Hmmm, makes me wonder if Triv and Rotsky shook hands after Mentor's last second FG beat Euclid this year.

Seems pretty classless of Triv to air things out in that manner.

Is he a controversial figure in Cleveland? He certainly doesn't come from your typical coaching background...being a successful financial advisor for Morgan Stanley. Will he ever stay at a school long enough to build a legacy there or will he just continue to go from one East side of Cleveland program to another?
This is all your fault! LOL.

Was Rotsky the coach at Chanel when the infamous school bus incident took place?

If all that is going on at the highschool than I would expect the guy to get $hitcanned soon by the Euclid A.D. Then all this will go away.

Can anyone from Mentor confirm if this is true? If so it makes Triv look like a clown.

Being facetious?

Obsessed? Yeah. The kind of guy that sees time running out? Yeah. Selfish? No.

Only wins on talent he recruits? Don't know, it's kind of beside the point. Doesn't seem to be his overall driving motivation.

Read to me like a man who "get's it," even more impressive given he never lived it. His words didn't come to me as someone whose goal was to win at any cost. Read to me like a guy who was sacrificing to teach young people who'd never directly viewed outside world success, how it can be achieved.

When you grow up "in" the neighborhood, where there is little success, it's easy to think people like him, people from "Gates Mills" have it handed to them. To a point, there's no denying the advantage and there's a certain amount of made luck starting ahead but that can translate to anyone from anywhere, if they're shown the possibility. We have these debates all the time, those that think it is "easy" to succeed." It's impossible if you're not shown a way. If the parents have never seen it, don't know how to teach it, doesn't mean they don't love, sacrifice and care for their children. It just means they don't have the experience and a skill to help their child move up. A man like this comes in and helps them is lunatic?

It's terrific that a man like this would come in where he's out of place, not of the culture or the neighborhood or the educational environment and put it on the line to at least try. This is what a "coach" does. No one puts in more time for less money than the coaching staff at a high school. If that's "lunatic," then so be it.
Yeah he and Ted Ginn are saints
Not sure what point if any you were attempting to make nor why you brought another coach into the discussion? I don't think Sainthood is a requirement nor a reality be it these or be it St. Iggy. These are people making a difference.

Now in the case of Coaches Kyle and Ginn, yes I can see money being made, though I doubt that the motivations. This guy is already rich, why in your negative opinion is he coaching in these schools as opposed to ones where he could be making business connections or other concrete profit?

I know only that article, which someone thought reflected badly on him, where's I saw positives. You seem to know otherwise, so, what's his nefarious goal?

My point is they make a "difference" for kids who can make a difference for their team. They aren't out recruiting the 130 pound kid that plays in the band.

Its self serving and people want to canonize them for it.

Supposedly Trivisonno was speaking on behalf of ALL of the other GCC coaches. Not sure who picked him to speak or if it was his initiative. I know there is no love lost between those two. I heard the story from a very very reliable source with inside information of the meeting. Also there are rumblings but I cannot confirm that things between Rotsky and the Euclid AD are not as rosey as they were in the past. Seems to be his MO. I would love to see both gone actually.

The wrestling program was pretty highly regarded. Did Chanel basketball finish with a strong batch of student athletes ? Track team solid ?

Actually a reverse effect at Chanel, to be fair.

Many of the wrestling group were also football players brought in thru Graham's program over the years.
No effect either way on BB ,m basically Childress was the only BB/Fb player. 1-2 track guys were also fb players, so at Chanel it wasn't a factor either way, he benefited from the wrestlers for sure. No other sport there actual suffered.

Not the case at the schools after.

No response to your crap about a priest vs JR, pathetic!

I would say that if one guy who coaches one sport, who is not in the building during the day, destroys the reputation of an entire school, that's on the school's administrators. Kind of a "lack of institutional control" thing.

Everyone always brings up this one incident. You know why ? It's because they have nothing else. It was an isolated incident

Your coach is a scumbag and there are tons of incidents

And you are going to say Triv screams at refs ? Rotsky complains to refs every other play. In our game this year the guy was repeatedly on the field. He delayed the game at least 7 times.

Most whining and tantrums I've ever seen. So Euclid fans should be the last ones to bring up temper tantrums or complaining

Perhaps you misunderstood my post. I wasn't looking for sports participation overlap among individual athletes necessarily, but whether or not the same shortcomings that you bemoan also existed on the basketball and track teams as well.

The character of Trinity HS seems to be evolving. Perhaps there is a coach there that has disagreed with you that you will later choose to blame, but I know others will blame select administrators or our Governor and state legislature.

Thanks for confirming that you don't know a dang thing about La Crosse.

Next time you see him, ask him how many extra push-ups he would scream/command to a dumb-founded DB that slipped up and audibly mumbled, "I can't believe he's actually a priest...". There's nothing wrong with being tough or loud or even a bit profane as far as I'm concerned. It's football. Being a hypocrite is another matter.

As far as the cheating accusations go, Rotsky has so many haters that it's pretty difficult to believe that it could go unchecked for long. So many seem willing to shine a light on him that little could remain unseen. You may get your "I told you so !" moment some day, but you should really be wondering how it has eluded you for so long. He must be an evil genius to hold you horde at bay for so long now

Do you have any inclination to answer the rest of my previous post ?

Not sure what I ever said to be a Mentor hater - but whatever. I guess saying a team has a horrible defense (or telling the truth) labels one as such. That does not change what I heard happened from a coach on a staff that was present at the GCC meeting.

I don't know how often this happens or what will come of it but Euclid is getting an audit of somekind from the OHSAA. I don't know yet if it's because of something that was brought to their attention or if this is just standard monitoring. Does anybody know if this happens at other schools and if so why and how often.
