St. Vincent-St. Mary Fighting Irish Football 2018

There is a new coaching staff at the helm and, as usual, a formiddable schedule in front of the St. Vincent-St.Mary Fighting Irish, but with very few lost starters to graduation (Walter FS/WR, Younger SS, Ervin OL, Taggart DL, Olson WR, Lattea FB) or transfer (Jones DB), an extremely talent laden and battle-tested SVSM squad should once again be one of the stronger teams in Northeast Ohio and a contender for a deep D3 playoff run.

Any Fighting Irish posters care to share insight, staff holdovers, expectations, changes in offensive attack, "players to watch", etc., etc. for the coming season?

Good luck to the Fighting Irish this season!*

*Except week five, of course

Not that I'm aware of. Terrence Keyes, the squad's starting RB and leading rusher from 2017 (when he was a soph), returns (as far as I know).

They did have a freshman RB who was an absolute stud transfer to Barberton.

Heís back....as well as the sophomore QB and sophomore WR. The Irish will have 15/16 returning starters from a year ago.

New coach has been very well received. Has done a nice job putting together a nice coaching staff together with a mix of new coaches and coaches from the previous staff.

Expectations are high. Tough tough schedule....but the Irish will be ready and look to build on their momentum from last season.

Should be an interesting year on Green Street with a new staff.

Hopefully, that huge offensive line will be better with the seasoning they got last year.

Not entirely sold on their staff yet as one of them made a fool of himself on here 2 or 3 years ago.

What about WR Jalen Ross? I heard he transferred out because he (or his parent) was unhappy with his basketball playing time.

For every positive review I've heard of the new coach/staff, I've heard just as many saying the opposite. No of us will really know until we see it on game days. All they need to do is stay relatively healthy and get in the playoffs, region 9 is a walk through to the final 4, and D3 in general has been neutered by CB.

But a big loss for the football team. He would have been a returning starter.

The admin/board and athletic office at STVM need to show some competence for once. Therefore, with their poor decisions (hires, indecisive decision-making, not listening to people who make sense) STVM is at a plateau.

Iím hearing The Agent decided to jump ship and coach at a college. STVM just saved two losses on their schedule due to him leaving

Not sure a team coming off a season where they played in the D3 state semi finals has plateaued....especially since 75% of the starters were underclassman. Team has made the playoffs for 9 years in a row.

Their basketball team just won it's 8th state championship. Track, cross country and wrestling are thriving. Hell, a young football team made it to the final four. Poor decision making and incompetence don't lead to those results.

Plateau or program has peaked? I am not sure there are many schools that can boast more success than SVSM and their football team will be the favorites in their division this year. I am a Hoban fan and have to defend the Irish on this one.

STVM is missing Andy as AD. He was on top of things.

Rumor has it that the OL Coach has quit and there is some rumbling among the Alumni about the Coach. Don't shoot the messenger.

The new oline coach has left for an opportunity with a college team.

Coach Nickols is a solid hire and the players are receptive to his discipline and accountability. The Alumni needs to Support the new coach. The Overall numbers are down but the incoming Frosh Class (2022) have good numbers. Someone needs to allocate funds to upgrade the equipment for the weight room. This needs to be a priority if they ever hope to compete with their cross town rivals. The Irish will compete for region 9 and a shot at the D3 state title. This program is not ready to play the likes of Iggys or Ed’s. The basketball program has done Football no favors losing a pair of potentially starting CB’s (Jones & Robinson to East)) and two year starting WR 6-3 200 Jalen Ross to Canton Mckinley. The Class of 2020 is down to single digits. Since the transfer rule is now in effect a program can’t fix numbers through incoming transfers.

Sounds like the boosters need to get on the ball with some fundraising.

Single digits in the junior class? Ouch.

Alumni will get on board when they see success. That's the downside of going outside of the program for a hire.

Terrance Keys picks up an offer today from Kent State. Would expect additional offers to come his way. Great kid.

Wow, I don't know about all the transfers or feeder systems work in Akron, but is Hoban eating your guy's lunch lately or what? Still a lot of talent to go around apparently. Good luck Irish.

Plenty of talent to go around....you should know better than anyone else. St V has beaten Massillon 4 of the past 5 years (all at Massillon) and have won 2 state championships during that time.

And ST V 0-5 over past 3 years vs Hoban while Hoban has won 3 state chips. I think Massillon May have ST Vís number this year. Planning on seeing that one.

And St V is 8-5 against Hoban in the last 13 games. Series is 21-21 all time.

The tide will turn again as it always has. Thatís what makes it such a great rivalry.

Itís a shame you canít appreciate the history the 2 schools share. Not sure what St V ever did to you...but the hate and negativity you have for St V is pretty apparent. Youíre the type of fan that turns a fun rivalry into hate. Seems to be what motivates you. Hate on St V...Everyone against Hoban.

Since you love to throw around numbers and facts....St Vincent St Mary has never won a football game or state championship in football while the coach or the school is/was on probation (Fact). You can whine all you want what Hoban did was not a big deal or minor (excuses..OHSAA says otherwise)....but the bottom line your ďchipsĒ come tainted...with an asterisk...Outside of Hoban...your ďchipsĒ mean as much as Barry Bonds home run record means in baseball.

And now your QB will have to sit out a game(s) because your school broke the rules again. I know...he was in 8th grade..thatís not the schools fault. If that were the case he wouldnít be sitting.

Looking for another great season for the Irish. Trying to make the playoffs for the 10th year in a row and take another run at a state championship. Massillon will provide a great early test for the coach and team.
