Was thinking the same thing.
Think Aurora and Highland might be decent.

I think there is a big difference between Barberton, Aurora and Highland and the other four in the league.

I agree that the league title will come down to these three schools as usual. Hoping Barberton wins their third straight title and has a good run in the playoffs.

That back might not be at Barberton this season, talk he’s transferring because of grades.

So my understanding is that Barberton has a strong array of running backs to take the place of the one that went to Buchtel. Are they from the JV and Freshman team?

Actually Vega (Sr) took it to Highland in week 10 last season as we changed up what they prepared for in the first half running the wildcat, then put Young back in for the second half. So Vega is an option, plus a Full Back (Sr) who runs in the power package. Also heard about a stud from last seasons freshman team that could win the starting job.

Good to hear. This is going to be a really tough schedule this year. Even Norton should be good this year so we won't have many cakewalk games this year. Defense is going to be the big factor to this years success.

The guys know this is a big season coming up and they are in the weight room and on the field getting ready and John Comminsky’s story should inspire them to do more this season.

Whats funny was John was a decent player for Barberton but if you would have told me back then that he would be good enough to be drafted in the NFL, I would have probably disagreed. His hard work has paid huge dividends. Its amazing how the proper off season training and hard work has transformed the Magics back into a powerhouse program.

Barberton needs to rebuild both lines.

A couple SR's two sophs and a transfer that was starting rb on his previous team will keep the TB position well stacked. WR's are loaded also.

LB's and DB's are deep and talented.

The lines may need some underclassman from that super frosh team to step up.

Didn’t hear about an incoming transfer at the TB position?

I spoke to a guy a couple of years ago who was Antonio Pittman's father and who had a younger son coming up through the Barberton junior high system that was a football and track star, tearing it up as a running back at the junior high level. I'd guess he's about a sophomore now. Is he still in the system Magics fans or is he the kid off to Barberton?

He will have a big purple season in 2019

So here is the kid from Copley who already transferred to Barberton and should be eligible for the full season.

Isn’t it ironic that you are taking a potshot at the Massillon fan base when your city’s “official” bird is a chicken?

Real question would be could anyone from this league win a postseason game this year?
