Talent isn’t the issue. I’m not sure on straight talent anyone that Boardman played this year had more talent or at least it was close enough.They could easily beat Riverside. Definitely more talented but yet coaching I'm sure will hold this team back as always.
In overall talent - not on team quality. Fitch is clearly much better overall than Boardman.Slight edge....lol. That's a good one. Best of luck in the playoffs.
For sure. The junior class is loaded and a good coach could easily have this team battling at the top in R5 next year. Boardman’s problem has not been talent. Even with Ignazio they probably could back their way into 6-4 or 7-3 playoff appearance in 2021.I know we've dumped on the district and all but this would be a very attractive job to someone for next year.
How is the Boardman pass defense? Riverside QB looks legit throwing the football. Kind of similar to the Sherwood kid from Fitch. https://www.hudl.com/profile/9257013/dom-lulowSame things as usual - the D has to play better than they have most of the season. Stopping the run is key and if they can’t do that they’ll lose badly.
On offense they need to find as many different ways to get the ball into Thomas’ hands. And most importantly minimize the stupid mistakes/playcalls. They have the ability to put up big points but tend to be their own worst enemy.
Watching those highlights my thoughts are: Boardman is in trouble. I know Riverside’s schedule wasn’t exactly great, but the kid looks like he can make plays on his feet and with his arm. And w/ Boardman’s lack of pressure that’s not going to go well.
