Entry #: 4184922
I do not have an actual website this year as levae.com no longer serves the purpose it once did. I am in the process of making a new great new website and looking to add players and games of the week highlights on the page for next season. These rankings are only my opinion as many of you know I have been doing these for 11 years and I am pretty accurate with my opinions not only regionally but I am well known at the national level as well. I am still not coaching anymore as I am very busy with the prep school but I will be attending games starting this week... we have 2 weeks until playoffs begin.. Some major headlines we should be looking at…
HEADLINES FROM THIS PAST WEEK: 2. Dorchester Eagles JPW beats 3. East Lynn Bulldogs 26-6
My take: The Eagles are now the favorite to come out of emass at JPW and I think I will make the call that I see them for West Haven for the d1 title in Worcester after Thanksgiving
Remember to send in your player of the week nominees for last week’s contest.. Also games of the week for this week will be listed at the divisions they are in..
1. Emass playoffs now have seeds 1-8 no longer leagues matter where you are in the playoffs
2. RISMA HAS NO PLAYOFFS
3. Unlimited division looks strong again and will try to maybe get us another national title?
4. Games of the week and player of the week submissions can begin by emailing me directly @ email@example.com
5. As many of you know I have paid my own way in traveling to nationals and regionals and games each week for many years...I have now set up a PayPal account for travel funds and for the website we are in the process of making…
6. Can anyone confirm that Brockton is division 1 or 2… ? I have heard many sources tell me differently..
PAYPAL ACCOUNT : firstname.lastname@example.org
ALSO starting next week I will also post how regionals will look as well as including the emass playoff set up and the scpw and northern CT playoff brackets…
1st round playoffs begin for SCPW this weekend..
Without Further ado….
Unlimited one more week will be the wait as I got some wrong info on certain teams. I will have a full top 10 next week.
D3 will also have a full 10 for each weight class starting next Monday night.. I think a lot of people will be surprised ?
This week I will most likely be in Hyde Park for the big JPW game between them and Mt Hope
Division 1 Midgets (ONLY TOP 5 WITH MOST TEAMS AT UNLIMITED NOW)
Game of the Week : 1. Hartford Hurricanes @ 5. Somerville
1. Hartford Hurricanes (6-0) Next Game: vs Somerville. Great game to watch it will be great to see how regionals go for them. As of now they are undisputed number 1 in New England
