Pretty early and lots of teams moving around. Kirtland is #1 right? What happened to the schedule thread? Pretty sure Mogadore and Dalton play early. Other than these 2 teams can NM Springfield challenge for runnerup? Here are my very early preseason guesses. Adjusted 6-29.

1-Kirtland
2-Dalton
3-Mogadore
4-New Middletown Springfield
5-Columbia
6-Black River
7-Toronto
8-Rootstown
9-Mineral Ridge
10-Pymatuning Valley
11-Smithville
12-United
13-Rittman
14-Brookfield
15-Tuslaw
16-LaBrae
17-Richmond Hts
18-Columbiana
19-Jackson-Milton

Kirtland & Dalton square off in Week 1 for the second year in a row, which will be another great game and have the potential for a playoff rematch. As far as a sleeper team, I will be keeping my eye on how Tuslaw fares in its first season under Broc Dial who resigned from Dalton & took over at Tuslaw. Imagine that as a potential first-round playoff matchup…look forward to the season starting here in two months!
 
Massillon was at the annual Pittsburgh 7 on 7 today. Many expected the Tigers to be the best team from Ohio - but that was not the case. Little old D6 Kirtland ended up making it to final game - without their starting QB none the less. The Hornet QB is nursing a slight shoulder injury. The Kirtland Hornets also swept the offensive lineman competition. Kirtland won the weight lifting, weighted sled and tire flip. Matt Kahley won the overall by lifting 185lbs 36 times. The Hornets did not have the girth to win the tug of war and finished second.

Kirtland is going to be tough again this year in D6.
 
For Region 21: Kirtland is the top dog and will be until otherwise.

#2 will be Dalton. They made a run to the Division VII championship game, and have the talent to make a deep run. Gauntlet of a schedule that includes Kirtland and Mogadore, and a huge Week 8 rivalry game against Norwayne.

#3 is Mogadore. Even though the PTC has one less team with the departure of Southeast, the Wildcats still have a tough schedule including Dalton, an improved Field team, Newark Catholic, and potential Division V contender Canton Central Catholic among others.

#4 is Columbia. One of the best small school programs out west. Rounding out the Top 5 is New Middletown Springfield.

Top 3 are correct to me. Will be interested to see the new Dalton coach (throws it more supposedly) with the non conference schedule probably as tough as any in D6, with Kirtland, D4 Marengo Highland, and then Moggy. I would say they will lose week 1 by 3 scores or so, and be in tough games with Highland and Moggy. On this list the things that stand out to me - I would move NMS down, and move Rittman into the top 8 with a lot returning and arguably the best RB in the region now as a senior. Tuslaw will be interesting as well as I could see anywhere from a 3-7 to a 7-3 season.
