Our PreSeason Top 5 and several clubs and players to watch

1A Boys State Pairings

Football season has yet to crown a single state champion but winter sports practices have already begun and we’ve begun preparations for the upcoming basketball season.  Over the next several days, we will feature different classifications and name our pre-season top five clubs and several others who could make a push for a state tournament.  Our first basketball PrepsCast looks at the 1A boys division and who we think are the best five clubs to open the season.

This is the corrected version that takes Heritage Christian out of our top five as the Eagles will move up to Class 2A this year.

  1. Listened to your 1A boys basketball preview. Per Max Preps and the 2018-2019 CHSAA basketball bulletin, Heritage Christian is now a 2A team. I assume that’s still correct? Also, Dominic Puchino is no longer at Longmont Christian. He’s now attending/playing for Roosevelt HS (4A in Windsor). Longmont Christian is the only 1A team playing in the 2A/1A Mile High League!

  2. I’ll be listening all season long into your 1A talk for sure. I noticed no mention of ECA now at 1A from 2A. I like the sleeper status. Keep up the good work we’ll catch up in the post season.

    • Yep – I sure missed them on my preview for sure and after winning 17 games last year – should be a factor on the 1A level this year – interested to see how they do against Simla this week – mention that game in our Week One preview.

  3. Hi Kevin, Thank you for all your great work keeping us informed. I have to say that I miss the printed version of your rankings. I prefer to be able to skim an article for the information I need instead of listening to a sometimes lengthy pod-cast. Any chance you can include your script for readers like me?
