The Fighting Tigers lose 13 Seniors

Jake Isaac -------- QB/S - 2 year starter - played both ways
Eli Willis ---------- TE/C - 2 year starter - played both ways
Andrew Scott ---- HB/S - first year starting, played 4 or 5 games before season ending injury
Jourdyn Barrow - HB/C - started the last half of the season on Defense
Travis Gayhart -- TE/DE - played sparingly
Chase Rowe ----- HB/S --- I don't believe he played this season due to injury
Vance Day ------- C/NG -- don't believe he played much this year due to injury
Isaiah Dodgion -- T/DT -- not sure how much he played
Levi Langdon ---- C/NG -- 2 year starter but missed the first half of this season due to injury
Tyler Webb ------ T/DT -- 4 year starter both ways
Larry Morris ----- T/DT -- first year playing, started on Defense
Tre Neal --------- K ------- I believe he was a 2 year starter at Kick offs and extra points

Feel free to correct anything I have wrong, just going from my memory.

I was really impressed with Webb's and Morris' lateral speed down the line on defense...Morris was a force against RH. Would like to have seen what kind of player he could have been had he played and developed all 4 years, he is a very good athlete and played very good for first year playing. I think they will be tough to replace, just sheer size with that quickness/speed for lineman of their size.

Ironton will also have both Carrico kids next year (The young one moves up from jr high and will contribute somewhere from day one- he's a heck of anathlete). Along with Wilson and Seth Fosson coming back hopefully to full health.

Looks like we have a nice group coming back next year, Webb and Morris will be missed and I hear a few freshmen will have a good shot at playing, all they need to now is get to the weight room, won't be long tigers

it should it's the exact opposite of last year it looks like. unless there are changes otherwise we have not seen yet.if there was any change it would likely be a week on the ovc part of the schedule as far as different weeks.

Went down and watched wrestling practice only 2 high school kids wrestling and they are freshmen. What happened to the coach that said if you are not playing basketball you will need to wrestle. Same old Ironton it's way over due for a change in the football coaching staff.

I don't think wrestling participation reflects a coaching staff change for football. However, Ironton doesn't seem to be as physically dominant as they have been in the past, so maybe you're right.

I see your point but they go hand in hand. When kids are not participating in competitive sports I think they lose an edge. Ironton has really lost their edge and that is a direct reflection of the Ironton football staff. But I guess winning the OVC is the new high for the coaching staff and players. Ironton has not won a game outside the conference in 2 years.

Not sure if they will compete with Coldwater or not, but I am impressed with the kids who are in the weight room ever since the season ended. I was in there the other day and Brandon Walker had those kids going to the point they couldn't go no more. Some of the kids were shaking when they got finished. I Believe this group is really hungry.

Next year we do have big losses in Webb, Langdon, Morris, Isaac, Barrow and Willis. They played big roles and will be tough to replace.

However, on the line returning this year we have Returning starters Redmond, Pleasant, Klaiber and Cody Rowe. Brady Rowe played a bunch before his injury along with the two freshmen this year Topping and Eaches. C. Rowe, Klaiber, Pleasant and Redmond were all working out hard in the weight room the other day when I was there, while Eaches and Topping are on the wrestling team. All will be good athletes and will work hard in the offseason to get ready. B. Rowe is healing good and on a good path to be ready by summer.

In our backfield, I could see Wilson, Caricco, Duncan and Fosson all returning along with having C. Large added into the mix along with Barnes, Thomas, Grizzle and Payne.

Defensively, I could see a number of options happening, the younger Carrico will probably find a way into the lineup, not sure where. He is a dandy athlete and if he comes out hard he should be playing. I could see Large and G. Caricco playing safety or corner. Thomas will be back at another corner. Ends this year could be Humphreys, who started most of this year at DE, Bryant, who started his freshman and sophomore years, Fosson, who started majority of his freshman year. Noseguard I can see either Fosson, Pleasant or Duncan. Linebackers Wilson, Duncan, Pleasant or Fossom. Burris could step in at many of those spots.

Kids grow up so quickly and get taller and stronger. Never know who might show up and take a position they like. I saw some kids really working last year that might not have gotten a lot of varsity time or were injured. Some who come to mind were Depriest, Barker, Griffith, McSorely, Meyers, Burris, Perry, Higgins, Barnes. It will be fun seeing which kids work the hardest in the off season and earns the positions. It should be a good group and a lot of competition.

Great post but why aren't any of these kids out for wrestling? Whatched the junior high team wrestling and there are some tuff kids out. I don't see the support from the football coaches to get this program rolling. All I hear is them complaining about the time it takes up and cuts into weight training. Are you kidding these kids that are out for wrestling don't even need to lift they will be in twice the shape as the ones that are lifting weights. If you have ever wrestled you would know what I mean. So coach Vass get off your butt and support the wrestling team or move on. I am tired of your staffs lack of support for other sports.

I went and watched Eaches wrestle this weekend. For just starting last year and basically only been wrestling for about 6 months he did a pretty good job. He went 1-3, but his three loses were to like 2 juniors and a senior and all three were top guys in the district last year. Point wise he was up on them and he ended up getting pinned because hes lacking in experience. He will be a good one by the time hes a junior hes only a freshman right now. All the linemen need to get out and wrestle it will help out hugely next season.

Itd be great if all of them had wrestling. It would help the league out I think. I think Portsmouth, Rock Hill, and Coal grove are only ones without wrestling right now.

It is a shame that Ironton does not have anymore kids out at the varsity level. I point that right back to the football coaching staff. How much better would the line and everyone else be if they participated in wrestling. I guess we will never know until the football staff is gone.

Same can be said for the track team. Kids need to be out running in the spring. This would help also. Needs to be an expectation by all coaching staffs to support all programs in Tigertown.

Both of you guys are right, all the staffs should be supporting each other and getting guys out playing the other sports. Its good to lift all year to get ready for football, but doing these other sports makes you a more well rounded athlete and helps you in so many ways.

I think so as well, I always have. I mean I had no interest in track whatsoever. but had to. and I loved throwing shot and discus, mind you only through my sophomore year. but I enjoyed it.
it was that or baseball, I love baseball but never played other than pony stuff.
