Don't expect Philo's third year head coach Kevin Krier to forget his roots and start a new game plan from scratch, just because he's only won 7 games in his first two seasons.

Krier knows how to win. He was head coach of the Lady Electrics that advanced to the state semifinal in 2000, posting a 21-5 record.

Now with the boys' team, Krier is looking to turn this Philo team into a winner.

West Muskingum could be the most dangerous team of any in the MVL.

Last year it took the Tornadoes half the year to figure out how to win, but once they did, they made some noise.

The boys in blue are fresh off the school's first MVL football title in 24 years, and are looking for their first basketball title since 1991.

WHIZ's Aaron Spragg takes a closer look at the school on the hill that has high expectations, returning all five starters, not to mentions a...

If there is a couple of differences for John Glenn this season, coach Greg Woodard says it's the the team comaraderie.

The kids seem to sincerely care about each other. The other difference is that starting point guard Colin Bass is back after sitting out all of last season with a torn ACL.

If the Muskies can find a way to finish the season the way they started last year, good things could happen for the team that retuns 6 seniors.

Somehow, year after year, the smallest school in Muskingum County finds a way to be one of the best.

Last year, Rosecrans advanced to the elite eight, but the Bishops felt they sold themselves short of a state championship with a group of seniors as good as any in the state.

Those four kids are gone, but their legacy remains. The 2005 Bishops enter the season with 13 straight sectional titles, back to back district championships and as defending CCL champs.
