Jackson Wins 7th Consecutive Federal League All=Sports Trophy

Propelled by a share of the league title in football, Jackson went on to win the Federal League All-Sports Trophy for an unprecedented 7th straight year for the 2017-2018 school year.

Jackson_____________124.1
Hoover______________100.0
GlenOak______________89.8
Perry_________________88.1
Green________________85.8
Lake_________________65.3
McKinley______________48.6

Here's an article from The Suburbanite -


JACKSON TWP. A year that included nine league titles, multiple state tournament appearances, several more regional final appearances and plenty of victories came to a close for Jackson with a seventh straight Federal League All-Sports Trophy.

The Polar Bears tallied 124.1 points across fall, winter and spring sports, besting second-place Hoover, which notched 100 points. GlenOak rounded out the top three in the standings, with Perry, Green, Lake and McKinley filling out the final four spots.

In a year with scores of big games, record-breaking performances and exciting finishes, Jackson athletic director Terry Peterson said it’s tough to pick just one most memorable moment.

“It really is difficult to really pick out one or two which stood out from the rest,” Peterson said. “We are fortunate to have many successful programs, and regardless of their win/loss record or how far a team goes into their tournament, it’s enjoyable to see student-athletes compete in interscholastic athletics at a high level.”

Overall this school year, nine Jackson teams won league titles - football, boys basketball and boys soccer (tied for first), volleyball, girls soccer, boys cross country, baseball, boys tennis and boys track - and even teams that didn’t win titles left their mark.

In girls basketball, the Polar Bears reached the regional tournament for the second time in four years and senior guard Taylor Mikesell set school, county and state records, including a 60-point game and 14 3-pointers in a single game.

Football, which capped its second straight playoff-bound season with a share of a league title, won seven games and continued its upward swing. Girls soccer reached the state championship game, while boys cross country kept its string of state meet appearances alive.

Winning a seventh straight All-Sports Trophy is the longest streak in the history of the award and Peterson pointed to a variety of factors in its continuance.

“I believe the success of our programs can be attributed to many reasons; athletes who dedicate themselves to becoming the best athlete they can be and in turn, making their teammates and team better, coaches who give so much of their time to the athletes and program and are on a continuous journey for obtaining success; the support of the parents (and) the school’s positive partnerships which have been developed with the booster clubs and youth organizations in the sports we offer assisting to providing the outstanding facilities and opportunities our athletes get to enjoy.”


One interesting note in regards to the award is the fact that it doesn’t take into account sports the Federal League doesn’t sponsor, but which some schools in the league participate. Jackson excelled in several of those sports, including boys and girls lacrosse and boys volleyball. Boys volleyball reached its second state tournament in three years and both lacrosse squads reached the regional level.

Individual competitors also turned in memorable years, as Victor Marcelli won a state wrestling championship at 182 pounds and Tyler Tolarchyk also reached the state tournament. In track, the boys 4x800 relay and distance runner Nick Regas, along with pole vaulter Max Critchfield, made it to Columbus.

The girls bowling team sent a pair of competitors to the state tournament as individuals, while boys basketball made yet another regional tournament appearance.

While there wasn’t a team state title this season, the overall success of the entire sports program continued, with fall sports contributing the most points for Jackson, 55.8.

Having a wide range of sports contributing to the school’s success is a plus, Peterson noted, but simply being able to offer many sports and give more athletes a chance to participate is important.

“We take pride in offering 27 high school sports to our students and over 50 percent of our high school student population takes part in at least one sport each year,” Peterson said. “Success tends to breed success, so no one wants to compete in a sport who might not be up to par with the others within their same school, so it drives them to become more successful themselves.”

Part of the success sports delivered across the Federal League this past school year had nothing to do with wins or losses. Multiple schools within the league suffered tragedies in the form of loss of life to students, with Jackson, Lake and Perry all dealing with such situations in a short span of time. Two of those, in Jackson and Lake, came during basketball season and both Jackson head coach Tim Debevec and Lake coach Tom McBride noted at the time that basketball games had been one of the first places a large number of people from the community gathered in the wake of those tragedies.


Games became a place for communities to unite and support each other and try to start the healing process.

“Life can sometimes be fragile and sports is really just a ‘moment in time’ in the grand spectrum,” Peterson said. “However, one of the many positives which comes with being involved in high school athletics is that moment of time can assist with the journeys of life in many ways - and at times, for more than just the athletes competing themselves.”

Of course, even as the official All-Sports standings were released, members of the various fall sports teams for Jackson were already will into their preparations for their respective upcoming seasons, the next step in a process that is always ongoing, with one eye on the present and the other focused on continuing the district’s track record of success into the future. Winning and eighth straight All-Sports Trophy will take another strong year, but for now, nearly a decade of dominance rolls on.

Just another example of why they shouldn’t be in that league, they don’t fit in that “country club” lifestyle.

They also went 5-1 in football, since this is a football board.

That's correct.

So, those 5 wins constituted 3% of the 156 Federal League games/matches that McKinley participated in.

