Here are the Top 30 teams in the 2019 Pre-Season OSI, the Opponent Strength Index, recently approved by the NJSIAA for use in seeding playoff teams this season.  Each team’s OSI represents a move of 1/3 closer to a midpoint of 60, based on their final Born Power Index rating from 2018.  Assuming the OSI formula sticks, in future years the pre-season OSI would be based of the previous season’s final OSI, including all playoff games.  Area teams in bold.
