Springfield had some awesome teams in the 90's. Two back to back 10-0 seasons and one #1 AP poll championship. They lost to state runner up Buchtel in a game that I believe had they not started out with cold feet could have beaten them, very early pick 6 sealed their fate early on and the QB settled down quickly. They also had one of the best youth programs around, second to only Greens.Remember when Springfield was in the NBC and actually competed?
Springfield is going to be lucky to be a running HS here in 4-5 years. Its REALLY bad right nowSo what happens to a place like Springfield? Solid program, solid schools back in the day. More and more rentals? Aging population with no kids? This happens in more places than Springfield. Why can't other districts and towns learn from these situations and do things to proactively avoid it.
