Bastrop – Last Season Bastrop struggled and finished 1-6-1, with a rank of 14. The Bears have an average of 3-4 and ranked 10. This past spring Bastrop was in the final 4 with a 6-2 record. In 2020 Bastrop was CTYFL champions. With the Bears rebuilding with 2 Pee Wee teams that was contending then it’s easy to think the Bears can contend for a championship and I believe they will be in the running for a Final 4 spot.
Cedar Creek – Last Season Cedar Creek field 2 teams that finished 5 and 6 in rankings. On average the Eagles finish 4-3 and ranked 7. Cedar Creek has been a contender in flag most of the years they have been in CTYFL. I wouldn’t be surprised if they are not contending again.
Del Valle – This will be Del Valles first fall season. They did play in the spring and ended up 3-5. The fall season is a different beast. It will be interesting to see how they adjust. I don’t see the Cardinals contending just yet.
East Austin – The Panthers are new to CTYFL and after crapping out in TYFA I don’t think they will make a splash this season. CTYFL Rookie Flag is a very competitive division. I believe they will need a few years before they make any run for a championship.
Elgin – Last Season the Wildcats fielded 2 teams and both teams finish near the bottom of the standings. The spring season didn’t do them any favors as the Wildcats finished 0-8. On average Elgin finishes 1-6 and ranked 13. Elgin doesn’t have much to build on and I would leave them out the conversation of Final 4 teams.
Georgetown – Last Season the Texans fielded 2 teams that finished 6 and 8. This past spring the Texans finished with both teams 7-1 and ranked 2 and 3. On average Georgetown finishes 3-4 and ranked 8. I believe right now they are contending but how long will it last? Well until I see the downfall, I will have them as a contender/bubble team.
Hutto – Last Season Hutto fielded 2 teams and both teams finished in the top 4. Hutto Hustling would lose to Faith Academy Blue in the championship. This past spring, they also fielded 2 teams and Hutto Fighting would win the championship. On average Hutto finished 6-2 ranked 6. Hutto will be a final 4 team. The question is will they have 2 again? I would say it is a maybe. Mark them down as a contender.
Jarrell – New to CTYFL, they are looking to make a statement. I believe it’s easier to make it in the flag division. I don’t know how they will fair. So, until we see them on the field, they are not in the conversation of being in the Final 4.
Kyle – Last Season the Invaders fielded 2 teams that finished 8 and 16 in rankings. This past spring, they finished 0-7-1. On average Kyle finishes 3-4 and ranked 10. Kyle is a hit and miss in this division. Kyle hasn’t built a foundation in this division to be considered a contender for a final 4 team.
Leander – Last season Leander fielded 4 teams (why couldn’t they convince some kids to play tackle?) and they finished ranked 9,10,12 and dead last at 17. On average Leander is 3-5 and ranked 7. They have all that talent and the best they did was 4-4. They have a foundation but not enough to consider them a contender/bubble team
North Austin – The last time North Austin fielded a Flag team was 2019. On average the Mavericks finishes 5-3 and ranked 7. I don’t have confidence in North Austin fielding a team so I will not consider them a contender/bubble team.
Round Rock – The Tigers hasn't fielded a team since 2018. This past spring, they did have success that saw them finish 5-3. On average Round Rock finishes 1-7-1 and ranked 17. If the spring is a stepping stone for them and they are able to field a team then I would see them being a contender/bubble team.
SAO – The Scorpions have been MIA in this division since 2018. On average SAO finishes 3-5 and ranked 10. I doubt they field a team, and I won’t even consider them in the talks to be a contender.
Unity – With the assumption that Unity will field a team in every division as they have the players to do so. It would be easy to assume that they will be contenders
To put a nice bow on this division, I have Bastrop, Cedar Creek, Georgetown, Hutto, Round Rock and Unity as contenders/bubble teams. Once I get my hands on an official schedule to see who has teams then I post my pre-season Final 4 predictions along with week 1 predictions!!
