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.

You are correct, but i think for some the desire grows.

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.

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.
