Division II Runner Up and they gave them a great game. This years team brings back 10 starters from that team but none of them were all-district players. They will make the playoffs again this year but finish the regular season with a 6-4 or 7-3 record. Their games against Midway, A&M Consolidated, Killeen and Temple will all be good ones.
  • Chris Says:  Copperas Cove is one of those teams seemingly on the edge of greatness.  They have been to two championship games and came away winless.  They have had 15 straight winning seasons.  they have won 100 games in the past 10 years...  this is a good team!  It just hasn't figured out how to be a great one.  Jack Welch brings back a ton of talent and because of that, I don't expect a drop off.  The will win 7-8 games and likely exit in the first or second round of the playoffs.  Another year on the edge of greatness.
