I've been closely following this conference for about 30 years and the one constant has always been expect the unexpected.
Newcomer East Forsyth will be very tough and while they have some question marks due to inexperience, they're every bit as athletic and well coached as the Titans.
Davie returns a very strong core group from last year's conference title winning team, and while they don't have QB Chris Reynolds coming back, they do have senior WR Cooper Wall who's among the better receivers in the state. They also return a duo of running backs and a very capaible LB (Hendrix).
Reagan in my opinion may have been the state's best 3-8 4A team. They return an experienced sophomore QB and they're going to be a team to be reckoned with.
Glenn does have an exceptional QB in Strephon Brown but they'll have to replace a few good receivers. They'll also have to overcome losing an exceptional OC in Kevin Wallace who's now at West Forsyth.
I think R.J. Reynolds will be much improved but I'm not sure if they've got enough to finish in the top-3.
If I were to pick the conference today I'd go....

I think Glenn will be in the running. Lost a little bit at WR but with an exception QB he might make up for some of those loses. On defense they were really young last year. So most of those freshman and sophomores should have another year under their belt. West is loaded with maybe there offensive line as the only weak spot. East lost a ton of talent so it will be interesting to see how they fare when they go against some of the tougher teams. Not sure how much Davie lost beyond their QB but they was a really solid team. Reynolds returns some dynamic play makers on offense from last year I believe.
