We had a high school football thread last year, so let's continue with the fun.

Gil Brooks (my boss) goes into his 19th year as head coach of St. Joseph's Prep in Philadelphia. "The Prep" opens their season tonight ranked 3rd in the State of Pennsylvania (AP poll) in class AAAA playing 5th ranked Parkland HS of Allentown. This will be the first meeting of these two teams and this is the first year that parochial schools in PA will be eligible for state playoffs if I'm not mistaken.

Good luck to the Hawks! I'll report the outcome when I find out.

Here you go Terri. Ironton's head coach, Bob Lutz is 15 wins from having the all time Ohio record for wins. People in my hometown live and breath Fightin' Tiger football.
Our stadium was built by the semi pro team the Ironton Tanks, who later on merged with the Portsmouth Spartans and became the Detroit Lions.
The home side of the stadium is covered and on a Friday night when the Tigers play at home nobody misses a game. It'd be the perfect time to rob someone. lol
My buddy does this website and it was featured on ESPN a couple years ago.

Nice job, TerriB!

My alma mater, Northside High School of Warner Robins, Georgia, enters the season ranked #2 in the state after a 15-0 season last year.

This website ranks them #62 in the nation:

http://highschool.rivals.com/viewrankhs.asp?ra_key=457

I graduated from Northside in 1972. There is another poster here who graduated with me, but I'll let him weigh in on his own.

Go Eagles!!

New coach here as well.

Liked the old coach a lot, he ran a great program.

But he moved on to a private catholic powerhouse.

Can't wait for the season to start. New Quarterback this year.

I really like "one high school towns" which our league consists of. Lots of good rivalries.

Our is a two high school town. If you lived on the north side of Watson Blvd, you went to Northside. If you lived south of Watson, you went to Warner Robins High School. For decades, WR was a powerful football force, winning state titles and a couple of "national titles." I played ball for three years (if you call sitting on the bench "playing" ), and I don't think we even scored on WR the four years I was there.


I can't begin to describe the rivalry between those two schools, except to say that most businesses in town close at noon that Friday. Now Northside is the dominant school, and has done very well in recent years. Undefeated last year.

This sounds like it was a good game



Prep rallies past powerful Parkland
By Rick O'Brien

Inquirer Staff Writer

OREFIELD, Pa. - St. Joseph's Prep has certainly not shied away from elite-level competition in its football season openers.
Last night, the Hawks added Parkland to a list that in the last decade has included North Penn, Neshaminy, Pittsburgh Central Catholic, Bethlehem Catholic and Central Bucks West.

Parkland, last year's PIAA Class AAAA state playoff runner-up, went in ranked No. 25 in USA Today's preseason top 25 poll and carried a 23-game regular-season winning streak.

None of that mattered to Mike Yeager, committed to excelling in his debut as the Prep's go-to ballcarrier. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound halfback rushed 21 times for 110 yards and a go-ahead touchdown as the visiting Hawks downed the highly regarded Trojans, 20-13, at Parkland School District Stadium.

"He's a special player," Prep coach Gil Brooks said.

The Prep, which rebounded from a 10-0 deficit in the first half, netted 206 yards on 51 rushing plays. Mark Giubilato, a senior and first-year starter at quarterback, threw four passes.

The defense, led by junior linebacker Mike Labor, held the Trojans' wing-T attack to 51 rushing yards and 95 passing.

Midway through the fourth quarter, with Parkland ahead by 13-10, Yeager highlighted the winning drive by rushing six times for 30 yards. On second and goal from the 2, he flipped into the end zone.

St. Joseph's Prep 0 10 0 10 - 20

Parkland 7 3 3 0 - 13

P: Cecchini 9 pass from Keiper (Guth kick)

P: FG Guth 27

SJP: FG Skalamera 37

SJP: Compton 1 run (Skalamera kick)

P: FG Guth 30

SJP: Yeager 2 run (Skalamera kick)

SJP: FG Skalamera 21

the Weatherford Kangaroos head into their second season with the current coach, and onpoy return 15 players from the entire varsity team last year, which was not a good one. time to change the name and the AD. the school where I teach just added the middle school, not enough students for a team yet, but that day is coming! The Lighthouse Lions. I like it much better than "Go Roos."

