  • Mike Says: The Hawks bring back 9 starters from an offense that scored 30+ points in 8 of their 11 games last year. The offensive line will be key led by Aguilar. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and with the district championship. Once in the playoffs, they will go Division I and will be good for 1 or 2 rounds.
  • Chris Says: North Richland Hills Birdville is a team that put up a lot of points last season (until the playoffs.)  The Hawks bring back the majority of their starting offense, so scoring should be no problem again.  They should take District 6-4A and look reasonable unscathed come playoff time.  If the Hawks can avoid the playoff choke, they could last a couple rounds.
