Notes: First year head coach and former Gilmer assistant Kurt Traylor is taking over the Tyler Lee program. The Red Raiders 2-8 record from 2016 could have been a lot better. Lee lost several games by one possession, so it must learn out to close out contests in the fourth quarter. Having a leader at quarterback in Chance Amie will be big for Traylor and company in 2017. The Red Raiders defense, which has been the teams weakness the last several years must continue to improve.
