DIV Region 16

Now that Alter is up to DIII who is the favorite in this region. Any challengers to Massie?

Valley View may challenge Massie! Got a lot of starters returning this year with some talented younger boys.

Genslinger is tough. Gotta put VV in the mix.

The difference could come down to strength of schedule this season. The SWBL probably won't prepare VV for week 11. Massie has a LOADED schedule so come week 11, regardless of their record, they'll be an incredibly tough out for anyone. I'm not calling VV a pushover but they haven't had much success as of late and I'd put them about where Milton Union was in 2012 or Monroe in 2014, both teams Massie laid it on. I could be wrong, but Massie hasn't lost a game to an SWBL team in a long time and they just seem to win the games they're supposed to.

Very valid point about the schedule. Massie has 1 great game (CW), 3 really good games (NW, NR, Wilm), 3 good games (SS, MT,Goshen) and 3 bad games (EC, Bat, WB). VV has 2 great games (FR, Franklin), 1 really good game (Wilm), 3 good games (Madison, Bellbrook, Brookville) and 4 bad games (Dixie, Monroe, Oakwood, Eaton).

These two may end up in the regional final, what a slug fest it would be! Would love to see how Massie schemes for the LB from VV, that kid is a player!

Massie has seen the best linebackers out of anyone. Alter every year has the best mid/small sized school LB core in the area. Fenwick did two years ago. I highly doubt one kid is going to blow things up. Not doubting the kid's talent but I'm just saying Massie, for years, has to had to deal with 3-4 LBs that are very good and the ones they have faced are playing mid-sized DI college football.

Uh cant speak to the other teams you mentioned, but Northwest will be way down. Lost 16 starters including the QB and almost all the skilled position players.

Experienced on both sides, not huge, but very powerful! I think 4-5 are wrestlers with 2 going to state this year and 1 was runner up! Not saying they're D1 college material but they all can hold their own!

Valley View and Massie would definitely be a great game to watch this year barring any injury setbacks!

Massie does not scheme because of a player, If you know Massie they run right at you. Easy team to defend, load the box with your best and try to beat them. they run 95% of the time.

I wouldn't say easy to defend! But yes, they run power football, and you better be ready for a fight in the trenches!

The Triple Option is never "easy" to defend, especially when Massie is so good at it and building their entire O around it. I think you're being sarcastic but Massie can throw it too... Many of their QBs will have 500+ yards passing with a high % of completions being TDs.

Massie’s defense will be lights out and on offense there will be some new faces in the backfield with more speed and playmaking ability than last year. QB is a very important decision that I believe will be the deciding factor in a very good team and a great team.

Uh I saw Massie last year, and I have no idea how many kids they have coming back. But against Edgewood they looked totally lost and physically got dominated. Things change from year to year but I was not impressed with Massie last year.

They return a solid core of players. Last year was the first year the were playing several players both ways in a long time. Alter handled them soundly. They lose a few good players but I think they can make another good run. One thing I've always been impressed with Massie is the fact they don't have DI players or big names people talk about except the Wolfe brothers... and they still compete, grind it out, and win.

I was at this game also, 1st game of a quad scrimmage. Massie did have a couple starters out that game but you are right. Edgewood was fired up and took it to em. Good learning moment for Massie, glad it happened that way. Eye opening experience for a good team to face adversity. Turned out tho that Edgewood gave alot of good teams trouble last year.

Agree with several comments on this thread. No mystery what Massie tries to do offensively, just depends how the defense plays that will be lead by a 1st team all state linebacker of their own. These teams sound alot alike in several ways. I think the front 5 are good sized on the o-line tho for Massie. Also with a state wrestler.

Yes, I was being sarcastic. very few teams defend it well and Massie does it as well as anybody , except when they play teams that are bigger up front (Alter, Steubenville ) that when they need to open it up and pass more. Yes they have passing yard, but most are broken pass plays for big yards against sub par teams. Massie will have a new QB this year. I hear that they may have a battle for that position this year ? I'm not saying that they should go away from the Triple Option or Wing T , but mix it up a little more. They have the talent to move the ball and score. But everyone knows that they are going to run at them. Take advantage.
