I thought each team supplied their own balls for offensive play?

They do.  As well as kicking.

Each team provides a minimum of 3 balls prior to each game to be used for their respective possessions.  They are pressure tested and marked prior to the game.  They are marked with the team’s initials in colored marker.  Yes there is a way to “tell what ball is in play at any given time.” LV is playing with LV’s game balls just like MC is playing with MC’s game balls 99% of the time unless the ball person happens to send the wrong ball in and it’s not caught by the officials.  There is also no such thing as a kicking ball.

The LHAC was terrible this year. Richland is the best team in a very weak ( this year) conference. Richland will lose big. No doubt about it.

Not sure what's going on here about footballs. But in the playoffs, all teams have to use the Wilson GST football. The PIAA provides a game ball for each team. During playoffs, teams don't use their 'own' balls all the time. The officials keep balls on each sideline to keep the flow of the game going. So LV would've used MC footballs and vice versa.

this is an interesting thought process, because the AFC East sucks, that means the Patriots will never be able to win a Superbowl

Teams are required to use the Wilson GST 1003 or 1005. If teams check different balls they will be rotated as usual. In rainy conditions they will likely be rotated as usual. Your response is conditionally true but not necessarily.

BG, Richland, Forest Hills, and Chestnut Ridge will all likely be in a district championship game, I mean maybe that's weak by their own standards I suppose.

Yes Richland, Ridge, BG are the best 3 teams in the league. FH is nothing special and westmont was average at best. Everyone else was terrible.
Getting to the district title game in a four team field isn’t that great of an achievement. FH will lose.

The Patriots didn’t go 4-6 last year
