Central Private Rebels
Coach: Joey Sanchez (2-8 at school, 2-8 overall)
2014: 2-4, 0-4
Looking back: A couple of nondistrict wins were steps in the right direction for a rebuilding program.
Moving forward: Early success will be crucial for the Rebels as they step up into 3A.
Ask The Advocate: Look for the Rebels to be better in 2015, but the improvement may not lead to a winning season or playoff berth.
Last playoff appearance: 2009, lost in second round
Projected offensive starters: *TE Landon Bryson, OT Royce Richard, *C Logan Ford, OG Zach Alexander, OG Max Rogers, OT Trent Myrick, QB Cade Sanchez, RB Hunter Todd, RB Baylen Watkins, *SE Cole Averette, *SE Brandt Glover
Projected defensive starters: *DE Landon Bryson, *DE Royce Richard, *DT Logan Ford, LB Hunter Todd, LB Baylen Watkins, LB Austin Slater, *LB Jude Fontenot, DB Cameron Callihan, DB Kory Nijoka, DB Brandt Glover, *DB Cole Averette

Silliman Institute Wildcats
Coach: T.J. Davis (35-21)
2014: 9-3, 3-1
Looking back: The Wildcats had one of their best seasons in recent memory and were led by TCU freshman Jozie Milton.
Moving forward: Milton and other standouts like Jordan Talley graduated, but Davis’ team still has its share of weapons led by Zach Kelly.
Ask The Advocate: There’s no reason why Silliman can’t enjoy another winning season and some playoff success despite the move up to 3A.
