Mosports.com Class 1 Pre-Season Power Poll

South Shelby Cardinals  (2013 record, 7-5)

Battling in one of the top small school conferences in the Show-Me state the South Shelby Cardinals are battled tested and prepared once the Class 1 playoffs arrive.  The Cardinals will again compete with Macon, Centralia, Brookfield, and Palmyra.

Rob Wilt will return plenty of experience to compete in the league and rank among the top Class 1 programs in the state.  Leading a group of six returning offensive starters, senior quarterback Brett Threlkeld(5-8 155) returns after rushing for 755 yards, passing for 533 yards, and accounting for 19 touchdowns.  Big things are expected from Threlkeld who Wilt says worked very hard in the off-season on his accuracy.

He will be joined by senior Trace Windsor(6-0 175) who rushed for 1,362 yards and 15 touchdowns. Senior wide receiver Austin Durbin(6-3 165) returns, he grabbed 14 receptions for 363 yards and 5 scores. All-state offensive tackle Ryan Larrick(6-1 265) returns along with juniors Sidney Wear(6-2 215 OG) and Bryce Fifer(5-10 185 OG/FB). 

The experienced Cardinals have great speed in the backfield at the skill positions. "We have more experience and strength on the offensive line this season", commented Wilt.  The line should provide plenty of holes for Windsor who is closing in on the all-time rushing record at South Shelby.

The Cardinals return eight starters on defense and using multiple defensive schemes (4-3, 4-4, 5-3) hope to reduce their points per game from 20 of a season ago.

Many of the top names on offense will fill key roles in the defense.  Threlkeld returns at defensive back, he had 57 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 2 fumble recoveries along with Windsor who had 35 tackles, including 5.5 for loss from his linebacker position. "Our secondary will be experienced with Durbin and  Threlkeld leading the way", stated Wilt.  "We have two middle linebackers that could end being among the best we've had", added Wilt.  Wear and Fifer return at linebacker, they combined for 171 tackles and 7 sacks a season ago.

"Ryan Larrick is an anchor in the middle of the defensive line", added Wilt who also returns senior defensive end Josh Ridgely (5-9 175) and junior defensive end Taylor Foster(5-10 190).

With good health throughout a challenging conference season Wilt feels they will tough to beat in district play. As the line develops, "we can be pretty good for a class 1 team", added Wilt.
