These Lucas kids have come so far. Many do not know their story...
I'm guessing that based on the past marion will use their standard 3-4 with their 2 outside backers sometimes playing standup ends in a 5-2. They also play 5-3 against wing T with an extra nose tackle with one of the backers playing a standup defensive end, or all five as down lineman with 3 backers and 3 DBs. Marion is very good at giving opponents different looks which is very hard to adjust against as an opponent.Thanks for the info, I can tell you are very passionate about your team. Enjoy the week, it is always a great week of expectations leading up to the big game.
Other Marion posters can do a better job on the overall stats for Marion's players.
But here are the basics of Marion's team.
Pro-style offense, will vary from QB under center 2 tight and 2 RB's, to shotgun formation with 4 wideouts. It is usually some variation in-between.
First year starting QB is a senior - has had a very good year as a first year starter.
Tail back by committee - 3 kids that all run hard, Otte has more speed and elusiveness
Full Back - Hard runner
Offensive line is on the smaller side average size 210 to 220, but very solid
Recievers - Huelsman has the best hands, good size, Otte has more speed.
The Offense had new starters at almost every position, so they started the year very slow, and have greatly improved.
Like Lucas, defense and special times have been great for Marion this year. I am not going to guess what our standard defensive front will be against the wing T. The coaches will modify the front accordingly. The three teams that were able to score on Marion did it through the air. Anna, a prolific running team, who is playing in the D6 final has put almost 40 on everyone, except Marion.
Weather looks great, hope for an exciting competitive game, and a Marion win
Great video. BTW - I still got chills from that QB keeper late in the HP game. I bet #3 himself couldn’t believe he pulled it off; that, and the go-ahead TD. Wow!These Lucas kids have come so far. Many do not know their story...
He amazes me. He is so talented, yet so selfless. So very humble and team oriented. He could have had huge stats somewhere else, but he is a Lucas kid. He does his 1/11th the best he can.Great video.

We have 5 churches and 1 bar. No fast food either. We have a meat market that processes deer. A lot of deer killed in Richland County. In keeping with the bar theme, a lot of beers killed too.There is not a stop light in the entire Marion Local school district nor any fast food places. There is a lot of Catholic churches and drinking establishments.
As a lifetime Whippets fan we have to celebrate Richland County getting to the Finals. 3 teams now in 2 years have made it to the final 4 and now 2 have made it to the Championship.Thanks so much for all your support! I hope the Cubs and Tygers can prove you right on your picks!
wasn't there another video last year made too?These Lucas kids have come so far. Many do not know their story...
When they want to, they can throw. Believe me. They chose not to.I know the QB has an offer to pitch. They didn't have much success throwing the ball much against McDonald round 1. Do I think they can do so consistently if needed? I do not.
Just giving my opinion as a neutral party. You know I pull for you guys. Just this week I think ML is head and shoulders above everyone. Hopefully the cubs can keep it competitive, do I think it happens? Most likely not.When they want to, they can throw. Believe me. They chose not to.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, brother. GO CUBS.Just giving my opinion as a neutral party. You know I pull for you guys. Just this week I think ML is head and shoulders above everyone. Hopefully the cubs can keep it competitive, do I think it happens? Most likely not.
It would make sense not to throw if you beat everyone by 30 plus running like Kirtland. But Lucas has been in half a dozen close games, losing two of them. So I am wondering, can you pass when you are forced into passing situations, or do you complete passes when the other team has the box loaded for the run? Because in all of the close games/loses your offense was held to 14 to 21 points, so the opponent was stopping the run.When they want to, they can throw. Believe me. They chose not to.
