  • Mike Says: The Wildcats only have 12 returning lettermen and a 2-8 JV coming up. They do have a very good group of defensive players and RB Bisby coming back though. Look for them to rely even more on Bisby and go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season then go 3 or 4 rounds in the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Gregory-Portland doesn't bring a lot back from their Regional appearance last season, but what they do have returning is talented.  Coach Matt Anastasio will have to bring the new athletes up to speed quick if the are going be a factor in District 30-4A.  The Wildcats will be a playoff team and should last 2 or 3 rounds.
