Poland looked pretty damn big up front vs Boardman. I wouldn't worry too much right now. Let's see how they play next week vs VASJ.

I don't know what to expect of Howland this year, but there SHOULD be plenty of time to iron out the weaknesses.

Score was 14-0 Poland although true starters only played one full series. (10 plays + 20 yards in down and distance) Based on what I know and O Line for Poland that was out there to start yesterday, Poland line will legit average 280-290lb.

Is that a good 280 or a sloppy 280?
I don't remember Poland being that big last season.

Either way for Poland to do well vs Boardman says something.
Either A. Poland is good. And contending again. Or
B. Boardman is not very good for a school their size.

Wouldn't say sloppy..... Think the shortest is about 6'0 and at the rest 6'2, 6'3. Polands 6'4 TE was not dressed yesterday but expected to be back this week for scrimmage against Girard. Would expect Poland to win some games this year.

Poland should be much better than last year, I agree. Boardman doesn't have the size up front they used to.

Boardman 2017

This could be a good boardman team this year if they live up to what they are supposed to be with a talented QB leading them

Boardman will be good this year you will be surprised. Poland will have another bad year they lost a great kicker and the kicker coming up can't make a extra point

If Poland underwhelms again, it won't have anything to do with their kicker.

Poland does have plenty to work with. If they don't compete in the AAC, something is up... injury to Kosco, bad coaching, player mutiny, etc... something.

After hearing from some people and seeing some video of the scrimmage, I feel better about this team than I did before.

Anybody go to the scrimmage last night vs VASJ ? I couldn't make it but heard the team looked good. They had Jennings at RB and he and O'Horo looked good out there together. Offense moved the ball. Anybody confirm this ?

I didn't attend but heard they looked pretty good. I think it was 28 or 35-0 at half. No idea what final was.

Obviously wasn't the best opponent for our size of school, but at least they had a good showing against a decent D-5 school. Boardman was supposed to play a D-1 school (can't recall who it was) but that school had a scheduling mix up and resulted in the VASJ scrimmage.

As long as the play calling isn't disastrous like the last couple years, I think the offense will be fine. Still a tough schedule...

Scrimmage can be viewed in full on VASJ's football facebook page. Linked to the coach's twitter account as well (thanks for this!). VASJ scrimmaged Wooster last week, so I might go back and check that out for comparison. Wooster is a playoff contender in our region since the realignment so they might be a good barometer. Their coach seemed interested in challenging scrimmages.

Looked like game conditions except each team would take over at the 35 regardless of kickoff distance. Boardman's were good, frequently got to the 10-15 yard line, much improved from last year. Punting was solid as well. Anyhow, VASJ started and went 3 and out promptly. On Boardman's first play #5 (Ieraci? though he wore 6 last year and there is a #6 in the secondary) went the distance on a simple handoff. Boardman didn't score on its 2nd (9 yard 3 and out, all passes) and 3rd (fumble on 1st play) series. Looked to be a decent amount of balance. All other possessions the ball was moving with ease. Jennings seemed to get action at running back every other series or so, but mostly played wide out. Didn't see much of O'Horo on defense if at all. Maybe fewer 2-way players this year which would be nice if true. VASJ had 2 scoring opportunites. The first came after Boardman's fumble. They picked up a 1st down with a pass over the middle and got to about the 20 but couldn't advance from there. They had a similar chance a few series later but couldn't get any closer. Score was 28-0 at half.

I think even if Boardman struggles a little bit offensively at times, the defense should keep them afloat. Also the punting and kicking game (though range seems to be about 30 yard FG max) looks to be a lot better. We were getting torched giving teams short fields last season.

VASJ is D5 and isn't a Mooney or Ursuline team that plays up, couldn't come up with something more competitive? Other than confidence, how does this help the Spartans?

Pretty sure it was a last minute deal.

Good to see the kicking game has improved a little bit. Haven't seen a decent kicker with a strong leg on this team in about 6-7 years.

Originally Medina was scheduled. They pulled out and we had trouble filling that 2nd scrimmage spot. SJ's stepped up. I don't think they were exactly our 1st choice.

According to Vindy Blitz, Boardman also got another transfer from Youngstown East. He will play DB.

While I know Boardman is a huge favorite in this week's game against East, I caution the Spartan's fans to look completely past East. I hear from someone who saw the East v Maple Heights scrimmage that East's defense was swarming to the ball. Their offense was very lackluster but their running back made a couple big plays on his athleticism alone. I still expect Boardman to win by a few TDs, but don't be surprised if it's close into the second half.

Won't make it to Rayen tomorrow, but I'm sure if the weather is nice there will be a good turnout. Wonder if many of the original East High grads (especially those who may have moved to places like Boardman) will be out with their Golden Bear pride...

I don't see a score like last year, I expect East to be more competitive.

Good to see East had a good showing against Maple Heights. I know they did well against Firestone, but Maple is a few steps above. Gotta be better than last year's week one game

I think East gives them a good half.
After HT, I think Boardman's defense shuts em down.
Defense could even give the Spartans a score or two.

I think it'll be closer than many think.

Has Boardman improved enough this season to actually score on Steubenville this year? Shall we start a poll?

Son have you watched any scrimmages.Your best QB is the Ryan boy. At least he makes good decisions and can throw more than 5 yard swing passes..

Watched both scrimmages and you need your eyes checked because you are sadly mistaken. O'Horo is one of the better QB's in the area. All you do is come on here and rip the kid. Get a life.

Lol. Is it safe to come down and watch a game down there ? Do I need a bullet proof vest or anything ?
