Muscle Connection H.S. Football Preview: Boardman Spartans

Posted: Updated:

Spartans head football coach Joe Ignazio is in his fifth year and is putting a lot on his junior quarterback Michael O'Horo.

"He's tough as nails and with a wrestling background we're going to rely on him a lot," said Ignazio who has 60 players, including a handful of starters on both sides.

O'Horo, a junior, is also expected to be a force on defense. "The kid has a work ethic that most kids don't have," Ignazio said.

Both lines return a lot of experience. 

Tino Arcuri is a two year veteran at defensive end and offensive tackle, Evan Walton is back on the line as well as Mike Melewski and three-year starter Bobby Toth.

The key for the Spartans playing past week 10 is getting some young kids used to the varsity game. "We have some young skilled guys, a great big junior class with some talent, but obviously they're inexperienced," Ignazio said.

The Spartans open the season against the East Golden Bears.
