What are your thoughts on this team? Where do you rank them amongst other 8th grade teams?

1. Meigs
2.Jackson/Waverly
Those are the top 3 8th grade teams in SouthernOhio.
Logan and Vinton County are also solid basketball teams.

Basketball is about matchups. I’m familiar with both teams a bit. I think Meigs guards are way bigger and stronger and almost as quick and Meigs has a kid just like Futhey.

They could beat each other but 1 game...my money is on Meigs.

May be a challenge for Waverly this season. I'm hearing a couple of our top players are passing on basketball. Hope the information I'm getting is wrong.

I believe the word is out there that if someone wanted a nice payday for a tourney that these three teams in it would definitely pack the gym....we shall see if anyone acts upon it.......

Let me check with the gym's availability in Waverly. Sounds like some tremendous games to be played, and maybe we can get Chillicothe to come as well heard they have a pretty good 8th grade team.

sounds great!!!! Chillicothe has some outstanding athletes......I have watched a few in other sports play on travel teams as well as their own school kids in all sports as well and Chillicothe has some good talent and the team added to the list of Jackson, Waverly, Meigs, and Chillicothe......what a tournament that would be........

Chillicothe a good team with nice size and maybe the most athletic player...but Jackson will definitely play them 2x and likely a 3rd time in FAC tournament.

Not sure of games limit

Fairland has a great team, I’d pull for them. A little close would be Logan Elm. They have talent.

Waverly scrimmages Piketon on the 20th. Waverly should do well but I’d like to go see the game. I’d like to see how much they’ve improved since last year because I’ve heard that they’ve played aau basketball all summer long with Mark and trey being on the #2 ranked team in the state and will and wade on the #12 ranked team in the state. Should be exciting this year!

Waverly 8th grade gets the win 49-13 over Northwest. Trey Robertson, Will Futhey, and Wade Futhey looked very good tonight. They play at home against valley this Thursday.

Yes, we beat them in every quarter not including the quarter that the 2nd string played the whole quarter. VC has a very nice program and has a lot of size they’re a great team.

Very nice win for the Tigers tonight. Nobody has beaten them when healthy. Basketball is a game of guards. Minford has a lot of size for a junior high team but Waverly is so tough because of Robertson and Stulley. The future is very very bright for Waverly!

Yes indeed. It would be nice to get a couple of the kids back next year who didn’t play 8th grade this year.

I am sure Penn Morrison is going to focus on Tennis. It would be nice to get back Cai Marquez.

Penn is a heck of a tennis player of course. I'm hearing he would like to play QB in high school. He throws a really nice ball...and he's crafty, intelligent and athletic. We're going to have several kids who can play QB the next few years. That's a good thing :)

Tigers 7th Grade & 8th Grade teams are playing in the Championship games of the Logan tournament Saturday, February 17.
8th grade controlled and beat a very good Meigs team last night. They will be playing Logan.

Was that the first loss ever in Jr. High for the Meigs 8th grade team? Being hearing about them for a couple years now.

Logan 8th is really good also. I believe they took Waverly to OT earlier this year. Who does the Waverly 7th play in the finals? Waverly 8th plays at 7:00 not sure about the 7th grade time. It's either at 1:00 or 2:00.

I believe so. I think Meigs was 18-0 last year and undefeated this year. Pretty sure they trounced Logan last year at least once...maybe not, all the games get confusing lol.

Logan had their chance to beat Waverly at Rio. Wade Futhey had about 17 and couldn’t miss and Will wasn’t 100% but grabbed a huge offensive rebound off a missed free throw in that game. Trey wasn’t on fire like usual but did hit a big 3 in OT and did his thing. Logan had close shot after close shot but just kept badly missing them IMO to the Will factor. Logan May have the best coach I’ve seen all season.

I just don’t think Logan has the quickness to beat Waverly. Myers is a great great player and going to be an incredible varsity player down the road. They have a solid team for sure but I just think Waverly is 10-15 points better. I really think Waverly could Press them and give them trouble/wear them down.

Could be a really good game but guessing Waverly controls it.

Ironman92: Thanks for the info and analysis of the match-up vs Logan. It will be interesting to see how this games plays out. Does Jackson 8th grade have any games left to play?

No problem, yes we finished up Monday at Chillicothe due to a coin toss I hear. They beat us in the last minute to end both of our seasons. Their coach has done a great job. They have really improved from last season and throughout this season.

Big boy ball next season, should be fun!

I was from Jackson to Columbus today, never really got bad above Circleville but was very bad Jackson to near Chillicothe, but then cleared pretty good. Probably a good decision.

Are they going to play it tomorrow or some other time?
