WOW- That was by far the most impressive running back highlite reel that I've ever seen. Alot of backs have straight line speed. His ability to slow down, speed up, juke, cut on a dime are what seperates him from everybody else. Can't wait to see him in the scarlet and gray! Urban might have to come up with a scheme that has 3 H-backs on the field at one time with all this talent.

Fred Bruney played at Martins Ferry as well. Among the all-time interception leaders at OSU as well as a career in the NFL as both a player & coach

Nate Davis was also quite the hoopster. I believe he is/was in the top 10 in basketball in the state in both points & rebounds. Some say his best sport was baseball, Quite the athlete.

His father was the had hoops coach at Muskingham college in New Concord, the same school that John Gruden first went to and a couple of the Heacock brothers as well.

I went to college with Coach Mick at West Liberty State College in Wheeling W.Va. After working out with him, there's little doubt that he wouldn't have our players doing anything he hasn't done himself.To say he was a workout warrior himself would be a huge understatement. I hope Urban & him are connected at the hip here for years to come. It's always great to see how "Micks Monsters" develope not just their bodies but their passion as well under his tutelege. Job well done Coach Mick!

Count me as not too concerned about that corner spot. I think whoever is the best of the Conley, Webb, Lattimore trifecta will be plenty good. Too much talent there for anything else, plus the competition there will enhance all 3's game. They got this covered.

It's a shame this won't get a fraction of the air time that the 4 suspensions got. I guess that's the world we live in, always focusing on the negatives, and not nearly focusing as much on stellar student/athletes like Mr. Perry. Way to represent the Bucks young man. Well done.

I think this move of moving X-Brax to H-back makes the deciision in spring to get Jalin Marshall reps at the outside receiver spots a wise move. Let's see, we have Dontre Wilson, Curtis Samuel, Paris Ford & now Braxton at the H. I think they have it covered. Put Jalin out wide and I think we might just score alot of points this year. Defense, pick your poison. Go Bucks!

Icouldnotgofor3- We played both the Bulldogs & the Jets. Always hard nosed, well played games with respect from both teams. typical of the ball played in the OVAC & thru out the Buckeye state. Whichever valley teams make the playoffs each year, the rest of the valley is always behind them. Bellaire & Shadyside have each nice runs, both playing in 2 State Champion Finals. Although bitter rivals when they play each other, both communities back each other 100% once the playoffs start, & I'm sure that is true all over the state because of our love of football. There is a reason the Pro Football Hall of Fame is in Canton, it's our states love & devotion to all things football. Go Bucks

I grew up in eastern Ohio. Went to Shadyside High & played in the OVAC. I graduated from OSU & now live in Melbourne Fl. I can tell you first hand that the passion for high school football isn't even remotely close. You can go to a local high school game here & there might be 150 people in the stands. Half are usually band parents. Sure, there are a few great athletes on most teams, but nowhere near the toughness or community pride that is found on a football Friday in the great Buckeye state. Most the people that make up these communities weren't born & raised here. Half of them didn't even send their kids to school here because they came down after they retired from up north. I've never seen the passion at a game here like you would at a Steubenville game, the Bellaire vs. Martins Ferry game, or a Shadyside vs. St. Johns game. The entire communities show up on a Friday night to root on their local teams. This develops huge passion for the game & their communities that they represent. It's a pride thing, & every gifted athlete that plays for OSU has had that ingrained in them since birth. That's what makes high school football in Ohio so great & the athletes that make it to OSU so special, & a major reason we are THE UNDISPUTED NATIONAL CHAMPS!! Now, back to The Grind so we can repeat. OH..
