OHHS old timer: Fairland lost their entire starting 5, and their 6th man. I have picked Fairland for 5th in the OVC. I actually think that Gallia's biggest challenge might come from Ironton, which returns starters Charlie Large, Ethan Wilson, and Reid Carrico. They only lost to the Blue Devils last season by 7 at Ironton. I also look for Chespeake to be quite improved, but not enough to win the league.

Fairland simply lost too much to even come close to what they did the last 3 years. That was a special group of players for Coach Speed.

I know that we are quite a way from the start of the season, but if you were to guess, where would you put the Trojans at this early stage?

Thanks trojandave: I knew Fairland lost 3 of the starting 5...didn't realize it was all 5 + sixth man. That being said, I agree with you on Ironton. Outside of the Peake...really isn't anyone else.

Whats your thoughts on Coal Grove? They may not have much size coming back. I saw Arron Music during the summer in a couple practice games, hes a pretty good player.

Music and Borders for Coal Grove are both really good. They will compete and knock off a lot.

VetteMan: As far as the Trojans, I guess I could give the typical "we're going to surprise some people" line as do a lot of people when they're talking about their team. Fact is, though, that this Trojan team will start the season with a lot of inexperience, losing 4 starters from a year ago......notice I didn't say we don't have some talent, because from an athletic standpoint, this will be the most athletic team (speed, quickness, getting up and down the court, jumping ability) since the regional final team of 2015. 6-2 Junior Matthew Fraulini returns from a season where he averaged 14 PPG as a sophomore. If Zach Loveday weren't the preseason POY in the OVC, Fraulini would be in the mix for that award. Statewide, he's ranked in the top 50 of the state. Other starters most likely will be 6-3 SR Myquel McKinley, 6-2 SO Miles Shipp, and 6-0 SR Daniel Lattimore. The 5th starter is wide open. McKinley has lost 15 lbs.playing soccer for PHS and is in great shape. He will be a difficult matchup in the post for opponents. Also 6-6 SR Andrew Meadows will figure prominently in Coach Collins plans. He has worked hard this summer, and will give the Trojans a true defensive presence in the post, either as a starter or coming off the bench.

I honestly believe Portsmouth is 1 year away from seriously competing for the OVC title and making a serious tournament run to the regionals, maybe beyond. This year, though, will be exciting because there is talent with inexperience, and with that uncertainty.

As far as Coal Grove, the Hornets do return Music and Borders, however, they lost 2 key players in Jeb Jones and Sam Angelo, who were very important in CG's run to the regionals a year ago. Judging from their JV squad last season, I don't see anyone that can replace the physical presence inside that those two players gave them. They will be competitive, but they could struggle offensively at times.

The OVC belongs this year to the Gallia Academy Blue Devils. They are a prohibitive favorite to win the title, and perhaps go undefeated in league play. As I mentioned above, though, keep an eye on Ironton. Charlie Large, Ethan Wilson,and Reid Carrico give the Fighting Tigers a solid nucleus for Coach Lafon. I think they pose the biggest threat to GAHS, but I also think Chesapeake will make a big move up to the top 3 of the league standings. The Panthers have most of their team back, including 6-3 SO Eli Archer, who had 21 points at Portsmouth last season.

Pa Trojan: Haven't seen the official schedule yet, but I believe we start the season playing Southeastern Ross at the Piketon tournament on Dec.1. We also have Minford, South Webster, Western Pike, Wheelersburg as part of our non-conference schedule.

I can’t wait for the season to open. Basketball is my favorite. I’d love to see Ironton make a strong run to the convo. This year.

I also don't think that Ironton will be an easy out for anyone in the OVC.

Watching the Trojans in practice, I am super excited about how athletic they are. Without question, this might be the quickest team in Coach Collins' 10 years. Overall athleticism is the best since the 2015 regional final team. I'm not saying the Trojans will win the OVC, as it's Gallia Academy's to lose, but there won't be any team more athletic than Portsmouth. That alone should make us very competitive, even in losses. Replacing 4 starters will be a challenge, and early in the season the Trojans might show some signs of inexperience. The ceiling for these Trojans, though, is much higher than I once thought.

GO TROJANS!!!

It should be an interesting OVC season with everyone trying to knock off Gallia Academy. It would be a major upset if the Blue Devils didn't win the title, and not only should they win it, but a perfect OVC record is a strong possibility. They'll probably have at least a couple of close conference games.

Agree with Trojan Dave about Gallia. Hoping my Tigers can get Gallia once and have a nice season. Best of luck to all OVC teams. Is the Fox kid at SP back healthy?

Bad news Fox has hurt his same knee again. It's kind of wait and see for the exact diagnosis.
