    I don't think it (losing starters) will make too much of a difference. The youngins played a lot last year. Remember Shoffner was even being taken out after the half?
    I think at least half of the easier conference games are gone, those teams going to another conference. I'm just hoping the work ethic continues. The youngins got some experience.

    I think Middle Creek will win in a close one. I love the way Rocky Mount plays Football, fast and physical. I have a lot of respect for their players and coaches. This game will probably go down to the wire and whichever team plays the best defensively will probably win. Am I looking forward to this game? Well the game will be played in 61 days 2 hours and 12 minutes at the time of this post......if that answers the question.

    Middle creek starts off the year with Rocky Mount I believe... both teams have lost a lot of seniors from the past year... Rocky Mount is 0-2 against them in the past two years but ended up going to back-2-back state championships ofcourse in 2015 wining in overtime and losing last year... any thoughts on who might win this years matchup??

    They have some excellent receivers, Mitchell, Martin, Rider and always rotate 8 to 10 different ones throughout the game so they have more experience there than you might think. The RB position is solid with three year starter Jones who is an outstanding runner and receiver. The QB is big and throws and runs the ball well. He knows how to run the offense efficiently and gets the ball where it needs to be. When he runs, he is deceptively quick and runs over people. The O line will be the question mark with the starting center returning and a guard who started 3/4ths of the year, everyone else will be new. The D line will be new except for Richardson who should have a big year. The two returning inside LBs are outstanding Cheyunski and Maya and the DB's Martin and Herring should have a big year. I have MC in my preseason WAKE County top 5. Those teams are WF, Heritage, MC, Sanderson, and Garner. Middle Creek will have another successful season.

    How will Middle Creek be this year? Losing 16 starters. 8 on offense and 8 on defense.
