Finished so soon...
Kenston, Painesville Riverside and now Chardon all had high expectations going into the 2008 season, but 3 weeks into the fray their seasons have been declared dead! Kenston hasn't been able to do anything right offensively nor defensively giving up 7 turnovers in week one and very "middle school-like" performances the last two trips to the gridiron. Riverside is simply over-matched by ANY opponent they face and Chardon, well the Hilltoppers have tried to legalize cloning to return Kyle Petersen's clone to the field!
BUT, WE A D1 FOOTBALL DO BELIEVE IN RESURRECTION. After all, VASJ pulled one out against a very less-than-mediocre University team then fought valiantly only to lose to a NOW 1-2 Maple Heights squad, BUT we have faith that Mother Mary can spell life into the Vikings as we believe!
These teams have been cast to the underbelly of high school football not only by poor play and poor coaching, but by the football gods themselves. Zeus was the Lombardi of Mount Olympus and Mercury (Morris) his fastest disciple. Vulcan breathed fire into his teammates and they won. Hercules carried more times than anyone could imagine and he made Jim Brown look like a 4th grader. BUT Hercules fell to injury and "Sweetness" was called to the Mountain to take his place. Now the gods have seen these teams mock their great sport and they have seen ENOUGH.
FOR THESE TEAMS THE ROAD TO RESURRECTION MAY BE TOO LONG, BUT FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T YET FALLEN AND BEEN CAST INTO THE PIT OF LOST SEASONS, REDEMPTION MAY BE JUST A QUALITY WIN AWAY!
