Football: 2014 City League Preview

Written by Mike White on .

In this 2014 football preview, Mike White takes a look at the City League.

Team to beat
Allderdice -- The Dragons have come close, but this finally might be the year they win their first City League football title since 1967. Coach Jerry Haslett's team lost in the title game a year ago for the second time in the past three seasons. A number of players return from the 2013 team, most notably twins James and Tim Jackson. Both are 6 feet 2, 175-pound juniors. Jim threw for 1,677 yards in 2013 and Tim caught 33 passes, averaging 30.6 yards per catch. Talon Scott, Anthony Langford and Lamone Dixon return on the lines.

University Prep -- The defending City League champion lost most of its starters to graduation. But coach Lou Berry does get back the most prominent player in the City in quarterback Ron Brown, a 5-9, 170-pound senior. University Prep throws often and Brown completed 207 of 342 passes for a whopping 3,401 yards and 43 touchdowns in 2013 in 10 games. But a whole new set of receivers must develop. Center Kevin Williams is back for his fourth season as a starter.
