Notes:
The Yellow Jackets started off rough last year going 1-6 before finishing up with 3 consecutive district wins to make the playoffs. Things will be tough again this season with only 6 returning starters but the return of QB Cate and LB Guess helps. I have always heard that its a good season if you beat your rival which the Yellow Jackets did last year beating Paradise 35-14 in the "Battle of 114".
