When is the last time a team from this conference one more than one playoff game in a season? Outside of maybe Streetsboro.
Conference still goes through Streetsboro. Ravenna QB and skill back. Cloverleaf has turned around their program. Coventry was much improved. Woodridge has a lot back, especially up front, Nortonś program is solid, Field must replace a lot, and Springfield is Springfield.
I disagree with some of this. Since when has Norton's program been solid? Coventry improved? They went 4-6....
Who would be Mogadore Field's biggest rival in the MAC. Really doubt it would compare to Mogadore, Rootstown or Southeast. Even before Mantua Crestwood left they were a bigger rival than any MAC school currently. Really don't see HUGE crowds at vs Lodi Cloverleaf, Norton, Coventry, Woodridge for that matter even Ravenna. Maybe Springfield but really bigger gates for the local Portage county schools...no question.
Field has a big rivalry with Springfield. Springfield with Coventry, Field, and Ellet (the shoe). Coventry with Springfield and Norton. Coventry and Springfield played for “the trophy” last year. Coventry-Springfield rivalry dates back to 1929. Same with Norton starting in 1929. They play for the victory bell
Im looking forward to seeing how some of those faces perform this track season. Maan, its been some time since I seen coventry light up the track. We coulda had 2 state champions last year, but we was robbed.Coventry returns 15 starters from last year. Their biggest loss was losing all district second team power running back Brendan Longwell. Senior Daequan Dudley (RB) will be expected to do that job this year...take over at running back. Trevoun Bulls saw time last year at running the ball as well. He doubles on offense/defense and is a speedster on special teams. Coventry returns their sophomore quarterback Chase Rankin and two All-Mac second team wide receivers Chris Wilcox and Brady Watson so their passing game will be a real threat. Anchoring the offensive line is returning center Cole Moyers also all MAC second team honors last year. They were all sophomores last year and will be around for another two years. On defense Coventry returns last years starters Zareus Sustanek and Rhett Evans at defensive end and Steven Davis, Brayden Clark, and Matthew Skaggs at defensive back.
And Springfield..well they continue to struggle and with the district's financial struggles it can unfortunately only get worse..Coventry, Streetsboro, and Woodridge return a number of starters; and Ravenna returns really good skill. Cloverleaf has some numbers. Norton is a wildcard while Field will have to replace some of their lineman, a QB and a back. It is setting up to be a great year.
