Highland Football 2010

The season is drawing near. Intra-squad scrimmage tomorrow (Saturday). The Hornets should have a competitve group this year. I think this year will play out similar to last year with the Hornets vying for a playoff spot in D2. 6-4 or 7-3 may be good enough if they can beat a couple Harbin cows. 2 out of three in non-league games would be a step in the right direction. We will have a better idea after the Nordonia scrimmage. IMO, the key is keeping Scholle healthy. Without him, I think Highland would stuggle to go 5-5.

I did not see the Elyria Catholic practice, but I heard the Hornets struggled.

Depth is a serious issue for the Hornets. I can see why our coaches would be getting upset over late shots in a scrimmage. They can't afford to lose anybody. Based upon what I saw in the intra-squad scrimmage, if Scholle goes down they will struggle to win any games in the SL. I would be careful with his reps in these two upcoming scrimmages. I would sure like to see Koran step it up the next two weeks. I would feel much better about this team if someone other than the QB can become a serious threat to opposing defenses.

koran looked great yesterday, saw the holes well and shed some tackles while keeping his feet moving. Koran has great speed not a Maslowski speed but enough to get the job done. Only saw one series where they stalled. Scholle had some good runs too. Gonna be a good one two punch it looks like.

Koran was better against Brecksville than he was in the intrasquad. Let's hope the improvement continues.

Has the offensive line looked like a strength as expected?

Kicking was an adventure at the Nordonia scrimmage. Defense looked really shaky in the secondary with one of the starting corners out with an injury.

I learned the kicker is 10th grader Joe Simonis.. He's a pretty good athlete and has a nice leg in soccer, he should become a reliable starter as he gains some experience.

Well wasnt impressed with our boys against nordonia at all. If they dont get some leaders on that team we are going to be in for a long season. No excitement at all on the sidelines except for a burst from Justic. Besides that there was nobody even tryin to pump their teammates up. Have to have that energy on the sidelines or your just goin through the motions which is what we looked like. IDK whats up with that maybe nobody wants to step up and be the man and lead this team.

That will be an issue. Seniors have to do their job.

We need to get our injured DB back on the field ASAP. Either that or go with more cover 2 until he is healthy.

I heard Rocky River has a good QB back from last year and a a receiver who can take it to the house. Hornets are going to have to score some points to win this one - I say more than 28.

With Scholle going down this week, I would imagine some serious changes are coming for the Hornet's offense. The back-up QB is only a sophomore and not nearly as mobile. I would think that the Hornets will have to get away from the spread/zone read stuff and go back to a more a more traditional power running game. I would move Bernhard to fullback and pound the ball with him and Koran. Shorten the games by keeping the clock moving and create some play action pass opportunities, and count on your defense to keep you in the game. Regardless of what they decide to do, this is going to be a real challenge for the coaching staff. I don't know who will move to second string QB now.

Agreed...just posted something very similar on the SL thread in the football section. The other concern is our already suspect pass defense. I hope the coaches can rally and coach up those guys.

Yes. The TD pass on the first play against North Royalton was disappointing. They shuffled some guys around on the next series and held up decently after that, but they can't keep giving up the big play early. Against Olmsted Falls it was a big run, and against North Royalton it was a big pass.

Really, really need a win for these kids this week. They just can't quite get to the top of the mountain every week. A win would help their confidence heading into this second half of the season. It is really too bad they didn't get out of the first three weeks at 2-1 instead of 1-2.

A win this week puts the Hornets at 5-5, and I feel confident they will get the Colts Friday night. Too bad they couldn't have come away with wins in Tallmadge and/or Olmsted Falls. Both games could have been won, and may have been enough for a playoff berth. Credit the seniors for not giving up when they were sitting at 1-4 with an injured QB and little hope of making the playoffs. They played as hard as I have seen them play against Wadsworth. No quit in this group.
