I guess all I'm trying to say is Big Foot is pretty darn good. I really don't know how they would do playing bigger schools but they r special. I coached against them this year and we were pretty good defensively and I saw no way to slow them down offensively. You can move it some on them but you better score when you have the chance because their scoring 35 plus. Freedom has a stud rb so they will move it some but buckle up on defense because their coming down hill on u and also have a playmaking qb. Hehr has like 18 incompletions on the year and can break one with his legs


I'm interested to know what school you coach for ? It will be interesting to see what Freedom does to try and slow Big Foot down offensively, Lakeside tried 9-10 guys in the box and Big Foot still ran on them. They also threw the ball well, Hehr to Ripkey has become a lethal combination.
One thing I noticed in the last 4 games is a marked increase in the physicality of their play. Lakeside hit them in the mouth and actually led10-6 ... for one play. BF ran the kick off back 95 yds for the td and never looked back from there and went in to the half leading 40-10. I believe they are actually peaking right now which doesn't bode well for the rest of D4.

I've followed high school sports in this state for close to thirty years I think Big foot would do quite well at the div 2 level I'm not saying they win d2 or the d1 state title but offensively they would score 28 on 99 percent of the state. Their o line averages 280 and their not fat sloppy kids. Dixon is a absolute beast and hehr is a difference maker at qb. Their average halftime score on the season is 38 to three. They scrimmage top end d1and d2 teams and do quite well.the difference mostly lies in 4years of practicing good on good which is easier when you have a 1500 student enrollment. Make no mistake about it their very good anyone can be beat on any given night but they have a special thing going there.



Which top end D1 and D2 teams did they scrimmage this year?

They scrimmage Kenosha Bradford, Madison West, and Wilmot every year. They have been doing this the past 5-6 years, so they know what the best of the best looks like in Bradford the last few years. Bradford wasn't as good this year but still a level 3 team in D1.

That is awesome exposure for BF. Didn't realize they had Bradford on the schedule. Whatever BF is doing in their football program should be a template for other schools. They've been strong for a long time and I love the fact they're looking to gauge themselves against the best.

Yes I was surprised by the Jeff/ET score too, but heard Zaske-Dodge-KAz didn't play the 2nd time around due to injuries

Try being a div 5 team in this conference having to beat some of these schools to qualify for div 5 playoffs. Orfordville basically lost to three of the teams by 7 pts. BJ and ET scored late to make both games 14. Pt losses. I could have seen parkview winning two ages in div 5



Had Parkview made the playoffs in Division 5, they may have gone southeast and won a game or two. However, had they gone southwest, it would have been a very early exit. That group of 8 was brutal!

I'm confused, I'm not trying to start a fight or get in the middle of anything so I'm not sure what your talking about. I have no issues with you at least I don't remember any.

Parkview was a projected south east team doesn't really matter much but it would have been nice to have a shot to compete against similar enrollments .

Yea coach, you can rise above enrollment issues in basketball, but football is very tough to do as you know. Isnt there a school close by where they could co op with maybe? Ive only made the trip out to Parkview twice, its a hike of a conference game so im not real familiar with the area. Seems like a nice little town though,the few places i ate or had a drink at. It would be horrible if Parkview didnt have sports. Ive heard they are/used to be a small school power house in baseball? Enrollment didnt stop them from thrashing bigger RVC teams,or are the numbers now depleting in serious numbers?

I don't know if it would have been real early, they lost to 2 pretty good D4 teams in Big Foot and Brodhead. They moved the ball in the first half against Big Foot but like everyone else they had no answer to Big Foot's offense. No shame there. They played Brodhead pretty even and if they could snap the ball better they had a chance to win that game. Not sure of their schedule but they may even had to play a D3 school seeing how we have more then a few in our North Conference.


No offense to Parkview... if they would have been in the Southwest bracket, they would have been a low seed. There is no way they hang with Lancaster, Durand, or even Aquinas.

if 2 or more schools co-op for a sport do they combine the enrollments ? I imagine they would but wouldn't that put that school at a disadvantage ? You take 2 d5 schools and co op them couldn't you possibly and up w a d3 enrollment ? If you are co oping cause you have a lack of athletes that would really put your program in a bad position. I'm not sure how all that works.
