Notes:
The Tigers were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round in surprise fashion last year. This year they only have 11 lettermen coming back but they will have RB Davis and WR/DB Seals-Jones to rely on. What a great game they had vs. Wimberley this year. We are all waiting for that one this year...it will be another classic.
