First preseason national poll that I've seen:
And PG's list:
Looks like Argyle is the consensus #1, and will stay that way until they lose a game, and it's been awhile since they've done that.
Edited to add: between last season and recent scrimmages, my son has been fortunate to get starts against 4 of the top 25 teams in PG's rankings. These rankings are just fun, they don't mean anything, but it's cool to me to see some of the opponents he's faced on the list.
What is really amazing about Argyle is it's enrollment is 800-900 kids/class 4A in Texas (goes up to 6A). They place well in about an extracurricular they do, sports, band, theater etc. I don't know anything about the school other than that. Maybe Russinfortworth knows some about it.
Saw Argyle in the state tournament last year and they have an excellent HS baseball squad with a lot of returnees for 2019. However, they would not qualify for the state tournament at the 6A level in Texas much less win it. I am sure they have and will 1-off some 6A teams in the preseason tournaments but that is much different than playing a 6A district schedule and winning multiple rounds of 2 outta 3 during the playoffs. They are not nearly as talented as the Southlake Carroll, Cy Ranch, The Woodlands and Lake Travis's of this years Texas HS baseball world... Great for them to be ranked preseason #1 but really think Cy Ranch or Lake Travis is the best team in Texas this year and should receive that national notoriety....
