I think this is the most intriguing class heading in to the fall.

I could see 4 teams (Valpo, New Pal, Cathedral, Dwenger) winning it honestly.  I think the gap to tier 2 (Columbus East, Castle, Bloomington South, Decatur Central) is fairly large after those four.

Just my opinion.

No Zionsville?

I agree. It’ll be interesting to see how they can do in 5A. Looks like they have a top OL and a top Runningback. Back juniors

Not sure I'd put New Pal in the top tier, especially early on.  Roughly 40% of the roster graduated with a ton of key players to replace.   Not saying the Dragons won't be a factor,  but a lot will depend on how quickly the young guys step up.

Not falling for this one again...they’ll be there when it counts.

I think my Floyd Central team will be in the mix for a Regional Title. They play Louisville Male and Cincinnati Elder early, so they’ll have the opportunity to be able to prove themselves right off the bat.

I think that looks about right. Valpo is also very close with their enrollment

Don't forget that the two Hammond schools are closing and consolidating.

Agreed. They may show some weaknesses and even lose one or both to Decatur Central and Brebeuf. But, they'll get an idea in weeks 1 and 2 which players and schemes work, iron out kinks in HHC play, and Ralph will have them ready for a playoff run by week 10.

Yep.  Couldn’t agree more.

(I do find it as a breath of fresh air that their supporters on here practice humility though.)

The Dragons are the champs until they get knocked off. They deserve that top tier status. However, it’ll be a lot more challenging this year for them and I think 5A will be an exciting class to see who makes it to Lucas Oil

So sorry you're blatantly misinformed, but the Pandemic rolls on, and in many places it is exercising its second wind. All of these, so called, reopening to normalcies, are just a gamble that every state's health department may be able to stay on top of the citizen's healthy do diligence and everyone continues to exercise safe social distancing, and the use of face masks. I guess it is fine to handicap  your own decision making for the finishes in 5A football.

No body is gambling anything by reopening.   
I remember when the scare was hospitals being overwhelmed.  Once it was clear that would not happen,  the goal posts moved to get rid of it altogether.  Now that we opened back up, you are going to soft play it again and say, it’s only a Safety measure to avoid overwhelming the hospitals and then you will move to we have to have a vaccine and on and on.  
We need to live ours lives not in fear unlike your wishes for everyone.  Take a hike.

Castle can’t get over the 3-4 or 4-3 ump in the siac. With the new 10-team siac I can see them at 6–4 or 5-5 consistently.

To each their own opinion: correct or incorrect. Remember, death comes to each of us, there is no escape. But if we can come to our own devises to stick around until the Almighty actually wants us to make a personal appearance in front of the Pearly Gates; therefore we shouldn't' be hurrying the process along.

I think the Left wants to extend the Pandemic as much as they can. They want to spread fear and chaos among the public. 

I bet the families of the 120,000+ dead folks would disagree with you.  There's no bigger fan than me but I don't want anyone to suffer a serious illness or just to fulfill my fun fantasies.  I hope I'm wrong but I'm still worried that we won't see our beloved football this fall.

Gonna be a lot of new faces for the Dragons in 2020.  Reminds me a lot of 2017.  Not sure what we have yet, especially with the virus shutting everything down.  What we do have is a OL that will return 4 players that started in 2019.  Three of them have D1 offers.  Also a WR and a LB with D1 offers.  QB returns.  It's a good start.  Sophomore group lost one game in middle school and has some very good talent.  Some of them are going to play.  Some big holes to fill at RB and in the secondary (all 5 players graduated).

The secondary is the biggest question mark I think.  I believe all 5 were at least 3 year starters, that's a lot of talent and experience to replace.   Can't wait for the season to start.

Maybe I’m missing something, but there seems to be little talk of the Cathedral Irish here. They return all their skill players sans the QB and majority of OLine. Also advancing is a stacked junior class of 40 players that were undefeated freshmen through arguably the toughest freshmen schedule in the country. Senior depth and leadership at D-Line, RB, WR1, WR2. 
 

Our schedule lightens this year too as we only travel to Penn and Louisville Trinity. We did add a big game with Carmel out of the gates and an emerging Westfield team. I believe this is the deepest Cathedral team in a decade. We’ll know more after Carmel.

Cathedral will be back in the state finals this year. That is my pick for the South
