There is simply no comparison to the level of competition and physicality . I have had boys play in both leagues and will attest to that . The ITCL will produce a few tough hard nosed kids that is true ,but if they had to play the tough weekly competition of the NBC/EBC many would sir come to injuries . I have seen this firsthand play havoc even on West Branch over the last number of years .
South Range left to join a tougher league

They now play as an independent. I have heard some coaches and players say that the more difficult independent schedule has better prepared them for the playoffs. They must be correct as they made the state semi-final in football and won the baseball Div III state championship even though they had a losing record during the baseball regular season.

South Range is a quality team. They may have won the NBC in 2017. Those games will be interesting.

South range left the EBC (before they even played a game) to join the NE8 with Poland, Hubbard, Struthers, Girard, Lakeview, Niles, and Jefferson. This year is the start of that new conference, but because of some politics out of their control they have to be independent one last year in football

I donít know who will win, but the point was they didnít back out of the EBC because they were afraid, when they did it to join a tougher conference than the EBC in the new NE8

They joined the NE8 because itís a better geographical fit. As far as they woulda coulda won the NBC last year I disagree. They would have competed but I donít think they would have swept everyone. Alliance and Marlington were pretty good football teams especially at the end of the year.

Valid point, Marlington got beat soundly week one by Poland, they did start about 7 sophomores and it showed. They were deer in the headlights. Would Marlington beat Poland later in the year? Probably not.. but not even Poland would of shut down Duce. As far as South Range goes they made the right decision, not sure they could face the better EBC teams week after week and year after year. South Range has an awesome program, but facing much bigger schools and atheletes week in would take its toll. Really looking forward to the Range Marlington game, should be a good one. South Range can play with the EBC for a game. But like I said they would get beat up physically on a regular basis.

I do not have dates but Alliance has
@ Revere
@ Hoover (jamboree)

and old wildcat, I agree south range is a great program. I too am interested to see the How they do against the dukes who are probably the early EBC favorite based off returning starters

The aviator's have a lot of big shoes to fill in the offensive . Any early favorites . I saw a pretty good size young man play Qb at the Jv level last year. Asume he is in the running .
Did Duce end up play at the next level?

Duce is going to D2 Findlay. Scholarship

Alliance did graduate the house, but returns a couple of skill players and some good defensive players. Both JV Qbís from last year are the favorites, biggest shoes to fill in will be at QB and RB.

Iím interested to see what my Aviators will do, schedule is much more challenging with us traveling to Hubbard week 1 and Poland week 5

This bogggles my mind, Duce is going to Findlay. I cant believe there wasn't a MAC school that didn't make him an offer. And if it's because of size they blew it. Duce was a beast.

He was a terrific back. I couldnít believe it that Akron, Kent State, or even YSU didnít take a chance on him. The Salem game where he ran for 462 was one of the most incredible performances Iíve seen in a HS game ever!
