I'm picking Kelvyn Park and Brian Carter(sr, RB, #23) to finish at the top of the Inter-city 1 conference. It won't be easy. Lake View should be a heavy challenger.
Neilski’s predicted finish
1. Kelvyn Park
2. Lake View
3. Marine Military
4. UCCS- Woodlawn
Players to look out for
Brian Carter (sr, RB), Kelvyn Park
Danny Rodriguez (sr, WR) Kelvyn Park
Carlton Coleman(5-11, 150lbs, jr) Kelvyn Park
Mike Dangerfield (sr, 5-10, 215lbs, FB)- Lake View
Jordan Miller(so, WR), Lake View
Jeffrey Rector(sr), Roosevelt
Odies Nix(sr, QB/SS), Marine Military
Tabarie Nix (jr, RB/CB) Marine Military
Travell Swanson(sr, QB/OLB) UCCS - Woodlawn
Bradon Suggs(jr, 6-1, 215lbs, T/OLB), UCCS - Woodlawn
The Inter-City 1 is known for it’s most dominant player Brian Carter(sr, RB) of Kelvyn Park. Carter, one of the state’s leading rushers last year returns for his senior year. He will try to propel Kelvyn Park to that elusive conference title. Last year, Kelvyn Park lost a heartbreaking 18-16 game to conference champ Little Village in the last game of the season.
Kelvyn Park’s most likely toughest challenger will be Lake View. Lake View was demoted down to the Inter-City 1 after finishing last in the Chicago Big Shoulders Conference last year. But they lost 3 conference games by a combined 9 points, so Lake View is not a pushover. Look out for bruising fullback Michael Dangerfield(5-10, 215lbs, FB/LB).
Marine Military, 3rd in conference last year, will have to replace a lot of graduated defensive starters. Offensively, Marine Military will be led by the Nix brothers. Odies Nix(jr) starts at QB while his brother Tabarie starts at running back. Odies is one of the leading scorers on the Marine Military basketball team.
