Danny Clark would be a cancer if added to the Zip football program. He is immature and gets bad guidance from his father. Although it would be fun to see who is the most obnoxious dad on the team, Clark's or Cato's :lol:. Danny is a hell of a football player, but he needs to go to someplace where he can learn humility and ego control. Art should not take that on in his first year as he seeks to set his own culture/values.

Orrville sophomore Marquael Parks was recently named as the Ohio Player of the year regardless of division by MaxPreps:

 

"OHIO PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Marquael Parks, Orrville, RB, Soph. 
Amazing talent capped historic season individually and collectively with a Division V state title. Scored 56 total touchdowns and 336 points, which both rank second for single-seasons in state history. Only Harvest Prep's Daniel Bangura scored more (57 TDs and 348 points). Parks scored TDs rushing, receiving and via return (punt, kickoff, interception and fumble). He ran for 2,799 yards and had 474 yards receiving. "

Parks was also named to the MaxPreps 2018 sophomore All American team:

 

 

 

and...

 

Thomas Worthington sophomore Sheron Phipps had the #1 national play of the year according to MaxPreps:

 

 

The new coaches should offer both Parks and Phipps.

From what I  understand, Danny's not the problem and is a decent kid.  Danny's biggest problem is a dad living through his kids that created unreasonable expectations and that he's just not on the level of a P5 talent.  He was a great high school freshman and sophomore and between the expectations for his growth as a player and the hype created by his dad (e.g. the nickname "The Prototype") schools moved too early on him.  He might do well at a MAC school.

There is a lot of truth in what you say. Danny's only hope is to get with a strong program and head coach who will mitigate Danny's father's disruptive influence. Unfortunately Danny has been allowed to develop an ego and that has not served him, nor the team he plays for, well. He has yet to learn that a strong dose of humility will actually make him a better QB and leader.

 

One thing would be cool, though, is to watch the clown show of Danny's dad and Cato's dad going at it as they helicopter over their kids. That might be worth the price of admission alone. Of course it might wreck the program but they have never cared about anything other than themselves and enhancing their egos.
