Both teams definitely lost some important players from the previous seasons, but I look for both to reload this year. There may be some guys having to go both ways this year, or at least more than in the past, but definitely there should be some lineman and skilled players that can step up and get the job done. Heritage should get some defensive back help from a JV squad that is coming off 32 straight wins and were not tested very much at all last year. I think we will be even faster on defense possibly. Mitchell has already moved most of their young guys up that could help next year, so they have a year under their belt at the varsity level.
Coming into the game healthy will be a top priority for either team, but Mitchell should have a very good chance of coming into this game not being pushed except for the Erwin week 1. After that they have a pretty easy schedule until RS Central.
Heritage on the other hand will be starting out with a brutal Brevard, Erwin and road trip to Salisbury. If they can get through these games at 2-1 or 3-0 then they they should go into Hendersonville for week 6 for a definite battle in good shape.
