  • Mike Says: The Indians are set to make another great run this year. They bring back a lot of experience and a strong set of skill players. Their offensive line will be good led by Will Malek. Their pre-district game against Hallettsville will be a good test for them. Look for them to win 8 or 9 games in the regular season with their game against Shiner being for the district title. Once in the playoffs, they should go 2 or 3 rounds.
  • Chris Says:  Ganado should be better this year than last – and that’s saying a lot!  The will once again battle Shiner for the district title, but should make it deeper into the playoffs thanks to the larger number of returning starters.
