Wow, you get a little too fired up about high school football. Weren't you able to make the team in high school? If you had a kid that was passionate about football, wouldn't you send him to a school that had a program that would teach him something and get him noticed? If I had a kid that was into music, I would send him to a school that had a good reputation for that. You sound like you really have an axe to grind. GEEZ!! As for Clarett, didn't he live in Youngstown, play at Fitch until he was recruited away from Fitch by Harding? Both public schools,by the way. You mentioned morality in your post. I was at the Poland - Mooney basketball game a couple of years ago when some of the kids from Poland painted their faces white and wore all white and cheered / jeered at the Mooney students "that at least they were all white". This example and the hundred or so that we can post back and forth at each other just demonstrate that it is usually the few embarrasing the many. You and I both know that the overwhelming majority of families in Poland want the same things that the Mooney, Canfield, Boardman, Crestview, East and any other you can mention. They want their kids to have fun, make friends, stay safe, and learn something. And trust me they all want to win. The other thing I know for sure is that there are skeletons in every closet and it is time to move on.
