    Region 1 Championship: St. Edward (12-1) vs. Medina (13-0)

    LW and Springfield can lock down a couple of the Medina WRs, but can they lock down all 5? Medina's 5 wide-out offense is different including Allar being 7 yards back on the snap compared to any other HS offense. Allar is a P5 QB, who because of his size (6'5", 230#) and arm strength, reminds...

    Region 1 Championship: St. Edward (12-1) vs. Medina (13-0)

    Both teams have a good idea of what they are going to see from each other. At this point in the season, a lot is about match-ups. The ‘X’ factor could be injury/health status. There were posts on Yappi and media reports about last week’s games where it was noted some starters got dinged up or...

    Strategy to survive and possibly beat St. Ignatius

    One previous suggestion was to have 8 behind the ball Avon put 10 behind the ball. Their focus was on tackling, not to win the ball but just to disrupt, and blocking shots The strategy appeared to be play for a 0-0 and take your chances on PK's because the Avon goalkeeper is very, very good.

It is dark with no lighting. For both northbound and southbound on Hadcock, you will see a yellow school crossing sign...