Thank you Terrance Tao but since this is the football board we will go ahead and say mckinley has dominated that league, especially Jackson.

I didn't realize how difficult simple math is for those of you in Massillon.

The point was the math was irrelevant but then again this whole topic is irrelevant since this is a football board. By all means continue to ignore the FACTS about FOOTBALL. Jackson can win all the federal league games in bowling and tiddlywinks but can’t win ONE football playoff game. Also mckinley dominates that league in FOOTBALL.

I'm sorry but it's posts like this that give us the bad name and reputation we have across the county. This is quite an accomplishment. Why throw BS like this into the mix? Seriously.

I promised my self I wasn't going to get into this one...

Jackson's playoff record is awful. 1-7. So is their record against McKinley. Even worse was the drought of not even making the playoffs for over a decade. There's no denying it. So there's that.

At the same time, how much better can the other Stark County teams be if they had to share the FOOTBALL FLC with lowly Jackson? Especially McKinley, with 200 more boys in the school.

When was the last time a D1 Stark team got out of the region? Massillon and Hoover ten years ago when it was R2? No Iggy, Eds, Solon, or Mentor. Great accomplishment, and far better than anything Jackson has accomplished, but in HS football that may as well have been 100 years ago.

Realistically, what are the chances any D1 team gets out of the region this coming year? When was the last time any of them even got beyond the first round? The best I see lately is a couple games that were close at the half and a GlenOak win over the mighty Berea-Midpark (no offense to them).

Only thing you can do is try to get better. Congrats on the All-Sports Trophy!

McKinley became a league member in 2004, so that's 14 football seasons as a league member.

League titles from '04 - present:
Canton McKinley - 4 outright ('05, '06, '12, '13) and 2 shared ('11 and '17)
GlenOak - 2 outright ('09, '14) and 1 shared ('15)
Hoover - 2 outright ('07 and '08)
Austintown-Fitch - 2 outright ('04 and '10)
Perry - 1 outright ('16) 2 shared ('15 and '17)
Boardman - 1 shared ('11)
Jackson - 1 shared ('17)

Is that "dominant?" To me, it's very successful, but it's not dominant. If anything, the league's members are normal public schools that are subject to the ebbs and flows of their respective talent pools. Due to their enrollment, McKinley is less likely to hit a lengthy dry spell as compared to some other schools in the league.

http://hoovervikingsfootball.com/federal-league

Incidentally, Hoover's website is very useful, but it needs updated to include 2017, and Perry's 17-6 win over New Albany came in the 2016 regional championship, not the state championship.


As for the original topic, Jackson athletics are in a good place right now. The community established solid youth programs years ago in many sports, and it has yielded competitive teams at the HS level for a few years and counting.

I’d love to know what you consider dominant.
They have played 90 league games and are 69-21 in those games which means they have a winning % of 77%, to me that is dominant and as a Massillon grad it is beneath me to ever defend them but in this case it’s a no doubter.

Subjectively dominant is the most powerful, influential, important, supreme. Objectively if you're looking for a number I'd say 90% or up??? Never heard a kid in my class say "I got a 77% on that test. I DOMINATED it!!!!" well maybe my kids who get D's haha.

Has anyone in Fed history over a 14 year span won or shared 6 titles and also won 77% or higher of the league games ?

I guarantee you no one in Federal League history has ever won the All-Sports Trophy 7 consecutive times. And that was the point I was trying to make in starting the thread.

You have quite a fascination with the Federal League.

Maybe you should have put the topic in another thread since this is the FOOTBALL forum.
No fascination at all, just the usual ignorant posting by you and it’s easily dismissed, look at some of the other posts, mck people wanting out of that league and others commenting on the sports that only parents attend.

Spoken like someone whose football-centric sports mentality precludes him from appreciating a multi-sport league and what it brings to competition.

You'll never have any idea.

Most Fed teams have had pretty successful stretches. Even lowly Jackson nabbed 6 titles in 15 years. Probably Perry in the 90s and Hoover in many decades had similar winning percentages. The Bulldogs have no doubt been the best team overall since 2004 though, they should be very proud.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federa...ue_%28OHSAA%29

Unless you bandwagon, you're statistically not likely to be a graduate of a football state power. And if you are lucky enough that your alma mater is a state power with 120 years of history, great! Doesn't mean a thing at the end of the day though. It's all in how you approach it. Sometimes waiting a while for a big win or league championship makes you appreciate it more.

7 or more league titles in 10 years wouldn't be a bad place to start if you ask me. 6 in 14 is good but hardly unprecedented.

Heck, Hoover won 6 league titles in their first 14 seasons in the league, '68-'81.
Perry won 7 league titles from '91-'00.
Louisville won 6 from '70-'81.
Hoover won 6 titles in 7 seasons from '97-'03. Over the 7 seasons after that, they picked up 2 more titles to make 8 in 14 seasons.

Did you have to click on FOOTBALL to enter this thread ? If anyone wanted to read about girls bowling, softball or hopscotch we would click on that topic.
