    I agree with you. The Beechwood offense is the key to the game for Beechwood. Beechwood needs to have some good drives. If they have 3 and outs, there is not much chance of Beechwood keeping it close.

    I also agree about covering Covington Catholic's bigger wide receivers. Last year Covington Catholic's receivers were just too big for Beechwood. The Tiger defensive backs would be in very good coverage and Mayer would just throw the ball high for his big receivers.

    Finally, can Beechwood hold their own at the line of scrimmage? The Tigers have size and experience up front with two D1 players. Beechwood needs them to make plays.

They are just missing that big opponent on there like a GCL, Colrain, T, X, Male, SC type of team. I don't know what the Indiana school is like, maybe it is at that level? But they are doing what they are doing well and it is working, it doesn't really matter.
    I think they went away from scheduling GCL teams because it would get ugly.

    It will be changing here soon. They didn’t have Eddie then, nor the talent he had the last few years when these schedules were made.
