2020 St. Ignatius Football

Ignatius used to get its players from the CYO teams in Cuyahoga county. Now the CYO programs have gone into the toilet, many schools no longer fielding teams. Ed's, while also getting some players from the CYO league, now has focused on the Cleveland Muny league for gettting some elite players. Ignatius has not done this, or if they have, not nearly to the degree Ed's has.
Ignatius had 36 seniors on its 2019 varsity roster. Here is a breakdown of the grade schools the 36 attended:

St. Christopher - 5
Lakewood Catholic Academy - 4
St. Raphael - 4
Our Lady of Angels - 3
St. Bernadette - 3
St. Thomas More - 3
Gesu - 2
St. Jude - 2
Holy Trinity - 1
Incarnate Word - 1
Metro Catholic - 1
Notre Dame Elementary - 1
St. Ambrose - 1
St. Angela Merci -1
St. Bartholomew - 1
St. Charles Borromeo - 1
St. Dominic - 1
St. Mark - 1

Incredible honor, and shows how spoiled we’ve been with coaching talent. The only other school with 3 coaches on the list is co-ed Mater Dei in Santa Ana. Ignatius has 60% of the Ohio coaches that made the list.

That said, nothing short of 15-0 will be acceptable to the fans, alumni, and benefactors of the school across the street from Wendy's.

Hey, with that pronouncement, the official football season has been launched. Hopefully there will be games.

Ignatius officially #1 in Strength of Schedule. That is very surprising to schedule so tough again this year. In Region 1 you have to schedule to secure a playoff spot.

Where can we find the total list of "rank of schedule" for Ohio?

Congratulations to all the above mentioned. I wish them all a very enjoyable and healthy retirement. I do not know any of those people. But I have spoken to Mrs. Jennifer Fight on the phone numerous times over the years about getting football tickets when I new they would be difficult for me to get since I live in Erie. She was always so amazing and helpful. So to her I am very grateful. Knowing she is retiring, I have to send her my last email to her. Thanks for this update.

Kyle might need to call it quits, he had a great run but younger coaches with more drive are taking over. It is really a different game than it was back in the 1980s, he needs to step down, he had a great run but the run is over. Teams are way more talented than his and have better coaching. St. Ed's Mentor and Hoban to name a few.
YOU ARE A GOOF!!!

You say that "Kyle may need to call it quits". You put a whole shoe store in your mouth with that misconception.

So glad you gave your opinion on this because I don't give a damn. Go worry how your school will win 6 CYO games and hopefully make the playoffs in D5.
