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..

There are oh so many options here. But I have to be true to the OVAC, much like Kevinj & Knarcisi representing the fine town of Shadyside. I'll take Tim Spencer & my all time fave Joey Galloway

As we go from "The Chase" the last three years, to "The Chased" this year, I have complete faith in UFM, & the culture that he has built here since his arrival. I'll bet we see an angry, hungry & focused team this year, whatever buttons he needs to push will be pushed  by the master & then some. Go Bucks

The "Bellaire Bullet", Joey Galloway. Probably the fastest Buckeye ever. I grew up in Shadyside & had the honor of watching him in both football & track. Was also a heck of a hoopster. He bought both his former high school football & basketball coaches brand new cars. Got to catch up with him a few years ago in Melbourne Fl. when he was playing for the Tampa Bucs. Class act all the way around, & now making his mark on TV working for espn. Way to represent the OVAC!

Middletown also gave us the late, great Todd Bell. He  came for the Bellaire Relays & spent the the night at our house with 8 other teammates. While they all went to the Relays Dance on Friday night, he stayed in & read the Bible & went to bed by 9. The next day, he went out and long jumped 25 some feet. He then went on to play for Da Bears in the NFL, and won a Superbowl. Fantastic athlete, & an even better person. Middletown has had their share of greats over the years.
