  • Mike Says: The Bulldogs had their 3rd consecutive 9+ win season last year. This years does not have a lot of players coming back but they will have star QB Swain. He threw for over 3,000 yards last year as a sophomore. If they line can keep him upright, then they can win some games. Look for them to win 7 or 8 games in the regular season with their game against Del Rio being for the district title. Then it is on to maybe the Regionals.
  • Chris Says: Laredo Alexander's Aaron Swain (QB) has some veteran receivers but not much else returning from his offense that put up 32.8 ppg last season. They absolutely rolled through 29-5A, losing only to Del Rio and should content for the title once again.  In the postseason, look for these Bulldogs to go three rounds.
