2016 Preseason Rankings – NKY

Simon Kenton tops the list of our preseason TriStateFootball.com NKY Team Rankings. The Pioneers will be challenged by another deep group of Class 6A squads who look to knock them out of the #1 spot. No one was able to displace Simon Kenton from the top spot a year ago and it will take a gargantuan effort to do so again this fall. The Pioneers know how to win and have an experienced returning cast that make them primed for another deep playoff run.

Despite finishing last season at 5-8 CovCath has a great nucleus returning. Look for the Colonels to make some noise and get back to their traditional winning ways.

Small school Beechwood has to replace much of its firepower at the skill positions. The Tigers always seem to reload but there are plenty of question marks about who will be the players to step up and fill the voids left behind by a very successful graduated senior class.
