Too bad. Dumbest rule ever invented. Which is saying a lot for OHSAA.

Yes, I liked it better when they were required to miss the 1st 5 games, then could play the remainder of the season.

So who are some players to watch for from Wadsworth? Defensively, #76 Bradshaw at end is a stud. #24 Kendrick flies to the ball at LB. We rely much more on the system though and play great team defense and dont rely on great athletes as much. Offensively, we go with 2 QB's who have very different skill sets. #6 is our Senior(Fargus) and he is around 6'4" and has a strong arm, but not much of a scrambler. If pressured he will make some poor choices occasionally. Fritter #19 is a Sophmore who can beat you with his arm or legs. Very athletic. He doesn't have the arm that Fargus has though. Both QB's got banged up last week, with Fritter missing the last 8 minutes or so. He was seen on the sideline with ice on his hand/wrist. Haven't heard anything further on his injury, but I really hope he is able to play Friday night.We have 2 Sophmore RB's who both play. Pantaleo #33 is tall and lean and runs smooth. He can run over you, or make some nice cuts. He hasnt looked as good during the 2nd half of the season as he did at the beginning. #22 Sands is more of the small, quick back with a lot of speed. He hits the hole fast though and is hard to get a hold of. As I mentioned earlier, our best receiver is #2 Taylor, but he has been out since week 5 due to transfer rules.

Good discussion thanks for the info and insight.

Best of luck to both. Hope the injury bug stays away.

Hope to see one of you next week Lord willing.

Defensively, wads runs a 3-3-5. The dline is pretty undersized but havenít been pushed around this year. There are no standouts among the dline but they all hold their own. The strength of the team is the linebackers. #17 Mason Mcmillen is one of the best highschool football players I have ever seen. He is always in the backfield and flying all over the field. The only reason he doesnít have big D1 offers is because he is undersized for that level of college football. The other standout at linebacker is #33 Jack Grice. He has great speed for his size and constantly makes plays. The secondary is the weakness of the defense. The corners are undersized and have struggled with bigger recievers. They also donít have great speed to make up for their size(not sure how fast the TV recievers are). The standout isnít the secondary is #15 Alec Miller. He is a hybrid linebacker/safety. He is quick enough to cover slot recievers but also big enough to make plays in the run game. The safety #28 Herbert set a school record with 9 intís but he seems to get beat quite a bit. Many of the intís also seemed to be tipped or thrown right to him.(not trying to take anything away from the kid as 9 intís is very impressive, just what I feel is accurate). Look for wads to blitz Mcmillen, Grice, or Miller on a lot of plays. Offensively, wads will spread you out and ride the hot hand, whether that be running or passing. The oline is also undersized but they open up big holes for the running backs and are solid in pass pro. The receiver to watch is #4 Barret Labus. He is electric with the ball in his hands and is only a sophomore. The othe recievers are solid and do a nice job blocking. The running backs are the strength of the offense. #14 Brock Snowball is a load to bring down and is surprisingly quick for his size. #3 Dominic Loparo is also very tough to tackle. He has great vision and speed and always seems to break big runs. They are both on the field for almost every play as when they are not running the ball they do a great job blocking for one another from the h-back spot. The quarterback Trey Shaffer has done a very nice job replacing Mr. Football Joey Baughman. He doesnít have a great arm but is pretty accurate in the short to medium passing game. He makes good decisions with the ball when not under pressure but can force a few throws when there is pressure. He has only been asked to run the ball one game this year(against nordonia) and he did a very nice job(about 100 yards rushing). This could be a factor is TV can shut down Snowball and Loparo. Overall I think that these teams are pretty similar and this should be a great game.

Iím sure he meant 20. His assessment was pretty spot on. A couple things Iíll add. Herbert might be in the right place at the right time but you donít break the interception record by accident. And I love how humble he is. When interviewed, he gave the credit for his interceptions to his teammates doing their jobs. He said he doesnít get those opportunities without everyone else doing their jobs. Love that kind of attitude. Team first!

Having watched all the games I see nothing to disagree with that comment. When he gets a pick he hands the ball to the ref and trots over to the sideline. No chest pounding or look at me antics. Gives credit to his teammates when he has the opportunity to let it shine on him. I also heard he has/had a pretty significant spinal condition. I wonít elaborate because I have no direct knowledge. The announcers said itís amazing that he can even play let alone at such a high level.

Nothing to apologize for. I thought your assessment was extremely accurate. I just wanted to expand on Herbert a little. I knew what you meant. He definitely has a knack for being around the ball

It's funny, I had watched some video on Wadsworth and told my buddy that when he gets the chance to watch some, to look for their LB #17. He really, really reminds me of Kendrick of TV #24. Seems to have a nose for the ball and really can put up some big hits. You are also correct in that the teams really do seem to be very similar. TV's strength is our run D. Some games we throw .ore, while others we try to establish the run. I am expecting another great game Friday. Best of luck to both teams and hopefully there is no injuries for either side.

Have really been looking forward to this game since last Friday after both teams won!! Went and watched TV for the first time this year as we have some ties to that program and took advantage of DIV playing on Saturday. Was really impressed with how active and athletic TV is. Not going to blow you away with their size up front but they are always causing havoc and being disruptive. Thought #24 Hendricks was the best player on the field. Was always around the ball and could really lay the lumber when the time came! He was the leader and ďquarterbackĒ every defense wants. The offense seemed to have a different rhythm when #10 was on the field. Heís quick and just a gamer from what I saw. It should be a great matchup Friday night!!

