Joe, I asked a very close friend who has a Senior player on the team about JT.
Here is his exact response: Officially he can practice next week. I'm not sure anyone wants him to with a full ride to Cini on the line. He also said Many guys coming off of injuries and back on the field. O-line has some nagging injuries .

Thanks for the insight. Definitely a tough choice for JT. Tough when you have so much on the line but also want to make a run at something that was so close last season
You said the OC came from Mohawk. Ritzler's OC was a Findlay guy as well. You positive he is not the same? Spent last year at Mohawk? Just curious because he looks the same (big taller guy) and his concepts look the same.

Ok, who signals in plays? Ireland? It looked that way?

I think Ireland is in the box. Good chance it’s Matt best. Who in reality should be the oc. Guy was the oc at Kenton with the mauk brothers

Ok, reason I ask is because last night I saw one guy signaling and I was watching on TV. I know that everyone in the TRAC from Toledo used to know Findlay's signals. The old OC used to stand all by his lonesome and he had the simplest signals in the world. P-burg looked like they were going to the ball on the snap to me (as if they knew what was called before it was called). Just saying, between us.
Are there any upcoming freshman that will get some playing time this year. I heard good things about the running back from lake view?

He is very good. There are a few in front of him at RB I believe but I can see him getting in the field on defense first. There is also a CB/WR that is going to be a great one that will play this year. Also 1 or 2 linemen that will contribute.

I’ve heard of a upcoming qb that will be a freshman. Would he see playing time on the field?

As a backup probably. The starter is a soph.
Talked via IM with my friend , Here's what he said about Paul. They are still good friends , Paul was tough as hell, Had a few problems and had to leave OSU after a few years. Paul still lives in Toledo area so you might be able to locate him via a social media outlet.
Those guys from that 74-78 era of OSU Wrestlers are very tight to this day.

Thanks for the info. I may send him a friend request on Facebook. I saw his page out there and he has posted a couple of pictures of his wrestling days at Stritch. Had not heard he ran into some problems down at OSU - but that tends to happen a lot. I don't remember him as being a particularly studious type of guy, but that was before High School when I knew him.
I came across the Ernie Simpson post and I am searching for any information on dates he was at some of these schools. Do you have any information to assist me?

I think you sent this to the wrong person. Ernie Simpson?
Who is your source that said Peterson put up about 30 points in the Federal League's tournament championship game?

Probably the Federal League thread. Someone posted a video of highlights from the middle school championship.
Gabe is still behind Jess Adamson's 63' 5 3/4" put from 2013 at the Midwest Meet of Champions, but I'm pulling for him. Someone I know who saw his 62-10 @ LaSalle says he expects 65-66 feet this year from Gabe from what he saw.

I could not find the list and thought 62 would have hit the top 25. I am pulling for him
One of my son's friends was a D1 1b this year. Already in the transfer portal. One of his complaints had to do with widespread use of PEDs. Wanted nothing to do with it. Is getting out and going JUCO down south.

Seems like a common theme in college that the coach wants the players to put on weight. Some take shortcuts and other prefer to work. My kid put on 20 lbs by eating tons of protein and hitting the weights hard. PED use goes back a long way and there really doesn't seem to be any testing at the D2 level. Good for your son's friend for doing the right thing. Hope your son found a place to play this year.

He is pitching for a Juco in Illinois. It was a perfect fit for him. I am a huge fan of Juco's
Holland Springfield near Toledo, will be replacing turf sometime after fall 2021 season, also could be looking at turf on infield of baseball and softball fields
It's no wonder the GCLS track records were so screwed up. GHG timing does that meet, so they probably came from Mark. Ross District met is the same way. After last year's Ross meet, he sent me an email saying he was not going to respond to any more of my emails on a professional or personal level

I see now why you sent me that me email.
Hey man remember you told me you had this name a while back, If we ever needed it. I am not mad but wanted to remind you. It wasn't to bad, I guess.

Sorry man, you must have me confused with someone else I'm not sure who you are! What would there be to be mad at?
Hi Chic!..just saw a post that had to be you. I've seen a few of the interviews you've given recently for the Canton repository on teams of the decades and past Stark Co. state championship teams. I have always credited your short but incredibly instructive coaching of me in 7 th grade to whatever degree of success i had later. Good to see you on here and following Stark Co wrestling.

Hey GC what rumors have you heard about Hamilton bball from my old home town??? Did Stewart take the blame for others messing up??
C
CometCountry
Thanks GC--My Oak Hills coach son says the word is Principal and Asst Principal were told to resign---I am guessing it all wasn't on AD Bill Stewart--He took the initial bullets.

My dealings with Bill Stewart have been nothing but positive. Thats how I view people. My nephew is the head football coach, info come from his mother.

I've known Bill since 1978--played softball with him for Chester's Pizza in the early 80's---he is a stand-up guy and would not have done anything to risk eligibility for Hamilton unless his boss told him to go ahead.
Also,
Does this look how it may play out for the Cats?

Hi,
Living out here in the wild, wild West I miss quite a bit.
What happened to Jimmy that he left Struthers.
If there was anything in the paper I missed it.

Thanks,

It was a bunch of different things, stealing money, gambling the basketball money, just a bunch of shady stuff, he’s trying to clear his life up which is good for him, but a lot of things went on that shouldn’t be tolerated. Also the way he undercut savko to get the job still doesn’t sit well with me. I’m pretty involved with basketball and football

Wow, thanks for the recap. Sort of blew me away.
I guess I'm shocked, but I guess this could happen anywhere.
You probably know the politics in Struthers better than most people.
Whatever became of Savko? Any idea?

Thanks,
Tom

He still goes to a lot of the games, I know he wasn’t happy when it all went down but he still supports the basketball and football teams a lot
