Gibsonburg 2010 preview

Coach: Steve Reser, first year

Last year: 3-7 (1-5, SLL)

Forecast: Reser, who replaces Matt Harp, has inserted new offensive and defensive schemes this season for the Golden Bears.

Reser previously served as offensive coordinator for five years at Seneca East, one year at Tiffin Columbian and three years as the wide receivers coach at Heidelberg College.

“We will be in several shotgun, one-back formations on offense,” Reser said, “and on the defensive end we will be running a four-man front with multiple backfield looks. We want to be 50-50 run/pass (ratio), which is different from the 90-10 they did before. We’re more of a spread attack.”

Genoa 2010 preview

Coach: Mike Vicars, fourth year, 34-4.

Last year: 11-1 (6-0, SLL).

Forecast: Vicars and his coaching staff must have had to pinch themselves when they watched the Comets perform in 2009.

Genoa was as dominant as dominant can get last season, outscoring opponents by a whopping 531-24 margin en route to a second straight 10-0 regular season. For the third year in a row the Comets, who were ranked fourth in the final Associated Press poll, won an SLL title and reached the Division IV playoffs, where they opened at home with a 62-7 thumping of Edison.

And then, another fairy-tale season – Genoa reached the state semifinals in 2008 - came screetching to a halt in a 36-35 loss to an 8-3 Orrville team at Ashland Community Stadium.

Eastwood 2010 preview

Coach: Jerry Rutherford, 29th year, 174-117.

Last year: 9-3 (5-1, SLL).

Forecast: Moving over to coach the Eagles’ defense has been rejuvenating for Rutherford, who has guided Eastwood to the state playoffs in six of the last eight years.

“I just wanted to try it,” said Rutherford, who has always coached the offense. “This is the first time in 29 years that I’ve coached the defense, and I’m really enjoying it.”

Joe Wyant, who has coached at Eastwood for several years as well as at Lakota and Oak Harbor, is coaching the Eagles’ wing-T offense, which averaged 33.6 points in 2009. The Eagles’ defense, which gave up 231 points a year ago, has switched to a 3-3 “stack” alignment, which uses three down linemen, three linebackers and five defensive backs.
