Conference Preview

Posted On: 11/25/15 10:45 PM

The Longmont Trojans were the kings of the Northern Conference last year. With all that talent returning, that probably won’t change. Nonetheless, a league that was solid beyond LHS might have a bit stronger challengers in the likes of Thompson Valley and Mountain View out of Loveland, both of which should be improved after reaching the 4A playoffs, but losing in the first round.

Below is the predicted order of finish:

1) Longmont. Last season: 27-1 overall, 14-0 in league.

The Trojans have arguably the best player in Class 4A in Justinian Jessup, and without a doubt, will have plenty of motivation after a perfect season was ended in overtime of the state finals against Air Academy. The Trojans will again be one of the favorites for the state title with versatile, skilled weapons like Jessup and Kevin Mitchell. The scary thing for the rest of the state is that they only graduated two varsity players, good ones in Blake O’Grady and Clint Sigg, but with Longmont’s depth of Kolton Bachman, Eli Sullivan, David Speidel, and company, along with an excellent coach in Jeff Kloster, the Trojans should conquer the Northern.
