A. Maceo Smith had a horrible esason last year. Lonnie Calahan only inherits a team that returns 3 starters and 3 lettermen. Overall, numbers are down at A. Maceo Smith, and this could be a very bad team. They will battle with Adamson to see who will be the last place team in the district.
One of the best sophomores last season was Marquis Franklin. He made first team offensive line in a district that is usually loaded with great linemen. Whoever ultimately ends up at quarterback will have some decent skill players. Julian Richardson will be at running back and speedy Marquis McCormick at receiver.
The defense will have a lot of questions this year - only returning 1 starter from not such a great defense in the first place. Linebacker Jeremiah McCoy not only the best player because he is the only returning player, but because he is big and fast. He will be the best player on a bad team.
A. Maceo Smith had a solid couple of years of chances, but they were not able to cash them in. Now, with the talent well drying up at A. Maceo Smith, they could fall on hard times. Look for A. Maceo Smith to finish 5th in the district of six teams this season.
