  • Mike Says: The Bobcats looks to continue their recent success this year. They do not bring back a lot of players but they will feature a strong offensive line and QB Will Smith. They will need to get past Hallettsville again this year after losing to them in the regular season and then again in the playoffs. Look for them to get 7 or 8 wins in the regular season and get that 2nd playoff spot. Once in the playoffs they could reach the Regionals again.
  • Chris Says: I think Hempstead will take a tough District 14-2A en route to one of their best seasons. It will come down to one lucky bounce in the game between them and Hallettsville but I think revenge is on their mind after two losses to them last season.  Whoever wins the regular season game is likely to lose in the playoffs when they again rematch.
