PA has way too much to replace and way too many ????’s to place them in the Top 10 Preseason poll

I don't have any first hand knowledge like I used to but considering that KK has won at least 9 game every year since 2001 I think it may be safe to predict a top ten finish. ;)

How high depends on how quickly the new starters develop but historically they are well prepared from their Jr high and grade school reps. I remember fans hanging over the railing and crying at the spring game after the 2008 state championship team graduated and the ranks seemed to be depleted but that 2009 team with a lot of weaknesses still won 9 games and went to the semis

Offense--that broke several state and national records
QB- 3 year starter- led the nation in passing yards
Losing 3 of the starting WRs with 2 being #1, #2 in the state  in 5A- close to 3000 receiving yards and 40 TDs
3 OL- 2 are going D1

Defense
Losing all 4 starting LBs
Losing 2 of 3 DL
Losing 1 DB

Just my opinion...going to be tough for PA next year, I see them being #3 in the Central.

1.  PA - I’m not at all sure PA is the best, but they deserve to be No. 1 until a 5A team beats them.

2.  Morrilton- my favorite to win it all.

3.  Texarkana- I look for a good year from them.

4.  LRCA - they return a lot of talent.

5.  Batesville-  Wynne loses a lot, so I expect Batesville to be best in the East.

A couple of thoughts on these rankings and LRCA:

-  I agree with some others on here regarding PA.  Until someone beats them, they should be/stay #1

-  All high schools get hit by and have to deal with graduation.  LRCA loses three all-State players on offense (RB/QB/WR), that’s a ton of production that must be replaced.

-  LRCA defense.  The defense that played a key role in beating McClellan - then the Warriors can be a top 5 team.  The defense on the field against PA/Wynne?  That team will struggle to make top ten.

1.   Pulaski Academy
2.   LR Christian
3.   Morrilton
4.   Texarkana
5.   Batesville
