Green County at Monroe County Predictions/Updates


Recommended Posts

Monroe County (0-4) Travels to Green County (3-0) for a district battle this Friday night.  Monroe has had a tough season so far, but they always play the Dragons tough and I expect them to do the same this Friday night. 

Give me the Dragons 42-14.

The Dragons check in at #10 in the 2A rankings this week. I love seeing programs outside of the usual suspects make themselves known. We've seen it from West Carter and Hancock County. Now it's Green County's turn.

Last week's win over Taylor County was super impressive. That momentum could carry the Dragons for quite a while.

Green should win this by at least 30+.  I don't see any real challenge until Metcalfe Co, which I still think Green Co would be favored in.  Green Co. looks like they are back.  Last weeks win was very impressive and GC-Dragons tried to tell me they were much better this year 😁

Green County names the score!

Hey GC, who is your biggest district competition?

Hey Purple88,

It has to be Metcalfe. Metcalfe pretty much returned the entire team. They did lose a good LB and their best RB from last years team, but everything else is back. They are very solid and that game is at Metcalfe, should be a tough one. 

The rest of the district is very down. Clinton, Monroe, and Edmonson all have the worst teams they have had in recent memory. Green has a real chance at competing for a regional title this year.

I knew they would be improved, but they have even been better than I suspected. I also knew Coach Phelps walked into a gold mine when he got the job. They returned every starter minus one lineman. With that said, Coach Phelps has done nothing but inspire the kids and run a great system. He took the ball and ran with it. Great young coach and I expect big things from him over the next few years.

That would be big for Green County.  Any year with a Regional Championship is extremely successful in my book.  I'll be pulling for you guys!

Sounds like you will likely play Metcalfe in the second round too.  That will be a big game!

Metcalfe is absolutely their only competition in the district and should be two really good games. I think Green does have a advantage in just bodies I think Metcalfe only has around 30 players and I think Green is somewhere in the mid 40s. As far as winning the region it would depend on their draw if they were to get any of the big 3 in the region it would probably be tough but if they got a favorable draw and got someone else I think they would have a shot.

Unfortunately Green County has less kids than Metcalfe. I believe the Dragons have around 26-28 kids most days. I would say that the first 13-15 kids Green puts on the field are as good as any team in the area. Just very little depth. Skill position wise, they are as deep and talented as any small 2a school that's from a rural area I've seen in a long time. The good news for Dragon fans is all 3 of the Rb return next year along with the QB and 4 of 5 Linemen. The Dragons are still a young team.

My mistake I usually try to look at the rosters of local teams at the beginning of the season and I was thinking Green had more that that. That’s why you shouldn’t try to go off memory when you’re almost 50.
