  • Mike Says: The Mustangs had a great season last year advancing all the way to the Regionals before losing. This years team features two big guys on the line with Ruiz on offense and Sharp on defense. Look for the to battle San Benito for the district title and go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season. After that they should go 1 or 2 rounds into the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: McAllen Memorial turned in a great season last year and returns a lot of experience players.  Coach Bill Littleton looks to lead his team to at least a share of the district title again this year.  The Mustangs bring back a very strong offensive line that will certainly help the fact that most of the specialty positions will be new folks.   Expect those anchors on the line to smooth the transition and McAllen Memorial to be a factor from the very first district game versus last season's co-champion, San Benito.  Whether they win that game or not, the Mustangs will see postseason play and should still be around two or three rounds deep.
