Right off I only see one power house school in SEO and that looks to be Wheelersburg. Are scouts coming to Burg? Probably are. Right now, where are the boys to be found? So far we have six on the list. Most of the time you have a good year the year before and a lot of those boys coming back to have big time coaches to come into SEO. Too many times a boy can be looked at as a sophomore or JR. and come their senior year the team can be down and his performance will not be as good through the first half of the season and big time scouts seem to go elsewhere.
No, they are not going to Burg, why? Because Burg has a ton of nice High School players, however they have no one who is knocking the doors off of College Scouts, More DI scouts are calling on Sciotoville East than Burg at the moment.
True, Tyler Gerald got noticed and that opened the door for Blaine Scott etc... But those guys have something you can't teach and that is SIZE! Those guys are really good lineman but if they were smaller they would get overlooked no matter how good they were. We've all seen some excellent linemen play high school ball but most of them are undersized for the next level. Hopefully with the attention these guys are getting it will open the doors for athletes all over this area who would of been previously overlooked. I hope I didn't misspell anyone's name lol. Definitely looking forward to following these guys college careers. There are more kids than we realize that receive D1 offers... But it's hard for folks from this area to afford the expense that goes along with that. Full-rides are not all expense paid. So most of these offers are declined for various reasons but mostly for financial.

If you'd read my other post, I've stated that size and speed are what you have better have, the being a really good HS player at a really good program does not earn any DI offers. Being 6'5" and 280lb and able to run a 5.0 40 is what will get you offers.

Full rides are all expenses paid to the Power 5 schools. They have a thing call "Full Cost of Attendance" that covers all expenses plus some extra spending money.

Wow, BlackJack, what is he trying to say here???? I about swallowed my tobacco!!!

For clarification, FBS football (P5 or G5, does not matter) is a "head count" sport, meaning that every player recieves a full grant in aid and up to the institution any cost of attendance figures that the University figures. FCS football is an "equivalency" sport which means their scholarships can be divided a certain way up to the value of 63 full scholarships.

The comment that people turn these scholarships down because they can not afford them is absolutely ridiculous!!!

Exactly. These college coaches are looking at kids pedigree, not high school production. They put emphasis on summer camps. OSU is supposedly close to offering a junior that showed up at camp and did well. He hadn't played football since the 7th grade till this year.

I've seen several of the kids listed that went major D1 get destroyed by kids that couldn't get interest from Morehead. But the D1 had the size and speed.

It's recruit football camp season! Care to revive this conversation? Which local athletes are attending camps?

Which 2017 grads are putting pads on for colleges this summer/fall?

Great for Yates, he's a real competitor. However, Morehead is a non-scholarship school in the sport of football. The compete in the Pioneer Football League. Quality football, but it's non-scholarship.

The Eagles are D1 FCS 1-AA members of the Pioneer Football League whose members do not offer football scholarships. The Dayton Flyers are also members of the football only conference. I guess you go to Morehead to play football for love of the game while getting your education . Think D3 on steroids.

MSU likely has other means of financial aid like work study etc.. Honestly I find the Pioneer's approach to college football to be refreshing, untainted by big money like ESPN.

As to your specific question of when did they go no scholly, I would guess at least 2001 when they joined the PFL, but it may be as far back as the mid 90's when they left the OVC. Eagle football has been on financial life support for decades.

FCS offers scholorships. They don't always offer a full ride but they do offer a lot of partials.

Moorehead state is still in the OVC.
They are constantly reconised as one of the better University's in the south as well.
