Re: Should Public and Private Schools Have Separate Athletic Postseasons?

CB is great but all private schools would fit nicely in the d1 bracket. No separate class. Everyone gets to stay in the OHSAA but it would be a fairer CB. Take some of the smaller d1 schools that don’t belong and reassign the rest of the divisions accordingly. It’s not rocket science. it’s the only...

Re: 2019 Ironton Tigers Outlook

The 2018 season was quite similar to the 2017 season. It wasn't about youth. It wasn't about conditioning. The upside to the 2018 season was attitude. The players did not let up like in recent years. Still present in 2018 and if things do not change, is the drive killing penalties and turnovers. You...

Re: Could Parker be the next "Great SEO Hope" ?

I'd like to see him at Ohio U. Close to home and a better chance of starting or seeing significant playing time early on. I think that would help keep his interest up in getting a degree as well. Going to a big D1 school and getting swallowed up in the process could result in a lack of interest on h...

I will be happy to get this party started. At eastern, we take great pride in the accomplishments of our teams from 1971 and 1981. The 71 team was lead by the greatest coach in eagle histroy, Roger "Buzz" Kirkhart! One of the top players on that team was John "chuck" Sheets. we would have won a sta...

I only wish the best for Parker. If he does go on to the next level, I hope someone takes the time to explain the importance in obtaining a degree. It will last him longer than any athletic achievement at any level.

If I am not mistaken, not only can you fair catch a kickoff, you can also make a legal forward pass as long as you do not make a step after the fair catch.

Ironton is definitely the favorite in this one. Home and experience will give them an edge but If burg can figure out their from six on defense, they will be fine going into this game.
I don't expect anything from the Burg but the best. This will be a good game for both teams to open the season.

Re: Ironton vs wheelersburg 2019

The Burg football program has worked itself into reload mode and has been there for quite a while. The Tigers are in rebuild mode and will improve. It takes time and consistency. This rivalry will be strong once again. It has been a good one for both programs.

Re: Burned out of playing sports

What should be prioritized is education. Students in a typical high school receive more academic scholarships than they do athletic scholarships. I agree 79Tiger.

Re: 2019 Wheelersburg Pirates

All of this nonsense about transfers etc goes absolutely nowhere. If a player has a Burg jersey on at the start of the season, even if he lives in Timbuktu, it doesn't matter. He plays for the Burg and represents the Burg. Same with any other school. Get over it.
