Can Blue Ridge, led by Chans Cox repeat? They are the preseason favorites...

2012 Preseason D4 Rankings

1.  Blue Ridge
2.  Snowflake
3.  Seton Catholic
4.  Show Low
5.  Buckeye
6.  Florence
7.  Empire
8.  Fountain Hills
9.  Mingus
10. River Valley

The Favorite:  Blue Ridge
The defending state champs return Arizona State recruit Chans Cox (LB/RB) and talented Quarterback Skyler Hill.  The Paul Moro coached Yellowjackets are not new to the favorites role.

The Challenger:  Snowflake
The Lobos proved to be Blue Ridge's biggest challenge in last year's regular season.  Like Blue Ridge, they return most of their key players.  Dual threat Chase Walden returns at QB.  In 2011, Walden threw for over 1500 yards and added another 995 on the ground.  

On the Rise:  Buckeye
2011 ended in a playoff loss to eventual champ Blue Ridge.  UofA recruit DeAndre Miller (LB) looks to take Buckeye to the next level this season.
