What happened to the controlling dad and robot QB?

can't think of his name.

He moved to florida or something?

Asking here because i thought they lived in Boardman.

thanks

Seems like the Jennings kid is going to play all over the field. Except RB. Will not be there. Will play some QB, some WR and DB. Will be good to have that kind of athlete on the field.

Some updates from the local network previews...

http://wkbn.com/2017/08/04/tough-as-...rdman-offense/

http://www.wfmj.com/story/36066253/m...rdman-spartans


Boardman will apparently be running a no-huddle, hurry-up offense. Looks like O'Horo is going to be the centerpiece of the team. He's going to be playing some corner as well it seems, which I think might be a bit crazy, especially if the offense is going to be very up-tempo. It was emphasized that he spent lots of time honing his skills this offseason and going to different college camps. I expect lots out of him at QB.

Other players to look for in addition to Jennings it seems will be Melewski at WR and FS, Bob Toth at center, and Tino Arcuri on the offensive and defensive lines. Ignazio seems bullish on the junior class and expects them to step up this season. First two games should hopefully get most of the kinks ironed out before the brutal stretch of @Jackson, @Steubenville, and Moooney to end the first half of the season.


The game at Ursuline in week 8 will be played on a Thursday night, and televised live on MYYTV.

O'Horo is one of their better athletes, he needs to be on defense. Jennings can spell him at QB.

Kind of perplexing in such a big school that the QB is playing both ways. ESPECIALLY if they're running an up tempo offense this season.

He will be the best offensive and defensive player on the field for Boardman. He is a ruthless hitter on that side of the ball.

Agreed, that he will be. I'd like to see him run the ball some more at QB.

Hearing that Jennings is eligible to play right away which is great news. Also makes sense as to why the coaching staff is comfortable with O'Horo playing defense this year. Anybody able to confirm this ?

Good news. But it makes sense if he lived in Boardman the whole time he lived in OH.

I think that is the case. As mentioned above, scrimmage tomorrow @ home vs Poland and then on the 18th also @ home vs VASJ.

O'Horo does well for us in wrestling - state freestyle champ this past spring and made the cadet 15-16 year old national team - helped Team Ohio earn all-american honors - 3rd in the country - kid is tough as nails - competes at a high level - rare kid - reminds me of mario graziani when he wrestled for us - both tough and athletic!

Might be a long year for Boardman. The starters portion was not at all a good showing for Boardman. Bad offensive line play and limited run game. Not very much YAC on pass plays. I can see the offense ending up like last year's and being stagnant. Just not seeing playmakers out there.

On defense they had some guys in position for run stops,but struggled with tackling. Pass defense was ok as far as having guys in position and had a few easy picks dropped. And Kosco is a solid QB for Poland, so it's expected he'd make some plays.

Poland definitely had better line play and size up front both ways. Which is concerning for Boardman considering they are going to play several teams who I expect will have much bigger lines than Poland.

Let's hope it was just a bad showing. These controlled scrimmages are also sometimes hard to get the best feel on teams, but you'd like to see some flashes of positive play.

Definitely concerned about the run game this year. We are used to having a bell cow back there to carry the load. This may not be the year for that. SV, did that Jennings kid flash at all today ?

Friday's scrimmage..
Looks like a long season in front of them. Told the plays the same/ offensive line struggled QB can only throw dump passes.Still can't throw downfield. How long will the coach last? He doesn't' like to take any heat when his team has problems. Remember all the articles in the paper last 2 last years (blaming his players) Can only hope for a change..

This really should be a make or break season for Ignazio...

That being said, these scrimmages seem to be rather non-predictive of how the season turns out. They had their way with Poland and Howland last year for example. Other years I remember them struggling with East and Howland and putting in a good season.

But, hearing these things about playcalling, etc, are a cause for concern. I wonder if a basketball on grass style of play is the only way around the poor O-line play. Which baffles me considering Bob Toth's track record as an O-line coach. But it all starts from the top.

Also the second scrimmage looks to be at home next Friday at 7 vs VASJ.... Curious to see how that goes. They apparently scrimmaged well vs Chardon and had Wooster today. I'd like to see us scrimmage a bigger school but they are playing some of the better D2 schools in these scrimmages.

There's no real threat at the skill positions to help the QB besides what Jennings can do I guess. Surprising to see the O-Line struggle as 3 of the kids are returning starters. It is what it is. Ignazio is on the hot seat as far as I'm concerned.

So how many times did each team score? It does not matter much but I am curious. Is Poland for real this season? A lot of doubters. I think they will contend for a league title.

It looks like Ohoro's dad sold coach Ignazio a" bill of goods on his kid as a QB" and if he stays with him it's going to cost him his job.. Hope he's smart enough to replace him before the bottom falls out this season. Next scrimmage he should try someone else at QB.After today's game he has nothing to loose ...

O'Horo is not the problem, just stop. Make yourself look like an idiot. Your son must be 3rd on the depth chart at QB. Sad.

Looked like Poland's first team scored once, Boardman's got into the red zone but stalled. At least that's what the Scouting Ohio album seems to show. And like SV said, Boardman dropped 2 INT's, probably 1 of which is a pick six in a game if it was caught on the drive Poland scored. I don't know about Kosco but it seems as if Boardman was protecting O'Horo in the scrimmage.

And no, O'Horo isn't the problem. Last year the coaching didn't help him out. Seems like they're trying to at least do that this year, but who knows.