Yes, Kendrick is definitely around the ball a lot. Hes also one hell of a punter. He really boots them deep. I think you are meaning #19 Fritter, not #10, if you are you talking about qb? I agree, the offense has been flowing much better with Fritter at the helms, but again, still not sure of his availability. (#10 Andrew Newsom was our QB last year).

I apologize, yes #19 Fritter. He just carried himself different and seemed to be one of those kids who is just a baller if that makes sense. Hopefully he is available as I feel he is a difference maker for you guys. Kendrick has a hell of a leg for sure lol! Also seemed like #9 had his name called a lot in run support. Seems like he will be a factor this week as well.

For Tri-Valley, Fargus has the big arm. Can throw the deep ball very well. If a receiver gets behind the defense, he can make the throw. Fritter doesn't have quite as strong of an arm, but it is accurate. He might be the best runner on the team. Hard to get down and pops out of so many piles. Sands and Panteleo run hard but are not flashy. Fritter, Sands and Panteleo are all sophomores.


TV Defense is solid. Offense has been inconsistent the second half of the season. A TV win would mean a low scoring game. Wadsworth will be the best team TV has faced followed by Sheridan and Barberton in that order. John Glenn would not be denied the night they beat Tri-Valley (TV had beat their neighbor 12 straight years) , but JG, Philo and Zanesville are solid teams but not as good as those mentioned above. The other 5 teams that TV beat were not very good teams. The MVL has no middle. You are really good or really not good.

I've watched both these teams live. Wadsworth in week 10 against Hudson and Tri-Valley in week 11 against Barberton. Anyone that has seen both teams and thinks this game will be close is just hoping for a good game to watch. Wadsworth will win this game by 3 touchdowns. Tri-Valley will not be able to score close to enough points to make a game of it against Wadsworth. The Wadsworth offense has too much skill for TV to deal with. The TV defense is good, not great Barberton went up and down the field but kept making mistakes to avoid the end zone. Wadsworth has played better defenses this year like Hudson and even Medina. Wadsworth will spread the field and put TV into their single LB front and the 2 Wadsworth RB's will go crazy. If TV moves more LB's into the box the Wadsworth WR and the screen game and quick passing game will take over I saw it first hand against Hudson. The Tri-Valley offense was very average against a solid but not great Barberton D. Barberton spent the whole game in the TV backfield and Wadsworth lives on penetration and tackles for a loss. The TV QB doesn't take pressure well and misses a lot of throws high. Those will be tipped INT's against the Wadsworth defense. I won't head south for this one with better games closer but I will be shocked if this one is close. Tri-Valley just doesn't have the offensive weapons to hang with Wadsworth on the scoreboard. The TV defense will have to choose what they try to stop. My guess is they try to take away the 2 RB's and stop the running game. The Wadsworth QB and WR's will have a big night, TV offense cant score nearly enough and Wadsworth moves onto week 12.

You may very well be right. However, this same program played in week 15 last year and beat the likes of Hartley, SVSM, and gave Trotwood Madison all they wanted down to the last second. I use last year only to say they were the clear underdog in all of those games and I'm sure heard how they didn't stand a chance against any of those teams. I am not a TV backer but do follow them from a far and catch playoff games if they fall on the opposite night of DIV and I can say they have a culture and kids who believe they can play with anyone. Just an observation from an outsider. Should be a great one on Friday!!

You are exactly right. I'll never say they can win every game, but those kids believe they can. The only people think they are underdogs are the spectators. They relish the underdog role & love proving they belong. I hope Wadsworth underestimates them also, but after last year I don't think anyone will look past them now. I just want a good game & I believe it will be.

Tri-Valley will not be able to score close to enough points to make a game of it against Wadsworth. The Wadsworth offense has too much skill for TV to deal with. The TV defense is good, not great Barberton went up and down the field but kept making mistakes to avoid the end zone. Wadsworth has played better defenses this year like Hudson and even Medina. Wadsworth will spread the field and put TV into their single LB front and the 2 Wadsworth RB's will go crazy. If TV moves more LB's into the box the Wadsworth WR and the screen game and quick passing game will take over I saw it first hand against Hudson. The Tri-Valley offense was very average against a solid but not great Barberton D. Barberton spent the whole game in the TV backfield and Wadsworth lives on penetration and tackles for a loss. The TV QB doesn't take pressure well and misses a lot of throws high. Those will be tipped INT's against the Wadsworth defense. I won't head south for this one with better games closer but I will be shocked if this one is close. Tri-Valley just doesn't have the offensive weapons to hang with Wadsworth on the scoreboard. The TV defense will have to choose what they try to stop. My guess is they try to take away the 2 RB's and stop the running game. The Wadsworth QB and WR's will have a big night, TV offense cant score nearly enough and Wadsworth moves onto week 12.
I'm not so sure where all this confidence comes from. In its last 20 regular season games Wadsworth has faced 5 teams that ended up with a winning record. Wadsworth gives up an insane amount of points to teams that frankly no team would be worried about playing. If a team with a decent defense stacks the box Wadsworth is in deep trouble IMHO. Any undefeated season should be respected but should also be viewed with some perspective.
