First things first. Bobby77, from one Catholic school guy to another, you have no clue. That goes for football, talent, or recruiting. You just have no idea and you prove it with every post. I could explain myself, but you will never understand. Leave the thinking to the adults. Just go to your Hoban games and enjoy your victories.

Secondly, the Wright kid is staying at Manchester. He was being courted by every private school and a few publics (Yes you Massillon and Buchtel) in Summit, Stark, and Cuyahoga Counties including my own alma mater (Don't know what that is, look up some of my past posts but I wish we could have got him). He will not play QB at Manchester. They do not need him to play QB. All they need to do is hand off to him.

Thirdly, he is being recruited by every school in the Big Ten, the MAC, the ACC, and by many schools in every other major conference including the SEC (Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, LSU) , the Big 12 (Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State) and the PAC 12 (Washington, Washington State, Arizona, UCLA). They have already found him. He does not need to be discovered. He is being projected as a slot/WR in college unless he can put on 20 pounds of muscle without losing speed. How do I know? Because it is my business to know.

With him at RB and the other weapons Manchester has they will be the odds on favorite to win their region next year. Anyone who knows my history and how I feel about Manchester knows that is not what I usually say. I just can not stand anymore stupid posts by people who do not know.

Not sure what the obsession is with how these kids get their school paid for. Work programs or financial aid, who cares.
He's a product of the Manchester Local School District and has attended Manchester schools since at least middle school.

I, and every other Manchester poster will remind you of this the first time you post otherwise, and you know you will post otherwise.

As for being recruited, I have heard similar stories about him being recruited by several big programs. Manchester also has at least two other Division I college caliber kids who are being recruited. Three kids of that talent level on a Division V roster usually means good things because the pool of talent at that level means they can often control a game.

Stizo, you are almost 100% correct. First, he isn't leaving because Hoban told him no Defense and WR only. Secondly, they didn't want to relo and when they found out he had to sit 1/2 of every sport, it made the decision easier. Yea, I know, why didn't dad check on the eligibility rules 1st? Because stars were in his eyes. There has been NO CONVERSATION with the Manchester Coaches about him playing QB. It was a pure assumption on him and daddy's part. With #34 & #5 back they will not be hurting for offensive threats and #5 is a threat to score on Special Teams every time. FYI, they have a kid who played JV QB back and #34 also can play QB. Their line will be very good and with a new Defensive Coordinator the D should be much improved. Thus, I hope your predictions are true.

Probably best that he stay where he is. There he can play both ways, every special team. Carry the ball 30-40 times a game and rush for 2000 yards for the season. Most of the kids at Hoban do not Play both ways because they don’t have to. It keeps them pretty healthy for those long playoff runs. With all of those offers coming he should stay where he is. No need to play against some of the top teams in the state. If Hoban told him that he would only play WR that says a lot. Most schools who are stealing kids from public’s would have told him anything he wanted to hear in order to get him to the dark side. Tells me that Hoban was not heavily recruiting anyone but that he was being shopped around by his family.

Oh and Hoban had 2 more players offered by Michigan this week bringing the number to 3 who hold offers from the big Blue. Also Dartmouth offered 2 other kids in the past week who already hold multiple D1 offers. Yes it is better for him to stay where he is and make his hometown proud.

CoventryTrackXCguy is an unknown quantity at this point
And thus my theory is proven in this instance. Too many cooks in one kitchen. Its not as extreme as with basketball, but there is only one varsity ball, and only so many positions a team could fill. After those spots are loaded as they are at many positions at Hoban, a case could be made, one would be better off playing for a lesser, but still solid, program. I'm not saying go to celler dwellers. But a more reasonable place, like Mogadore, Manchester, Barberton, Coventry, Woodridge, Tallmadge, etc. All at the minimum decent, athletically as well as academically, and with coaches that are (hopefully) experienced in helping prospects get recruited, for D1 as well as D2. It worked out well for Burkhart (WR, Akron),Hargrove (DE, Pitt), Skaggs (QB, Malone), Zack Lake, (WR, Alderson Broadus), Wess(Basketball, Walsh).

I know the family personally, I coached the young man and I can tell you his Dad doesn't read this stuff. His dad is an awesome person and will only do what's best for all his children. I've personally not called about this issue. I can tell you I'd be surprised if the young man leaves Manchester. Good luck to tthe entire family with your decision.

I donít care if this kid comes or goes. I am not going to give you my credentials to let you understand why I have forgotten more about recruiting and high school football than both of you have ever known. Most of of my posts are goofy because I am making fun of you self proclaimed experts.

And I know he is from Manchester. I actually read the thread. What this family decides to do with their children is their own business and this has been my theme all along. That must be a hard concept for you simpletons. Leave the kids future to the adults.
I did read your posts. That is why I posted what I did. I will stand by what I said.

Stiz has also told everyone that Northwest and Orville would dismantle everyone in the PAC on arrival so....... everyone's still waiting on that prophecy.

That question didnít even deserve an answer because of how it was asked based on Bobbyís earlier posts and sarcasim towards Manchester football.

Congrats to Nick Beans on getting to play college football at the next level.

You know, I'm not into all the agendas that posters have on Yappi. It all seems a little infantile to me. He asked a question and I answered it.

I was going to take your side on that post (I think it was deleted). He took a risk transferring and it paid off. The kid was getting killed out there and transferred.

I haven't been on here for a while. Just saw a post of mine was drawn into question. I was just trying to clarify what I thought was a discrepancy. I thought there was some question about where Wright came from. Didn't realize the talk had turned to someone else in mid-thread.

I didn't say you didn't know anything. If it came off that way I didn't mean it that way. Now Stiz is another matter. He's always out to win friends and influence people. Just ask any PAC poster.

Bobby and some of the other Hoban posters seem a bit salty over missing out on that "mediocre" Manchester talent.

Not sure where that comes from? Appears that family made a decision to stay put based on the fact said transfer was told he would be more suited to play a position other than RB and would not probably play defense at Hoban. That and pressure from the hometown crowd may keep him at home. And thatís great. Because itís the families decision to do what they think is best for their son, and no one is salty over that.

I can't remember if this was posted earlier and I'm too lazy to check, but the DC Coach Forret is returning. It appears he has worked out his work schedule and can coach again.

Ask some of the Manchester alums if they are happy with that especially guys who played under McDowell or Robinson when they were the DC.

Considering the numbers Manchester has, he does a nice enough job. However, he is blessed with some studs returning and they should be much improved.

So much entertainment on this thread.

As a Triway fan, bummed to know we will have to face this guy again. Incredible talent. But glad that he will be able to continue playing with his friends.
