On paper it is St. Johns and then everyone else.

Whitmer has a very deep and talented Jr class.

Feel free to chime in on anyone else.

Without an injury, SJJ goes undefeated. Vincent Williams (VCU commit) and Houston King (Georgetown offer) will be the two best in the league. Plus they add a true point guard in Ryan Christy (a CCHS transfer) and an athletic 6'6 big in Jaden Mckinstray (Fremont transfer). SJJ hasn't been down to Columbus since 2009 and this could be the team.

Any Lima Senior transfers in this year?

St. Francis lost Graham and Burnam, but have Harris and Wells (both Jrs) along with several other guys who have been through the battles.

I understand their freshman class is very strong too.

We made strides in football and will make strides in basketball.

You posted your team had made strides in football. Thought it would be helpful to point you to some current conference discussion so you could join in. If you could only come up with that one assumption, might be good for youto know of that site. Hope you enjoy the website.

Not saying we are great or even good yet, but we have a chance in about 8 or 9 games this year. In the past 5 years or so years we only could honestly say we had a shot in maybe 2. A 5 win season will be a success and then shoot for .500+ next year.

I know, I know but with where we have been baby steps are ok with me.

A shot in 8 or 9 means you are counting on a few league wins or at least competitive games. Hope you are right.

I don't think Clay was .500 with the Achter and both Taylors. Just saying.

Last time they were good was McDougal, Nelson, and the younger Taylor who ended up getting hurt. Made it to TCL Final 4 (2005?).

The current group of kids and dads would say "who?" as they dream about their 8th grade title and are clueless to their history and surroundings.

I've never seen a district scream that they do not have the kids to compete yet allows two 6'5" kids to walk right out the door without a peep.

Someone please tell me Clay put Stritch back on the schedule. Please.

Unfortunately I think they are not on the schedule and either is Woodmore, so there goes an overtime win for moral support for the Eagles.

Like Irish said, the last time Clay was truly competitive was 2005, and even still I am not sure if they beat the big 3, Scott, or Libbey.

Looking at that 2005 team, you had guards in the 6'0-6'2 range (Graham, Nelson, Mcdougle), Achter at 6'4, 6'6 W. Taylor, and a younger Z. Taylor, who I believe was a 6'6/6'7 freshmen. Saying this, Clay does not have a kid on their current roster that would have started on that team, but Eaglersize would not buy it because Clay allegedly beat Stritch in a scrimmage last week.

This is all relative to the current wave of Oregon dads and grandads who have been looking forward to "next year", for the past 5 years.

Years are an estimate.

That would have been Wes Taylor in 2005-6. He played basketball at Owens and a D2 down south. I think Zac Taylor 2008 (University of Toledo basketball) before a back injury was a year after AJ Achter 2007 (Michigan State and MLB baseball). Derek Spencer 2006 (BGSU, MLB draft pick) and Jordan Kovacs 2006 (University of Michigan and NFL football) were also on one of those teams. Drew Kuns 2008 (BGSU baseball) was a three sport 1st team all city player.

Even with those kinds of athletes I am pretty sure they didn't go .500. A lot of fun to watch though. I remember a game that they had 7 or 8 dunks in a win vs a solid Scott team.

Is this the same SJJ that is going to be in Columbus this weekend to scrimmage Upper Arlington and Springfield?

That was a fun game. I went to that game just to see the dunk contest. I wasn't disappointed. Achter lit it up and had 4-5 dunks himself.

Couple all league football players on the basketball team. Boys compete hard. Could be 1st team in 2 sports next year.

Any more scrimmages?

I think he is talking about Novak. Decent kid. 6'2 WR on the gridiron. When the Eaglesrize (I always love the "z" in place of the "s" by the way - gives it a bad-azz feel) will Novak be their post man this year? Do the Eagles have anyone taller?

Is the short pissed off guy still the coach?

Wagonfield? He should help down the road, but will take some lumps this season.

SJJ grads Gabe Kynard and Harrison Riggs nearly led Lake Erie to a big upset at BG last night. Kynard had 28 to lead all scorers in the 109-106 loss.
