The Withrow Offense

They are 50-50 pass/run and 75% of their yardage is via the pass.

Is there another team in the country with 3 four star wide receivers?? Doubtful

WR1 #15 Chris Henry So. 6’5” 4 star commit Ohio State
WR2 #3 Quintin Simmons Jr. 6’1” 165lb 4 star with 17 offers including Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Cincinnati, Kentucky
WR3 #6 Kristian Bonner Jr. 6’0” 180lb
WR4 #11 Dantrell Moses So. 5’9” 180lb
WR5 #18 Myles Rochelle Sr. 6’6” 190lb
WR6 #21 Teryhon Nichols Sr. 6’0” 185lb 4 star commit Kentucky

Keep in mind that Withrow's 3 opponents are a combined 1-8 as we consider these receiver stats

Withrow receivers through 3 games (receptions, yards)
Chris Henry 13 for 193 (14.8 ypc) and 1 TD
Quintin Simmons 8 for 187 (23.3 ypc) and 2 TDs
Dantrell Moses 14 for 169 (12.1 ypc) and 2 TDs
Myles Rochelle 6 for 92 (15.3 ypc) and 2 TDs
Kristian Bonner 6 for 52 yards (8.7 ypc) and 1 TD
Teryhon Nichols 3 for 41 yards (13.7 ypc) and 1 TD

Nichols is the full time safety, 2nd in tackles, 1st in tackles for loss and interceptions

Simmons is also a dangerous kick returner and ball carrier (jet sweeps, wide pitches)

The McCallie passing attack is much different than the Withrow passing attack.
McCallie's QB makes it happen whereas the Withrow receivers make it happen.
 
Very intriguing game.

This game will probably come down to depth and Withrow wearing down as the game drags on, but it's a super interesting match-up. I hope it's a competitive game and kudos to both schools for scheduling it.
 
Looking forward to this - always wanted to see a game at Withrow. Any reason to worry about having to buy tix ahead of time?

Looks like Taft, not Hughes, has played X the fewest times-- I can remember Taft showing up for a game at X with less than 30 players on the squad (probably that 1978 or '79 game)... Hughes was once kind of a "power" (as was Western Hills)--but it's been so long...the games with Aiken and Woodward were competitive in the l970's-- which is probably why (along with proximity) those series lasted to a bit later time than the ones against Hughes, Withrow, Taft, and Courter Tech... After Coombs came to Colerain, it became really hard for Aiken to keep any of the best players in their district at home-- same thing happened to ALL of the public school districts surrounding Colerain's district (e.g.- Oak Hills, Mt. Healthy, North College Hill, Harrison, even Northwest within the district itself)-- now, after Bolden left, not so much...

Since Walnut Hills is really also one of these City of Cincinnati Public Schools (and used to be in the same league with the rest of these), it would be interesting to see what Walnut's record is vs. X-- they had the most recent game(s) with X of all of the CPS teams-- a playoff matchup, followed by a regular season game...

Great observations and comments!

Eastern Cincinnati Conference (X leads 32-1)
Anderson: 9 games; 1992-2000; X leads 8-1
Walnut Hills: 22 games; 1941, 1945-50, 1958, 1968, 1972, 1974-80, 1982-83, 2017-18, 2020; X leads 22-0
Winton Woods: 2 games; 1998 and 2007; X leads 2-0
 
Here goes Cov falling in love with the deep shot... ugh
I am ok with it.
X proved they have a vertical passing game....Taylor, McClatchey, Bennett and Betts are all deep threats.

Herbstreit was 15 for 26 for 212 yards (16 yards per catch) and 1 TD
There were 4 dropped balls, 1 was a 36 yard TD and the other a 34 yard gain
Should have been a 300 yard passing day with a couple more TDs and a more comfortable win.

X Receivers
Bennett 5 catches for 98 yards
Taylor 3 catches for 60 yards
McClatchey 2 catches for 25 yards
Vollmer 3 catches for 4 yards
TStegbauer 1 catch for 13 yards
Napier 1 catch for 12 yards
*TE Klare should be back for the next game

X Defense
The defense limited the Tigers to 9 first downs and 145 total yards.
Leading tacklers were Beck (9 tackles and a sack) and Clapper (6 tackles, 1 sack and 1 tackle for loss)

The pass defense was excellent as the QB was 7 for 19 for 37 yards (entered game averaging 17 for 24 for 246 yards)
Most of the yards gained were on QB scrambles as he rushed 12 times for 54 yards.
The other ball carriers were bottled up for most of the night...there was a 22 yard gain by Henry on a broken play (pitch to WR who was to throw but coverage was good) and 2 rushes by RBs for 1st downs, 11 yards and 5 yards.

Withrow's TD was on a 94 yard kickoff return to start the 2nd half.

Spencer Stegbauer will get the start at RB tonight.
A tough dude and got hurt at one point but went back in.
Stegbauer had 13 carries for 34 yards (2.6 yards per carry) and 1 TD
Herbie was the leading rusher with 5 carries for 36 yards, majority in the 4th quarter
Napier had 5 carries for just 2 yards
Tigers were able to contain Vollmer......he had 3 catches for 4 yards and 4 rushes for 27 yards
*Need Britt back healthy for his big play ability.....think he'll be back for the next game.

Regarding Spectrum broadcasts, I think Vince Suriano does a good job. Good insight as a former coach. Pretty sure he won a state title while at Anderson.
 
Elder played Saturday, so I traveled to Hyde Park to watch the Bombers. Few general comments, offense looks very sluggish, they seem to never know where to line up and had way too many penalties. QB and skill players are ok, o-line gets a pretty good push, defense is clearly their strength, front 6 are exceptional and the secondary is very discipline. After further investigation, their defense is anchored by 3 westsiders, Hammonds (DLine), Beck (LB) and Weber (DB). The Elder game will be a great match up between these teams. Elder offense is all power and X defense is really good. I would say Elder has the advantage on Offense and X the advantage on Defense.

Solid assessment.
X is resting up for Elder.
This week's game was cancelled because the morons X was suppose to play scheduled the game in Dayton, a clear violation of league rules with regard to travel distance for a GCL game.
Idiots
