Greetings 11w community. I am a longtime visitor to this site and only recently got my membership. This is my first blog post so bear with me. I was curious as to why the huge amount of D1 talent that Glenville produces hasn't translated to much playoff success? IMO its a lack of any kind of kicking game. They're coached well enough and with their success along with Cleveland public schools open enrollment policy, you figure they'd be able to find a kicker/punter somewhere in the city. I was a teenager when Glenvilles football program blew up. It was a very exciting time because there was finally a city public school that could compete with St. Eds/Ignatius ( who BTW recruit from about 7 different counties in talent rich northeastern Ohio). You would constanly hear how if Glenville was inside the opponents 50 they would go for it on 4th everytime, no matter the distance (they rarely face 4th down against Senate league competition). They also go for 2 after every touchdown. I'm just curious and wanted to get some others thoughts. With the teams they've had, it seems like they should have a state title or at least a couple final four appearances in the last 20 years. I'm just bored I guess, and wanted to break up the mid week monotony. Go Bucks!!!
