Same thing was said about Itonton in the 80’s and 90’s including people from wheelersburg, now it’s happening to them they don’t like it but that’s how people talk but I do agree people wanna be around a winning program and will transfer or move into that teams district without being recruited
I agree 100%. I wouldn’t want my kid playing for a losing program
Why not hope that your kid could help turn the program around? That's the way it should be!
That's wishful thinking, but some programs are beyond help. Does anyone think the kids who played at Northwest or South Point think fondly of their playing days? "Hey guys, remember when we went 0-10 and lost every game by 30 points? Those were some good times...."

Ironton did recruit, especially in the 90's, I was actively recruited by them. They still recruit, their current QB was recruited thanks to a former judge.

I always heard the stories. Had factory jobs lined up and housing for your parents these guys had the Catholics complaining and they could back it up hands down the best SEOPS program back in the 70s 80s 90s. Ironton was the most feared team around. The things they pulled make burg and Jackson look like angels.

They definitely had great football teams. I don't know if they made anyone look like angels though. Lol

First off the QB at Ironton was told by Wheelersburg HC coach that he would not be the starting QB and he decided to leave. Bottom line!

That doesnt mean ironton didn’t ask him to come play for them. But who cares? Burgs QB the past two years was really good at that position. He probably wouldn’t have beat him out and would’ve played somewhere else until this year when he would have played that position. I’ve heard of big time college QBs play other positions until their senior year so that wouldn’t effect how he was going to perform. He probably saw that he could play QB right away at ironton and chose to go there. Regardless it’s been like two years ago. Burg probably trying to figure out who will QB this year. I wasn’t sure if the upcoming sophomore could do it but watching him in basketball and his aggressive play, I may have different thought. He’s a gamer.

Don't the two QBs have the same last name?

He was recruited, ask the right people. They were on him during his freshman year while he was still playing freshman football. It's fact. They were recruiting him before he was told he wouldn't start as a sophmore. Of course he wouldn't start as a sophomore, they had Trent salyers and a pretty darn good back up in Mack dyer who was district offensive player of the year before I believe.

So much for working hard and earning something. Sadly our society is ok with selling your kid to the highest bidder. Which there is still bidding going on with their QB. Raceland is still in the mix for next year, he's not happy just handing the ball off at ironton.

Looks like the hero of the anti-Burg crowd, Madison's coach Poff, is stepping down from coaching.

Apparently he's still salty about Burg football and the Burg community from this interview following his decision to leave:

My bad. I may or may not have trolled them on Yappi. Those Madison and Coldwater people are easily triggered

By the way what is the next rumor you are going to start? So all of us can be prepared to state the truth. Stop spreading rumors!

At least for two seasons. Looks like the Chillicothe game will be replacing the Bishop Hartley game.

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.

Still sports should foster an environment of fairness and loyalty. If adults and school districts allow this type of behavior what are we teaching kids? Hey if you don't like something you don't have to work to make it the best you can be, just move around until you find the easy way out. Also in high school it says a lot about competitive equality, no district should be able to create an unfair advantage. I feel bad for any player who now has less of an opportunity to play because of even as few as one kid who moved in just to get out of a different school district. I'm not saying any player on burg moved or transferred for right or wrong reasons, but when you develop a pattern and win...Haters gonna Hate even if it's legit! So Burg fans, no one has to get over it more than you might need to get over other schools beating the dead horse, if you win and have a high CB #, you will continue to hear it from the peanut gallery.

Not real impressed with the GC pick up b/c we have scheduled them a couple times in recent yrs and they always end up dropping us after we kick their asses the first game. I can’t wait for the game against blazer. I’ve been wanting to see us play them forever. The chillicothe pick up in 2020 should be a good one

GC has been better in recent years. Plus if it is only a two year deal, then that would be a good slot to put another Hartley or Waterson type team in.
