Jack Borgerding is out for the year for Mariemont. Tore his ACL week 9 of football season.I would think Prater or Gentry would be the 2 front runners for POY.
players to watch
Clay from Finneytown avg'ed close to 13 a game last year.
Gentry from deer park (heard the got G from Taylor as well he avg'ed 10 a game)
Bennett Weiherer from Taylor has had a great run athletically for the jackets this year (on the soccer field) he avg'ed 10 a game last year
Prater and walker from Wyoming (walker only a Junior avg'ed 13pts a game last year)
Lopez from IH still running the offense for the football team he avg'ed over 12 pts last year.
dont know much about reading per sids stats their top 7 pts scorers from varsity last year were seniors! so i am sure they will be young
same with Madeira Sam Solinski is the only guy in their top 6 last year that wasn't a senior.
I think Mariemont could be the sleeper in the league and surprise alot of teams their top 5 guys return this season! Jack Borgerding avg'ed 11pts
Lackney and megowen both avg'ed 8. i see them increasing that win total from over last year!
DP is not the favorite...it’s Wyoming..DP brought in bodies but no blue chippers..Munson was a bench player on a very mediocre Bacon team...losing Athie and Wise is rough...that is 40 points you need to replace..DP played crappy iso ball last year and went nowhere...Gentry is not a coach by any stretch...he is a recruiter..real coaches teach skills and concepts...he just wants his shrimpy kid to dominate d3 ...
I'm guessing it wasn't an issue with the coaches at Taft. The OHSAA probably wasn't going to approve the transfer. I don't have any info on this, just my speculation.That’s funny...I guess the coaches at Taft expected him to work hard and actually play team basketball...time for the OHSAA to burn the rule book...no sense in having rules if some schools blatantly ignore them with no consequences
Well this gets even more confusing then. The only way that this could be happening then is if 1) his family moved back to deer park or 2) he’s gotten some type of exemption to live with someone else (Gentry? another player?) in Deer Park.then out of my sheer ignorance...how does he "transfer back?" he spent the 1st q at taft
Which that story is ABSOLUTE BULL$HIT anyway...because he would have the senior exemption to finish his senior year if they move.Well this gets even more confusing then. The only way that this could be happening then is if 1) his family moved back to deer park or 2) he’s gotten some type of exemption to live with someone else (Gentry? another player?) in Deer Park.
Here is a direct quote from the Enquirer article in August
Wise said his family had to move out of the deer park school district, making him ineligible to finish out his career with the wildcats.
“It was pretty tough; I cried about it,” Wise said. “Coach Gentry and coach Reggie Revels have meant a lot to me. It’s probably the best coaching staff I’ve ever had. I cried that I had to leave them. It was very tough. You have to live in the district to go to school; that’s the rules. I no longer live in the district.”
that would actually be very fun to watch!It would be funny if Prater, Walker, Lopez, Lakney, Solinski, Weiherer and Borgerding all decided to play together lol...but the difference is those young men have integrity and enjoy representing their actual communities, families and schools. That is the real CHL.
HAHA Bennett's dad is a NUT. yea he was a wyoming guy which is cool CHL in his blood!Agreed..,Bennett is a great kid and has represented Taylor with pride and class. Been watching him on the hardwood and pitch all the way through ...got to know his Father who is a great guy and fun to be around ( a Wyoming grad) . Kids like him and the others I mentioned are the true CHL...play their guts out against each then shake hands and are buddies off the court/pitch/field...not some recruited bs elite team. Our champions are real teams...including the Deer Park team from 10-12 years ago that won the league...with kids that actually grew up in Deer Park.
I've heard this too. I heard wise actually practiced with Taft a couple times and didn't like the way they rolled (i.e. worked hard). How is he eligible to play for another school if he actually practiced with taft??I've been told by more than a few people that him and Mitch had issues...
