Elite 11: Preseason edition

Each week, we’re scouring the Mid-Penn, Lancaster-Lebanon, York, and Berks conferences to determine the top 11 teams in the area regardless of classification. Take a look at which teams made the cut in our preseason.  Disagree, let us know on Twitter (@4thdownmag) and Facebook.

11. Conrad Wieser0-0NR
Berks Division II is a place to pick off wins when you have a quarterback and wideout who are setting records at an alarming pace. Defense is full of newbies and will require the offense to score a ton of points. Opener with No. 2 Central York is brutal, but I believe this offense can and will score a lot of points.
10. Steel-High0-0NR
Lost their All-State wideout to a transfer and running back position was hit hard by graduation. Still a fan of what is going on in the trenches on both sides of the ball and I have a feeling the wideout and RB positions will be filled adequately.
9. Wyomissing0-0NR
Very well aware they lost a half-dozen All-State players from a machine of a two-way squad that had almost no weaknesses. Most concerned about the losses up front on the OL. Still the Class of 3A and will be doing more reloading than rebuilding in ‘21.
In that wicked efficient and very difficult to defense Flex/Veer the Eagles run, having two options at the back position in addition to the QB is key. Steven Flinton and Anthony Bourassa are a lethal combo that make Cocalico an even tougher out.
7. Wilson0-0NR
Very well aware the Bulldogs took a slobber knocker to the chin in terms of offensive lineman graduating. Like everybody is gone. Wilson gets better and finds a way to mix-and-match parts at the skill positions. Up front, particularly on offense, is where the rubber will meet the road.
6. Harrisburg0-0NR
Cougars bring some beef to the table up front on both sides of the ball and Kyle Williams is going to be a very special player. Numbers are real problem on the upper reaches of Market Street and the QB and RB positions are major question marks.
5. Manheim Township0-0NR
There’s a lot for the Blue Streaks to show me on the offensive side of the ball beyond their blue-chip do-everything guy we all know about. I’m a big believer this team will need the defense to carry the load for a while and I don’t think that’s a tall ask.
4. Central Dauphin0-0NR
I still think this squad will be super strong in spots and will play to its strengths on both sides of the ball. Just wondering when the QB gets a little more freedom in this offense to light it up if necessary. He has the tools.
3. Bishop McDevitt0-0NR
There is the issue of experience and to a lesser degree the talent at the quarterback position that needs answered. Beyond that … well there’s a lot of young and very well know talent that has gained experience. Sitting on a big year.
2. Central York0-0NR
In Beau you should trust, right. I mean I would never bet against the dude after the “game” he showed last year in terms of doing whatever it took. Yes there are some major playmakers that have moved on but overall, though, this is a squad with precious few questions that need answers.
1. Governor Mifflin0-0NR
This group of Mustangs is a pure football bully. They have three-quarters of their starters back on both sides of the ball including vets on that OL that make the Flex-Bone roll. Also having one of the top RB recruits in the country to tote the rock is a double dose of cruelty. Most complete team regardless of classification.
