South Dakota Boys Class AA
1. SF Lincoln 2. Huron 3. SF Roosevelt 4. Rapid City Stevens 5. Brandon Valley
This class has nine teams that are good enough to beat anyone in the state, which should make class AA very entertaining this year. Lincoln comes in as the team with the least to dislike. They are big and...

Avon had played their 2013 campaign with nary a loss, their closest game being a 20-
point win. Hamlin had a seasoned defense, also playing to an 11-0 mark coming...
