I posted this at the beginning of League games and I thought we could revisit it now again. Mostly because I was right in just about every one of the league champs and my ego needs it at the moment - lol

Is there any question which team will win the ship in these 10 OC leagues?

Trinity - Easy one here - even with the sprained ankle for Wang - Mater Dei has enough returners (including the next POTUS) and Frosh fire power to go undefeated. SM is the next closest and lost it big in the 4th.

*correction - They did NOT go undefeated, but still will win

Freeway: Buena Park has been picked to dethrone the perennial Sonora champs (since they graduated everyone), but I personally would not rule out Troy who have a couple of impressive wins under their belt and a nice tourney ship from lower level Damian bracket.

* I admit - got this somewhat wrong (so far) - La Habra on the driver seat but not over yet.

Sunset: Two horse race here, will Newport Harbor finally break Edison's string of league wins? Los Al is down (even Eyman is not enough to save them), Marina is much improved but not enough firepower, so the question is can Newport make enough 3's to offset the blocking ability of Phillips inside?

* Edison running away with it...

South Coast: IMHO this will be the most highly contested league in all of orange county - Tesoro, Trabuco, San Clemente and Aliso Niguel have solid teams and will take turns beating one another. Although most are picking Trabuco my money is on Tesoro if they find a way to perfect their inside outside game.

* As predicted - this will go down to the last day of league games!

Empire: Tustin and Cypress have been leading the pack in this league in recent years. It appears that will be the case again this year. Tustin usually does a better job finding talent but have been down the last couple of years so have to rely on coaching. Cypress has the horses this year and appear to be playing together more than past years. I will give Cypress the edge.

* Pacifica showed some life but after losing the last two games by 15 each they are now coming back to earth

Pacific Coast: Northwood has the coaching and returning players to take this one. They have impressive wins at two December tournaments including beating JSerra. Beckman is a dark horse.

* Northwood as predicted but they did get upset by Beckman which I picked as the dark horse

Golden West: Ocean view does not play the strongest pre-season schedule but still the class of the Golden West returning a couple of players that were varsity as sophomores.

* No brainer here - OV will win easily

Garden Grove: Garden Grove has an impressive record this year, relies on speed and quickness with just one single player over 6 feet. Santiago could provide a speed bump on their patch to the ship.

* Another easy pick - GG all the way.

North Hills: Villa Park still remains the best recruiting public school in Orange County. Gained quality players from Brea and El Toro to stay on top. Poaching players from your own conference may be frown upon but still legal. Will go undefeated in league.

* Is VP having a hard time integrating their new pieces? Will still win weak league.

Crestview: Canyon is one of the best programs in OC. Lots of talent and even better coaching. Esperanza is a one horse team but may sneak an upset win due to its players recognizing their role. They went to state with a similar system last year, granted KZ was special.

* Another good prediction - Canyon is dominating!

Come at me now fellas!!! haha
