Head coach at Jefferson Area

Does anyone know if coach Henson resigned? I overheard a wrestling coach in Geauga county saying he is moving on from Jefferson. Just curious if this is true. I did not see an opening in OHSAA's website yet.

Henson is a great plaucaller. Has no talent there. Would be surprised if he left though.

I heard rumors of this back in October as the regular season was winding down, but have yet to see anything official

Good for him if he does, the talent level has diminished tremendously in the last couple years

Football out Ashtabula way has been terrible since I can remember. Kids out there would rather hunt and dirt bike ride or snowmobile. Different environment

The only two names Iíve herd was George Gresko from Kenston and John Phillips, Phillips is from one of the Ashtabula schools I believe. But I heard its down to them two guys.

Fballfan you really have the in on gresco! I just read All your insight on gresco on a West Geauga thread. I hope fballfan (errrr) gresco gets this job. From what I read he’s a great football mind and made it to the finals in West Geauga hire.

Maybe gresco can lift the level of football out east. One new creative mind might be able to light a fire under other coaches into pushing the envelope.

I donít personally know him, but my friends kids go to his youth football camps that he runs and my friends say that he is a stand up guy. I was hoping he was hired at West G over that dope Sopkovich.. but now I hope Jefferson gets Gresko. My cousin actually went to Jefferson. I heard Jefferson has wonderful facilities.

They have a pretty nice setup with nice turf, as usual they will have weather advantage playing so close to Erie

What I’m told is “that dope Sopkovich “. That fballfan errr I mean gresco! Errr I mean fballfan called Sopkovich. During the interview process Sopkovich Made gresco look like an 8 year old boy trying
To get his mom to buy him a new toy.
I don’t know if gresco will get this job but for gresco sake I hope Sopkovich doesn’t apply for the Jefferson job as well, other wise gresco won’t get this job either!

Jefferson has had a good coach...gotta imagine he is better than some junior high coach who runs a camp for k-8 kids. Not knocking this guy you are speaking of but it is very arrogant to assume he will bring some huge revelations to Jefferson. Jefferson is down on talent and plays a brutal schedule of Hubbard, Poland, Struthers, etc...
The problem with being an up and coming QB guru is if you take a job and fail then your stock falls. It also takes an awful lot more to run a program then to be a QB whisperer.
Jim Henson will leave some big shoes to fill at Jefferson with not a whole lot of talent and athleticism left on roster.

Gresko isnít a junior high coach, from what the West G people have told me heís the Quarterbacks Coach and offensive coordinator over at Kenston High School. And that he runs Motivational youth sports camps for not only youth kids but high school kids..

Football Ė ATHLETICS http://kenstonlocal.org/klimkowski/8th-grade-football/

I dont know anyone from west g or kenston but that's what it says on the kenston webpage. Listen I dont care one way or the other...the job is a dog because of the league they are in. They will not be very good.
My point is that they had an above average coach already and struggled so lets not pretend someone with no experience of being a head coach will make a world of difference. If they don't play Edgewood than there isn't a game on that schedule they will win in 2018.

Also on livethelion.com, Mr Gresko offers a QB coach for kids in grades k-8. I dont just throw stuff out there I heard from some person, I looked it up. Maybe he does more than one camp, but my info is correct.

I looked it up Jefferson does have a brutal schedule, but my point stands, out east the football is not the greatest. Lakeside, conneut, jefferson, Geneva, St. John, Edgewood all have been bottom feeders. Maybe a fresh young face that runs a innovative offense, a tempo driven offense like fballfan (errr I mean Gresco) . Can steer Jefferson back up again.
The coach that retired from Jefferson was a legend out there along with his father. But sometimes a program can use change. Light a fire under kids butts. Enthusiasm can help motivate. That’s my point. I hope fballfan gets the job. I think he will do well. At least it will be a fun offense to watch.

Fballfan10 you comedy bro!

Dee Lou Chanel thanks for pointing that out! I went back and looked at his post and he is definitely Gresko. In that other thread, he post about 5 times that Gresko is a finalist, then bashes the hire. He also seems to be up on Kenston, posting their offensive stats and all.

Now in this thread, he doesn't know him personally, but his friends take their sons to his youth camp and they tell him that Gresko's a stand up guy. They know that how? He's really good with little kids??

For someone that has stressed he doesn't know the guy personally, he sure is all in on him. I could buy that he might have some inside scoop on one school, but not two. So coming at us with "I've heard" Gresko is a finalist is a little sketchy.

Jefferson people will see this too...heís only hurting himself with these pathetic narratives. It shows immaturity, not what they need in a head coach, especially considering who just left that job. Or maybe heís not smart enough to see how transparent these posts are...kinda sad.

You did see that the kenston article was from 2015 correct?

And your absolute correct itís a very tough schedule. But they have been successful before that passed two years. They have won games.

Never once have I said Iíve known him. Iím a football fan that absolutely loves high school football. You guys are nuts haha Alls I said in the West G thread was pretty much why hire a guy that hasnít ever won? Iíd much rather hire a coach who has been a part of winning tradition like Kenston has been. I was at the Kenston West G game last year and kenston destroyed us... They were fast at running plays and had a tough defense.. Thatís why I liked Gresko to get the job. And yes I did bash Sopkovich a little because as a parent I was unhappy about it.

And based of Greskoís camps, my friends kids go to his camps and they are supposedly very motivational and have good speakers talk to the youth. Thatís all I really know about his camps.

No one said you know him, we say you ARE HIM!

I can understand "if" you do in fact have a son at West G, wanting a certain coach, but you are now in another thread about another job opening hyping this same coach. You don't find that odd? And the only name you ever hear as a finalist is this coach?

Iím pretty sure I named two coaches were finalist for the Jefferson job. The only reason I know anything about Gresko is because I wanted him to coach at West G so kind of been following what he was going to do after he didnít get the West G job.
