High School Boys basketball rankings

Image

As part of this new blog experience, I will give you my take and what I feel are the top 10 girls and boys basketball teams in the state. Now, I know what you are asking. “Hey Moss, where are your wrestling rankings?, ya jerk!”

Bottom line is, I am only one man…granted….one super awesome man! But still, only one man and The Predicament does an amazing job of covering and ranking the wrestlers in the state of Iowa. Therefore, I shall leave the wrestling rankings to those men, but don’t be fooled…we talk wrestling here too.

Here is my boys preseason top 10 poll. Now some of you may see these and think that its just one guys opinion. I assure you that while they are an opinion, I do my research and talk to other media members as well as friends who are located all over the state. I hope that as we go, I will earn your trust 🙂

While I feel I do not need to explain my rankings to anyone, I will, if asked in a calm, respectful manner. Thanks for reading, and if you know of anyone who would be interested in keeping up on prep sports in the state of Iowa, send them right here, to Corn Fed Preps

 

Welcome and Thank you

ImageI do not know what was the final push, but I finally decided to get into the blog-o-sphere. (Is that still a term or am I so late to this that I missed the boat?) 

This is a blog dedicated to what I love and love covering, that is Girls and Boys Prep Sports in the state of Iowa. Here is a little background on myself.

My name is Jeff Moss, I am the sports director at KLMJ/KQCR radio in Hampton, IA and I have been here for 6 years. Our sports department is dedicated to covering prep sports in North Central and Eastern Iowa as we cover 14 area schools. I also have a deep passion for sports in the state of Iowa, not only in my coverage area but all over the great state of Iowa. 

This blog is for you, all the people who love what I love. What you will find here are my thoughts, my stories, my experiences and my passion. If you see something you like, by all means, share it. If you see something you don’t like, well thats ok. Cause as Stuart Smalley once said “Im good enough, Im smart enough, and doggone it, people like me”
