another dumb question for you all from a rookie. Are there any program enhancements that coach Specht wants or have been planned coming off the state title? Things like a video scoreboard, another scoreboard on the other end, college type 25 second clocks in both endzones, the large donut tackling dummies that D1 college teams have, etc. With the euphoria of victory donors will line up to fund that, or is it a matter of obtaining permission from the president, which hopefully would be easy to obtain coming off the title?

This is the last year for the event

Countless of StX alumni have contacted Specht wanting to make large donations specifically to the football program but the administration won't allow it.

5 Best Bomber Defenses Before 2004

1994: Finished 9-2 losing to Colerain in the regional final 9-0.
Led by a fantastic group of LBs in Mike Marshall, Brad Heizman and Chris Hoffmann. The secondary was pretty good too with seniors Mike Gusich (Illinois), LeMar Marshall (Michigan State, NFL) and J.D. Beiting and a Defensive Line of Matt Lodder, Sal Gilene, Brian Merz and Manny Chavez.

1992: Finished 13-1 losing to St. Ignatius in the state finals 24-14
The team was known for it’s explosive offense but had a solid D led by DLineman Kevin Glaser, LBs Bryan Hoffmann, Dave Neal and Greg Reichert and a secondary led by Trent Allen and Andy Chiodi along with the super sophomores (Gusich, L.Marshall, M.Marshall) who were seniors on the stellar 1994 defense.

1999: Finished 10-1 losing to Dayton Wayne in regional final 37-14 at Welcome Stadium.
The top players on defense were LB Eric Scheidt Sr., LB Matt Vogele So. (Miami OH), LB Brian Heizman Sr, DB Pat Kelly Sr, DB Paul Kuhns Sr, DB Chris Stoll Sr., DB Joe Stephens Sr., DE Mike Ferguson Sr, DE Pat Ross Jr (Boston College) and DB Nick Lyle Sr.

2001: Finished 13-1 losing to St. Ignatius in state final 37-6

Womack Sr., DE Nick Larkin Jr. (Boston College), LB Andy Edeburn Sr., LB Matt Vogele Sr. (Miami OH), S Mike Hurley Sr. (Yale), LB Matt Dooley Sr., S Michael Graham Sr., CB David Kelly Sr., CB Sean Kelly Sr.

1981: Finished 8-3, 1st playoff team in school history, lost to Moeller twice 18-7 in the 1st round of playoffs

The 2017 offense and defense have a chance to rank with the best in Bomber history.

Offensively Wolf and the wide receivers match up well with the best Bomber aerial attacks of the past (1985, 1997-2001).

Next year's Offensive Line of Kirby-Deters-Dirksing-Mohn-Kronenberger (and/or others) will average 6'3"/265lb and be FOOL worthy.

A rushing attack combination of Hundley, Payne, Wolf and Fox will push the offense game average above 400 yards.

Defensively the front 6 will rival those of the 2004-2009 era.

The defensive secondary and special teams are definitely the biggest question marks entering camp but coaches Specht and Banker will work their magic.

He graduated with me in 1994. The last team he was on was '93, which finished 7-4. I remember because he was a backup RB in '92 to Kevin Ritter. Rasso/DiGiacomo (sp?) changed him to NG senior year because of his size, speed and strength. If you don't believe me, I have the VHS of 1994 and Lodder is not mentioned when they go through the seniors at the end.

On a side note, I noticed on the Coach Info, they mention Dave Allspach as a graduate of '95. He was also '94.

Buried the lede with that one, ReLoad!

Why the end of the Skyline Chili?

The best thing about that event is that it gave us a great game with a home atmosphere without having to guarantee a return trip.

The Crosstown Showdown is going away? What the hell for? It was a huge event, enormous participation and you'd think it was a money maker being that games were from Thursday through Saturday. Lots of teams involved, and in most cases, gave teams a chance to face each other who never do or never have.

Were they actually losing money on the event or was it a combination of a lot of things?

2017: The year of the end?

The end of StX football lack of back to back state championships (since 1923)????
The end of several existing StX football passing, receiving and scoring records????
The end of Mother of Mercy High School (since 1915)?????
The end of the Skyline Crosstown Showdown (since 1998)????
The end of Coach Specht on staff at StX (since 1993)????
The end of Elder participation in Division 1 football (since 1989)?????
The end of the democratic party????? (since 1828)
And finally, and most sadly, the end of ReLoad’s participation, and thus domination, in the Yappi forum (since 2009)????

I'm stoked to see what this season holds for us. Schedule is still grueling, no matter who we replace certain teams with. We need to look for some other good competition from around the country. So we were stomped by St. John Bosco and Good Counsel in the past several years. It happens! We still have had impressive wins over Prattville AL, Don Bosco NJ, DeMatha Catholic MD, and close losses with teams like Lakeland FL in OT

I'm psyched to see what Wolf and company can do along with the defense.
