A new football season at Wylie High School means two things.
First, that the Bulldogs will have a challenging slate of games ahead of them that would push many teams to their limit, and second, that a new group of senior leaders must — and most likely will — emerge to help them navigate it.
Aside from the obvious fact that Wylie will be competing in Class 5A for the first time, the 2018 campaign will mirror most others before it in those two regards.
With five opponents ranked in the top 20 of their respective classifications by Texas Football magazine, the Bulldogs’ schedule will force them to show up every week ready compete. And with just three starters back on both sides of the football, they’ll be relying on some new faces to tackle that challenge.