This is my 7th year as a "band dad." I dutifully attend all the home and local games to support my daughter(s) in the marching band. Our season opener was last night against county rival, Evans HS. It was a good game, but our offense was a little off, giving up a few turnovers and we ultimately lost 7-0. We're usually a .400 - .600 team, so I don't expect great things from our program.

Emanuel County Institute has one of the best running backs in Georgia. A senior this year, running back Washaun Ealey, had 58 touchdowns in 2007. That is quite impressive. He is 19 touchdowns short of the career touchdown record of 111 in Georgia. The next Hershel Walker?

Ironton roughs up Canadian vistors in 54-6 victory
Aug 30, 2008 @ 08:22 AM
By GRANT TRAYLOR
Herald-Dispatch.com

IRONTON — It took Ironton’s football team all of 27 seconds to forget about last week’s disappointing loss to Wheelersburg.

The Fighting Tigers forced a fumble on Our Lady of Mount Carmel’s second play from scrimmage and scored on the next play to start an onslaught that ended in a 54-6 victory Friday night at Tanks Memorial Stadium.

It started a string of domination for Ironton, who scored on its first five possessions to jump to a 35-0 lead midway through the second quarter.

“I didn’t know what I was getting coming in,” Ironton coach Bob Lutz said. “I didn’t know whether I was getting a buzzsaw or what. They had a few skilled athletes, but they were what they were.”

Chance Freeman rushed for three scores on only five first-half carries and finished with 66 yards to lead Ironton, who had five players rush for over 40 yards. Freeman’s 16-yard burst into the end zone on Ironton’s first offensive play started what would be a long night for the Crusaders. As a team, the Fighting Tigers finished with 312 yards rushing.

While Ironton ran its offense like a well-oiled machine, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel struggled to get going. In addition to the fumbled snap, the Crusaders committed nine penalties with several being false starts on the offensive line.

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel running back Raul Thompson was the game’s leading rusher with 116 yards on 20 carries, but the penalties and turnovers kept the Canadian school from sustaining drives.

A botched snap set up Ironton inside the Crusaders’ 5-yard line and Keith Wetzel punched the ball in from there as Ironton led by two scores. Major Brice followed late in the quarter with a 4-yard score to give the Fighting Tigers a 21-0 lead.

With a comfortable lead, Lutz decided to work on the Ironton passing game and after a slow start, things got clicking quickly for Ironton.

After a pair of missed opportunities with receiver Lukas Morris, Ironton quarterback Jon Schweickhart found a connection with Michael Lamb, who was making his first appearance at Tanks Memorial Stadium.

Lamb caught four first half passes for 135 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown and a 42-yard completion on a double pass from Jon Monnig to set up another score on the final play of the first half to give Ironton a 41-6 lead at the break.

“No. 84 (Lamb) isn’t going to drop it,” Lutz said. “He’s going to catch it. It’s a big weapon.”

After the long first half, Lutz decided to put the game into cruise control and the Fighting Tigers responded with 201 yards rushing in the second half to ice the game in less than 45 minutes.

“Our idea was not to do any throwing in the second half,” Lutz said. “We wanted to practice in the first half by spreading it around.”

Ironton (1-1) will face its first SEOAL opponent next week when Gallipolis comes to Tanks Memorial Stadium.

Hi Terri. Ironton has a had a long history of finding opponents and now that coach Bob Lutz is back at the helm after a political b.s. coup tried to get rid of him(he left two years agoand came back to find a team of wannabees), he'll be building the Tigers back to their glory days.
We have played a team from Washington DC that was ranked way up there in the national poll by USA Today and we won decisively over this powerhouse and many other teams like the now defunt C.A.P.E. Crusaders, who put out the likes of Vinnie Clark and Carlos Snow.
ESPN was in Cincinnati to shoot a special on CAPE when we came to town and beat the Crusaders. ESPN showed the scoreboard after the first touchdown by CAPE, but we beat them up pretty bad after that. ESPN packed up and left after the first quarter of the game.

