Valley view

If I understand it correctly VV will start the year off with two good players injured.  Is that true?  They do have some good players.  Glad to see Lipford back on the field from the start of the year.

Nashville will be good again. Not sure if they’ll be as good as the past two years but they will be a contender.

I'm not sure who is hurt for valley view. They are a well coached experienced team. I'm not sure if they have the pitching depth to go through state tournament though.

Other teams in nea that should be good is brookland, pokey, and wynne.

Pokey has Chester who committed to astate plus lots of talent from a very good USssa team growing up.

Brookland is solid with the algee kid committed to astate. Plus the sophomore privet and Hendrix. 1st base and pitcher. Hendrix is probably up to low 80s with control.

Wynne got a good sophomore (peiri)move in pitcher that supposedly hit 88 this past summer but not sure what else they have. They have been solid in 5a the past few years.

I dont know much about highland, Stuttgart, lonoke, batesville, gosnell, or southside?

Last year was supposed to be the rebuilding year. Look for coach Slayton to have them back near the top again.

I heard 3 tonight but won't say the names.  Not sure it is 100 percent correct.  I believe they will hit well but pitching might be a challenge in depth.  Then again they may come out on fire.  You never know.  At least mid season to end season, with no more injuries, they should be strong.

I'm with Rick on Valley View---solid team all the way around..watch Brookland too though. VV and Batesville moved down to play the blended 4A in the East...don't know much about Batesville, but 5A was stacked last year with good teams--some of them moved down, so who knows this early, but VV is my pick.

After talking to some people that's around the programs (mainly in nea) I've heard valley view, Nashville, and Joe t are the teams to beat. Others to keep an eye on are pokey, brookland, and Wynne. I havent heard anything about nwa or swa. I'm sure they have great teams at the top.
