OHSFCA opposes Friday Big 10 games


The Ohio High School Football Coaches Association (OHSFCA) and several other coaches’ associations have joined forces to show their combined disappointment in the Big Ten Conference’s recent decision to play conference games on Friday nights beginning in 2017.

“We would like to express our disappointment with the Big Ten Conference’s decision to play football games on Friday nights,” Matt Dennison, president of the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association and head coach at New Philadelphia High School said. “Our association is vehemently opposed to this action as it infringes on a great American tradition of high school football, is not in the best interest of student athletes, cripples the small budgets of high school athletic departments, disrupts the relationships between high school coaches and Big Ten coaches, and hinders the recruiting process.”

The OHSFCA has joined with high school football coaches’ associations in Michigan, Minnesota. Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin in opposing the decision.

san jose, costa rica

The United States put itself in a deep hole in World Cup qualifying with one of its worst performances in decades.

Taking advantage of defensive mistakes, Costa Rica routed the U.S. 4-0 Tuesday night to drop the Americans to 0-2 for the first time in the final round of the North and Central American and Caribbean region.

Johan Venegas scored in the 43rd minute, Cristian Bolanos doubled the lead in the 69th and second-half substitute Joel Campbell beat beleagured goalkeeper Brad Guzan in the 74th and 77th minutes in the worst margin of defeat for the U.S. in a qualifier since a 5-1 defeat at Mexico in November 1980.

Combined with Friday’s 2-1 loss to Mexico at Columbus, Ohio, the U.S. finds itself in a quick deficit in the hexagonal, which resumes in March.
