2017 UIL Preseason Rankings -- for real

Postby granger » Thu Jul 13, 2017 1:29 pm

I decided since they are already done, I should go ahead and post them... I usually do not do this until August, but figured, why not?

Of course I will drag this out a bit, so today we go with the #1 preseason teams in both divisions.

One may be a surprise to some. The other, not so much.....

Division 1
1. Union Hill

Division 2
1. Richland Springs

Runningback from Union Hill was tough last year. Will be tougher this year.

Probably. But I have seen the desire to excel in sports fade as some students age. Just sayin.
Statement should read "Should be" tougher. Not necessarily "Will be" tougher.

In my 18 years of coaching, for every kid whose desire fades, there are 10 that the desire grows. This is a useless post just trying to be negative about a high school kid. You should be ashamed.

That a pretty negative outlook to have on a kid. Especially one you've probably never met. Let's leave the analysis to the kid's coach. The desire in the kids has a lot to do with their coaching staff and they seem like a good group over at Union Hill.

Sorry you saw it that way. It wasn't directed at any kid. It was to Savoy's statement. I try to analyze everything that I read.

Or, you can just keep your negative $.02 to yourself and wish the kid well.

Not even August yet and people are already getting "testy". Should be a good year. Aye?

All I was saying is i seen this kid play play year and he was a stud. I just see him getting better. That kind of player only gets more hungry, not less.

The west is always "testy" if they don't get their way every year.

I don't think Johnny South is from the west. He is making assumptions towards a kid in the east.

Division 1

Division 2

Might be Union Hill's last year in Six-man. Could go out with a bang.

Last year's class sizes according to TEA
11 28 - this years 12
10 36 - this years 11
9 25 - this years 10
8 30 - this years 9
7 25 - this years 8
6 29 - this years 7

So 9-12 they have 119 students
8-11 116 students
7-10 109 students
9-10 2X 110 Students

Have to get some kids to transfers out or be absent on count day to stay 1A.
