Sleeping Giant, I'd say they're in a coma. I just asked a guy yesterday what in the world happened over there? He graduated in the 70's with over 1,000 in his senior class. I just don't see them being relevant in too many sports and they're still a big school.

doubt that ... CF pop in 1970 ... 49,678

... CF pop in 2010 ... 49, 652

... population of the city is about the same ... I doubt if the HS enrollment changed that much ... SR class of 1,000???????

Falls is in bad shape right now. But things change quick. the right combo of coach and administration and they would become competitive again in a hurry

Let's see what the Ohio Dept. of Education has to say about that:
Cuyahoga Falls City SD Headcount in 1978: 797 9th graders, 764 10th graders, 846 11th graders, 784 12th graders.

1988: 509 9th, 511 10th, 552 11th, 496 12th

1998: 484 9th, 453 10th, 458 11th, 388 12th

2008: 433 9th, 419 10th, 454 11th, 363 12th

2018: 357 9th, 391 10th, 413 11th, 349 12th

Population may be the same as years ago, but the percentage of the population that is of school age is clearly lower. There are many other similar sized communities in NE Ohio that are showing similar trends over the same time period. I'm willing to bet they lose a healthy percentage of kids to the local private schools, but they probably also gain a healthy of percentage of kids who are open enrolling from Akron City.

Based on the numbers a graduating class of 1000 in the late '60s/early '70s is believable. CF probably was the hot suburb to settle in during the Baby Boom.

I graduated from neighboring Stow in 78 and we had 535 graduate (abt 580 total) and Falls dwarfed us then. I'd be more surprised if they didn't have multiple year 1000 graduating classes

Falls graduating classes 1960-2000ish. I stand corrected, never hit 900
