With the football season drawing to a close in a couple of weeks I first want to wish those still playing, the very best. Those of us who's teams are done are already looking to next season with anticipation. Next years playoffs will look different as several traditional teams are moving up to 2A and we will have a few new faces dropping down to join the party.
In the 1A West you will still have Murphy and Mitchell at the top. They both return some key pieces but who else can step up and shake things up in the 1A West? Will Robbinsville be back at the top? What will MIC be like? (Don't turn this into a MIC thread, please)
In the 1AA West you will have East Surry who returns basically their whole team, Whiteville who was young and returns a ton, Mt. Airy who returns a lot of key pieces, East Wilkes, Swain and the addition of North Rowan who is athletic. Does the SPC have any team that key cause some noise next season? Does the YVC have a team who can be the spoiler?
Who is everyone's picks as the very early favorite based on what they have returning next season in the 1A and 1AA West?
Who will step up and give Plymoth and Tarboro a run for their money in the East? Eastern guys help me out.
