Who wins this one?
I've always wanted to see them face each other. And it would be a perfect addition to the schedule. It would make a good swap with Belmont or Wheelersburg or the current week 1 opening. I think a second GCL-coed team needs to step up since Alter said no thanks, but maybe Massie is a better challenge than any of them. And an NCL team should be added as well. Two OCC teams would be good also - the local news folks would love to see more of those.How about Hartley and Trotwood-Madison start playing in the regular season? Trotwood will have some spaces to fill because the GWOC is bailing on them.
QB Fleming can run the ball. RBs Parker, Sawyer, and Evans are pretty good. WRs Kenny and Saunders get some decent yardage on sweeps. They'll spread it around if they need to. Against Granville, they didn't need to. Against Jonathan Alder on the final offensive drive, they didn't need to.Watching the Bishop Hartley vs Desales game, other than Jalan January who else does the Hawks have?
The offense has some nice blocking schemes, but nothing so complicated that a smart defense can't figure it out. You load the box inside, they can beat you on the outside. But anyone with the speed and discipline to play sideline-to-sideline and deny the edge to Hartley will do well defensively.Only in 2nd quarter but not sure why Desales doesn't just stack the box. January looks like a nice running back, but I would think you would need more than one running back to make it this far in the play-off?
Hartley has multiple weapons on offense, but if one thing is working in a game why change it. Hartley has nearly 4,400 yards running and January has 1988 yards of that. We have a dual threat QB, and lots of speed in the back field like #4 M. Sawyer has 569 yards himself and # QB Fleming has 735 yards. We can pass when we need to, QB is not super accurate but when called upon he performs.Watching the Bishop Hartley vs Desales game, other than Jalan January who else does the Hawks have?

Not even close. Trotwood is high level D1 talent playing D3. Saying Hartley will beat Trotwood by two scores is equivalent to saying Hartley world beat Pickerington Central by two scores. Trotwood is pretty close to that level. Good luck though.Hartley wins by two touchdowns pulling away in the second half.
Was wondering when you were going to show up, now that your beloved Rocks have been eliminated. Going to start with your region of death, beating undeserving farm schools, can’t compete with a team of athletes like TW? Anything is possible this time of year. Except for Coffman winning a title..
Not only coulnd't pull away from Jackie Alder agricultural HS but needed some heroics to win . hmmm Pull away from Trotty W? All match-ups are different but sorry that was a bad take
If Trotwood can keep the penalties and turnovers down, and defense can contain Trotwood will win. If Clinton-Massie keeps the penalties and turnovers down and defense can contain Clinton-Massie will win. If John Doe keeps the penalties and turnovers down and defense can contain John Doe will win. That’s really the formula to win any game. The question is can they. Hartley hasn’t played a team as talented or as good of a team as Trotwood yet this year. However, I think there are just a few teams that can beat Trotwood in D3 and Hartley is one of them.Hartley keeps the penalties and turnovers down and defense can contain Hartley will win. Hartley has played plenty of teams with D1 talent and beat them still. All respect to Trotwood Madison, but Hartley has yet to reach their potential. This will be an awesome game between two titans of D3 and this can go either way. Several things could happen:
1. Defensive game low score that will come down to the last drive of game.
2. An offensive shootout
3. One team blows the other out.
