    Only lose 6 seniors. The entire O-Line is back minus a TE. 9 returning starters on offense and 8 on D.

    Y’all will be in the top teams of D. I expect you guys to take Blacksburg’s spot. Byrd plays a schedule to the tune of GW but the rider points for LB, SR, and LB (possibly even Fleming) will put y’all in the top 4/5.

    I only saw Byrd play Glass last year, so my assessment on them is very limited. One thing I noticed about Byrd was their run defense. Most teams on their schedule are run dominant teams, and Byrd matched up well against them. I just thing Northside and Lord Botetourt will outscore Byrd enough to get the wins.

    Lord Botetourt isn't the type of team who normally beats Byrd as they are a run heavy team typically. Just look at last year's game. It was over about 5 minutes in.

    Blacksburg is in the RRD, so Byrd would take 2nd spot in the BRD is what you are saying? I would agree with that. I'd put Lord Botetourt 1st, with Byrd, Northside, Fleming, and Staunton River probably dropping to the bottom of a more competitive overall district from top to bottom. .

    I was just thinking Lord Botetourt would be a little better than Last years team. You're probably right. But Byrd has a very good run defense.

    Byrd will more than likely be no worst than 9-1/8-2 and Blacksburg at worst will be 7-3/6-4.

    Here's what I think about our schedule this year:
    Likely Wins: @ Cave, @ Hidden Valley, Basset, @ Martinsville, Fleming (x2), Staunton River
    Toss-Up: Northside, @ LB, Richlands (Their size will match-up well against us imo).
    So I think anywhere from 10-0 to 7-3 is realistic in the regular season.
