We played Lima Senior a few times back in the late 80's early 90's.......they were famous for throwing rocks at our bus when we went to their place.....so don't really miss notplaying them anymore.You are correct. That drive was just pounding the ball down the field. Elder could have scored, but knelt it on the last few plays. I have a visual memory, so watching this film that was shot from the other side of the field was a little strange. I remember the drive going to my right, but in this video that drive was going to the left.
I find these later playoff games cool. We played and beat Findlay and Dublin Sciota late in the playoffs in 02 and 03, and then never played them again. Same with Hilliard Darby and Lima Senior. The Darby game doesn't bother me as much since we won, but I have a special dislike for Lima Senior because we never got to get a rematch.
Totally agree.............after we lost to X in 2001 at UC, I thought to myself, "man, that was it.....that was the best team that I could remember in Elder history and we couldn't beat X......we'll never get to the state title game!".......and then, the next two years happened............Nothing will be like the 2001-2003 seasons in Elder football history.
That style fit Elder very well. Part of me wants to see more of that from Elder, but I understand the game has changed and it is hard to argue against Ramsey's scheme.Take notice of how much the game has changed. Ironic, Findlay was a bit a head of the curve with their Spread Offense. I don’t think you’ll ever see the I Formation Power Run type of Football ever again.
Not going to happen. Football is now geared on high powered Offense, which means spreading out the field, and running a lot of plays in an up tempo style. You still see the Power Run game, but it’s modified from the Pistol Formation.That style fit Elder very well. Part of me wants to see more of that from Elder, but I understand the game has changed and it is hard to argue against Ramsey's scheme.
Haha. I have a friend that played on those teams that played Lima Senior. He told me about the rocks too.We played Lima Senior a few times back in the late 80's early 90's.......they were famous for throwing rocks at our bus when we went to their place.....so don't really miss notplaying them anymore.
There were more than a couple seasons where Elder had teams capable of bringing hardware home before '02/'03.I still maintain the 2001 team was better (especially defensively) but just lost two coin-flip games to X.
2001 beat the #1 team in the state three times that season.
