Hit News’ 2008 Nebraska Class A Football Preseason Top Ten Teams

Posted on June 11, 2008. Filed under: High School Football | Tags: |

   Creighton Prep tops the chart in our 2008 preseason rankings of the
Top Ten Class A Football Teams.

    The 2008 Jr Jays will field  what are arguably the top offensive and defensive lines in the state, led by OT Jon Lechner (6-5, 310) and Junior DT Jeff Uher (6-2, 260) respectively.  Add to this mix senior signal caller Alex Hook (6-2, 170), a savy leader and outstanding all-around athlete that is adept at both running and throwing the football, and it’s very difficult not to have this team sitting on top of any preseason list.

    Though Creighton Prep may currently reside on top of our chart—it wasn’t a clear cut decision—as each one of the top five teams listed in our poll have strong arguments for being ranked number one. But as for now, Millard South, Bellevue West, Millard North, and Millard West will have to prove their merit on the gridiron, while Creighton Prep bares the pressure of having to perform up to its billing. 

    Look out for the rest of the teams rounding out our Top Ten to make their cases as the season progresses. And do not be surprised to see a team or two not in the “Ten” make a move up the charts. There are several pretty talented teams outside the rankings that are capable of making  deep runs into the playoffs.

    It should be a good year to watch some great Nebraska Class A Football.