Oh, congrats to St Joe and coach Gil Brooks ..! That Yeager and Labor kid had a great game. I hope they go all the way to the state championship..
We have a St Joe back home, it was Bob Lutz's first coaching job before going to the Ironton High School.
Does St Joe broadcast over the internet? I love listening to the games from back home.

I found a better article from the Allentown paper

Hawks wear down Trojans
Late-arriving St. Joseph's pulls away in fourth quarter.

By Keith Groller | Of The Morning Call
August 30, 2008
A mixup with directions prompted St. Joe's Prep to arrive much later than expected for its season-opening football showdown at Parkland on Friday night.

The team buses finally got there, and eventually, the Hawks' physical dominance surfaced as well.

St. Joe's size seemed to wear down Parkland late, resulting in two fourth-quarter scores and a 20-13, come-from-behind win in Orefield that snapped Parkland's 23-game regular-season winning streak.

Michael Yeager capped a 122-yard rushing performance by flipping into the end zone from 2 yards out for the go-ahead touchdown with 7:18 left

''I don't know that this was a big deal because it was our PIAA debut,'' St. Joe's coach Gil Brooks said. ''I just think it was more exciting for us because it was Parkland.

''We know Parkland. It's a great program. And, they treated us very well and were great hosts after we got here. They started the game 15 minutes late for us. It's a classy program.''

It took much longer for the Hawks' vast talent to show up as the Trojans scored on their first two possessions.

But after the first of two Travis Guth field goals gave Parkland a 10-0 lead, St. Joe's asserted itself up front and ran 22 plays to Parkland's three in the final 10:58 of the first half and tied it up on a TD just before halftime.

The Trojans took advantage of good field position to get a go-ahead score in the third quarter.

However, a potential touchdown drive was reduced to a Guth field goal because of a sack and Parkland struggled offensively the rest of the rainy night.

Three fourth-quarter possessions by the Trojans produced one first down, two fumbles and a net minus-5 yards.

After completing his first five passes, quarterback Sean Keiper was under pressure and 2-for-11 the rest of the night.

''We can't be that inconsistent and make those mistakes on offense,'' Trojans coach Jim Morgans said. ''There were some things that we should have done that we didn't do and I just think they leaned on us a little bit, especially in the second half.''

St. Joe's had a 57-34 advantage in plays from scrimmage and 53 of the Hawks' snaps were running plays behind a rugged offensive line featuring Penn State recruit Mark Arcidiacono, who is 6-5, 282.

Mike Pinciotti ( 6-3, 292 pounds) and Seth Betancourt ( 6-6, 289) also were busy taking control.

Even Eagles coach Andy Reid, who was on hand to watch his son Spencer play for the Hawks, could run the ball behind that line.

''We did what we felt we had to do,'' Brooks said. ''It was not a mystery.''

''We played our hearts out and we're disappointed right now,'' Parkland linebacker Pete Bross said. ''We just have to learn from it, correct our mistakes and get ready for Liberty next week.''



I highlighted the size of some of these boys, they look like freakin' trees! I like the line about Andy Reid.

I send the boss an email and said "I take it no one brought a GPS?" His reply: You are correct

I live in N. Ga. and H.S. football is big here. Especiially in the north Atl suburbs of Cobb/Fulton/Gwinette counties.

But I have a friend from south Ga. and high school football is crazy.

Parents there will hold their male children back a year in the first grade so that they will be more mature in case they play football.

The Prep plays St. Anthony's of Long Island, NY tomorrow night at their home field. It will the opener for SA and it's the first time Saint Joseph's has played them....the battle of the Saints The weather will most likely play a big part of this game. 2-5 inches of rain are expected throughout the day with winds from 25-35 MPH gusting to 40+ could make it anyone's game no matter how good they are. Luckily, the game is being played on turf, not grass.

Last week in the MaxPreps poll, Parkland was the #1 ranked team in PA and The Prep was ranked #16. This week, SJP is ranked 15 and Parkland, 16. I guess MaxPreps has no love for SJP.

Good luck to your favorite teams tonight and this weekend.

Too bad I have to take my daughter to college in Boston tomorrow or I would have gone to this game. If you go Terri, give us a full game report. I graduated St.Anthony's and while they usually have very good teams (7 consecutive CHSFL titles) it looks like they'll have thier hands full with a nationally ranked team.
