Most years MCC can consistently compete with D5 & D6 teams. Some years, even a couple of D4 playoff team.justaguefan wrote:I was estimating 7-8. That should do MCC pretty good. Now the question is do they have the team to compete in D6 (assuming they qualify first).FridayFootball wrote:That would mean they had a great turnout. If that's the case, I would say they got about 15-20 kids from WMC. That's what they'll need if they have any hope in competing in D6, should they make the playoffs.BIGREDS89 wrote: Im not sure how many WMC kids they had. Looked to be 40-45 the two nights I saw them working out with Fruitport.
Not necessarily overlooking them. I agree they'll be more athletic than anyone and have enough talent to compete for the top of the WMC, I just feel like their talent doesn't get utilized like it should. They were athletic and talented last year and couldn't do much with it. If their coach shows me they know how to use the players they have, then I might take them more seriously.justaguefan wrote:I like you assessment but I wouldn't overlook North Muskegon. They return a ton as well and should also factor into the conference race. More so than Ravenna. The Norse will be the most athletic team in the league and have a team that could make a decent run in D7.eagleCHAMP05 wrote: Montague will be very good again. Lost some good kids but had a lot of underclassmen playing serious minutes last year. Should be the favorite to win the WMC again.
Oakridge lost very little and has had some great teams at the JV level the last couple years so they should see some talent added onto returning players. Should be in the top group of the WMC and hopefully give Montague a little better competition for the league crown.
Ravenna should be improved. They hired the OC from Holland West Ottawa who will bring a brand new look to the Bulldogs that has never been seen before as he's known for running an effective, up-tempo spread offense.
Not sure about the rest of the conference. NM and Whitehall will be battling with Ravenna and could sneak into that top group to contend for the conference.
Hart, Shelby, and Mason County Central will probably be battling it out to stay out of the basement.
Good question it is probably a typo.8 man football rocks wrote: According to your Calpreps link, the team lost all 5 OL plus the QB so how can they return 6 offensive starters?
They lost a good amount. However they are probably still the tram to beat in D8.justaguefan wrote: Ottawa Lake Whiteford team preview
