I know a legendary coach who had his name leaked to the most storied program in the country and I have no doubt that affected his decision to not take it.....Yeah, I leaked 2 earlier and regret it. You hate to cost people jobs or deter other candidates from applying.
Exactly, but not how you are describing it. Putting a name out there for someone to possibly uproot their family for a low paying HS FB coaching position? Not a good look. College/Pro well when there is career changing money involved then that is the cost of fame.Leaking starts at the top, not here on Yappi........ If some coach wont take a position because of leaking, probably would'nt want that coach anyway. We are talking HS football for crying out loud.
I agree. It helps with transparency side of things, too. Are you truly evaluating and ensuring those are the best candidates?My advise to any head coach, if your worried about where your at, don't throw your hat in the ring in the first place. Im not trying to out anyone applying for the job, but at the same time as a tax paying resident, I dont believe we leverage that kind of power. But it sould be public knowlege of who is appying ...........
I would say those are a pretty good group to be in the conversation. I only saw Urbana and North Union for the MR so I can't really weigh in on the MR side.Predictions? Lets say top 4

MR Offensive P.O.Y?
MR Defensive P.O.Y??
KT Offensive P.O.Y?
KT Defensive P.O.Y?
Trying to get gauge for who brings what back.
MR OPOY- **Trevor Moran (NU), Kanin Stoner (Ben Logan), Brady King (Graham) Ben VanNoord (Northwestern)
MR DPOY- **Zach Millard (NU), Nathan Dewey (Northwestern), Ethan Young (NU), Lane Mefford (Indian Lake)
KT OPOY- Jackson Izzard (Alder), JT Keith (Alder), Antwuan Burns (London), Khaleb Comer (London)
KT DPOY- Seth Anderson (Kenton Ridge), Braden Burner (Tecumseh), Thad Huff (London), Jackson Izzard (Alder)
Yes I agree Izzard has D1 size and athleticism for a MAC school he’s a great player. Any chances he chooses basketball over football?I would say those are a pretty good group to be in the conversation. I only saw Urbana and North Union for the MR so I can't really weigh in on the MR side.
Burns & Keith are coming off season ending injuries, hope they can both bounce back and be at there best when the season starts.
Drew Mitch from Shawnee could be a name to watch, but I don't know what kind of supporting cast he will have or if they plan on using him at QB or WR.
Izzard from Alder has the potential to be a D1 player in football IMO.
going into last year I think basketball was probably more on his mind at the next level, but I think that mind set has changed. He‘a a game changer on both sides of the ball at the HS level.Yes I agree Izzard has D1 size and athleticism for a MAC school he’s a great player. Any chances he chooses basketball over football?
Unless he manages to get some magic from the kids that Marratta wasn't getting KR won't be very good next year. They lost a good senior class that had at least a half dozen 3 year starters who won more as sophomores than as seniors. Lots of potential in that school thoughGood hire for the cougars...Interesting to see who they get week 2 and coach Daniels has a massive opener with Mechanicsburg. Who takes over for the 4 year starter Lemen?
2 crossovers now in CBC country with the addition of NU and London. KR has Graham and Northwestern...........in other words stop VanNoord on the ground with NW and get AFTER Graham's Brady King, they'll be justttttt fine. KR needs to drop Ben Logan week 3 as a "non-league game" and beef up a bit. I agree though some building to do before the Pioneers and Red Raiders need to worry.i don’t think KR will be BAD at all. i’ve seen talent there. but at least a year away from competing with Alder and London. can probably win all 3 crossovers and 1-2 of Bellefontaine, Tecumseh, and Shawnee. maybe a week 2 win depending on who they schedule. building for 2021
