Whatever it is you can’t get it in Rusk, Texas. We might have one kid in whole HS that size and she doesn’t play sports. 

The bigger challenge will be scoring more than 7 vs that D.  💪

This is something to keep an eye on: In 2009 Chapel Hill had a new coach, Thomas Sitton. They finished the season 5-5 and 4th place in their district. The winner of their district was Gilmer who

That's a distant #1 too. It's a shame they don't have just a ranking for the entirety of 4A.

I think I would have WOS, PG, Celina and CS all ahead of Wimberly. And I might also have Celina and CS Ahead of PG.

So who will Carthage beat this year in Arlington for their annual state championship? 

 

China Spring too low. I'm interested in how Bellville does this season.

Surratt’s  philosophy is to play one game at a time; Kind of the “Don’t count you chickens” approach. Every team wants to beat Carthage & a few have, but it won’t be a Cake Walk for anyone.

I'm pretty sure that's the philosophy of every HS football coach in this state if you ask them.

 

I'm thinking just like the person above that it'll be another all East Tx matchup again, unless Celina throws a wrench in the plans.

Celina brought back a ton, added a few really nice looking pieces, and have some really talented youngsters coming up too. And the QB position isn’t in flux going into this year, which will be amazing. Graham will be a touch down this year, but Aubrey should be really good again. But I think Region I is Celina’s to lose. I’d be shocked if it’s not the Bobcats vs the Buckeyes in the semifinals come December.

We’ll get to find out how legitimate Celina is right away. They play the Div. I No. 3, No. 7 and No. 1 (Melissa, Paris, Argyle, respectively) right out of the gate.

These rankings look about right though. Carthage is the easiest No. 1 in the history of rankings lol. Gilmer also a pretty unquestionable No. 2 in my opinion. After that, I’d probably have WOS and Wimberley a little lower. I’d probably have China Spring and Sinton a touch higher. The Pirates were young and bring back everybody, so they’ll make noise in Region IV. I probably would have Navarro in the top 10, honestly. They had a decent group a year ago and bring back everybody. A couple other teams probably have legit arguments for being top 10, and will likely break in after a week or two.

Did Salado lose a lot to graduation?  A little surprised to not see them in there.  I figured they'd be a shoe in for top 5.  Even though the score in our game against them last year was 35-7, I think they played us closer than anyone else did.  Guess it really doesn't matter, it's just pre-season rankings and anything could happen and they may wind up in there eventually.

I would have Rusk, Jasper or Center at 10 but I know they have to have representation from all geographic areas that sells magazines.

Center might not be as good without Horace and a new coaching staff settling in but they have plenty of talent. Jasper lost those monster O-linemen but they will be good again. Rusk will surprise a few people. They have a chance to be one of the better teams in 4A D2.

Looks about right, except PG in there at 5. They return 4 starters total if I heard correctly? They may get there in the end, and preseason polls always work themselves out, but that seems high for what they have returning. Celina is top 5 for sure.

No one will be able to say Celina isnt battle tested, that’s for sure! And you’ll know exactly what they have. I know one of those games for sure that I’d love to see Celina put it on the opposition.

New QB from Carthage has a CANNON! Seen him throw. Hold Carthage under 45 a game and you've done something.

I can’t wait 👌🏻

The starters gave up an average of 4.5 points a game. I have feeling they are going to be a lot better.

They certainly be a different team with #40 not being there.

They had a really good 9th grade team, even without the RB who was on varsity.  I would imagine several of them, now sophs, will get a lot of playing time on varsity. 
For several years now they have just reloaded, just a notch below Carthage - who has to try to reload most of their blockers this fall.
