Yeah, Baxter will be down for a year or two. They have a younger QB and WR that should be pretty good, but I'm not sure they'll have other skill positions to go with them. I'd still think they can finish above .500, but not more than maybe 5-4/6-3. If they can find a second WR and/or RB, that might go a bit higher.Maybe D5 is a little more wide open than I thought, Baxter is going to be down from this year, 9 of 19 were SRs. I watched 4 of the other teams play this year and 3 are ok but we easily handled by the top team in the district. Maybe it will AGWSR w/ Colo-Nesco in 2nd.
District 1 will be wide open this year. All the contenders from last year were senior heavy. As for the RSM pick, they lose a dozen seniors and will be inexperienced at all skill positions. Now I think they will surprise some this year but would be shocked if they won the district. I think HLP will be the favorite and newcomer to Dist 1 ArWeVa has Schurke back and will be tough.District Champions: Remsen St. Mary's, Don Bosco, Midland, New London, Gladbrook-Reinbeck, Moravia, Fremont-Mills, & Audubon.
D4 might be the most interesting, 3 first year down teams. 5 teams in the running. HLV, IV, Lone Tree, Monte & New London. Hopefully the state gives them good games for the 1 ND game and get 2 Wild Cards and good luck finding somebody to schedule you week 0.
Might change my mind on Moravia, Southeast Warren might be the team to beat in D6. First year down, return QB & RB, not a lot of juniors but 27 returning players is a bunch.
This district will be interesting. Not only because of a proven mix of contenders like HLV, Iowa Valley, Lone Tree & WACO, plus strong 8-man newbies like Montezuma & New London. But with the nine team field, Week #0 games and bye weeks will factor in as well. Surrounding districts may need to play a non-district game outside of Weeks #1-2 against them to make this work.New London will be very good in D4 with a great class of Juniors. Transfer of excellent athlete from Danville to give them 6 strong skill players. A lot of speed and quick scoring ability. Could be a handful for most teams in the District.
Central City played us in Week Zero the last two years because Cedar Valley Christian dropped football after the 2016-17 districts were announced.Baxter won't play Lone Tree? They lose all of those seniors and don't want to lose to Lone Tree?
Who did Lone Tree pick up the last two years for their ninth game?
Funny you should mention that. Our JV did play an 8-man game against the Regina Freshman team last season. Also, I wouldn't worry too much for poor, struggling, Baxter. They didn't share those concerns in their just completed 8-1 campaign, including a season finale when they threw for 12 touchdowns (11 to one player) in their 65-point win over Easton Valley.I can understand you thinking Baxter owes you something, but they won't help you get better. They are kind of struggling it won't help them get more kids out getting stomped by 50. Go for Regina instead for a another fun game.
Yes.Is Tri-County the only team with 8 games currently?
Nice try, but there are too many unknowns to make a confident pick here. Midland has a huge void to fill with the graduation of Austin Smith and the departure of Coach Hack, but LT took some big hits at LB & OL via graduation as well. The Lions return most of their total yardage and scoring from 2017, but it won't make much difference if the Eagles are able to chew up turf like they did in Week #9 last season. No doubt each team will be counting on some lightly tested guys to step into bigger and more vital roles. Midlands track record for 'Next Man In' speaks for itself. LT had a young nucleus step up last fall to replace a large and talented 2017 class, and qualified for the post-season with a 1st year Head Coach themselves. Week #0 is the real wildcard here. Whichever squad comes out firing on more cylinders and is better able to overcome mistakes that are sure to crop up. They're likely to be the victor.hi lonetreehawk who wins the game against Lone tree vs midland on Friday night. and why.
Wouldn't be too surprised if that count is accurate. LT has about 30 out this year. I heard that Coach Hack took the Activities Director job at Solon, but am not certain on that.hey again lonetreehawk I see where midland has 35 players on it's roster is that trune or false. also where did midland head coach go to.
