Default 2018 1A East:Contenders or Pretenders?
So, looking ahead to the 2018 season, how do you all feel it falls in terms of contenders and pretenders? Hereís my thoughts:

Contenders
1) Pikeville
2) Raceland
3) Hazard
4) Paintsville
5) Williamsburg

BIG GAP

Pretenders
6) Nicholas County
7) Pineville
8) Lynn Camp
9) Phelps
10) Harlan

This is about how is see the EAST side in terms of where they are right now with the current personnel that we know to be coming back, and their chances of getting to Kroger Field.

Thoughts?

You have Pineville too high and Lynn Camp too low.

Until Williamsburg learns how to stop the run, they are a pretender.

I agree with HCS but it's not a large discrepancy. Just switch #7 and #8 and that would be better, IMO.

Top 4 are all you need to see. It will be decided between them. One of them gets Beechwood in Lexington.

I agree with Pikeville, honestly they should be the the preseason number 1 in single A. Only losing two kids on a state semi-finalist, just wow!

Raceland graduates a lot from what I read on this site and the gap between them and Pikeville was non-existent this year. A game winning field goal is as even as it gets.

Hazard I believe loses a lot as well.

Paintsville should have a really good group of freshman that will become sophomores that transferred from Floyd county to start this year. Would have to say they are rebuilding this year but will be good.

Williamsburg tends to be good every three or four years. Imagine they will be strong but the gap to Pikeville will be big.

Honestly... everyone but Pikeville is a pretender right now in my eyes. Not that we haven't heard this before, but Pikeville and Beechwood should be on a collision course.

Which direction on 23 is Ole St. Nick transporting? North up 23 or South down 23? Sounds like an interesting discussion point for the off season. A new thread called "Name that Ram".

Looks right to me. I would have put them in the same order. Also agree with bball fan, Pikeville will lead the pack in 2018 all the way to Kroger field. When a football team returns everyone with that much experience except for one starter, along with great coaching, then the odds are more than great. A contender for sure.

I hate to bring up painful memories, but don’t forget that Williamsburg had back-to-back championship appearances in ‘13 and ‘14. Not that long ago.

If Williamsburg can stay healthy they will be a dangerous team.. Lynn Camp will be solId too. But both will need there defense to step up.

Beechwood may end up in 2A on the next realignment, they are not even remotely close to being a 3A school.

Hate to disagree RAMDAD50. It took only one team in the East to beat those Tigers in 2015.

Another team in the east and that’s Paris. Don’t sleep on them. They return some talent.

i believe if Hazard was healthy they would’ve had a great chance to be the team that came out of the east but I think that Beechwood still wins! They were a very good team.They converted 15 out of 18 this downs, and I’m pretty sure most of them were five yards or less! They played a very good game.Very well coached.Nobody from the east had anything for them this year!
