Wouldn't put too much stock into 7 on 7s. It's basically there to gel the receivers with the QB, route tree acclimation and for the QB to work on timing, etc. It is fun to watch and can give you an idea on skill position talent.

True that Ollis will make a difference, but I question if the talent is there. They lost storm wheeler and James wingo. Dillon Overholt is a stellar athlete, but will he be enough to carry the team to success? Polk's jv teams have been fairly lackluster the last few years. And welcome to our world. We had to play hendo then y'all back to back the last few years.

In regards to Mountain Heritage, the offense should be fine, but how is the defense going to hold up this season? You lost a few of those good secondary players. Other than special teams (which Joey has never emphasized) I think the defense might be your weakness this year.

with me being a ex-player that graduated i can concur that polk will be a much better contender this year than the past two years. polk only graduated 8 seniors and only like 5 of them started. yeah jaymes was a good rb/fb but he can be replaced they have a rising junior thats just as talented.Wheeler only played 2 full games the whole season. so he was not a factor. aside from the fact jaymes is gone the backfield is still the same backfield. the line is only replacing a tackle so they aint really nothing changingfor the offense. the defense is still the same inside the box except the slb graduated. so.. pretty much all familar faces just a better attitude going into the season.

Good to know. I want the conference to be equally strong top to bottom. How is the o line looking? I know that was probably the biggest weakness last season. Our linebackers and ends kept pressure on Overholt the whole game last year.

Defensive backs were not very strong either last year. They may have some help coming from JVs. A team that throws the ball a lot would definitely give last years secondary a hard time, but we had our issues at times as well.

I was at the 7 on 7 at Erwin. The teams that really stood out were Hendo, Roberson, Erwin, Burns, and Polk. Heritage looked very solid. Mitchell looked decent but on the slow side compared to some of the teams mentioned above. Madison looked really bad. Polk looked very good at the end but they were playing like it was a late season conference game and going all out. I really think they will surprise some people in the conference.

The o line had only two seniors on there. Only one started the whole season. So all Polk ha's to do is replace one on the o line and move a person here and there. They are going to be a little bit smaller but even more nasty than last year. Believe that.

Just my 2 cents worth but I think losing Rhoadarmer will hurt Madison. At least they hired quickly and from within.

Almost August! I just want to give praise to our mountaineers. The players give back to the community more than they take and we have some good kids up here. Jesse Pitman and Brody Smith were my son's swimming instructors this summer, and have him as pumped about football as I am. They put in the hard work all summer, in the weight room, at camps and challenges, and in the community. My hats off to you boys, give em hell!

Heard from a couple of people a few weeks ago, including one of Heritages coaches that numbers are pretty thin this year, haven't got an update yet as to why, but it was two weeks ago so maybe more kids will show up this week

Unusual at Heritage but seems to be a trend everywhere.
