Coach is just that a STUD... at run blocking. His teams have never been super at pass blocking. He is a downhill guy and gets his players physical, even going back to LSU. He is what he is and I’m glad he’s here. 
the online has been monsters and paved the way for the most physical team in the country. +1

Chain I have to say Donatos. I love the cracker crust and the pepperoni is killer. 

The OP mentioned Beer Barrel in Lima OH (now one in St Mary’s I believe) but it is extremely good. The cheese is soo gooey and good. 

Van Wert, OH - Wild Willy’s is very good pie but an even better Stromboli. 

Bradenton FL has a few good ones but Danny’s Pizzeria is my go to down here. Great NY style Pie and good lunch specials on slices and pints. Love it. 

Pizza is nostalgic because it does impart some good family memories for me. It seemed to be the only thing that my fathers side could agree upon so that was our go to for family functions lol.

Basketball- I’m going with Greg Simpson. What he could do with his size was Iverson-esque. Simply amazing. I Saw Jim Jackson play against Lima Sr when he got point 2000. He was a freak.

Football - Being from the Western Buckeye League I had the pleasure of watching both Mauk kids spin it. They were a well oiled machine. Kenton’s offense was fun to watch... even as they were killing us.

Van Wert native and remember that team well. Also graduated in 91 so played some YM ball with Doug E. Seen a couple broken noses from no look passed. If Doug had his brothers size he would have been incredible. I’ve heard many stories how the coaching staff wasn’t kind to Doug’s career as he was instructed to feed Funderburke. 

On a side not Brandon Pardon was amazing. He, and fellow VW native Shad Foster, owned (at least about 5 years ago) most of the state assist records. NW Ohio represented.

For the Southeastern folks I would contend that Publix Fried Chicken is as good, or better than, any fast food and it isn’t close.

Damn I got goosebumps reading that. What a remarkable young man, one of the good guys and will be easy to root for him. 

Best of luck to you Jalen.

Sad news indeed.. what a remarkable spirit. My HS trainer always use to tell me as we left training table to “leave it better than you found it”. Tyler did that with strength and joy. Far to soon. 

Thoughts and Prayers to the Trent Family!!
