Will the eastern streak come to an end in North Dakota 9-Man high school football this year? That’s one of the biggest storylines entering the 2018 season, in my opinion. New Salem/Glen Ullin is loaded with talent – and reached the Dakota Bowl and the state semifinal round in back-to-back seasons. Now, the Holsteins have a chance to become the first team from the western half of the state to win a 9-Man state title since Mott-Regent back in 2007. Wyndmere-Lidgerwood made it 10 straight titles for the east last year, but the Warbirds will be filling a lot of spots vacated by last year’s senior-heavy team. I think 9-Man will be a wide-open race with some of the usual suspects in contention. Shiloh Christian is coming off a state runner-up finish – and Thompson, Cavalier and Napoleon/Gackle-Streeter are also fielding strong programs year after year.

I love making lists, it forces me to evaluate players, talk to coaches, and really dive deep into high school football. Even after all that research it’s impossible to put a definitive list together that everyone can agree on. With that in mind here is my conversation starter of top players in the state. Today I’ll start with Class 11AAA and work...
