I skipped on the opportunity to put before the readers of this blog a football preseason Top 10.
The reason being, pre season high school polls are based solely on how a team performed the year before, and does it have a winning tradition.
Based on that criteria, the Top 5 does not change much from year to year.
Now that teams have played a game here’s what we know:
West Michigan can’t wait for the Sept. 30 match-up between Lowell and East Grand Rapids.
Rockford was controlled from start to finish by Lowell. By week nine the Rams will be a much improved football team.
The Zeeland Schools (East and West) appear to be among the lakeshore’ s finest.
Coopersville got a good win against what is considered a tough football program in Hamilton.
Hudsonville, after a couple of lean years, opened the season at Holt with a good win.
With that said I unveil my first weekly go around at a Top 10:
1/tie. EGR/Lowell – Based on the Pioneers win against Catholic Central, their 35 game winning streak; and Lowell’s stellar performance against Rockford.
3. Grand Rapids Christian
5. Zeeland East
8. Grand Haven
10. West Ottawa
I know what you’re thinking, Rockford and Catholic Central are Top 10 teams. I agree, just not after their week one performances
