I don’t think there is a team in the ovc that will stop fairlands pass game. Can the stop the power run teams in the ovc though?
The dragons QB looks like a D1 talent. Does anyone know how big he is?

I wouldn’t say any taller than 6’1”
He’s added some muscle and arm strength this season though. Last year he consistently under threw a lot of balls. In their two games this year I haven’t seen him
Under throw any. He’s been a bit long on a few though.

I'll take the Dragons. Ironton is much improved, but Fairland looks even more so. OVC is muuuuuuuch improved as a whole, this year. Exciting league to watch.

it sounds like it mister, I was thinking the same thing the other day. this should be a dandy. ironton's secondary held up well with burg's pass game. at least better than I thought it would. so that could be interesting.

Fairland is soft in the trenches. Ironton handily.

could somebody please take a couple of bags of miracle grow to fairlands stadium?? absolutely the worse field and stadium i ever watched a high school game in......
You must have lost. So sorry. Just don't come back, problem solved. See how easy that was.

sorry but nobody lost to fairland very often until last year. i could not believe my eyes when i saw that place! what grass? and what they call bleachers reminded me of when we used to have to sit on the bare concrete down in belfry. but at least they had grass. ditto on worse high school football field i ever saw. should be some kind of standards with oshaa on stadiums and safe fields to play on. the parking lot would have been softer

I didn’t know perfect conditions were required to play football. You sir must be exactly what has happened to Irontons very historic football program. It’s gone soft 😂😂😂

I believe Fairland and GAHS are the last two OVC fields without turf. Fairland needs an upgrade bad, not just to the playing surface

It’s not about being “soft” it’s about player safety

I WAS WATCHING THE WSAZ AND SAW IT. IT DIDN'T LOOK LIKE IT EVEN HAD GRASS.

Everyone has played on fields that need work. Ironton just needs to get off the bus and go play football.

Wow is there nothing Ironton people won't cry about. And as far as safety that a b.s. argument. Grass is by far safer than turf. Like a poster before me said just get off the bus, lace your cleats, and put on your helmets and play football.

I can spot the people that
1.) have not been to Fairland in quite some time
And 2.) have never looked at a study in their lives and just assume what they think they know

Fairlands field is full of unlevelness, holes, ditches, and bare spots which pose a risk.

According to multiple studies I’ve researched, grass and turf have the same injury rate IF the grass is maintained, level, smooth, and has no obstacles on the surface. You can look those up as you please, you may learn something

I agree they need an upgrade. They’ve needed one since before my last year there in 07. No one will get on board with getting a new one though. They at least upgraded the playing field some and added the metal away bleachers. I remember a few years back the away bleachers were the wood ones with broken boards everywhere.

I guess I would Fall in your No.1 example. I have played on there field before,but it has been a few years ago. I can see the unlevelness and the bare spots. I would hope that mayby that you are kidding a little bit about the holes and ditches though. If you are serious though,I haven't been there in quite some time,so I really wouldn't know.

Ironton will need to depend on it's running game and defense in this one.
They keep the turnovers down and penalties and work that clock they will have a chance.
If they get in a track meet with Fairland they could be in trouble.
I gave Fairland a chance last week against Athens.
This week I will give Ironton that same chance if they can keep the scoring low and don't commit penalties at the key times.

If you want to talk about poor fields,what about the poor field at Gallipolis? Depending on the time of the year it is sometimes worse than others. I don't ever remember when playing there that we ever even thought that much about it.A little bit of dust,dirt,and mud never hurt anyone.

Ironton running game comes alive for 300+ yards and wins 28-21.

I wasn't complaining at all, I just said I saw it on wsaz. frankly I could care less. they are all playing on the same surface as far as I'm concerned. instead of thinking ironton is whining. think about everybody whining about everything that an ironton poster posts about. I agree play ball. the surface won't favor anybody. I never said a thing about safety. just that I saw it on the news.

No disrespect but Fairland's field is very bad and it isn't safe. The field is used for just about everything, including Junior High Soccer. They need a turf field or a re-sod.
