Are these official visits or is it just mom and dad taking their son to see the school. Big difference.

Why the negativity? These are by invitation. Call it what you want.

I am a graduate of a D3 school in NE Ohio. I an fully aware of how they approach potential student athletes and was able to attend because of that approach. From what I saw of Johnson he is a prototypical D3 player. He should be able to thrive in a D3 program.

True. He is also being recruited by a few D2 programs. Hettich and Johnson will probably be the only Jrs. to play at the next level. Baker could, but doesn't want to. Track is his goal.

Can we consider Manchester a legitimate State Champ contender? Small school with speed galore. Could this be Coach France best team ever?

I believe this is a very good team and if everyone remains healthy have a real shot at doing something great. QB is a question mark but really with Wright carrying the ball they just need someone to manage the game.

Won't know the answer for awhile to this question. They could very well be better because they really didn't lose a lot. They will be fast and more athletic.
The options to take the load off of Wright point to Johnson and Foster. Both very fast. Johnson is more athletic and could end up as WR. QB is the big question mark. The PAC is a QB oriented league. Supposedly they are looking at Wright, Johnson, Pajlich, Soles and Mayer. Not a lot of experience there, if any. The biggest problem will be the numbers. They only lost 5 players, but had no Freshman Team last year.

If what has been posted is accurate and Manchester really does have that many kids being recruited, then they have to be considered a legitimate contender. I don't agree with Stiz on much, but I do on the this, and that is at schools in Division Four and lower, all it takes is one or two superior athletes to control a game. I saw Wright play last year. He may have been the best RB in Division Five as a sophomore. I'm excited to see what he does from here on out. Foster and Johnson showed real talent and speed, and as we know in the lower levels, speed kills.

Now to the real question, is this Coach France's best team ever? No. That would have to be his 1976 team because that was the last and only year Stizostedion suited up as a Panther. If only we knew then what we know now.

Not sure what the obsession is with how these kids get their school paid for. Work programs or financial aid, who cares.
So you don't think there should be concern when teams are stacking the deck with all star teams?

Kind of makes a mockery of competition.

I know I know the kids at the other schools should just work harder.

If a public middle school athlete’s parent chooses to take their child to a private school starting in 9th grade and make the sacrifice’s of paying additional $$$, additional travel, leaving all of his or her friends for the opportunity that a private education offers as well as the athletic advantage, then what’s the beef? Parents have been taking their kids to travel baseball, soccer, AAU basketball, JO volleyball and softball to give them better coaching, competition and exposure for years. Why? They spent thousands of dollars each year to help their kid get better. Stacking them on teams to have an advantage. So when the same thing happens in high school, we all cry foul. And public’s won 6/7 state titles last year so it appears that the public schools currently have the advantage overall.

not misinformed or wrong .... Johnson and Baker are really good players at the d-5 level .... no way Baker plays OL at Hoban and Johnson wasn't even an all Pac-7 first teamer as a Jr. ....... they are both role players at best at a school like Hoban, but both will be all league performers as seniors in the Pac - 7 ... Hoban is a different animal, their O-line last year had to average out around 275 per player .....

Once again, wrong. Johnson DID NOT leave for more playing time! I know the family and there were issues not associated with that. He was penciled in as a starter at DB, but had to have shoulder surgery his Sophomore year. As far as ALL-Pac? Anyone who knows France and his staff knows why certain players are picked by them form post season awards. They had the leading tackler and he didn't make ALL-Pac! Please check your facts before you post "fake news".

nothing fake to my point that he wasn't all first team Pac - 7 ... that's a FACT ... and unless you were a coach you would have no idea who was penciled in to be a starter ... that type of info. typically remains in house ... I'm not ripping the kid in any way i simply stated an opinion on who from Manchester could start and contribute at Hoban if you remember

Thank you for clearing up your point. However, I don't think his family would appreciate his name being associated with Hoban. LOL. There was NEVER any thought of him attending school there. As far as being privy to information at SVSM or MHS, what I stated are indeed FACTS!

I believe there had to be some thought to attending if a visit was made? Conversations were had with people from Hoban about him attending. For whatever reason it never went any further from a visit. I believe it was because he was told he wouldn’t play both ways and would not be the featured back. It all seems to have worked out for him as he has offers at the D1 level.
The post was not about Wright.

At this point, it appears that it will stay open. A few opportunities, but they fell through due to various reasons.

This is true... It actually is less of a hassle too. The politics in the hoopla oriented programs mean that recruiters have to sort through promoting political kids who have no business moving onto the college level. At the "small public" There's typically one kid to see and no dancing with mom and dad, coach/pimp, etc.

I think that playing on a state championship team will enhance a player's opportunities for exposure to colleges. There are athletes at Hoban who would not have D1 offers if they played at a local public school. The program's exposure gets many more players looks. The scouts are already watching the team.

That's your opinion, in reality you don't know if they would have gotten D1 offers if they were at a public school. To say a kid from a private received an offer that his same talent wouldn't have gotten him at a public are very few and far between.

Cougarfan222 is fake poster using a made up name to mock my posts. Pay no attention to his post. He is doing this to make Hoban look bad as he is a public school whiner.

I don't understand how a Manchester thread, or any thread for that matter, always ends up being a Private vs Public or a Hoban thread! Manchester is a D5 school that could care less about that crap!

No problem Bobby. It's just old news and, as it turned out, no news.
