NEBRASKA PREP SPORTS

All Classes in Nebraska are down to 16 teams trying to get to Lincoln for the State title game. Everyone has there favorites to win it all, but 4 teams have extra pressure to finish number 1.

Team Pressure --

Number 1 is Howells in Class D-1. They have won 3 straight D-1 titles and 33 straight games. The majority of their players have never lost a varsity game.

Number 2 goes to Millard North. Always the bride maid never the bride. Last year's loss to Lincoln Southeast was especially painful.

Number 3 is Fillmore Central. Undefeated this season with a talented group of senior players. And one of the more talented running backs in the state. Can they remain focused on the team goals ?

Number 4 is Wahoo Bishop Neumann. Undefeated defending Class C-1 state champion has won 22 straight games and the community is focused on this team completeing the season with a title.

So Nebraska Prep Sports will take a look at how our panel sees the games this week and our PROJECTED STATE champion.
