    Most of St. Paul’s linemen come from Pioneer’s enrollment district.

    Suffering? Come on…

    Losing a few high school football games isn’t great, but let’s not pretend anyone cares by the time they graduate.

    Besides, if Pioneer had had a big name coach in years past, and they were winning a lot of games, it would have been because of that coach’s recruiting efforts. Instead of “suffering” on the field, those kids who lost while playing for the Titans would have won while standing on the sidelines.

    @ Riser: When we hear the big name that’s coming, we’d also like to hear why the administration was OK with losing for all those years. Sincerely, the players who had to suffer through those losses.

    Hey Rise if the Titan you act as if you know who the coach is, drop a name. With no teaching job, a declining enrollment and there being no possibility of getting your coaches on campus what big name is coming? Other theN the facilities what does Pioneer have to offer a big name?

    From T. Peterson: A lot of names being mentioned and I know some of the candidates that have been interviewed but none of them have been filled yet. Expect a lot of action after the Christmas break.

    For as long as I can remember, USC was a football power and UCLA was a basketball power. Now, they are both a joke. Cronin Makes Alford look like John Wooden, while Helton makes ANYONE look better.
