No idea if a meeting occurred or not (probably didn't), but a lot of success for a lot of years sometimes leads to everyone needing to reset a bit, so if it happened no biggie. Humble and hungry got us where we are across boys and girls sports all grade levels - nothing wrong with a pause and a reminder.

If a meeting took place, or call, it really doesn't matter! The Superintendent has a job to do and he did it. Kudos to him. As I stated earlier, Wheelersburg has top notch coaches that will ensure the vision of the school is carried out. I have faith in them.

Looks like the hero of the anti-Burg crowd, Madison's coach Poff, is stepping down from coaching.

Apparently he's still salty about Burg football and the Burg community from this interview following his decision to leave:

He's getting out while the getting is good, he loses a bunch of talent. Probably find himself coaching elsewhere sooner than you think

I would agree. He's a good coach, so I'm sure he will land somewhere.

Why wouldn't he be salty? He believes his team was cheated and alot of people outside the Wheelersburg school district believes they were too. Especially after the way Wheelersburg played the following week against a team that wasn't as physically gifted as Madison was.

Do you really know who coach Woodward is? Because if you did, you would know you’d be talking out of your wrong hole.

The guy is a terrible coach. No one ever heard of anything from him until these last two seasons. Last year he walked inside the burgs locker, and then this year accused him of cheating. Ran a pee wee style offense and was lucky to have four grown men on the front four. Guy is getting out because he’s going to be now accountable to win. If you watched his team warm up, you’d know that ain’t happening

What he should do is not put himself or his team in a situation to be criticized. I've talked to people and players who have been associated with Wheelersburg in the last 5 years and the common response when asked if they believe this stuff was possible is a yes. Off course you're gonna say different and that's fine. Don't have people associated with your team on the other team's sideline. Clean up your locker room. Don't turn a blind eye things to give Wheelersburg a competitive advantage.

How is he a terrible coach? In 5 years he took a team that hadn't won anything and made them a winner. Wheelersburg was concerned all season about Madison based on last year's game and expected a rematch. Madison easily could've won in 2017 and came with 4 yards or a referee that didn't get out of the way from tying the game up this year. The wing T is a great offense ran by many teams for years. Johnstown ran the ball at will against Wheelersburg and threw one pass. While Wheelersburg couldn't move the ball with better players throwing it allover the field. Does that make Woodward a bad coach?

Madison ran the same offense before Poff came along and were a perennial 5-5, 6-4 team. The seniors he had this year were a special group of athletes that doesn’t come around much. That’s why they were successful. Madison could of should of...but they didn’t. They lost fair and square just like The Burg lost fair and square to Johnstown. Johnstown outplayed Burg just like Burg outplayed Madison. It’s that simple and no need to make anything more of it. Cato seems to have a deep grudge against Burg and takes ANY rumor or innuendo as fact.

Madison was outplayed by Burg for sure. Johnstown outplayed Burg. It happens. The garbage about the sideline was just that.....garbage.

This issue keeps coming up and yet no one has shown any credibility proof that there was any wrongdoing.

Again you have no idea who you’re talking about. The man is a farm kid from a well respected family inGallia County. Has a masters degree in teaching. Hes been coaching for the past 10 years with essentially the same staff. His winning percentage is probably in the top 10 in the state. He has led the pirates to the last 6 Regionals winning three and a state championship. He is about as by the book as one can get. And because some idiot thought that a cameraman who shoots videos was capable of relaying plays, on Madison’s best drive of the night mind you, to the burg staff, Coach Woodward’s integrity is now being questioned. You must’ve not talked to real burg people. I don’t have to defend it because there’s nothing to defend but I will come on here and back coach Woodward because I know better. If you truly knew him , you would too. But you’re using heresay to jump on the bandwagon of trying to tear down what is a great program.

Burg doesn't recruit... it's as simple as kids not wanting to lose and transferring and then telling their old buddies from other schools that they should come too. Burg has just been so much more successful than most other schools in the area, it's a simple concept.

Same thing was said about Itonton in the 80’s and 90’s including people from wheelersburg, now it’s happening to them they don’t like it but that’s how people talk but I do agree people wanna be around a winning program and will transfer or move into that teams district without being recruited

Why not hope that your kid could help turn the program around? That's the way it should be!

That’s a good point but like I said every situation is different , for instance college have you looked at how much it cost to go? And if your son or daughter gets more looks and has more opportunity at a scholarship at a different school is that worth it?i really don’t know but you have to do what you think is best for your child

Parents put too much emphasis on "looks." Sports are supposed to be fun and enjoyable. Community and school pride should be at the forefront of high school sports. Why is it about "looks."

exactly. success is rare in this area and kids tend to wanna win games and make their high school days count considering 99% of them won't go collegiate.
