Johnson is a good football player wish him the best in college, I’m sure he’ll play somewhere.

canton south’s Snyder is a good High School QB . Read that again HS QB . He would have been QB3 in EBC this year .
Other than DeShields getting and IAA offer and possibly zurbrugg, they are all very good high school quarterbacks. I read a while ago about Hillyer playing at the next level, he was a phenomenal high school quarterback- where is he now wb fans? Not being q smarta** either. I want to know where he is and if he is still playing.

Saw an article in the Salem news. Feature photos of Hillyer and Caserta at Marietta. Deshields and Hillyer are both proof that Cooper’s offense thrives with athletes like those two. Both have very similar passing abilities. Deshields is more of an evasive runner as Hillyer would welcome running through you. The WB Back up Qb was very impressive last week he stepped in for Deshields and that kid showed grit and didn’t miss a beat.

Deshields was offered by Kent yesterday.

DeShields is an amazing quarterback and deserves all of press that that he gets. I am equally impressed with Hillyer. That team was not good his junior year and I believe they were 2-8. They changed the offense and he really lead WB to a pretty big turn around. That kid was a really good high school quarterback.
 
56-48 South over Beaver last night. Poochie Snyder had 339 yards passing 2tds, 256 yards on the ground with 5 tds. An insane game. Could we see another EBC matchup in week 14?

Are you saying that Snyder also, had 256 yards rushing, or the team had 256 yards rushing?

Zurbrugg was offered by them first, he’s betta
He is a good one, better? Worse? Who knows but a kid doesn't get scholarship offers from any level unless he can play and the college is confident that he can be successful in the student half of the student -athlete

The Canton Repository has an article PAC-7 sets time line to add new league members. Schools interested to replace CVCA, who is leaving after the 24-25 school year. The excepted school would start for the 2025 - 26 seasons. Current schools are Canton South, Fairless, Manchester, Northwest, Orville, Triway and Tuslaw. I wonder it Minerva or Carrollton are giving consideration. Would they add both? If so and one or both leaves, would this be the end of the EBC or reopen the door for Louisville? Their program is in disarray right now.

I have it from two very good sources that Minerva and Salem are rock solid when it comes to the EBC.

Minerva does well in every sport other than football. And the travel is better in the EBC so it makes sense. I have grown to like watching EBC games. Hopefully our very successful middle school football teams will translate to competitive varsity team n 2-3 years.

FYI not many, other than a few bleeding hearts here and there, really care about or want louisville in their conversation
Not the EBC, Not the PAC

They are a D3 school in football and in the larger divisions for other sports. They are not a fit. They had several years being larger than most in their league. seems now may be the time they are on the smaller side and that is what we are seeing with the pseudo Fed sched.

Shake things up a little:
Minerva to the PAC
Alliance, Marlington, West Branch, Salem, Poland, South Range, Struthers and Hubbard The new EBC
Niles, Girard, Lakeview, Champion, Brookfield, Liberty, Newton Falls, Labre the new TAC 8

Those would be good leagues honestly

Yeah, I agree. Public schools are cyclical. WB lost to Minerva in 2019. I don’t know how long Louisville dominated, but apparently it was long enough for everyone else.
I think from 1999-2017 they either won or shared the football NBC title 10 times. Ironically, they went to the state championship game in 2007 and didn't win the league. They did win the league in 2013, 14 and 15 and did not lose a league game in those 3 years. they were really dominate in multiple sports those years. They were voted out and did win not the league in 2016 and 17 and was out in 2018. Marlington won it 2016 and gave Louisville it's first league loss in 3 years and Alliance won it in 2017 and i think Louisville finished 2nd both years. They would not have won the league in recent years either. back in the late 80s they could not compete in the Federal League, they left for the NBC and built a very nice program. Now they are playing a Federal league type schedule and really struggling.. The best fit for them is the EBC/NBC - a lot of people really don't miss them at all, saying their fans are arrogant.. However, IMO they need to be in this league.

Lville needing a league is not the EBC's problem. Having 6 teams may be a reason for some to push the panic button. Looking at the league football wise, I see there being advantages with just 6 teams.
1. Its an even number and allows them to have no floating bye week like the FED has.
2. 5 league games allows for two extra OOC games. Essentially allowing more harbin points to come into play for the league. Every team in the league theoretically could have a winning record and also make the playoffs, which isn't as big of a deal as it used to be.

The schools are finding plenty of games for weeks 4&5 and they are winnable games. I see the EBC being patient and adding 2 schools eventually. I think they are trying to bring in a duo that are natural rivals as the existing pairs really work for them. Min v Carr, Mar v All, Sal v WB
