McSurley arrived and started building that program. He's another Jay Niswonger. He's had more success than Jay but he's the same style of coach. The community buying in and folks moving into that area of Clinton county helps.Anderson, DeSales, Western Brown.
however, Clinton Massies culture probably contributes a good bit to their success in the postseason. they have also been their before. how it developed? i’m not sure. seems like they have a very good support system in the Massie district. i think the SWBL adding them will be a positive for everyone involved.
He could have gone to Bradford and done the same thing. It's the coach, he makes that johnnie and joes better. Period. Natural ability helps but any kid in the right system will flourish.
I'm sure his assistant coaches could coach anywhere.
Speaking from experience, I've seen this at most of the MAC schools, Valley View, Clinton Massie, Tipp City, Milton-Union, Waynesville, where coaching is the difference.
You can have d1 prospects but if they don't have the coaching, they aren't going to reach their potential.
As for Wilmington, they are a former SWBL member, so they might join if they are added to the small school side. Massie is a no-brainer.
I'd like to see them add a really good d5-6 school. Problem is, who would that be?
