abbatt Posted August 7, 2018 Report Share Posted August 7, 2018 Here are my predictions...... ESL at Detroit King........there will certainly be lots of talent, size and athletes on display....these 2 teams are almost mirror images of each other.There hasn`t been a lot of chatter about ESL so far.... I can`t find any info on a full roster. Because it`s at King..I will go with them....38-33. Loyola Academy at Rockford, Mi........I feel LA will win..but it`s going to be a tough game. Rockford has some big OF lineman and they are pretty decent. LA beat Bishop Amat last year with 7 starters out. This year they have avoided the injuries and should be at full strength.......LA 28...Rockford..17 Naperville Central at Louisville Trinity........This may be a blow-out........NC has a very good QB and some good offensive weapons but their D will really be stretched and challenged by Trinity`s speed. LT 42 NC 21 Lutheran north at Nazarath Academy.........It seems that most people are focused on Trinity Catholic..but LN beat them 48-46 last year in the play-offs. They are a loaded team like TC...but they haven`t faced anyone like Nazarath Academy. This is a big ,strong very well coached team with depth,size and about 10-12 Div1 prospects as well. Naz wins 45-20. Trinity Catholic at ESL. ...well..if TC upsets CC ...it`s not going to happen !!!! ESL should win...but I feel that the loser of this game will be starting the season 0-2. ESL wins 41-28 Edwardsville at CBC...last year EDsviille lost at home 40-19 ..even though they were up at the half. I see a similar score...This CBC team has a chance to make some noise this year Nationally if they can upset St.Johns. CBC 42 ESDville 20 Chicago Phillips at Pickerington Central Oh.......This is not a good game for Phillips because it`s their season opener and it will be PC`s 3rd game. I think they will represent themselves well...but this is the defending large school champ from Ohio playing at home. If this game was at Gately stadium on the South side of Chicago...I would give Phillips a chance..but it`s not. PC 43...Phillips 27 ESL at Massilon Washington OH........Massilon is getting a lot of chatter on the Ohio boards.....they return a lot of starters...ESL is 0-3 against Ohio...after this it will be 0-4. MW 38 ESL 21 This game isn`t listed but here goes......Trotwood-Madison, Oh is also a defending OH champ and it`s going to be a train-wreck for Simeon. minimum 42-6 loss ,maybe worse. Scrimmages aren`t allowed in Illinois.....so the first game is the scrimmage. By season`s end the top teams in Illinois are good enough to hang with most states except the top ones. 1 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
