As a coda to the team-by-team previews, links to all 33 of those articles are presented below, with a twist: I've listed the teams in my predicted order of finish for each district. Note that all of the links are premium content hosted over at our subscribers-only VIP Board. Enjoy.
Quick Take: Varina, Hanover, and Highland Springs are all Top Ten teams. Varina has a slight edge over the other two, but Hanover's experience and Highland Springs' defense will both be factors. Lee-Davis and Atlee should be in the D-5 playoff mix again. Glen Allen and Henrico will both be decent. The Capital is probably the deepest of the four districts, and should rack up a lot of power points in out-of-district play.
Quick Take: Another district with three possible title contenders, Dale and Meadowbrook will need to win the crown to make the playoffs, but D-5 Dinwiddie will be a regional title contender even with three or four regular-season losses. Matoaca is young but solid. Prince George, Hopewell, and Petersburg will jockey for position in the middle-to-lower tier of the Central. Colonial Heights will struggle to compete against most of the district.
Quick Take: This is very likely a one-horse race, as Hermitage will be a prohibitive favorite. Deep Run and Godwin should be neck-and-neck for the second spot, just as they were a year ago. Both should have good teams that finish with winning records. John Marshall is right behind those two, and will be one of the contenders for a D-5 playoff spot. Freeman should be improved this season, while PH, Tucker, and a resurgent Thomas Jefferson team will battle it out in the lower rungs of the Colonial.
Quick Take: I'll continue to pick the Skyhawks until someone keeps them from taking the district title, but Manchester should have one of its best teams ever this year. Cosby should also be quite good, but will be hard-pressed to match last year's 9-1 record. Clover Hill is in a major rebuilding cycle, but still has a shot to emerge as the next-best team after the top three. The Cavs will battle Midlothian, James River, and Monacan for position in the second tier of the Dominion. Wythe and Huguenot will round out the district.
