QB is down to 3 Klare, Nolan, and McCaughey. Whitehouse is full TE and has been working out with them giving the RT spot to Wassler. Still a big question mark at center. Many juniors have been stepping up though from what I’ve been told.Overheard a little it and I am sure some of this is business as usual: most of the Dudes showed in good shape, some better than others; a number of players are working out at different positions; 8 incoming sophomores are working out with Varsity not including QBs; and there seems to be no indications on who is leading the pack for starting QB.
I was thinking the same thing today. Maybe they are being a little over conservative because it is still early in the grand scheme of things and it sounds like they were going to give the kids this Friday and next Monday off anyways for the holiday weekend. So in reality they might only be cancelling three practices. There is certainly no way any school can think they are going to get through the entire season without one of their players getting sick. The odds are stacked highly against you.
Going to have to get to a point where person who tests positive quarantines for 10 days or until no positive test but everyone else moves on or this will never happen.
agree, cause if your kid is sitting next to Billy in school and Billy gets sick your child will now b forced to stay home for 14 days......that doesn't seem much of a school year to meGoing to have to get to a point where person who tests positive quarantines for 10 days or until no positive test but everyone else moves on or this will never happen.
Sheep? Gotcha. How about the fact that every professional sports league along with colleges are testing players in an effort to manage this pandemic. The easy answer is no sports until a vaccine is in place. But if you are going to attempt to play you have to test and have a strategy for managing it.I would think kids being tested positive are because they were around someone that had tested positive so they went and got the test or their parents are just sheep. I am not taking my kid for a test which if he is negative today, may be positive tomorrow. If he was really sick with fever and breathing issues then yes, reason for a test. Covid is all around out there. Prob 25% of the football players have covid and don't even know it.
What I said is that obesity is the number one risk factor for complications from Covid19. I understand that statistically it is still low but lets face it there are kids on the team who are definitely obese (generally stuck at oline). Covid 19 has more serious implications for someone who is obese.Interesting - so you are saying no obese 19 year-olds in Ohio have gotten it yet? Because I know none have died.
Much more dangerous driving on n. Bend at 8a and after practice, 6p than dying/complications from Covid...but if Anderson Cooper was reporting on N. Bend situation, that would be shut down too....What I said is that obesity is the number one risk factor for complications from Covid19.

I understand that the odd are still extremely low but there is still a real risk of serious complications even for teenagers.
Thanks for this. It is nice to read something like this these days!Happy to share information and of course all of this is subject to change. I do think some of the players read these threads so I am sometimes hesitant to post names.
The Offense is being cranked up a couple more notches. Players are being asked to do more than last season and there less tolerance for mistakes, even this early in the practices. Expect more rotation at all positions than what we saw last season. Idea is to keep fresh bodies on the field and snap as many plays as possible. Was told the following by multiple people: QB seems to be a two player battle at this point, OL will have 4 returning starters with a junior and sophomore competing for the center position. Expect to see 9 OL playing during the games with the core getting most of the reps. TE is going to feature an upperclassmen but the Sophomore has great hands. Obviously Vrsansky is probably going to be the feature RB, but there is another junior that will probably be featured along with a big bruiser from the sophomore class.
The Defense is going to have a lot more speed. There are familiar faces at new positions and new faces at other positions. One of the LBs from last season is now playing DL and there are a couple sophomores that simply standout because they are good players and are among the fastest kids on the team. Don't be surprised if you see Clifford out there on Defense in the 4Q, coaches know they have to get more speed on the defensive side of the ball.
Their is no secret the Junior Class is the depth of this team but there are some very talented seniors and some rising sophomores that are going to play significant roles.
