1. Thornton Academy

After years of knocking on the door, Trojans finally kicked it in last year. Now everyone wants what they’ve got.

2. Cheverus

Stags move East and reload.

3. Portland

Host cross-town rivals at Fitzpatrick Stadium for the first day of the season, when Bulldogs can make a major statement about what will happen there on the last day of the season.


4. Scarborough

Someone has to challenge TA in Western A. Red Storm seem to be most likely candidate.

5. Mt. Blue

The reigning champs start out at top of an impressive heap in remodeled Class B.

6. Lawrence

Bulldogs will try to knock the Cougars off the top next week.


7. Kennebunk

Rams return much of same cast. Solid in Class A, could dominate in Class B.

8. Leavitt

Doesn’t matter whether they’re in Class B or C. Hornets again have the talent to compete with some Class A teams.

9. Bangor

Rams have Xavier Lewis back. Will he bring them back to contention in Eastern A?

10. Cony

Even with realignment, Ben Lucas can’t escape Lawrence’s defense. He’ll dissect more than his share of defenses this fall, however.
