Ed Rankin was hired as the new head coach. Former assistant coach at Lisbon David Anderson and South Range. Good guy....wish him the best.

It's May 17th

"Rankin will bring with him the triple option that he ran for the Blue Devils of Lisbon"

"The issue and challenge we are going to have is needing to develop linemen. We don’t have many linemen or big linemen, and we don’t have experienced linemen coming back.”

Good luck installing a triple option offense in 3 months with very few linemen. Buckle up kids.

Give the man some time for crying out loud. He just got brought on. Sounds to me like a good offense for a rural school to run in a very competitive league. Regardless, he should not be judged on this years record. Winning one game would be success this season as late as it is.

Its pessimists like you that don't allow a system to flourish because you've talked the kids and the community out of it before it even happens. I've heard nothing but great things about this guy and I live in a rival community. Lisbon went to 3 straight playoff appearance with it, give it a chance.

I hope he is very successful. He was put in a tough situation getting hired so late. Not necessarily his fault.

Before you laugh off the triple option, keep in mind it can be effectively run with smaller OL. It depends on your skill people. The service academies drive much bigger teams silly running it. I ran it for a few years and had good success beating bigger teams. He will need good luck as the talent there is down. A good QB who is quick and can handle the ball makes them a problem to deal with.

Exactly Paladin, he knows he can't compete toe-to-toe with the Poland's, Struthers, etc. that they will face in the AAC. Using the triple option and it's misdirection, allows the returning skill players that he has to get a step on the defense. Having watched him use it at South Range and Lisbon, Jefferson will be fine. Will they win 10 games? No, but they will be competitive and possibly get back to the .500 mark if they get a few breaks.

I knew it would be someone other the candidates mentioned by the yappi elite....let me make another call...Jefferson never plays a game in NE8 conference.

Donít see it honestly. The triple option is an offense that requires some skill. Sure the linemen can be small but they will still need to be tough kids. Jefferson lacks skill and toughness. A few years ago Jefferson went 7-3 and I believe they got thumped by every good team they played as they played many smaller schools that season.

Beautiful stadium, I was impressed with their turf. Guy has his work cut out for him.

I also agree Jefferson nails on the Ne8 and follows Edgewood. Would be the smart play for them.

Too funny and true. Craemer and Gresko? C'mon. Those were never going to happen.

Good luck to Coach Rankin!

Gresko and Craemer were probably smart enough to drop out when they didnít hire someone until almost June..

The triple option will never work at Jefferson.. not enough skill there. The triple option still needs to have tough linemen and great skill. Especially when they play teams like Poland that will put points up. Running the triple option wonít help when youíre playing from behind

Neither guy was considered. Also, Craemer had taken his last job late. I was told the other guy doesn't have a degree and has no head coaching experience at all. Not what you would call an ideal candidate.

Good luck to the new coach. Let's see what he can do.

Ball control keeps teams like Poland from scoring a ton. Hard to score when the other team's time of possession doubles yours. I love all the negativity already, and the poor guy hasn't even started yet.

Why anyone would coach high school football is beyond me, you people suck!

Anyone who's worth their weight as a high school football coach isn't reading these forums anyways (if they're smart)

Got to tell you, I disagree with both of you, the triple option is a very good offense for smaller teams lacking in great skill. The key is to put your toughest skill kid at fullback, he needs to be a 3-4 yard back running forward. Put your best overall athlete at QB and let him go. I've seen tailbacks turned into QBs many times with this offense. Slotbacks don't have to be burners necessarily. Line has to block but using angled and double teams at point of attack works. Most challenging part of this offense is the dive read. Tell QB he's never wrong of he gives. Get this down and it can be a frustrating offense to deal with defensively. I've seen Alter, Coleraine and Cuyahoga Hts frustrate defenses for years with this offense.

To run the option you need 3 very capable backs with a very good and unified line, I don’t like Jefferson has any of that, 3 and outs can lead to big blowouts

So youíve seen 3 teams with a lot of talent run the triple option. This is Jefferson weíre talking about. They will finish 1-9 tops.

Colerain always has lots of skill and talent, Alter running the triple out of Wishbone maximizes talent for a mid sized school, Cuy. Hts small school that doesn't regularly have great skill but is well coached. There are many other examples of teams that run the triple in recent years with success, S. Range is another good example as was Centerville and recently Fairmont. If not the spread, they ran last year and not the triple then what??pro style? Need a QB and two backs for that, Wing T? Would be good too, angle blocking and misdirection. If coached well the triple is very difficult to defend. If you're not careful you end up on the short side of a possession battle.

So you're saying ball control running game bores kids and is ineffective right? Pick Central, Hilliard Davidson, Mogadore, Kirtland, Fairmont, Alter kids might all disagree with that statement, all have strong roster numbers. When you have success like these programs, there is a definite buy in. Plus you can always sell the kids on toughness. Kids want to be successful and if ground control works they'll do it. Also when you don't see an offense very regularly it is tough to prepare for.
