Manchester thread???

The Manchester thread has been on here for a week or two. Why was it taken down right after it was stated this kid was transferring to HOBAN. It was fine when St.V. was being discussed as his destination. But Hoban gets him and the mods completely remove the thread..WHY?

That’s a great question. Seems to me that Hoban carries more scrutiny and moderating than St V post’s. You would laugh at all of the Private messages and threats that I receive from St V posters.

How many RB will Hoban field since their is one Football? Ty Dickerson, Traynum, Kobe Campbell, Collisin and now Wright. Players change positions for a chance at ring sacrificing their own careers? Do people check depth charts before making these decisions? QB Jordan Mick who could start for many High school programs will serve as a backup for all four years of HS Career or move to another position. Tyrrell must be the best Recruiter in Ohio!!! Will Wright spotted in the Knights Training facility receive the annual 8K in “financial aid”. D+T+S=$$$ 4����

Starstoshine sounds worried about Hoban having too many RB’s and QB’s? Also his concern that they are throwing away their careers for rings and their lack of knowledge on depth charts!! LOL.

These kids want to compete and don’t care about any of that BS. All positions are open competition and the best kids will get on the field. Doesn’t matter who they or their parents are either. That’s why they come.

This rumor is gaining momentum in Manchester and the family has done nothing to stop it. The other rumor is he is leaving because he and his father don't want him to switch to QB. If true, you have to wonder why he would give up half of the football, basketball and track seasons so as to not have a position switch? My gut tells me he is staying home.

How is this a "Manchester thread"!?! It should be renamed the"Paranoid Delusional Hoban Conspiracy Theory" thread. C'mon guys, ever get tired of nailing yourselves upon that Holy Cross!?!

Bobby77, welcome to Yappi. You might want to review the Hoban threads from the last 3 or 4 years before you expend the emotion you seem to want to expend.

If this kid is going to Hoban for academics, good for him. If he's going to play with and against the best, good for him. If he's going for exposure, he and his parents are ill-informed. If a kid is good, colleges will find him whether he's playing for St. Ignatius or Akron North.

I DO recognize this! That is why it is so silly to read Hoban posters going on about the free pass that the Irish always get! You guys are getting the bulk of the bad press recently. But you guys are still the "nouveu riche" when it comes to Yappi disdain. St. V and Mooney and a handful of other schools have been at the forefront of this commentary for far longer than I care to remember. And to hear all this "Woe is me!" is just a little hard to take.

I thought Trayanum was the best player on Hoban's team against Avon, along with Rumler. Those two were the true difference-makers, though others had very good games too.

The big difference between the Hoban and St. V threads is that there always seemed to be a much more overt racial under current in the St. V threads which, to me, is just reprehensible.

Clark, I agree kids can get noticed anywhere. Currently a student athlete will get more exposure at Hoban but that has not always been the case. Over 100 college coaches have been in Hoban since the quiet period ended. I doubt that is the case at Manchester. It will be harder to stand out at Hoban. A good player at Hoban will have more opportunities than a great player at Manchester at least for the near future.
Clark, that may be true, but Ohio State paid a visit to Manchester last week. No matter where you play, they find you.

That may very well be true. But you can't swing a shillelagh around the halls of St. V at any given time without hitting several D1, D2 or D3 recruiters! They will find you in the halls of Manchester, but it is a whole lot easier for you to find them in the halls of Hoban or St. V.

Back to the kid. He's surprisingly strong for his size and has a build that could put on some muscle. He's also fast and elusive and has good hands. He'll play and see the ball wherever he goes or the OC is not doing his job. He split out wide quite a bit at Manchester so I could see him playing outside for Hoban.

As an aside, I hate to see a small community team lose its once in a generation player.

Urban was at Hoban a few days ago. Itís possible that it was he who was at Manchester as well.

Urban Meyer spent a lot of time at Hoban Friday. I would be very surprised if he had to stop at Manchester? Can anyone confirm him at Manchester?

It appears that Wright is indeed transferring to Hoban. No decision on moving to avoid sitting out.

There isn't much coming back next fall at the Chester. It would have been bleak if he stayed. The next question is does #34 and #5 go back to where they were?

I disagree I think they will be very competitive. #5, Johnson is a Manchester resident. He transferred home last year from SVSM. A very dangerous threat as a RB, receiver and kick returner. #34 Foster isn't going anywhere. He will be a big contributor in the running game. QB will be the issue. To be honest and blunt, it won't take much to replace France at QB or receiver. They have some very good OL's coming back led by Hettich and Baker. Defensively they lose very little. Wright struggled at LB because of overuse on offense. Knight, Beans and France will be easily replaced. Yea, it'll be harder without Wright, but the cupboard is far from bare. Numbers will be a problem.

If you are surrounded by solid players, it helps!

How many yards would Sibley have if he was running the ball for Akron East vs DeSales or Trotwood?
Wright had over 2000 yds. playing for Manchester. He won't have that at Hoban.

Cherry picking the best talent from Summit and Portage County will allow that to happen. Care to discuss who is paying the tuition for these stars. You mention Sibley which booster paid that bill. How about the Clark circus?

Do you really think colleges recruit players based off of stats???
