How we did…with the Semis upcoming, we revisited our preseason Top 5’s. @minguabeefjerky @KyHighFootball @PrepSpin @MaxPreps @1776Bank

Friend of ours, Mark Cook from Belfry, was amazed at how many times KPGFootball was right this preseason with our Top-5s by classification. He asked us to go back and remind everyone how we picked the 6 classifications way back before the first game was played.

To refresh your combined recollections, the first paragraph is how KPGFootball saw it then. The second paragraphs are the teams which are still standing this morning and will play in the classification’s “Final Four” this coming Friday night.

Were we perfect? No!

Were we amazingly accurate, though not perfect? You be the judge…
