Really? Did you not read his first response? I'm sure you meant New Haven since Harding is closed and Dwenger is more than a mile from him.

No I met Dwenger!

Dwenger is in the Archdiocese of SB and in FW city limits. He's in East Allen district and the only opening was NH as he is at Woodlan and Heritage & Leo are filled.

The word from Dwenger he applied! Woodland not good enough anymore that he wanted to move. I wonder if he now has he lost his players and fans TRUST wanting to move? 

And 7 miles does mean driving is a problem.

Question was asked and answered. There is no purpose served in pressing the issue, or bringing up this other nonsense. Move on. It is rare that coaches comment on this forum, and it is nonsense like this that leads to so few doing so.

Might be just my thinking, but it was always going to be an internal hire for BD unless Urban, Harbaugh, Saban, or Dabo were applying.

No, Woodlan isn't going to be upset. He's brought them back by their good fortune of Harding closing. Why beating them last year was awesome as we should have beat them the previous two years.

Why would somebody from Franklin be so knowledgeable and interested in what the football coach at Woodlan is doing?

AC was up to the task 3 years ago in the game coming down to the wire. However, the game 2 years ago could've been a 3-4 TD game difference as easily as it was the 2 TD margin that it ended as being.

You’re making an absolute fool out of yourself.

Appreciate you hijacking my thread’s intent to talk about some interesting schedule changes.

Please take your tin-foil hat to some other message board, one that encourages gossip, rumors, and absolutely false accusations that have literally no merit.

Two years ago it was a 5 pt game with a very bad "facemask" call that could have gave the Jets a 2nd chance to win the game. Official on your sideline called it across the field, while the one that was right there didn't call it, but it's done and over. It became 11 pts after a TD with the game already over and a few seconds left. After the 1st quarter that year it looked like it was going to be 3+ TD margin. South Adams shocked the world anyway.

Interested to know how the Warriors are trying to match the size of Tangeman at WR. Habodasz is a good RB as well. I'm sure there are Muhlenkamp, Bertke, Huelsman, and etc to deal with.

Woodlan has a very solid talented upcoming class of juniors in regards to skill positions. A few have seen some varsity time, but not a lot due to the great outgoing senior skill positions from this past season. If the QB will be who has been their JV QB the last few years, he may become a headache for opposing defenses. Very natural playmaker, and he wins. He has potential to be very good.

 

Defensivly, their strength towards the end of the season was their front 7, all except for 1 are returning. The secondary will have some of those new varsity players so we’ll have to wait to see how they are on Friday nights.

What is the size of the DBs? ML is tall and lengthy. They're usually very physical and quick for their size in the trenches.

I’m unaware of any tall (taller than 6 ft) DBs. To be fair, I do see their defense changing things up depending upon who they play, it’s certainly not a static defense especially in big games, which AC is always one. This one of the coaching staffs strengths from my perspective.

That being said, last years AC game was not a very good performance defensively. Though I’d love to see how the defense that was out on the field against Eastbrook and Southrdige would do against AC. The schemes and personnel those last few weeks of the season were much better than what was out there in week 9.

I missed seeing the face mask you described. I do recall a 1st half TD pass that was called back due to a suspect flag that would’ve opened up a 3 TD lead.

I think it’s silly to go back and point to this play, that play, this missed call, etc.

What I’ll say is that AC and Woodlan have been fairly evenly matched the past 4 seasons. Woodlan has won two games by 1 point which both came down to the wire (2014 and 2015), and both Woodlan and AC have wins of two scores (Woodlan by 12 in 2016 and AC by 9 in 2017) with both of those games being closer than the score indicates. Both winning teams scored a late touchdown that sealed the deal. And you could probably point to both of those games and say if one play happened here the winning team could’ve won by more or they could’ve lost just as easily. That’s what happens when two good teams play each other. I wouldn’t have called that 12 point win in 2016 a comfortable win in considering it took nearly all 48 minutes to get there. And likewise, AC did win by 9 this past season but it did take them needing a half back pass TD with a few minutes left to put the game completely out of reach.

Two great championship caliber programs with very fun games to be apart of!

Old thread, but insterested in what people are thinking after seeing Woodlan in week 1. Don’t know any specifics with Marion Local other than they have won 6 of the last 7 championships in their division in Ohio. Hope to see Woodlan compete with them.

May get an edge with 1st game jitters from ML, but their offense is back. They just reload. WRs have height and size as does most of the ML roster. I believe they're much better than Leo, but we will see.

The difference in big school Ohio football and big school Indiana football isn't all that great.   Ohio is a bigger state so they just have more really good big school programs and talent.

But the difference in small school Ohio football and small school Indiana football is gigantic.

How does Marion Local compare to Indiana 1A/2A schools in regard to enrollment?   I have a hard time believing that there would be a "gigantic" difference between Marion Local and the current Pioneer or even Luers teams from a few years ago.

They're more like Luers but in between both for size. Big farm kids from German Catholic families. 6 ft is considered short and 5' whatever is a midget. Plus 180 to 200+ with athleticism.

Was talking to a guy who lives around Celina he was saying Marion local always has big lineman on both ends of the ball I personally think woodlan will win with speed but we will see 

Nah, speed shouldn't be a factor. Who ever grinds the other down first.

The MAC is an animal, with ML and Coldwater being the most dominat. ML 10 state championships, Coldwater-Versailles-St Henry and Delphos St Johns all with 6,  Minster 3, Ft Recovery 1. In Ohio if your a D V, VI, or VII school, or IV, V, VI prior to the addition of a 7th division you know usually the state championship goes through a MAC team. A small roster in the MAC is 40 some kids, CW and ML local usually tote about 70, and these are all small country schools. I believe it was 07 CW played Kokomo, score was 42 to 6 if I remember correctly, CW. Very rarely is there a year at least one MAC team doesn’t win state, several times 2, and they’ve won 3 divisions in the same year. And they are fun to watch. You tube Coldwater/Youngstown Cardinal Mooney game. Mooney was nationally rated at #5. The score tonight was not surprising. And if you want to make some $$, go to a St Henry/CW, or CW/ML game, not uncommon to see a 5,6,7k 50/50 pot.
