I'm so tired of catholic school employees hiding behind the disguise of "it's a parents choice where to send their child to school "....that's such a cover up because no one is going to argue that! Open enrollment and recruiting kids to go private don't even come close! Leave public school kids alone! Especially the athletes! Please don't insult us with " we don't recruit" .....everyone has a story to tell! You know darn well you scope out the kids that are athletically talented and tell the parents " it's your choice to have your child play for us..." And some parents are so obsessed with Thinking their child is the best athlete and they create these dream teams that play in divisions that are not balanced according to that devise! OHSAA does need to fix thing....it's out of control.

Wow.... Something is wrong with you Burt... Get help! You are consumed by negativity ..... But I guess it gets you the attention you need and keeps you employed.... I feel badly for you but I guess it works for you....for now anyway! You miss the bigger picture all the time because you are so angry! Good luck with that!

Poland never RECRUITED Perry, he lived with his aunt and uncle and they had custody.....LOL you say that Perry won the title FOR poland then go on to say he wasnt that great, his line was! DuhIt seems that the catholic supporters are finding the few incidents that are questionable about public schools playing with players from surronding areas.....as if that is anywhere near what the catholic schools are doing! please give me a break! Try that elsewhere!!! Not even close. It goes on everywhere but no where near what the parochials do!

Hats off to coach Griz for having the guts to say what every PUBLIC SCHOOL advocate thinks!

rockyraod...your assuming that the parochial schools are the best to compete against....not so! There are plenty of public schools out there that offer top notch programs to compete against. Also, were Mooneys championships tarnished by anything.....like the R word? just sayin...

C'mon....read between the lines....everyone in the valley can pretty much figure out why this is happening. The R word is always at the center of Mooney's problems. They will deny it and say most of their students come from their feeder catholic elementary's but not all...everyone knows someone that is approached by a mooney person interested in certain player from a public school. Anyone that denies this has bliners on! This stuff is getting old! I'm glad that poland took the stand a few years ago and now Canfiled! GOOD FOR THEM!!! Mooney peopleSTAY AWAY FROM OUR PUBLIC SCHOOL KIDS!!! Leave them alone! Stick with what you got and parents that fall for this crap and want to send their kids to mooney to help create a 'dream team'..wake up! Its high school!!! Play by the rules!!!! To say that open enrollment levels the playing field indirectly implies that Mooney has in fact not been playing by the rules, and now you think open enrollement levels it? No way....first off not all schools have it, second its mostly used by Ytown students for academics and third those that do offer it can only accept students from adjacent districts....Mooney does NONE of that! To say that Canfield is hiding from Mooney is a joke! Dont think Canfield will have trouble scheduling any school in any sport...can Mooney say the same? Good for you Canfield! I hope other schools follow your lead...if OHSAA can fix this problem...leave it to the public schools....we'll fix it OUR WAY!!!

the old school concept of playing ball with the neighbor kids you grew up with is lost....community pride has gone by the way becuase mommy and daddy dont instill these values,,,instead we want to cheat and create 'dream teams' under the disguise of "we want a catholic education"....OHSAA couldn't fix the problem that has gotten way out of hand so maybe this is a new beginning....I thought Poland did the samething with Mooney after a Mooney kid beat up a Poland kid in the parking lot at Boardman High School after an ACT test...let the catholic schools all play each other!!!!

Great idea! Now all other area schools should join in this decision so that the kids that leave their hometown schools ( for whatever reasons :P) will stay where they belong!!!
