Also I wouldn’t worry too much on 1st game. I do think East looked considerably better all-around. Fundamentally better too and limited dumb mistakes/penalties. They will win a few games for sure. Might even give Ursuline a good run next week. I think Boardman kept things pretty simple.
First, congratulations to the Spartans on their season-opening win.

^ Regarding the above, I saw on the news last night that the football participation rates (I don't know the periods) dropped the most in these three states:

Ohio - 23%, North Carolina and Illinois - 18%
. [Two sizable NC high schools are not fielding teams this year]. Agree 60 is the new 75-80 and hope 75-80 will be the new 60 when I get there!

Not news, but thought I would share it. FWIW. Good luck next week!

On to week 2 and Howland looks to be pretty young and inexperienced. New head coach. Lost their QB from last year. Boardman should take care of business. We'll see if they trot O'Horo out there or not.

I wouldn’t say this is a blowout but I will say Boardman should win by three touchdowns. . Should.

They play the game for a reason, but I don’t see any chance Howland hangs around in this one. 35-7.

The running game better improve this week, especially if O'Horo doesn't play.

I'd like to see us just run the ball more this week. Keep it close to the vest again.

At Howland..

I know Boardman won both Junior high and freshman games last night. Last year was close for a half until Amstutz stripped Dean of the ball and took it 85 yards the other way, but this Howland team seems to be down. I expect another conservative game plan before opening it up next week.

Seems like Howland really struggling passing the ball, already have thrown 3 INTs.

Boardman leads 7-0, let's see if they can convert.

I don't want to speak too soon but they'll be lucky to win 3 games IMO

Wow. We might have a running clock without O'Horo and it seems like limited amounts of Ieraci...

Howland is bad, yikes.

Seems like Josh Rodriguez has some potential. Maybe keep Ieraci at LB and limit his offensive carries or use him more in the slot. Only thing missing from last year is having a bruiser like Jennings was. He and Ieraci were an unstoppable tandem last year until Ieraci got hurt.

Either way, have to be happy with tonight's effort. But Howland, man, they might not win 2 games. Looking at their schedule they only have 1 game that screams win. The way East is pounding Ursuline tonight (34-7 in the 3rd quarter) also raises some eyebrows. East impressed me last week. They were pretty fundamentally sound.

But I'm convinced we will need 7-3 to make the playoffs. 6-4 probably won't do it because Jackson and Howland will not win 7 and 6 games this season.

East is a lot better this year. May give us some nice points if they can keep it up.

Good to get the W and get everyone healthy. Onto Jackson!

Level 2 watch. McDowell up 55-21 over Buffalo St. Francis. They will be a team to watch. And I think out of state games all get the L2 from the team's own division so that is 6.5 L2's for every game McDowell can pick up...

Not bad for your starting QB not playing at all and your RB barely playing.

Yep. Checked all the boxes. No injuries. Developed some depth. Rested guys. Won comfortably.

Plus sides from last night:
1. Able to rest O’Horo and still comfortably win.
2. D looked good all around.
3. Che Travena might be the best WR we’ve had in awhile. A different type of WR than Koontz or Hammond brothers were. Catches nearly everything but also has great moves, something the others didn’t really have.
4. I think this might be the deepest, most well-rounded group of WR we’ve had. There’s at least a good 5-6 good WRs. And a nice mix of size and speed.
5. Rodriguez is clearly the #1 back right now. It just doesn’t look like Ieraci is fully back. I’d limit his carries and focus his efforts as OLB on D.

On to Jackson.

Agreed on Trevena. He's got some size at 6-1, 6-2 but he's also pretty shifty. Slocum looks good for only being a Sophomore.

Will be the toughest of the 3 by far. I think our defense has the edge though, traditionally we haven't had too much trouble scoring against them. If we can limit the big plays and have consistency from the running game we should have an edge but this will be tough.

Boardman should have no problem this week. In fact, I look for Boardman to be Region 5 Champs this year. My prediction.
