For a team that went 9-1, Ridgewood Football had a long offseason.

Last year's head coach, Kevin Foster, is now in prison, serving a one year sentence for gross sexual imposition with an eleven year old girl.

Twelve year assistant John Slusser was left to pick up the pieces and assume the head coaching role.

If you know anything about MVL football, you know Crooksville's village park is the place to be on Friday nights.

The small Perry County community basically shuts down to watch their Ceramics play under the lights, and this year is no different.

With a solid core of players returning to the field after qualifying for the D-5 playoffs last season, the Ceramics are ready to compete for their first MVL title since 1997.

Last season John Glenn had the biggest fall off in the MVL. The Muskies went from a playoff appearance in 2004 to an uncharacteristic 2-8 last season. In fact, the Muskies had their lowest point total in 16 years averaging close to eight points per game.

2005 should see a significant turnaround. The fish only lose three starters total, return all of their skill players and their home field has received a facelift. So don't be suprised if the Muskies re-surface as a league contender....
