Enrollment: 2,880 — 2nd largest in the district out of 7 schools

Coach: Joel A. Lopez (7 years) 50-32 at Laredo Alexander; 111-66-0 all-time coaching record

Returning Lettermen: 15

Returning Starters: Offense: 5 Defense: 4

Key Players:
* WR Xavione Skaggs 1st Team All-District
* WR Mark Lozoya 2nd Team All-District
* DL JR Freddy Romo 2nd Team All-District
* DL Gino Perez 2nd Team All-District 86 tackles 8 sacks
* QB JR Aaron Swain 244-404 3,113 yards 29 TDs passing

Notes:
* Have gone 31-8 over the last 3 seasons

  • 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.

Coach: Joel A. Lopez (6 years) 41-28 at Laredo Alexander; 102-62-0 all-time coaching record

Returning Lettermen: 25

Returning Starters: Offense: 2 Defense: 4

Key Players:
* RB/WR Xavier Skaggs 1st Team All-District 77 catches 990 yards 9 TDS receiving & 866 yards 9 TDs rushing
* DL Eluid Aguero 1st Team All-District 43 tackles 8 TFL
* DB EJ Garcia 1st Team All-District 80 tackles
* OL Ricky Villarreal 1st Team All-District
* WR JR Xavione Scaggs
* DB Jesse Serna
* QB Alex Bryand
* DL Freddy Romo

Notes:
* Have gone 22-4 over the last 2 seasons
* Last years 12 wins was most in school history

  • Mike Says: The Bulldogs had an outstanding year last year. This year a 12 win season will be a lot more difficult. The offense averaged over 40 points a game last year but only return 2 starters from that unit but one of them is RB/WR Skaggs who is a difference maker. Look for them to go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season and come in 2nd or 3rd in the district behind Laredo United.
  • Chris Says: Laredo Alexander lost a lot to graduation and will have to rebuild fast if they are going to approach last season’s success.  It is doubtful the Bulldogs will repeat as District 29-5A champs, but should make the playoffs.
