He's definitely working on conditioning. You're going to see a completely different offense. The offensive coordinators favorite offense is uptempo/spread with a dual threat QB. That's actually what offensive package Mike has brought to smackover. Hitting the weight room more often and trying to get the kids to put on more muscle. Our health and medicine coach has a diet plan laid out for them as well. I cannot wait for the season to begin.

Health and medicine coach? How many 3a schools have a coach for that?

Make it mandatory they aren't quitters before you make them run track.

I just think it will be better for both programs. A quitter is going to quit on you at some point anyway don't want it to be in the 4th quarter when the game is on the line.

Yeah, a guy has posted assumptions of what the cycle will be based off the numbers the schools are reporting.

The numbers I saw has JC staying in for this cycle and the next cycle.

Fordyce and Gurdon dropping down.

Rivercrest to 4A.

Rison and CHG back to 3A. Which will have 11 teams in our conference. Unless they geographically move fouke to 3a-5. (Where they should be.)

Only way to do that would be to move Prescott down to 3A-5.

Because fordyce is dropping down... Rison and CHG would come up.

We lose Fouke and GC. That would leave 8 in the conference.

The numbers I saw has JC staying in for this cycle and the next cycle........

Junction's full student count for 9-11 grade average should be somewhere around 173.33.   

2014-2015    58  66  52  58.67
2015-2016    65  52  61  59.33
2016-2017    50  62  54  55.33
                                173.33

Those numbers come from here:  https://adedata.arkansas.gov/statewide/Schools/EnrollmentByGrade.aspx?year=27&search=junction%20city&pagesize=10

Since 2014-2015, the ADE numbers have both the AR and LA kids in the publicly available chart.  For 2013-2014 and before, the ADE made available a second file of the LA kids to the AAA that would have been added to primary file so all kids would be counted for athletic classification.  Since the ADE patched their software for 2014-2015 and forward, there is no need to add the two files together and if the files are added together now, the LA kids would be counted twice.

Now where a count of 170 to 176 or so would put a school, I couldn't tell you.
