Alright, it's getting close. What do you think? Who is going to contend? What players are out there that we should watch for? I admittedly know more about the East than anywhere else, so please chime in with your thoughts.....I'd like to know what you think?
5A- Rigby is going to be a contender again. The coaches there have said that this group may be even better than last year. Tiger Adolpho leads this team. The Freeman kid is an amazing receiver. Defensively, their Middle Linebacker might be better than the one last year. Look out for Rocky! They are building a program for the long term. Thunder Ridge has lots of dudes, watch out for Teo Johnson...he will be electric!...Can Thunder put it all together? Highland is interesting now that the boundary situation is in full effect in Poky, Can Gino Mariani get his kids performing at a high level with Rigby and Thunder on the rise?...QB has looked good in 7 on 7....Mason Fullmer kid is a beast.
4A- Bishop Kelly had a lot of success at the JV level last year, beating most of the juggernauts in the Treasure Valley. I believe that BK will be back this year to being a serious contender. My friend from over there thinks their JV could have beaten their Varsity last year. Breannan will have them ready.
Skyline- lost a lot of Seniors to graduation on the Defensive side of the ball. They have some pretty powerful offensive youngsters. Kenyon Sadiq will be almost un-guardable as a wideout. Abrahn Silverio will get the majority of the carries. He is a downhill runner with break-away speed. Watch out for Caden Taggart. He will man the slot and is very explosive and is a matchup nightmare due to his speed and shiftiness. He should have a breakout year.
Emmett returns their QB in Caden Young. He was a All-State player last year.
Poky could make some noise and also Sandpoint was young last year. Both could be contenders.
3A- I think you have to look at two schools, Homedale and Sugar. Could they back in the championship again?....I think so.
Homedale- the Kinchloe kid is an absolute beast and will carry this team far. I heard that the qb is back also.
Sugar- will just reload. They have an excellent strength and conditioning coach and they will have their boys ready to play. They will be fun to follow.
2A-1A: I don't know much about, please comment and let us know who are the predicted contenders.
Enjoy! I can't wait!
