They certainly could. But for me, couldn't put a 0-0 team at the top.
I'm not completely buying into Huntley Project yet. Yes, beating Malta is always nice. But I have my concerns about them, too.
Probably my favorite story this football season comes out of Huntley. What that Koni Dole kid has been able to do blows my mind.
Probably?? Come on! That's easily the best high school sports story this state has seen in a long time. Phenomenal kid. Incredible story.
A win at Red Lodge this week will help, so would a win against Colstrip the following week. But if they beat Baker on September 27, then I'll buy Huntley Project as a top three team.
Hey, 1B Fan, good to see you! Remember you from the good ole days on the GPS blog.
I haven't seen Dillon or Laurel play yet, but Dillon made a pretty loud statement last weekend. The Beavers still have some really talented players, so I think they'll come to this side of the state and get the W.
You bring any of your friends to the chat? Bleeds, Blue by You, any of those guys?
Haven't seen Dillon yet either but a win on the road at Polson is a huge start to their season. Not like it gets easier either. At Laurel before Billings Central at home.
What does Polson have this year, AJ? I saw the coaches liked them in your guys' preseason polls.
True, but preseason polls are often swayed by past seasons. Polson is largely inexperienced. Only 4 starters back on offense and 3 on defense. They were hit very hard by graduation.
They'll see their bit of struggles early on but you can't count out a Coach Wilson led program up there.
Central is kind of re-tooling this year. They had a bunch of seniors on last year's team, and they're pretty young this year. That being said, Holden Ryan (he scored four TDs against Belgrade but fumbled a couple tiems) is a stud. He's probably a D-I player. And they're really athletic.
So Polson is rebuilding, huh? What do you know about Columbia Falls and Whitefish?
I've heard that, too, 1B Fan. Time will tell I suppose. I was surprised by the Townsend-Florence score.
And, yeah, that's a real bummer that game was canceled. Long drive to not play.
Whitefish looks much the same as last year, but with experience. QB Luke May was a stud last year as a freshman and he's back.
I don't know a ton about CFalls yet. Just what I've heard and seen in the polls
I think Bozeman has a good shot at that title, especially in AA. Two big wins and dealing with some injuries along the way.
Most impressive team after two weeks, huh? Hard to say, AA is the only class where every team has played two games. I think Glacier has been most impressive there.
We're just about to get started with the prep football chat. We have AJ Mazzolini of the Missoulian and Slim Kimmel of the Billings Gazette on hand to discuss the season so far. If you have questions, fire them in!
