Just my opinion but experience at the HS level is overrated . At 14u travel ball these kids that play for the best travel teams are seeing better pitching in the summer at 13-14u than what they see in HS ( at least on a consistent level) . The pitching overall in SEO is just not so good . A few dandies , very many that just pitch 4-5 months a year and throw because no one else is available .

My daughter improved each year in high school.
Played mid level travel ball
Hard to replace the kids the burg has lost the last 2 years

It is awfully quiet considering we're just a couple weeks or so from practices kicking off.

So was burg overrated? What 13-14 year olds are facing better players and pitching than they would face when they play our varsity team? My guess is no one.

Does an angel get it's wings every time Burg brags on itself?

I'm not sure why you are asking me if Burg was over rated ,( I certainly didn't intend for it to read that way ) I was actually referring to at least one Burg youngster , probably two , who at the 14u level def saw better pitching than what they will see from 90% of the SOC , if you play for the lasers or outlaws at 14u you see great pitching most games . Outlaws # 1 already verbally committed to Ohio State . Few others already committed to D1 college programs .

Ok , we are on the same page , but there is a LOT of good players in the SOC this year , NW has 2 kids with high level experience , Oak Hill has a couple, Minford has several , should make for a more balanced , competitive conference .The young pitcher at Minford looked great this fall with her travel team . Going to be a good year. Burg still king til someone steps up . Edit : Forgot to mention Waverly should be up this year as well compared to previous years .

Honestly, who can compete with the scioto county all stars anyways? They are the best in every sport and they SHOULD be for obvious reasons. But to say there's no talent anywhere else is just ignorant.

Just out of curiosity why do you think parents decide to bring there children into the burg school system?

I'm not knocking Burg. Congratulations to them on having a program that draws people in like they do.
I think a lot of programs could learn from Burgs model to success.
The sad thing is people would rather jump on their coat tails and ride their success rather than getting involved with their own programs and making them better.

You look at some of the programs that have made strides around here in the last couple years. They will tell you they are copying what they have seen Burg do.

The burg doesn’t excell because of transfers. They get the transfers because they excell.

Did you go to "the burg"? If so, your lack of spelling makes me question their academics. That's why kids transfer in, right? Academic reasons only. I'm not knocking on Burg either. If I lived in Scioto county, I guarantee my kid would go there. But my point is, stop bragging because you are expected to be the best anyways. No one is going to be surprised when you win.

Excel :lol: feel better now
Who is bragging? You were the one that insinuated the burgs only good because they get transfers. I just disagreed with you. Apologies in advance for any misspelling :roll:
