It’s 78 days until kickoff, which means the anticipation is at a whisper, not a scream.

Still, it’s never too early (I mean, it is, but this is fun nonetheless) to construct a “Way Too Early” look at how our first team All-Area squad could look after this upcoming season. Keep in mind, I’m only considering returning varsity players (newbies always make a splash and make the list, so don’t worry about them for now).

AUTHOR’S NOTE: There’s a good chance I’m missing someone worthy. If I am (especially if you know them), take a deep breath and please send me a calm email. If they are a good fit for the list, I may just update it to include them. Thanks for your consideration!
