WR Mark Roberts 32-671 4 TDs
LB Donovan Rubin 85 tackles
LB Brinson Lindsay 115 tackles
DB JR Justin Thomas 4 INTs

Notes:
The Mustangs should once again be a power in Region III. They should continue their winning tradition (32 winning seasons in their 33 year history) with no problems in 2010. QB Garrett will be an exciting player to watch on offense while seven defensive starters return led by LB Rubin and super Jr DB Thomas. Expect the Mustangs to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and get close to the Quarterfinals. Last years bi-district loss will be on their minds the entire season and head coach Hooks will keep them motivated.
