"Coach"

By Ram - “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me”. Well, that’s not totally true, words do invoke a response from us, maybe not an outward response, but we, as people, are emotionally affected by the words that are said to us. Of course, the above commonly used quote was meant as a way of teaching us a lesson about not responding the wrong way to being called names, but lets look at a not so derogatory name we may be called - Coach. Lets start with a little background before we get into what the word means: think back to what coaches that you know did for you. I... Read More →

Recent history matters more in this battle between old rivals Danville, Somerset

By thegeneral - There are rivalries that go way back, and then there are rivalries like Danville-Somerset. The Admirals and Briar Jumpers don’t play every year, but they have played often enough and long enough to develop a history that few regular rivalries can equal. But kids don’t care about a hundred years of history, so we’ll talk about that later. In the here and now, both teams badly need a win in their showdown Friday at Somerset’s Clark Field. There is zero margin for error in a four-team district, and the winner of this game will be one of only two teams left with a realistic shot at winning... Read More →

Thoughts on Scheduling

By CoachBuckett - Thoughts on Scheduling Every year no matter what sport or what level of competition those that judge teams judge them by their schedule. As in each game thread or each thread that discusses rankings the constant theme when we are trying to determine who the better team is, is their schedule isn’t tough enough or they should win because they have played a tougher schedule. I know there are different philosophies coaches use when it comes to scheduling. I am not sure I am always convinced that a tougher schedule always equals better team. Many coaches have the philosophy that scheduling... Read More →


Non-Friday Games

By DragonFire - Non-Friday Games This coming Friday is always my least favorite week of the football season. Beginning in 2011, almost every school in the area began to take the exact same bye week – NFHS Week 07 – which corresponds to the fall break of most of the schools. It’s not that I don’t understand the appeal of not having the game, it’s just frustrating that every single school takes off during that time meaning you have very little options as to what to watch. South Warren pretty much stands alone in throwing a bone to the area, scheduling a game during that week in each of their three years... Read More →

Beechwood Tiger Insider - Week Seven

By EyeOfTheTiger - Beechwood Tiger Insider - Week Seven Week Six Recap The Tigers hosted one of their biggest rivals last week when the Covington Catholic Colonels came to Ft. Mitchell. There was a big crowd on hand for a Thursday night televised game. It was a promising start for the Tigers as they took the opening kickoff and moved downfield rather easily. They stalled at the Cov Cath 25 but then the Colonels fumbled on their first play. The Tigers then moved to first and goal but a fumble of a center snap turned the ball back over to the Colonels at the one yard line. Despite controlling most of the 1st... Read More →

Getting a College Football Scholarship - Part 4

By Ram - This is part four of a four part series on college recruiting and scholarship acquisition. This is a topic that is widely misunderstood and complicated. Every year, I know of several players who could have received money for college though football but could not because they were not educated in the recruiting process. What is the difference between an “Official” and an “Unofficial” visit? A common question parents of college recruits have. The simple difference is: who is paying? Unofficial Visits are much more common, and will encompass the majority of a players college visits. ... Read More →
