Ranger College (Tex.) Preview

Ranger College is an NJCAA indpendent with a tough schedule. Like its neighbor schools in the SWJCFC, Ranger will open with a Kansas program -- Highland CC. After that it's a mix of SWJCFC teams, JV teams, and New Mexico Military. It won't be easy for Ranger to improve upon its 1-8 record of last year.
