Pretty sad when the biggest school in the NWCC and a D6 school none the less is struggling to field a team. Hopefully that's not actually the case.Elgin appears to be struggling to field a team this year. Northmor has posted on the OHSAA Open Dates site for Week 1 this year.
I just received an email and it looks like Elgin will have enough players to have a team. We will see as the season progresses, if this holds true.Elgin appears to be struggling to field a team this year. Northmor has posted on the OHSAA Open Dates site for Week 1 this year.
I just left the Windham vs Rootstown scrimmage, Windham started off slow; but picked it up as the scrimmage went on. Looked pretty good considering we only have 17-18 players, they should be the favorite to win the NAC again this year. Can't afford injuries, skill players tho are still good!I read where Coach said the Bombers only have 18 players and he hopes they aren't in the same boat as St. John by this point in the season.

8 man is completely different. Different field dimensions, different personell packages, to do that in the middle of the season would throw everything off completely. No way I would change my game up to accommodate them, especially if there was another opponent out there. 4 hour trip is daunting though.If they're already worried about having enough players by then why not just still play the 8 man game?
