  • Mike Says: The Wildcats are set to have a great season with 11 all-district positions coming back. They will have lots of team speed especially with RB Juwan Washington. They are a little inexperienced on the lines but they should be o.k. Look for them to win 9 or 10 games in the regular season and then they will win playoff games until their match-up with Argyle which will be one to go watch.
  • Chris Says: Kennedale should be the district champ in 5-4A DI because it is frankly not that strong.  Their pre-district matchups against teams like Gainesville and Dallas Carter will do more to show us how good the Wildcats are than any of their league games.  Senior RB, Juwon Washington will have another big season if he offensive line can develop quickly.  If the o-line comes around, expect 2,500 yards out of him, if not... it will be a much harder road for the Wildcats.
