How old are these guys you mention? No one is scared of some 50-60 year old dudes because they played at Massillon. No one is scared of a 20-30 year old dude because he played at Massillon. Except maybe Massillon homers that worship the ground that HS kids walk on.Once again I will say, if these idiots don't think Massillon has won a title "on the field", I would like to see them tell that to the likes of Steve Luke, Tom Hannon, or Dennis Franklin, or any other Tiger that has won a title on the field. Betcha a dime to a dollar they don't have the balls to do that.
To the topic, not sure what the reason was, but missing the extra practices that are available for your underclassmen is severely detrimental.
Good luck to Perry and Massillon tonight! Stay healthy, going to be a slobber knocker!
