Weapons in Bellaire

September 12, 2011 - Robert "Bubba" Kapral
This just in: The Bellaire Big Reds are prolific. I watched the athletic Reds dismantle Steubenville Catholic Central Saturday night. Coach Jose Davis has groomed an offense that can score on any play. It is reminiscent of his playing days in the mid 1990s for Coach John Magistro. Sophomore quarterback Spencer Badia is a special talent. He has the ideal mentor in Davis, unquestionably on the short list of all-time great OVAC QBs. Badia has poise beyond his years to go with a powerful and accurate arm. Badia is complemented by a cast of potent offensive characters. The Big Reds have a handful of receivers who can take it to the house. They toss in an effective ground game sparked by Josh Davis. Jose has done a remarkable job in retooling a sagging Big Reds' program. Jose has instant credibility, being a prep and collegiate passing star. The Reds are buying in. Bellaire picked itself off the carpet last year after a season-opening drubbing to Wheeling Central to win six games. This season, the Big Reds are primed to win at least six. ONE publication on Sunday called Beallsville's victory over Bishop Donahue an upset. I beg to differ. I believe the Blue Devils are back as being a small-school power. Coach Dave Caldwell has another dynamic quarterback to run the show. Barring injuries, Beallsville will find itself back in the post-season party. JOHN MARSHALL football is in a shambles. If I was in charge of the Monarch nation, the guy I would go after to rebuild a fractured football program would be Mark Cisar. He has the knowledge, swagger, credibility and youthful vigor to make the Monarchs relevant again in a short time and eventually playing for championship rings.
