Pre preseason Sweet 16

Wondering who you all think should be in our first poll. Remember, we rank all classes in one poll using strength of class, strength of schedule. We don't consider how teams would do against each other unless they actually play, so no "I'm ranking Freedom ahead of Shelby because they would just smoke the Golden Lions."

We'll be doing the Sweet 16 shortly but I wanted to see what you guys thought.

The WEST ROWAN FALCONS will be stong again this year. They are ranked #1 in the state in the 3A poll and have the states top running back and one of the states top defensive ends returning. Could be a scary undefeated season in Mt. Ulla.

Charlotte Christian will be able to play with and beat anyone. I would put alot of stock in coaching and preparation as well as talent. The D-1 college coaches like Davis, Cutcliffe and Tressell seem to think pretty highly of the team irregardless of what league they are in, not to mention 3-4 other players who have been or will be offered.

Butler would beat Christian or the Chrissies 56-6. Nuff said.
