I was surprised by this too...one of the dukes 2way lineman only played 5 games but was first team last year so I feel as he was kind of an add on which means it was 5 each but I see your point ..who was Alliance’s biggest 1st team snub?

I honestly think the development of the Aviators line may have stemmed from the hiring of Ben Bolog. He used to be a Marlington guy if I’m not mistaken. Surprising season from a line that was expected to struggle.

Either Demarko Brooks or Brandon Mazzei deserved to be on the first team. Brooks was a shutdown corner and a WR/TB for the Aviators, he had like a 90 yard TD against the Dukes, Mazzei was a 3 year starter at LT. Both guys were Team Captains.

Regardless it is what is and Aviators got the grand prize and defeated the heavily favored Dukes who all year we’re touted as the “team to beat.” Yet people forget Alliance has won 13 consecutive league games. This disrespect fueled Alliance, much as this stupid “powerhouse thread”

I for one would've loved to see a healthy dukes team against Alliance. No way does Alliance run straight up the middle had Garrett young played. But football is a game of injuries. Noone ran on the dukes prior to that injury. Losing a 270 pound nose guard is devastating. I agree w Mazzei being all league.

I think Mazzei actually started 4 years. Definitely deserving of the honor. But it would’ve been an interesting matchup. Aviators had Leonard, an all conference center, and Oldfield, and all conference d-lineman playing guard.

I agree, the OLine is what made the difference this year with Bolog and the Unckrich gang

Sounds like those two did an amazing job. Alliance looked very physical running between the tackles this year.

Did the Dukes retain most of the coaching staff? Anyone new? Anyone leave?

I thought Marlington was the ringleader of kicking Louisville out of the NBC? NBC could of been saved if Marlington would of agreed to a two division NBC that would of put Louisville, Marlington, Alliance, Dover and Phila in the big school division but Marlington wanted no part of it?

I know for a fact that the NP and Dover talk is all a bunch of malarkey and about as believable as a politician. I personally am a HS football fan in general and would love to see those matchups and would be really excited to watch all those teams play some ball!!!

Are you sure there’s nothing to the story about Marlington and Alliance not wanting to be in the big tier with Louisville, Dover, and NP? The reason I think it might be true is because the first person I heard talk about it was Mike Brown from the Alliance Review. He used to do a weekly YouTube show called In the Huddle, and he mentioned it on that show. So it’s not like it was an outsider talking about Alliance and Marlington, it was a guy that seems like a big Marlington homer and writes for the Alliance paper.

I don't believe the Dukes or the Aviators would back down from anyone. Look at the Aviators non conference schedule this year Hubbard,Canfield, Indian Creek, and Poland. All 4 were playoff caliber teams 3 out of 4 of them are as good or better than Louisville, NP, and Dover. So tell me who are the Dukes and Aviators dodging? I know for a fact that the Dover and NP talk is nothimg more than a bizzare fantasy of some people in Nimishillen township.

If Alliance and Marlington did vote against a 2 tier conference it probably was not a football decision. There are many more student athletes other than football that the administration has to think about. As much as I respect both football programs I really think the EBC is the right conference for both in every other sport. Just look at the boys and girls basketballs standing.. And the wrestling standings. Hopefully the "other" teams will close the gap in football.. So they may not be dodging anyone in football but they certainly feel they are in the best competitive situation in almost every other sport.

Still waiting for a real explanation for what transpired. Hmm former Minerva AD explained it exactly as what is being talked about right in front of me couple years ago. The idea of bringing some teams in and going two tier was explored. While Marlington and Alliance were not the ones to suggest leaving, they certainly were no votes to invite a dover and np and going tiers. I understand that - was their prerogative to vote for what was best for their school.

Minerva was wavering - not sure how the answer was "lets just reform a league and leave one school out" but that is what happened making the schools left in the league look weak to many in the county - the same way many outside the county deem the Fed kinda weak for not adding the obvious team in Massillon. And a picture can be painted of how the schedule has been upgraded and I laugh. The dukes posted an 8-2 record this year and were the 8 seed by .19 points.

I heard the same story but never from an AD. So your source has a lot more credibility than mine. Alliance does play a tough NC schedule but Marlington?? I really think Alliance will be the team everyone is chasing in the upcoming years.. but I heard Marlington added New Philadelphia and Miami Trace to the 2019 NC schedule?

The whole two tier fantasy league putting Dover an NP in the NBC would have never worked out. Tier leagues never work. Look at the AAC out in valley... All of this was proposed by West Branch/Salem Company just so they could dominate the “smaller tier” because they were tired of playing Louisville. People forget Dover was in the NBC and left quickly because of travel. It’s a shame the NBC did what it did to Louisville because after the so called decision to leave Louisville Has done nothing but downgraded the League.

To add your comment about Mike Brown and the Huddle show. There is a reason he was not retained by the Alliance review

Within the coming years it’ll be no surprise if the EBC is dissolved and a league forms with Louisville, Marlington, Alliance, and a few “obscure” federal league teams. I’m sure this would attract teams like New Philly and Dover.

The EBC might fall apart but I don’t think any of the current Fed teams are leaving. Not even Lake or Green. Why would any of them want to leave a very stable league with minimal travel to join something new with longer travel times?

I don't think the EBC will fall apart. There is a lot of parity in every sport but football right now. The girls basketball, for example, has some really good teams and a tight race. All of the other winter sports are tight too. The bottom line is that best fit for Louisville was the NBC. Yes they may have had a few more kids and yes they did win a lot of championships in multiple sports. but the best place for Louisville was the NBC. The league took a huge hit in just about every sport by losing them (from a competitive standpoint). it wasn't a perfect fit for Louisville or some of the other schools, but it was better than being independent for Louisville, especially in the other sports.

EBC is held together about as tight as a runny turd. Only a matter of time until the league members all go their separate ways. No matter I'll still be ready to watch the boys play some ball!!!!

Anyone hear a rumor of Minerva/Carrollton/Canton South entertaining talks of joining forces with Sandy Valley among others in forming a NEW league? I've heard this from a few different people, at least one being a formidable source!!! Just curious....

I have not heard but it wouldn't surprise me that they are at least talking. That would be a good fit for Sandy Valley. The question is what other teams would join the 4? WB?? Salem? United?
