  • Mike Says: The Raiders shocked the entire state last year with their run to the semifinals. They ended the regular season pretty well improving to 6-4 and making the playoffs for the first time in their short 3 year history. Not bad but thing really got going then winning 4 playoff games. Not sure if they can top that one but they will try. Look for them to get 5 or 6 wins in the regular season and get the 3rd or 4th playoff spot. No run to the semifinals this year though.
  • Chris Says: Leander Rouse graduated a ton of experience and won't be the surprising team they were last year.  The team has a lot of belief in themselves so that should be good for some wins, but duplicating last years success will be difficult.  Nobody will look past them this season but their schedule is light enough that they should be able to play .500 ball.  That should be enough to get them to the playoffs but expect the Raiders to be gone by the third round at the latest.
