  • Mike Says: The Tigers bring back quite a few players from last years playoff team. This years looks to have a great passing attack with QB Pemberton throwing to WR's Smith & Golden. Look for them to win 6 or 7 games and come in 2nd or 3rd in the district.
  • Chris Says: Coach Kevin Garvin says he has the team to take the District 14-3A title and it looks like he is right.  The Tigers are my favorite to win the district partly because they have the horses this season (Pemberton, Smith, Wright, Golden...) and partly because the district is pretty light.  They will have a playoff run that ends quickly as they go up against the best of the East Texas talent.
