I'm headed out to Toledo Whitmer to watch my boy, and watch Dru Jones take it to the Panthers up in TooLeeDoo.

Yeah we're the underdog, I wouldn't have it any other way. :twisted:

Hey Spin,

We'll have them all as they're called in by our kids at the game. As up to date as we can get.

Stay tuned

Ursuline playing in Div 5 is a joke. Makes me sick.

Mooney is in 4 again? Didn't they get moved up out of D4 about 7 years ago, and wind up in D2 or D1?

That's about like the Colts playing Case and BW...

They won D-IV championship last year, but moved to D-III the season prior. They should do very well.

I would hope so.

I think if you recruit, you're Div I. That's the only fair way to do it.

You'd think that if a team did recruit they'd have enrollment to be D-I, but not always the case. All schools have some type of recruiting philosophy and this includes public schools too...look at Glenville. Although a recent trend in kids saying no to Glenville's sometimes ridiculous offers may have stemmed that a bit. Dan Goodrum and Toney Foster of VASJ and Devon Jennings are a few kids that decided it was better for them and their school to stay put and not succumb to the offers from Glenville or promises of college scholarships just by being on the roster....never happens that way. College coaches recruit from how they see an athlete perform in school and on the field, NOT from Ted Ginn saying "he's good."

Stay at YOUR school and help YOUR school be a winner. Don't ride the coattails of success, make your own.

I agree wholeheartedly. My alma-mater Chippewa would have a much better team, if the kids from the Catholic school stayed local, instead of going to the Catholic high schools in Akron. And the best public school players weren't lured away by D1 schools like Wadsworth.

To me, the public schools that do the recruiting, Massillon, Canton McKinley, Glenville, well most D1 teams, they're all Division 1. So moving the parochial schools to D1 would put them all in one class.

Isn't there a small high school in Columbus or Cincinnati that is made up of nothing but athletes?

Why? If you can put yourself into a better situation that may get you a free education out of it than go for it. The QB thats playing for St. Ig tonight grew up in our Willoughby Football league and I have no problem with him not playing for South. I also wont have a problem when Stanzi's younger brother ( http://hawkeyesports.cstv.com/sports/m- ... cky00.html ) or Grbac's nephews go elsewhere than South.

Youngstown teams doing well so far, and doing very well against teams in the greater cleveland area.

Ursuline
Lakeview
Boardman
South Range
Howland

all beat Cleveland Metro teams...

My picks for D4-D5-D6
Mooney - Ursuline - JFK respectively.....

D1 Ball-Cleveland Public Schools has open enrollment where any kid living in the district can go there. So they recruit within their own school district. Obviously, teams like Mooney can't recruit enough kids to get to D1 but those kids they get are studs (2 kids to Penn St. and one to ND). They are the Ignatius-Eds of that area. It doesn't matter what district (level) you are in you can get great players if you can recruit from a 6 county area. Teams like Ignatius and Eds should dominate year in and year out. Year in and year out you see private schools contending for state championships. Take a school like Mooney who is ranked 13th in the country according to ESPN. I think they should've have a private school division and a public school division for each level.

Well it would be nice to have ONE PURE SPORT that wasn't ruled by money.

The Mooneys and might not be able to recruit enough kids to be a D1 school, but they recruit enough quality football players to be a D1 team. It is NOT FAIR.

My school (Chippewa D4) made the playoffs for the first time and got put up against Cardinal Moody. It was UGLY. Everyone was discouraged.

The following year Mooney won the D2 championship, Wadsworth nabbed our QB, and it took the wind out of everyone's sails. Nobody gives a shit anymore. Roster sizes dropped. It's back to being a girl's basketball school. What could be sadder than that?

You're not going to convince me that recruiting other team's football players is a good thing.

I said that for years, but what's the difference between a St Eds and a Massillon? Canton McKinley? It's hard to draw that line.

A stud player goes to Brunswick, how can you say whether that's recruiting or not?

Teams like Mooney and SVSM recruit the amount of boys they need to stay in their respected divisions. I went to the SVSM/Perry game last week and it was an absolute joke. It looked like a Varsity team playing against the freshmen. They have no business being in D4

i could of been on the field for the game tonight for the game at bedford. i go there and my AD asked me if i wanted to hold those sound circle things on the field for the game tonight, but i said thanks but no. i told him because it is too cold, but that was just a quick excuse because i was put on the spot. the reason i said no is becausse my niece is having her 2nd birthday party today....family first.
