    I'll never forget the Centerville vs. Wayne game my senior year in 1999. Both teams were undefeated, ranked top 10 in the state and were both loaded with D1 players.

    Centerville had AJ Hawk who was only a sophomore, AJ's older brother Ryan who was a senior at QB who signed with Miami (OH) but went on to OU, Mike Nugent who was a junior WR and eventual replacement for Ryan Hawk at QB after Hawk graduates, Brent Ullery who went on to become a walk-on at OSU and a handful of other guys who went on to play in the MAC.

    Wayne had Will Allen and John Hollins who were seniors and went on to become Buckeyes, Derek Jones at QB who went to West Virginia, Ashton Watson who was only a sophomore and went on to play at Sparty, Larry Turner who went to Eastern Kentucky but spent some time with the St. Louis Rams (I think even coached a year at Miamisburg), and like Centerville had a handful of other guys who went on to play in the MAC.

    There was a lot of hype for this game and Wayne's stadium was jam packed inside and outside of the gate. It was estimated a total of 15,000 showed up for this game. My friend was dating a Warriorette so she hooked us up with tickets. Wayne had played Miamisburg earlier in the year and though Burg didn't lay down we still got shutout. I saw Centerville play in a scrimmage and didn't think they were all that and didn't think they matched up well with the speedy athletes of Wayne.....

    Centerville dominated 35-14.

    IN HOT WATER

    The Ohio High School Athletic Association has placed the Dublin Coffman football program on probation through June 2018 after an internal investigation conducted last spring found head coach Mark Crabtree met with an eighth-grade student-athlete and his father in an attempt to have the student enroll at the school.

    “There is protocol in place that our coaches are to follow when they are contacted by a student or a family member when the student is not enrolled at the coach's school,” OHSAA Interim Commissioner Dave Gray said in a press release. “Not adhering to those guidelines is a clear violation of the recruiting bylaw [OHSAA Bylaw 4-9], and our staff issued its ruling based on information submitted by Coffman administrators.”

    Crabtree will be suspended for two state playoff games should the Shamrocks qualify and advance. He is also allowed only seven days of contact with the team during the 2017 summer coaching period.

    Dublin Coffman self-reported the violations in June, and the student never enrolled at the school.

    Additionally, the OHSAA announced that Cleveland Glenville violated Bylaw 3-1-2 when it did not respond to requests for information with regard to a transfer whose paperwork was falsified. The student-athlete sat out the first five games of the season, but played in two games when he was not permitted to participate in any this season.

    The OHSAA initially ruled Glenville must forfiet the two contests, but upon appeal decided the student-athlete will be ineligible for the remainder of the school year, fined the school $2,000 and placed the program on probation through June 2018.

    Why doesn’t Ohio have spring football?

    Speaking of the evaluation period, that’s a thorny subject when it comes to Ohio State’s in-state recruiting. At least 16 states have some form of high school spring football, but Ohio is not one of them. That means that during this time, if Ohio State coaches want to watch recruits play real, live football, they’ll probably be doing it somewhere in the South. It definitely won’t be in the state they want to recruit the hardest.

    “I would love to have the opportunity to go see these Ohio kids play right now like I’m going to go see them play in Texas,” said Ohio State cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs, who previously served as a high school coach at Cincinnati Colerain. “I’m going to go see them play in Georgia, and I’m going to go see them play in Florida. It’s a shame we don’t get to do that. I would have loved it when I was coaching high school football. I think the rules are restrictive, and I think it’s unfortunate. I don’t think it does any of those kids a favor.”

    In recent years, Ohio State has taken more of a national approach in recruiting. It has picked up kids from California, Texas, Florida and Georgia. Each of those states has football. The Class of 2017 had the fewest Ohio natives in an Ohio State recruiting class as well as the smallest percentage. Just 7 of the 21 players the Buckeyes signed hailed from Ohio, and one of those actually finished his high school career in Florida.

    “I think it makes it harder to evaluate (Ohio prospects),” Coombs said. “If I’m a high school player who’s played 3 years of spring football at my high school, I’ve got that many more plays and that many more reps. When I do get to college, I’ve got those under my belt. I don’t know what the studies are on that. We’ve had great success with the players that have come from Ohio, and we’re going to keep recruiting the tar out of them. I’d just love to see them play right now.”

    Coombs was in favor of spring practice as a high school coach, too, which makes him pretty well qualified to speak on this subject. So if both high school and college coaches want to see a change, what’s stopping it? Currently, it seems as though administrators are stuck on how to implement spring football without hurting other sports.

    “My honest opinion is that I don’t know that the leadership of those organizations that get to make those decisions are necessarily football-minded folks,” Coombs said. “I think that can be a detriment. I also think they think football already is popular enough in the state of Ohio. All I would say is that if I were a parent of a kid, I’d want to know why would you hold my kid back from being excellent at what he wants to do? Why would you deny him the opportunity to be the best in the country at what he wants to do? The way to do that is to go out there and play.”

    Honestly surprised that this is just now being caught. Ginn is a good guy, but it's like the wild west in terms of enrollment in that area
