    DuBois Joining D9 Large School Division

    Looking at the PA State Little League championships listed at the city park, the DuBois baseball must have at least five or six state championships, right? Yeah, it doesn’t work like that unfortunately. A good feeder program with consistent coaching and the same techniques and plays being called as varsity will definitely help. I posted about Southern Columbia and how it runs. There’s no doubt it works. Berwick football was the same way in the 80’s and 90’s under Coach Curry. A town of 10,000 had over 5,000 people at home football games and they won numerous state championships and even a couple national titles. They had players go D1. Ron Powlus started at quarterback for Notre Dame. Someone mentioned that DuBois isn’t a football town. I’d go a step further and say DuBois just isn’t a sports town period. There’s no school spirit whatsoever in town. Wendy’s puts up players of the week (football) on their marquee. That’s it. I haven’t noticed any other business mention any other sports team on their signs. The girls Volleyball team lost one game to Warren during the season. They did win the D9 championship. (As previously mentioned, with only like 2 other schools in their class, it’s really not that hard to be D9 champs for DuBois). But with that being said, they played the local teams and got beat handedly in the playoffs to Thomas Jefferson. Playing a soft D9 schedule next year should make the football team win at least 7 games, but once they get out of D9 in the playoffs, it’ll be like it has been the past 25 years with them losing most likely. Hopefully some day they’ll get over that hump. Watch these videos about Berwick. This is the culture of winning programs.

    A mother approached a basketball coach I know asking "Why isn't my son playing ?" His response..."You need to ask him that in the summer."

    Parents are out of their freaking minds if they went to the SCHOOL BOARD about playing time.

    Big school, small school or playoffs, regular season...it doesn't matter. The mentality should be "we will defeat our opponent". It should not be made into an excuse when you don't. Confidence should reside in preparation and your abilities. Not them. Most teams lose games days before it's even played. I disagree with your disagree (ha!). Teams/players are like snowflakes.

    They will get a few wins now being a big fish in a small pond. Other than returning from 50 years ago of establishing back some local rivalries (ie. savings travel expenses) I dont see the benefit competitively. They'll make the playoffs and continue to get womped in the first round.

    Spam & Scam Calls Today!

    Just today, I've received 12 scam calls on my cell phone. My house phone/business phone had 3 today. Yesterday was 8 and 2. One number was 000-000-0000 I don't answer an unknown call, I just reject them and later on I will decide about blocking their number. Has anyone else seen a rise of these calls the last few days??
