You know I hear stories like this all the time but unfortunatly if you don't have boys up front blocking, he isn't going any where.
One quarterback that was very impressive was that Bacon (sp) kid from Brown Deer. I thought he did a real good job all year. I think he maybe one of the better quarterbacks if not the best this coming season.
It will also be very interesting to see what the power houses bring back. Both Ike and G'dale dumped their guts last season so we will see if they can replace the talent they lost.
I think between the two, G'dale took the biggest hit losing the heart of their receiving corp and their very talented quarterback. The only good thing is that they are bringing back just about their whole defense which is what you need to win championships.
Ike will be the opposite. They are bring back more of their key offensive people but their defense took a pretty good hit. As for the rest of the teams, they have a lot to prove. Whitnall showed signs of life so it will be interesting to see if they can keep it going. Their lower level teams did a pretty nice job last year.
Greenfield needs a major attitude adjustment to turn their program around. It will take a major effort to do that for they have been struggling for quite a while now.
Cudahy has HUGE problems. What ever happened to them? They used to always be a force. There is another program that needs an attitude adjustment.
NB West seems to hold their own every year so we'll see what they have to offer.
Tosa had major problems. Hopefully the newer coaching staff can right the ship. If I were them, I would think about changing their offense. An option offense is only as good as your quarterback and your running backs. If they are just average, it isn't going to work.
St. Thomas More is just a victim of numbers. They would have to get really lucky in hooking up with a solid bunch of talent with the numbers they have.
St Francis is always tough. Every year they have nice size and will punch you in the mouth. Their biggest probem every year is depth.
In the end, I think it will be the same teams battling it out. Greendale and Ike. If I was a betting man, I would have to lean towards G'dale only becasue of their past history and that stinking spread offense they run. Their coaches seem to have that down to a fine art year after year.
Of course anything can change. "That's why they play the game!"
