League won’t be as strong as 2019 imo. McK and Perry lose great senior classes. Jackson will have to do a total rebuild. I bet 2 out of the 3 miss the playoffs. Leaves the door open for Hoover & Lake. If Hoover’s defense improves they should be the favorite. Green was very young and should get a few more wins in 2020. Glenoak will struggle.
 
McK brings a lot of talent back from last year an could run the table , with the size they bring back most of the line will be Jr class with a full season under there belt , good hands @ the skilled Poisson, may move Powell to RB an Def End

The Panthers will return a nice core of players from this past years playoff team. QB Hayden Vinas, his brother Dominic at LB/RB, Devonte Armstrong DB/WB, Jovoni Lapanja DB/WR, Cayman Williams OLB, Cam Hall DB/RB, Cam Gill RB/DB, Kenny Anderson LB, Joshua Lemon RB/LB, Logan Shephard LB/TE, Anthony Jones DL/OL, Dylan Smith OL/DL, Anthony Brumbaugh OL/DL.
Others To watch: Luke Laubacher QB/DB, Cam Nickson DL/RB and Vinny Hildebrand OL/DL.
Incoming sophomores to watch: DeAndre Church RB/LB, JaQuae Pearson OL/DL, Briar Recktenwalt DL/OL

To early for me to make predictions, but I feel they’ll be in the hunt for the FLC. Hopefully the season starts and then I can give a better outlook once I see the scrimmages.

Last year, I listed Jackson as my dark horse, but this coming year, I think the FED will be closely bunched. My early season feel is that McKinley will win the league, I also think Hoover will be a playoff team. The school that has me stymied is Glenoak, they have way too big of a student draw to be this bad. Perry will be strong like usual, and Lake always gives you a game. Green has played youth the past few years, they might rise up in the standings this coming season.

Last year as a sophomore Powell was a beast at RB.He had the size,speed,and power to be all-county.

He would have started on most teams in the county.There will be little drop off from last years RB.

McKinley had the best RB in the State last year or Powell would have run wild.

Wow Yappi himself, making an appearance on Stark County hs football, how cool is that? Is this one supposed to be different than the others? Just curious. Maybe we can convince you to start another one. Or not, just an idea.

Btw agreed CantonKid. I'll have to see his speed first but Powell may have the higher ceiling. Strength-wise the kid is freak, and pretty much excels at every sport he partakes in from track, wrestling, to football (state honors on D as a soph). Can't wait to see what he does at RB - I don't think you'll miss a beat in the backfield w/ Wesley coming back too.

Repeat FL champs, as usual.

The thought process from that town is inherently flawed, facts don't matter.
They won or shared the last 3 and next year I believe will again. Not that there couldn't a co-champ again but they are by far the safest bet. Jmo but feel free to disagree. Have to give Perry their due also with their 3 in that recent stretch from 15-17.

As for historically, it was posted earlier a commanding 15 game lead in W-L record over closest competition, and won or shared > half the league titles since joining. I expect it to only continue, as usual. Ditto vs. Jackson but that goes w/out saying.

That's better reasoning. Winning or sharing half the league titles while impressive is a little different than FL champs as usual. And yes Mck has Jackson's number in football.

What are the expectations for Lake? I know they had high hopes for last year. They've gone 6-4 four out of the last five years. Will they turn the corner in 2020? Who's coming back for the Blue Streaks?

Expectations this year in Lake are high. They return an abundance of guys. Last years team was made up of a ton of juniors and some sophomores. They lose a few guys in the trenches, but that’s really about it if I’m not mistaken. Anything less than 7-3 would be a disappointment.

FED has some outstanding OOC games schedule for this year, including games against:

Warren Harding, Homewood-Flossmoor, Akron East, Garfield Heights, Brecksville, Avon Lake, Cleveland Heights, Boardman, Mayfield, Medina and Fitch

Louisville is like an associated member since everyone in the league plays them this coming year with the exception of Jackson and MCK
