Good write up on Akron East. They seem to be loaded this year.

Seems like they have quite a bit of talent.

Interesting all the Akron commits. Are the Dragons really that good or is Akron making a public relations decision by going for some marginal players from the local community?

Akron East is going to be goo this year as they have some experienced kids who have some good playoff experience with them.

I think Akron is trying to build a team of local commits. Dusty Burkhart and Malik Wooldridge, from the two schools in the area known for their speed/sprinting in track, are also Akron commits.

Dragons? Heck all this time I thought they were the Orientals. Good to hear they will be solid this year as I recall them never really being very good for a while there.

One of my favorite nicknames. Too bad they had to lose the name to political correctness.

When I was in school the football team couldn't win a game. Glad to see them turn the program around.

With the addition of Will Collier and others, East should have another good season this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see them hosting in week 11.

Good for East.
Seemed all anybody ever talked about was Buchtel. Maybe Garfield once in a while.

Today East had a 7 on 7 with SVSM. I know it's early, but did anyone attend who can report what he observed?

East has good athletes but struggled stopping StV. The sophomore QB from StV threw probably 6 or 7 Tds. The QB from East threw a few good balls but also threw 5 or 6 interceptions. East is going to rely on the run which we all know and from what they showed tonight they will struggle stopping people but it's early.

A good season for the Orientals was not losing every game, they had a stretch where they won between 0-2 games a year for about five years if I recall correctly.

Glad to hear, they're not a 1 hit wonder. Glad to see some excitement, and that maybe they can bring back the glory days, from way back when. Best of luck, I'll be rootin' for Ya !

Thanks! How did the RB transfer Collier look for East?

From what I recall I believe he just played safety and didn't take any reps in the backfield.

Lets keep this towards the top. Would be great to see East break through and compete at the highest level.
