Coach: Dan Reardon


A team that was already facing a lot of holes on defense absorbed a huge blow this summer when All-America DL/LB Jamel Turner, an Ohio State recruit, was declared ineligible before his senior season started. The Irish, fresh off the Division V state title, have just three returning starters from a defense that was the strength of the team that past two years. The good news is, six offensive starters return, including senior workhorse RB Allen Jones (1,200 yards rushing, 17 TDs) and breakout junior Akise Teague, who came on strong in the postseason last year. The Irish also return both quarterbacks in senior Dawalyn Harper (the running threat) and junior Paul Kempe (throwing). Ursuline has 79 players in 9-12 on its roster so depth and talent shouldn't be a problem. The main challenge for Reardon & Co. is developing the younger players and surviving an unforgiving schedule. After two straight state final appearances, everyone will have Ursuline circled on its calendar this fall.

10-31-2008- Dear Sir: I have been following my grandson's kicking statistics for the 2008 Season. Kevin Patrick ,#41 a 5"10" 165lb. Sr. K/K, has never played football organized. He always was a Soccer player and was on the Irish Soccer team all 4-years and was Captain this year. He was encouraged to try out for the Extra point and Field Goal position this Season,for they didn't have a consistent player to fulfill this spot. He has done a few kickoffs, but Mike Herns,No#53 a 6'4" 264lb. OL/DL SR player, does a wonderful effort on this assignment as well as his other duties. He is BIG,Aggressive and highly aware of his important duties both Offensively and defensely.
My reason for this e-mail is to indicate a discrepancy ,as any Grandparent would do,in Kevin's Point Total for the season. I might add,I am suspect of error, as my wife has pointed out to me, when I followed my other Grandson ,David Patrick during his 4 year Varsity playing Baseball for the Irish, who did go to the State Championship in 2003 and 2006. In David's Senior year he was their Starting Left hander and won over the number #1 pitcher for Canton Central Catholic in the semi-final game.
Back to Kevin's efforts. You have it at 37 Points. I have noted at all ten games an accumulation of 40 for 48 attempts, a percentage of 83% and in Field Goals 3 for 5 for a 60% average. Total point of 49 points. In the game against Canton Central Catholic, the Vindy recorded his extra point attempts as 2/2 completed and gave credit to Jimmy Mszanski, #18 a Senior 5"8".187Lb., QB/LB/Holder, who by the way, has done a terrific job in all of his assignments, for 4/4 Expts. Also Kevin didn't play in the Akron Buchtel game and Jeff Podolsky, #33 a Sophomore 5"9" 161Lb. RB/DB,did the extra point conversions and was 6 for 6. Jeff is an outstanding player and has done a wonderful job on all of his assignments.HE IS ONLY A SOPHOMORE. You can count on him do make something happen in pressure moments.
If my accounts are in error .I humbly apologize. If your sources reporting are in error, could this be correctd. Kevin is a Senior and by all means , he does deserve his recognition for his efforts. He is totally committed as he was in Soccer, to the Irish Football team. His Mom, Linda Patrick, my daughter, has told me, that I would not believe how he is excited for this year and grateful that Coaches Reardon in Football and Harry Leigh in Soccer, and thair cooperative efforts, have helped Kevin in his spirit of play.
Respectively submitted, Grandpa Dumas.

maybe you should drop down to div. 6. then you would guarantee a state title. well, you would have to go through macdonald, columbiana, and western reserve. that could be tough. and who knows - maybe jackson-milton or southern local may have a good team one year. you guys are pathetic !!

rangerhomey: It is not the players or schools fault the state puts them in Div 5. They would gladly play in D1 if they were allowed. The fact is their student enrollment is too low and the OHSAA has stupid guidelines for football. Ursuline plays D2 or D3 in every other sport and does well in those might I add. They won a basketball and baseball state title in recent years at those higher divisons.
