Our final MVL team preview is the team that took the whole thing a year ago. For Sheridan, winning the league is nothing new. In fact, normally nothing is new in Thornville. Coach Paul Culver is beginning his fourth decade as the leader of the Generals, but on the surface there are some changes for for Sheridan, including the surface. Dig deeper, and you'll find the same old red rage. JT Raymond has more.
It was a game that some thought would be a blowout, but it played out more like an instant classic. Tri-Valley and Upper Arlington's week one clash went all the way down to the wire, before the Golden Bears nabbed up a 24-17 victory.
This season's matchup promises to be just as exciting. And to help us get ready, Scottie coach Justin Buttermore sat down with WHIZ to go over last year's film in our first edition of the Football Film Session.
In recent years in New Concord, it's been three years off and three years on for the Muskies when it comes to playoff appearances. From 2005-2007, John Kelley's group were battling in the post season. The past three years, they have fallen short.

There may be no area team ready to put last season behind them more than the New Lexington Panthers. A 2-8 record is nothing any team wants to duplicate, but on The Rock, 2-8 is beyond unacceptable, and almost unheard of. The season that was a year ago is in the rear view mirror, as Coach Bill Nutt and his crew attempt to focus on what made the Pathers go during the 2008 state semifinal run. Dan Wolfgang has more on the redemption at Rockwell this season.

The annual tradition of 30 Hills played out for the 40th time in the history of Zanesville's football program. The members of the football team have no doubt worked harder over the summer in preparation for the upcoming football season, but they never have more meaningful beads of sweat than they do the Friday before Two-A-Days.

One day after Zanesville's Braily Blair (LB) and Anthony Smith (DE) signed to play college football at Ohio Dominican, Tri-Valley's Kodie Michael and Casey Williams joined the party. Williams (WR) signed the dotted line Thursday afternoon to make his commitment official with the D-II school. The sure-handed receiver is coming off an outstanding senior season where he was named to the D-II, All-Ohio third team. Down in the trenches, Kodie Michael (DL, OL) also...
When you type a kid's name into google and the page explodes with youtube highlights, you know he's a big deal. With a 6-3, 215 pound frame, division one school's such as West Virginia, Toledo and Akron saw Zach Shaw as a big deal, but only one fit the mold for the Coshocton linebacker. In one of the biggest signings in Redskins history, Shaw signed to play Big Ten football at Indiana University.
