Yes he had except for 1 bad pass and fumble that led to nordonia 14 points.
A. Heard Nesic may still end up kicking for Highland... This would definitely be a huge addition.
B. Heard RR had a staph outbreak...
Nesic will be kicking for the hornets this year after originally opting out. Don't know how great of a leg he has (more of the playmaker on the soccer field) but ill take a soccer player over a soph qb...
And also agree that Nordonia's QB had a cannon-looked 6'+
Very true. I saw TP come out with the calf cramp. They are both keys to the offense and defense, but I think we have the depth to lean on other guys for a series here or there. Definitely a matter coaches should be looking into. TP, Maz, Kroney, Serafin, Justik, Butler are all the major two way guys I believe. TP, Maz, Kroney, and Serafin are the 4 that coaches really will have trouble pulling off the field mid-game to rest. I hope Serafin rotating to TE and HB could be part of the solution to that issue.Nice start for the Hornets. I agree with Bobcat's assessment of the game - with the addition that I am concerned about our key two-way players late in the game. Maz and TP were cramping up in the third quarter. Kroney is another guy that could run into that problem. Coaches need to find a way to rest those guys for a series or two earlier in the game so they are available when the money is on the line in the fourth quarter. I would hate to look up in the fourth quarter of the Wadsworth game and see TP and Maz laying on the sideline with cramps.
I think the Hornets will rebound nicely this week. Scholle had a tough day throwing the ball against North Roylaton, but the experience was invaluable. I say he throws for 180+ and runs for a 100+ this week.
I am very concerned about Serafin. Very gimpy on that knee. Maybe a week off vs. Tallmadge? :shrug:
I am also still concerned about Maz getting a blow prior to the fourth quarter. I hope coach can find a way to spell him a little earlier in the game so he is ready to go at crunch time. He was out on defense in the fourth quarter against North Royalton with cramps, and Popson held his own at corner :thumb: for 8 or 9 minutes. But I am sure the time will come when we will need Maz fresh in the fourth quarter to win a close SL game.
Seems subbing has been an issue with lack of depth and need for multiple players to play both ways
Maz did not play defense in quarters 2,3, and 4 against Green. Not sure if that was a health related decision or just for rest. But yes, there are a lot of kids going both ways all night for the Hornets.
It is time for the seniors to step up and be leaders so this season does not go south. Hornets have a chance to salvage a decent season so long as they don't shut it down early. It usually takes good, strong senior leadership to finish strong after a couple of disappointing losses. Here's hoping they get it headed in the right direction against Barberton.
I don't know if the Hornet players and coaches have been reading these posts (as im sure some actually have) but they made some changes and it worked.
The seniors stepped up and rallied and led a team to a victory over Wadsworth (proving they could have done this against Revere and Green)
And the dynamics of position changing has been good. TP has been getting some carries and taking a load off on the running game, while the defense has switched it up and has Petrilla playing linebacker now inorder to accomodate the teams needs.
I like it.
Did Petrilla play LB in the Wadsworth game or did they just move him as safety into the box. Whichever it was, he played his heart out. The key was the corners one-on-one coverage, preventing the big play and letting us stack up against the run. Great effort by players and great coaching.
