New Head Coach John Ward. Ltrmen R/L:12/13. Starters returning O/D: 5/6. 2007:8-5 D1 state qtrfinals/3-1district. '08 notes: QB Joe Gillis(44-77-705-3,5TDs) & RB Brett Smith(104-655, 8TDs rushing, 21-355, 6TDs recieving) return, but McCamey lost most of OL from last years playoff team. Player to watch: RB Brett Smith(5-9, 165, 4.6). Top juniors: NG Jose Esparza(5-8, 205, 4.9), LB Raymond Urias(5-10.160, 4.7), Top soph. WR Aaron Mesa(5-9, 145, 4.8). Other prospects: QB Joe Gillis, C. Jeff Foncannon, OT Jesse Rodriguez. As district newcomer of the year NG Jesse Esparza is expected to plug up the middle on defense. This is a rebuilding year but the Badgers are up to the task. Once again rival Iraan will be the contender against the Badgers for the outright district title although the Braves are in Division 2 of District 81A. The Braves are ranked 18 of the top 25 in Class 1A by the Texas Football 2008 Magazine. Go Mighty Badgers!!!
