  1. Argyle (Texas) There is no debate over which team will start the 2019 season at No. 1. Argyle won 37 straight games and captured the Texas Class 4A state championship in fairly easy fashion. MaxPreps National Coach of the Year Ricky Griffin returns eight starters from that squad, including the entire infield and outfield. Over 20 pitching wins also return. All-American candidates Brendan Dixon at shortstop and Preston King at second base return, while Austin King is back at catcher. The outfield is strong with the return of MaxPreps All-American Hayden Clearman and Dillon Carter. The pitching staff also returns Dallas News All-Area pick Sean Bolinalong with junior Tate Van Poppel, the son of former MLB pitcher Todd Van Poppel.American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.) The 2018 season had to be a disappointing one for the Patriots, who began ranked No. 1 in the nation and were eliminated from the postseason by Merritt Island in the regional playoffs. Despite losing two MLB draft picks in Tristan Casas and Cory Acton, American Heritage still figures to be one of the top teams in the country. The Patriots have a multitude of Division I-committed players, including junior outfielder Enrique Bradfield, junior first baseman Gavin Casas and sophomore pitcher Devin Futrell — all committed to Vanderbilt. Throw in pitcher Ryan Cabarcas, a rising senior headed to Florida, and the Patriots have another stellar cast ready to make a run at a Florida state championship and possible national title.Blessed Trinity (Roswell, Ga.) Ranked among the top teams in the nation all season, the Titans fell to eventual state champion Jefferson in the Class 4A state semifinals. Blessed Trinity will be strong in the field, particularly up the middle, with MaxPreps Junior All-American CJ Abrams at shortstop and All-State pick Steele Chambers in the outfield. The pitching staff boasts one of the top sophomore pitchers in the nation in right-hander DJ Radtke. Full Article Video
  2. Max preps preseason top 100 Earlier this week we released our Top 25 Early Contenders and now it's time to dig even further and check out the Top 100. Four states — California, Texas, Florida and Georgia — claim over half the field. The Golden State leads the way with 16 teams, a slim edge over the Lone Star State's 15 teams. The Sunshine State has the third most with 12 and the Peach State has 10 teams represented. Alabama and Ohio are the only other two states to have at least five teams selected. Twenty-four states are represented overall, 25 counting Washington, D.C., with 17 of them having multiple teams selected. Thirty-seven of the 100 teams won state titles in 2017 and will have a chance to repeat this season. 1. St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif)The Braves check in as the No. 1 team entering the 2018 season. They are looking to win their third state title since 2013 and are led by 5-star quarterback DJ Uiagalelei and 4-star cornerback and 2019 USC commit Chris Steele. One of the Braves' biggest strengths this year is in the trenches. The top two teams in the nation both come from the Trinity League. 2. Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.)The defending National Champions have to replace a lot of key players, but still bring in one of the most complete teams into 2018. Bryce Young replaces JT Daniels under center and expect big seasons from Bru McCoy, Mike Martinez, Braedin Huffman-Dixon, Shakobe Harper and Sean Dollars on offense. The Monarchs secondary might be the best in the country led by 5-star Elias Ricks, 2020 Oklahoma commit Darion Green-Warren, 2019 Oregon commit Jeremiah Criddell and 3-star William Nimmo.3. IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.)Year in, year out IMG Academy has one of the most talented teams in the country and this year's squad is no exception. The Ascenders loaded with Division I prospects led by 5-star Trey Sanders, the No. 1 running back in the Class of 2019, and 2019 Georgia commit Nolan Smith, who checks in as the top rated player overall on 247sports.

  4. BULLS IN THE PROS: FORMER USF PITCHERS HAVING STRONG SEASONS TAMPA, JULY 20, 2018 – Former USF pitcher Tommy Eveld has been one of the California League's top relievers this season.Selected in the ninth round of the 2015 MLB Draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks, Eveld has a 2.03 ERA in 97 minor league games with 30 saves and 132 strikeouts. Named a A-Advanced California League All-Star for the Visalia Rawhide, the 6-foot-5 righty is 2-2 on the year with a 1.24 ERA and 42 strikeouts. Eveld has five saves with 14 strikeouts and a 0.00 ERA over his last 10 outings. Eveld did not begin his career as a USF student-athlete with the baseball program. He came to Tampa as a football player, spending the first three years on the team. It was not until 2015 when Eveld joined Billy Mohl's pitching staff. He appeared in 39 games as a Bull, totaling 92 strikeouts with nine saves in his final year. Eveld has really blossomed into the closer role, as he's currently third in the California League with 12 saves and has issued only seven walks.Rise of the PhoenixTwo-year USF starter Phoenix Sanders is transitioning to life in the bullpen. Sanders is 5-1 on the year with a 2.44 ERA, three saves and 63 strikeouts playing for the Bowling Green Hot Rods (A-Advanced).The former Friday night man for the Bulls went just 2-3 in five starts after being drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 10th round of the 2017 MLB Draft. He already has more strikeouts this season compared to last, having logged almost as many innings.His strikeout-to-walk ratio was 4:1 in 2017 and he averaged 9.42 K's per nine innings. Now in his first full professional season, Sanders has a 3.71:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio and is striking out 12.85 batters per nine innings. COCO STAYS HOT: Coco Montes has remained a force in the Pioneer League with the Grand Junction Rockies after being selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 15th round of this year's MLB Draft. In 30 games, Montes leads the league with a .407 average and 29 runs scored. He has nine doubles, two triples, four home runs and 19 RBI. Following a career season for USF in 2018, the infielder tallied two more multi-hit games last week and now has 14 for Grand Junction.

  6. Noon in the 99 dollar section is going to be fun. I'm used to sitting in the shade, I don't think my better half is going to make that trip. I may have a ticket up or grabs if you don't mind a little sun....or a lot of sun.

    Where did she transfer to?
  10. BrassBulls12

    Well, there's a missed opportunity . . .

    I was on lock down for two and half hours because there was a potential gunman on campus. Ended pulling a lunch date out it because there’s only so many classes you can look at to schedule.

    Your Breakout Footbulls for 2018

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a coupel really big seasons in the future. A lot of factors at play but he certainly has the potential to be an all time back for us.

    Well the whole post breaks down my opinion it’s not clear as day that he should be on there. There are four other options that’s could stake a claim.
