2017-2018 7A District 7 Preview

7A District 7 Preview

Teams:     Armwood     Blake      Brandon       Chamberlain      King    Hillsborough

 

Last season the 7A District 7 will be pretty much the same this sesson.  A top heavy district that’s will showcase experienced teams.

 

Predictions:

  1. Armwood
  2. Chamberlain
  3. Hillsborough
  4. King
  5. Brandon
  6. Blake
  • Armwood – Coach Patrick Kelly and the Hawks went 15-12 overall last year, 6-4 in district play. Armwood started off drastically slow losing 4 out of their first 5 games.  Some of the loses were due to injuries because the do have a decent team when healthy.  Ky Harmon and Stephonse Mack are the impact guys for the Hawks.  After watching them a couple of times in pre season, i think if they stay focused defensively they will be the favorites to win this district.  Look for 6’6″ PF Malcolm Lamar to be the difference.

 

  • Hillsborough – Hillsborough coming off a District title, has its hands full this season.  Coach Chris Ward.has to replace major impact players,  Bryce MoragneZach CarterDexter Stallworth were big pieces.  The Terriers will focus on 2019 Tyler Thomas and 2020 Tyriq James.

 

  • Brandon – was 17-7 overall a year ago, 2-9 in district play. Graduating Seniors Harrison Jones(Pasco-Hernando CC) and Kobe Weaver made up more then half of the teams PPG average, that’s a big lose in this years lineup.  With a new Coach and trying to find something or someone that works, this will be a rebuilding year for the Eagles.

 

  • King – Went 13-14 overall last year, 6-6 in district play under Coach Micheal Weaving and had two decent seasons.  However, Coach Weaving is no longer running the Lions.  But i do think they will be .500 team.

 

  • Chamberlain – went 16-10 overall last season, 8-3 in district play.  Coach Christopher Synder and the Chiefs were runner-ups last season and will make a strong push to win it all. Coach Synder always has a player that’s a diamond in the rough.

 

  • Blake – In 2015-16 and 2016-17, the Yellow Jackets had very disappointing seasons. going 0-10 in both district seasons. The Yellow Jackets need to show life.  Lets see who will be the guy.
