2017 dp Power Rankings

Overview - Overall
While we have already slotted each classification by region and overall, we always find it to be a fun exercise to throw all the public schools into a fantasy scenario, some sort of a statewide tournament where we pick our winners if they were to ever actually play on the field.

2017 dp Pre-Season Rankings: 1A

-1A Overview-
Even with the new 5 class system in the state, expect to see some of the familiar names at the top of class A. McBee will look to repeat, but Lamar returns eight starters and every pitcher from last season's team that split two games with McBee. Lake View has a top 1-2 punch in their rotation, but can their bats come through? Could w...

2017 dp Pre-Season Rankings: 3A
