  • Mike Says: The Tigers were the surprise team of last year making their first ever run to the championship game. They bring back 11 starters from that team but QB Demarcus Ayers is gone and he is the player that sparked this team last year. Look for this team to do well though. They should win 8 or 9 games and compete with Ennis for the district title. Lovejoy and Whitehouse is the top competition in the region.
  • Chris Says: Lancaster is one of those teams that made everyone sit up and take notice.  While graduation hurt them a lot, the Tigers do bring back a lot of experience.  I don't see another shot at the title game this year, but could be a live 2 or 3 rounds in.
