I thought Backus looked really good throwing and running the ball.

UA always plays JV and freshman on Saturday

Three blow wins for the UA program. Is the young Backus related to the RB from UA a few years ago?

It takes a while to get things going when you start with 90 kids that you know little to nothing about. That same coaching staff beat your falcons last year with their B team.
Neutral observer: I watched this game and was told by a Moeller parent that both A & B were mixed for that game (may have contributed to disorganization). I don't have a dog in the fight just happened to be in the area and decided to take in the game. What I observed was a bit disappointing from a Moeller perspective. There were every bit of 60-70 kids (estimation) dressed for Moeller. Even if it takes a bit of time to get things going as TTitans99 said, I did not see the level of private school recruited athletes on the field that I came to check out. Usually raw talent stands out and play makers make plays, even in the midst of disorganization but there was nothing going on the Moeller side of the ball. I too would be disappointed if I paid Moeller prices to get beat by a much smaller public school, A or B team or both is really irrelevant as Moeller recruited these kids to play football or someone made a sizeable donation for them to be on the team (technically this should not even be a competition simply due to school size). Massie had 25-30 kids dressed but appeared to be a well balanced team with some good collective talent for a school their size. Hopefully Moeller gets things going to sort out all the numbers (great problem to have) and hopefully this is a sign of good depth for future Massie teams, I personally simply enjoy good football.

Moeller has over 90 kids on the freshman level. Sometimes they will divide a and b players to even the teams. This was not the case as Massillon was bringing their freshman team down on Saturday to play Moeller's true A team. They didn't go out and recruit over 90 kids to play football and nobody makes a sizeable donation to play. Moeller like every school has many kids who just want to play and be part of the team regardless of their skill and ability level. They will get better but when you start with that many kids who you know nothing about it takes a while to even figure out what position best fits every player and then get them enough meaningful reps in practice to perform at competitive level. Clinton Massive has a solid program and their team has been playing together since pee wee football. It should be no big surprise that they would be far advanced. Had you come Saturday and seen Moeller and Massillon play A vs A I think you would have been shocked at the difference in size, athleticism and execution. Coaching freshman football at Moeller, X or Elder is a very daunting task especially at the beginning of the year. The exact same coach's beat a very good Massillon team a couple of days later.

Another thing to point out is that CM freshman group is very talented. I could be wrong, but I'm not sure they have ever lost a game going back to starting in pee wee and if they have it is very few. In fact, they were rarely scored upon. If they continue to develop, which never seems to be a problem in the CM program, I would look for them to have a lot of success throughout high school.
