Boardman 2017

Schedule:

@ Youngstown East

Howland

@ Massillon Jackson

@ Steubenville

Cardinal Mooney

Canfield

@ Warren Harding

@ Youngstown Ursuline

Austintown Fitch

Ashtabula Lakeside



As for the team, they lose some key contributors including Koontz and Adu-Poku who carried the offense. O'Horo the QB will be a junior and will need to take a big step forward. They have some lineman returning and the freshman class from last year was talented so we should see some of those sophomores in action this year. Looking forward to it!!!

Hopefully the offensive playcalling isn't atroicious like last year. Looking forward to seeing O'Horo get a bigger workload on offense. I think he'll be ready. Melewski will be a 3 year starter at safety, quite a few sophomores saw time last year. How many kids are out this year?

Pencil in the Jackson game as a big one. I expect them to be 2-0 headed into that game and Jackson will be built around Pallotta's arm. Will be great test for our pass defense.

I think the freshman class was pretty big last year so hopefully numbers will be up. Excited to make the drive down to see the Big Red in their place. Always a fun atmosphere.

I don't understand why Boardman offense always looks so anemic

Play calling has been horrible the past few years.
Boardman should be a lot better if they can get get that offense in gear.
Plenty of talent in Boardman.
A shame the numbers have been so low.

Million dollar question. Last year every pass was oh just throw it up to the 6-5 Koontz and hope he comes down with it... He's gone now so they better develop something different.

Is Ignazio still calling the plays? That could be why...I heard they made a change in who did the playcalling toward the end of the year, but I can't remember if it was Ignazio giving it up or taking it on...

He was in 2015, but not last season. Any new assistants?

Numbers really haven't been bad the past few years. They've been over 60 or so. Considering Boardman is only graduating 300 or so now, that's not bad. I've heard the #'s are pretty good again this year.

The days are gone of 80-90 regularly out at Boardman.. We are down 30% in enrollment from those days plus football #'s are down at every school with all the concussion concerns. Boardman also seems to run into kids specializing more in one sport. They've had some good athletes not go out because of this.

I would guess numbers would be about the same as last year like SV said.

One thing that hurt Boardman a lot last year were its lackluster special teams. The punter who did very well as a sophomore (40 yd+ average boot) was hurt all of last season and the kicker was just a freshman. I'd expect both to be much improved this season.

Agreed on kicking game. I'd expect it will be much improved this year.

I've heard people are pretty optimistic overall. Biggest concern is oline. Which I was hoping might be improved with 3 starters returning. The OL was pretty bad last year though and had OHoro on the run a lot. If the OL can just be solid, OHoro can do some big things. I think he can be a Jeff Ryan/Tom Zetts type QB for us.

Agreed on both. I think they started 2 sophomores on the line last year so they should improve. Also, O'Horo is athletic and a good runner. I'd like to see a lot of read option type of plays where he can keep the ball and take off. Any idea who the RB's will be since Adu-Poku is gone ?

Pretty sure I saw Coach Patterson at practice in a video Dana Balash posted to his twitter yesterday. Wonder if he was just visiting or if he's coming back? Would surprise me if the latter.

Surely he's not.. Who knows though. They could use a new play caller I know that.

Yeah the Jackson game will be big. It was a turning point last year in the season. The wrong way for the Spartans.

Easily could see boardman being 4-2 after the first 6, possibly 5-1 with the lone loss to the big red. But confidence and offensive play calling will be huge.

Not that it matters about difficulty but I'm astonished any AD would sign a contract to play a road game at East. Have we ever played a city school on the road before? At least since the 60s...

Is the East game a friday night at Rayen ? I didn't know if that stadium even had lights since they renovated it. I remember Fitch playing them on a saturday afternoon.

I think they have lights now I'm not sure 100 percent. That game will be over by halftime anyway

They do have lights. But it's a waste of time playing that game. I'd like to see a school like Green added to that slot in the future. East barely brings any fans to Boardman anyways. The days of Chaney filling the visitor stands at the old Boardman Stadium are long gone.

Fitch has played East at the new Rayen Stadium twice:
-Saturday, 10/11/14 @ 1pm
-Saturday, 9/24/16 @ 1pm

Every match-up beforehand (2007-'09 and '12-13) and in the odd years ('15 and '17) has been at Fitch.

...I agree, this is a bad game for the Spartans to put on their schedule. East is a D2 school that will win what...1 possibly 2 games this year. I'd like to see Boardman schedule someone like Massillon...great draw!

Easy can beat niles and lakeside but probably nobody else.

Who's going to carry the ball for Boardman this year ? They've always had that feature back it seems like. Graziani, Adu-Poku the last 2 years. Big question mark in my mind.

Why would it matter if Boardman was at East? Since its been decades since Boardman was away against a city team, don't you think it's time that it happened? What would make Boardman any different than the other local teams that played at Rayen recently. Canfield, Howland, Harding, Poland, Fitch, Hubbard, Niles all played there recently. Do you think the stadium was rebuilt just to host an occasional Senate league team?
