Columbus Metro 2015-16 predictions:

St. Charles had 6 kids at ACE, Dublin Scioto had 5 and we had 3. St. Charles should return a solid squad but depends which players show up to which tournament. If they can bring their A list players they can step up to the plate with teams like Tipp, Copley etc.

Scioto: Koh was able to recruit fresh blood for Scioto ie freshman/sophomores. If they continue to study together and Koh keeps up with the OSU team they will be the best team in Central Ohio! Koh can make or break a match and if he goes cold they lose but with help they will be tough as nails.

Fisher will be solid with Hunter as mentioned before and they always reload with with Lynn/Sedlak power. They will be like Northmont this year in the sense that they are down a great player in Brandon/Sam but have great resources in their coaches.

Liberty is stacked with seniors this year and our A/B teams will be tough. If they continue to study which is hard to do their senior year they will be good. The A team with Tim/Sneha/Rebekah/Adam has most areas covered minus Lit/Geography. The B team which should be Cameron/Avivah/George/Jack/Hanley will be tough as well. Early in the season XC and Tennis will take their toll as my roster will be in flux till the fall sports are over.

Solid Teams
Bexley has a coach that is willing to try some NAQT this upcoming year and has won their league for the last 4-5 years
Dublin Jerome has talent but they don't travel
Dublin Coffman is a lesser version of Jerome and Scioto
Wellington lost most of their team from last year
Westerville/Worthington (5 HS) do well at In The Know TV show but don't do much outside of the NE ITK league.
Upper Arlington/ Grandview Heights each came to one of my tournaments so maybe they will venture more outside the 270 beltway for matches but not much further.
Grove City beat us on chipbowl this year and if they ventured out they could be good. Their coach is willing to step out of chipbowl.
CAHS has talent and plays NAQT in their league matches.
Chillicothe lost their seniors but will continue to grow
Teams that could be on the rise

These teams came to a TU/B type tournament ie NAQT/PACE style tournament last year.
Buckeye Valley
Pickerington North
Fairfield Christian

Cortney Bird
OQBA co-director
QB Coach @ Olentangy Berlin HS 2018-Present
Statistician @ NE ITK league
