Buckeye Valley hasn't been very good the last couple years, but IMO their schedule is significantly tougher than the Mad River division. Johnstown will probably be a very tough opponent.

I'd be very surprised if Graham doesn't go 1-4 or 0-5 between non-league and crossovers with everybody that they graduated.

Check out former Shawnee Brave QB Josh Mayfield. He looks good in a scarlet and grey uniform for Troy. Should have a great senior season.
Hmmm, never heard of him. I know there were Mayfields at SHS in the past and I think there was a Mayfield that was a middle school coach but from what I saw of SHS JV team a couple of years ago, they probably have their guy for this year...cant remember his name. SHS seems to have a had a decent run with QBs the last 4 years, so whoever is coaching those kids up, I wouldn't expect anything different with the current crop.

Wish him luck at Troy, whoever he is.

Buckeye Valley is horrendous. Graham should have a shot.

For context. His dad is the middle school coach you are thinking of and also teaches at the high school. His brother played on the State runner up team in 2011 and his sister-in-law was the kicker on that team. His mom also teaches in the Shawnee district.

Josh played basketball for my dad in middle school and I like him a lot and will be rooting for him this year. With that said I personally feel this was a move done exclusively for athletics.

Also, considering how successful Drew Mitch was as a receiver in 2019 I am not convinced that Josh wouldn't have been the QB in 2020 if he was still at SHS.

You'd think he'd stay at Shawnee with the success that they've had in the past compared to Troy. But who knows.

wow. i wonder why? cupboard dry up in German township? did he take another job?

will be extremely tough to hire someone this late
I thought I heard something about him taking an assistance job at a bigger school, but don't quote me on that. That does suck for the Warriors. He had them going in the right direction.

I wouldn't be surprised if he decided not to come back, but that job doesn't seem to be posted anywhere.

They do have a job or two available at the moment that it's traditionally easier to lure in a new coach with.

Edit: Job just posted this morning on the OHSAA's website.

Do y'all feel like the transfer of his stud RB after 2019 made him realize it is a losing proposition to stay?

This isn't MACland where loyalty trumps all. They're lucky that kid stayed for three years when there's a powerhouse D1 program 15 minutes away. It shouldn't have come as much of a surprise that he left for his senior year after lack of proper personnel to sling it around resulted in him getting stuffed in at RB and carrying it 30+ times 2-3 times in 2019. With how bad the team was last year he would have been called on to carry it 25-30 times a game. Running routes and playing with a lot of D1 talent at Springfield was much better preparation for what he'll be trying to do next as compared to getting beat up carrying the load on a team with limited talent.

it was hard to blame him for transferring- just not a good situation for him at Northwestern, and i’m a big fan of loyalty more so than anything. his move max sense and it worked out for him
 
Bandstra ... guy has a LOT of resources. He when the pandemic began, he started an online clinic group and has gotten a lot of big names on there.

quite impressive. don’t know much about his resume other than he was at Fairborn.

update: online clinics on youtube were great. hope he brings some much needed energy to Northwestern. Carter was on the right track but seemed to have some lean years recently with talent.

Does Not help when you have a stud RB give up on a team and transfer.

I think this guy was going to be a coordinator at KR this year before getting this job. Seems like he hasn't stayed anywhere too long before moving on. Seems to be a very motivated worker at his craft and job hunter if nothing else, which has been a good model for them over the last 10 years.

Hopefully they get 4-5 good years out of this guy and he rebuilds some positive momentum for the next guy before moving on. Their last few hires they've done a good job of getting in the door the best applicant, and I take it this guy was the best they could get that could fill a job in the building. I'd assume he is coming as a teacher as well as he seems to be certified in business, which is one of their teaching vacancies.
