I thought maybe Xenia until I saw their schedule. Beavercreek, @Troy, @Alter, Sidney, @Piqua & then Springfield b4 conference play. Ouch.

GWOC North is tough to figure out a 'suprise' team because of the competitive balance and several really solid football teams. This is the most evenly matched group in the GWOC.

It is difficult to believe in Fairborn just because they have been really bad for several seasons.

I would have to agree that if Centerville goes 7-3 this season they will be a surprise team and have proved their metal.

I don’t think Tipp can be considered a surprise team. Sidney and Fairborn, yes.

I know what you mean...Just meant it was a bit of a surprise to some that they did pretty well for first year in GWOC and I think they will do as well or even better.

Uh-no.... Alter beat them in a tri scrimmage down in Cincy with Taft. Fairborn had 1 play which was a nice pass TD but Alter's run game and passing game scored at will throughout the day.

How can Springfield be a surprise and they made the playoffs last year and even more loaded this year with the addition of a D1 player added to their other D1 talent?

I don't know that Sidney can be called a surprise team either. I think a lot of folks expect them to be the 2nd best team in the North.

There is a HUGE difference between "a lot of folks" and "everyone". Sidney should contend for the #2 spot in the North unless they run into the injury bug again.

Springfield,,,,,,,,,

Plus at Hamilton(toss up). I don't see 6 wins. Will they know how to beat any of those teams I listed? A lot to clean up from a 1-9 team to a 6-4 team let alone a 6+ win team.

All valid points. If they win their division outright that would be a surprise to many I think as Wayne has been tops there for the past few years.

3 games last year were decided by 7 points and one by 10 points. Essentially Fairmont could have gone 5-5 last year. If they turn the corner, I could see winning 6 games this year.

They get three of their first four games at home, with a winnable roadie against Milford to start the year.

Why not? Greenville went from 1-9 to 7-3 and a playoff berth in a year. It certainly is possible, even if it's not likely.

I believe they will be better than their record indicates but they play a daunting schedule. They might go 3-7 or 4-6 and still beat half of the Gwoc teams.

Depends on Fairborn's defense and injuries. They lost some good skill talent to graduation but appear to be a more balanced team overall talent wise this year. Defense did not fair well against Alter. They have two of the better QBs in the GWOC and 2 very good running backs with a bigger O-Line this year. They lost to Northmont 28-7 in their jamboree but played without 6 defensive starters and without their 1st, 2nd and 3rd string running backs and an O-Lineman. Had to put a freshman at running back to play the game. If all starters had been available I think Fairborn would have held their own at Northmont.
