Boy, this Football Journal is trying to sneak up on me. It goes to press Aug. 22, publishes Aug. 24. I know it’ll all get done, but until it does, I’ll be stressing.
One element I’m trying to finish up is the Players to Watch list. I’ve about got my 12 seniors nailed down, but I’m still seeking info on the area’s top juniors. I know about a few of the guys – Erik Buchanan (Aberdeen), Michael Carr (West Point), Eric Johnson (New Albany), Deshaun McGaughy (Itawamba AHS), to name a few – but I’ve not had the chance to get the full picture.
This is where you can help me out a little. I know a lot of teams will be depending on juniors, because that’s the year a lot of guys first earn a starting role. Which juniors out there do you think will have a good, or great, season?
