By Greg Williams

With the start of the high school season less than a month away we will be previewing conferences around the state leading up to opening day. In addition to a look at the top teams we will also highlight some of the top prospects in each conference.

                 district 6 Class AAAA

Preseason Favorite

State College (17-7) 

The Little Lions come off of an inconsistent 2013 season that ended with a 12-1 loss to Lower Dauphin the eventual Class AAA State Champions in the Western PA semifinals. State College graduated five seniors that were every day starters, but return enough talent offensively along with an ace in LHP Nick Raquet to make them the clear favorite in District 6 again this year.

 

in the mix

Central Mountain (11-11)

A talented junior class may still be a year away, but will have plenty of opportunities to show they are up to the task of replacing roughly 2/3 of the 2013 offense that departed with seven seniors.
