Garfield vs. Copley- At Green!

By admin Published: August 26, 2008

Garfield and Copley will square off against each other Friday night but the game will be at Green. The game was originally scheduled to be played at Copley at 7 p.m. Copley athletic director Dana Addis sent out an email regarding the change Tuesday afternoon. My guess is the new articifial surface that is beibng installed at Copley isn't quite done yet.

Beetdiggers (That's Right) In Canton

By admin Published: August 25, 2008

Canton's Fawcett Stadium will be the site for a football quadruple-header Saturday in the fourth annual ``Kirk Herbstreit Varsity Football Series.'' In the final game of the evening at 8 p.m., Massillon (1-0) will take on the Jordan (Utah) Beetdiggers (what a GREAT nickname!) Herbstreit is a former Ohio State quarterback and currently is an ESPN college football analyst.

Canton McKinley also will play in the Herbstreit event. The Bulldogs (0-1) will face Indianapolis Cathedral at 2 p.m. The Fighting Irish won the Class 4A state championship last year.

Game Wrap up: Northwest-Orrville

By jcfortun Published: August 23, 2008

Northwest held off a tough Orrville team 34-13 Friday night at Smilek Stadium. The Indians, behind the running of Dan Beers, scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull away on a hot muggy night.

Despite the 21-point win, the game was extremely close for most of the night with the weather playing a tremendous factor. Both teams lost plenty of players to heat cramping.

Tahj Dent's 100 Yards to Glory

By admin Published: August 23, 2008

Buchtel head coach Ricky Powers has seen it all in his days as a former all-state running back at Buchtel, an all-Big Ten performer at Michigan and a former NFL player.

But in the Griffins' 45-29 loss at Massillon Friday, Powers said he witnessed something he had never seen in person. His senior quarterback and starting defensive back Tahj Dent returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown. The third-quarter score cut Massillon's lead to 17-15.

Revere 24, Firestone 0- The Day After

By admin Published: August 23, 2008

* MORGAN'S MVP: Revere junior running back John Battaglia earned the game ball. He's about 5-9, 175 pounds but he runs much bigger. Against Firestone, Battaglia rushed for 179 yards and two touchdowns on 39 carries. That's right...39 carries!!!!

I decided to look at the boxscores that we received and printed in Saturday morning's paper (there were 28 boxscores, 56 teams in the edition I received at home) and wanted to see how Battaglia's individual rushing carries stacked up with some of the team's total rushes. Well, if I counted correctly, Battaglia outrushed 39 other teams. He tied with St. Thomas Aquinas and Walsh Jesuit.

* OTHER MVP CANDIDATES: I have to say that the entire Revere defense earned special consideration. This group, led by Dan Steinkerchner, Dave Flegal, Donald Day, Claudio Manera, Tim Bihun and Mike Monte, never let Firestone put together any type of sustainable drives and didn't give up the big plays. Also, Revere coach Terry Cistone raved about the way fullback Andrew Anacki sacrificed his body blocking for Battaglia.

Archbishop Hoban 27, Garfield 26 OT- The Day After

By admin Published: August 22, 2008

My observations from Archbishop Hoban's 27-26 overtime win against Garfield in the season-opener for both teams:

* MORGAN'S MVP: No question, my pick is 5-foot-9, 175-pound Garfield junior running back Tyson Gulley. He rushed for a game-high 225 yards on 25 carries. Gulley rushed for over 130 yards- just in the first quarter, with touchdown runs of 60 and 58 yards.

Football poll: Week 1

By RonPreps Published: August 21, 2008

The Beacon Journal's ‘‘Power Poll’’ ranks teams based on expectations for the 2008 season within their OHSAA division relative to other area teams. It is not a predictor of head-to-head strength. Here are the first rankings with division and 2007 record.
1. Walsh Jesuit (III, 9-2)
Quarterback Kyle Snyder and running backs Cameron Ontko and Armand Dehaney give the Warriors plenty of offensive firepower. Big Ten recruits Pat McShane (Indiana) and Brian Smith (Northwestern) will anchor the lines. If the Warriors' defense holds up, this could be a big season on Wyoga Lake Road.
2. Louisville (II, 12-3)
Quarterback Neal Seaman and receiver-defensive back Brandon Mathie are back for a Leopards team that was the 2007 Division II state runner-up.
3. Northwest (III, 12-1)
The Division III poll champion has some holes to fill, but lineman Nate Klatt (Michigan State) and running back Danny Beers head an impressive list of returnees.
4. St. Vincent-St. Mary (IV, 9-3)
Coach Dan Boarman's second Irish team, which will be led by receiver Todd Culver and linebacker Harvie Tuck IV, is primed for another season to remember for the Green Street faithful.
5. Massillon (I, 4-6)
Jason Hall is seeking to make an impressive debut as the Tigers' head coach, just as he did in 2007 with an inexperienced Nordonia team. Running back J.T. Turner and linebacker Matt Rose are the leaders
6. Highland (III, 6-4)
The Hornets' fans have been waiting for this senior class to arrive, and that time is now. Back Chris Snook and linebacker Tyler Houska anchor strong offensive and defensive units.
7. Nordonia (I, 10-2)
The Knights, one of the surprise teams in the area last season, will sneak up on no one this season. Tailback John Hamilton and linebacker Luke Batton are potent offensive and defensive leaders.
8. Aurora (III, 9-2)
Lineman Adam Bellamy, an Ohio State recruit, and defensive back-wide receiver Dee Brizzolara will lead the Greenmen's quest for a fourth consecutive appearance in the state playoffs.
9. Wadsworth (I, 9-2)
