NKY Boys 2015 Soccer Preview
8/3/2015 - by Bluegrass Preps
The Bluegrass Games are behind us. Soccerama is around the corner. Is Northern Kentucky ready for some soccer? One theme seems to echo across the region---lots of teams lost many good seniors. However, that does not necessarily mean that their team is down. Strong programs fill it right back up. So which teams took a big hit? Which teams will make a run? Which teams are dark horses?

Yellow Card and I thought we would get the conversation started with our preseason rankings. We would love to hear your thoughts as well. Here we go!

1. Covington Catholic - Because this is where CCH is always ranked in the Pre-Season Soccer polls. Bryce Day, Jacob Litzler and Michael Wessels will head up a group of seniors that could number as many as 18 boys. Then you throw in a handful of juniors and you have a very experienced squad. Is this the year that all the promise and expectations are finally realized in Park Hills? Or will we see another off season in which discussions centers around how much possession the Colonels had and how bad they could have used a "Natural Scorer”.

2. St Henry - Defending 9th Region champs. The Cru played very well at Bluegrass Games, showcasing a large talented group of juniors and sophomores who have been waiting for their chance to play varsity after losing so many seniors. Some solid varsity returners include strikers Jack Neltner and DJ Sanders, midfielder Ian Manahan and sophomore Carter Kunstek at center back. Although they will have a new keeper between the pipes, Tate Johnson has plenty of skill and experience and should prove to be one of the best in NKY.

3. Ryle -With a talented Striker in El-Gusain, the best defender in the region in Nathan Roe, and Will Bedel in goal, the Raiders should match up well with any teams in NKY. Their young talent, including sophomores Jordan and Bolin, should also prove to be instrumental in helping them get back to the Regional Tournament this season.
