i actually heard it was a possibility for week 1, supposedly West Liberty is not renewing Graham, at least i heard on here. Greenon has two open weeks next year to start, i’m not sure what CBC schools have open weeks. i saw Graham will play Buckeye Valley in week 2.Alder I would give the ever so slightest of edge to. London will replace a few key athletes, but when you like up double tight and hammer the ball downhill you can stand graduation. We will find out if the Falcons are for real hosting West Liberty Salem wk 1 at home. Woulda loved to see a Graham v Greenon matchup. Two best small school Q's dueling in the warm weather would be great
Bellefontaine and Coldwater series is a good move for the Chiefs - can't wait to see this happen! Will be a great crowd and provide an early season gauge of the team's capability if Coldwater continues to stay at the level they have been at.Was told Bellefontaine picked up Coldwater in 2022-23.
IL plays Anna week one which replaces Marion Pleasant. Was told that the Rockets did not have much at the JV and below levels but it will be very difficult to replace Jacobs. Kid is on tough nut and put around some more talent and a better system he would have had monster numbers.
CW's 8th grade has not been real strong in JH but then again the JH records in CW typically is not a great indicator of HS success in the past. There are times there are 60-70% participation rate at those levels and the coaches get enough PT for all the kids. The HS coach a couple of years ago at a welcome home thanked the JH coaches for one main thing (i thought he was going to say fundamentals, etc) but it wasn't. He thanked them for keeping the JH kids playing, having fun and keeping the numbers as robust as possible so when they get to HS he has as many kids as possible to build the team.Bellefontaine and Coldwater series is a good move for the Chiefs - can't wait to see this happen! Will be a great crowd and provide an early season gauge of the team's capability if Coldwater continues to stay at the level they have been at.
I haven't heard this yet. I did see the Falcons schedule the Barons week 2. Should be a step up from Southeasterni actually heard it was a possibility for week 1, supposedly West Liberty is not renewing Graham, at least i heard on here. Greenon has two open weeks next year to start, i’m not sure what CBC schools have open weeks. i saw Graham will play Buckeye Valley in week 2.
I agree.Its amazing that these teams can't field a freshman team - Bellefontaine?? Alder has had to pick up teams all over Central Ohio for freshman games/JV games.....they've played WJ, Johnstown, Licking Valley, Covington, etc.
Will there be some abuse of it?I agree with the sophomore thing - the problem is, I have seen a lot of abuse with that. It hasn't been just the not-as-talented ones going down to play, it's been some pretty good ones. Oh well. If a coach feels he needs to do that, than so be it.
Alder has been having a lot of freshman play JV and it gets them good experience. They also started five sophomores on varsity, so those kids have a head start as well.
London gets Burns back from injury at RB and Alder returns both JT Keith and Jackson Izzard (and started at times five sophomores off a 12-1 team) so it should be interesting. ...I agree, there is a sizeable drop off in the KT after those two.London and Jonathan Alder will be 1 and 2 for the next few years with London the favorite for 2020. Both schools have coaching, talent and numbers. Everyone else is playing for 3rd place in the Kenton Trail Division.
