Welcome to Our Fourth Annual Mass Prep Stars and First String Performance Collaborative 2016 Pre-Season Super Team.

Mass Prep Stars and First String Performance joined together again this year to evaluate, analyze and predict some of the top Massachusetts players at each Offensive, Defensive and Specialist position. Our expanded pre-season team highlights some of the top players at each position in Massachusetts football.

After our look at the 2016 Pre-season Offensive Super Team (also released today), we conclude the week with our 2016 Pre-Season Defensive Squad.

It was certainly a difficulty process to narrow down the expanded list this season, as there were many deserving candidates. This season we named a starting first-team and instead of having, second and third teams, we listed the individual players at their nominated positions in alphabetical order after our First-teamers, who are highlighted in BOLD.

Our returning 2015 End-of-Season Super Team members have stars after their names.

The loaded linebacker position leads our 34-man 2016 Pre-Season Defensive unit that includes MIAA, Massachusetts private schools, and Mass. residents playing in New England schools.

You can expect our continued weekly coverage of the top local gridiron stars, as we do player analysis, video highlights, photo galleries, updated rankings and feature columns.

Next up, aong with our athlete coverage, is our first look the Class of 2017 rankings and a look at the Class of 2018 rankings “watch list”.

Stay tuned as we look to provide you with some of the top coverage of Massachusetts student athletes all year. If you wish to nominate athletes for lists and ranking consideration, as well as live athlete coverage, please email massprepstars@hotamil.com
