Your Favorite Steel Valley Conference Team From Back In The Day.

Ok Gentlemen who was your favorite (or who you thought was the best) Steel Valley Conference team from back in the day? From the existence of the conference to the end. Could be the league title holder or runner up. Or even the cellar dweller. Just curious on who was your favorite?

1987 Fitch probably the greatest cellar dweller of all time

Agreed. The 87 team had some close losses (0-3 Mentor, 0-3 Boardman, 3-7 Mooney, and 16-21 Ursuline) on route to finishing 4-5 that year. Nice win over Canton Mckinley though that year 14-7.

99 Boardman team was special for me. Beat Ignatius and Steubenville that year. Lost their starting QB during the season and ended up losing in 2nd round of the playoffs to Pickerington by 3. That was a talented squad. Same with the 2001 team. Just couldn't get past Mr. Clarett and WGH.

I'm a city series guy, but the most enjoyable team to watch IMO was the 1990 WGH Raiders. Dangerous on the ground and air. Omar Provitt was the price of admission. I worked EMS then so I saw many games for free, but a few games I paid for & one of them was the Harding-Mooney games @ YSU that year. Packed (back when High school football packed Stambaugh) and worth every penny.

Funny thing is that 90 Harding team wasn't officially part of the SVC yet, as they weren't fully eligible for the title until 1991. I think the title was a 3-way share between Fitch, Boardman, and Mooney. Kind of a disappointing end to the season for the Spartans, dropping a 38-0 tilt to Fitch in week 10 then Harding in round 1 in front of a packed house in Niles...

That was another great year for the SVC (+Harding). Fitch would end St. Ignatius's long winning streak the next week the same night Harding defeated Boardman.

Can't believe I forgot the Eagles beat Boardman. Not to take away from Hubbard - at all, but the Spartans must have been down that year. I was a freshman that year. Afraid I can't remember the key players in that season though I remember Rudy was a Buckeye by then. Fun to watch while he was at HHS! Thanks for the memories...

Wow, that either slipped my mind or I wasn't aware they weren't eligible for the SVC crown. I just assumed after the break up of the AAAC they were already full fledged members of the SVC. Did they play Fitch that year?

Yeah, beat Fitch 20-14 in Week 9. Then had the last minute comeback against Howland (a fairly respectable 8-1 team themselves) in week 10. I don't think Harding played any other SVC teams besides Fitch that year, unless they played Mooney as well.

Mooney beat Fitch during the regular season, and Boardman beat Mooney 17-16 in OT. Fitch at 8-2 grabbed the last spot in the postseason in region 1.

WGH played Fitch twice in 1990...

Week 9- WGH 20, Fitch 14
Week 12- WGH 31, Fitch 6

If memory serves me correctly, I believe that loss for the Spartans was home. Correct?

Also I remember sitting in Berea for the playoff game vs Iggy next to some older Ignatius fans hearing them talk about how Fitch wasn't going to know what happens to them and how they were going to be in for a long night. On the opening Falcon drive the Falcons ran off a big one to score and never looked back. Surprise gentleman I think it was Iggy who didn't know what happened to them that evening. Great game! Gotta love the ole SVC.

Yes Omar was definitely worth the price of admission. I know he gave the Falcons fits.

'87 Boardman - state runners up in D-1. Only other losses were close ones to d-3 state champ Mooney and at AAA WPIAL runner-up New Castle.

'95 boardman - lost in state semis to Ignatius, who also handed them a tightly contested regular season loss. The run D on that team was really good. Lots of good DL and LB. That team was all about ball control and good D. Excellent kicker in Mark Griffiths.

'01 Boardman - only losses were to Clarett/WGH and state champ Ignatius. Arguably the most talented team Boardman had. Had 3 D-1 OL (2 that made NFL), possibly the best RB in school history in Evan Beard(Navy), a TE who went to WVU and Tommie Zetts at QB (4 yr starter at ysu). Also had a WR who went to So Illinois. Kicker was all state and went to WVU and OSU. Just a well rounded team with a lot of size and depth. Might have been the 3rd or 4th best team in the state behind Iggy and WGH. Unfortunately both were in our region.

Hubbard was in SVC from 1950 to 1979. They didn't play Boardman in 1950, as Boardman wasn't a charter member of the SVC, joining in 1951, but from 1951 to 1979, Boardman led series 17-11-1. So Hubbard actually fared pretty well, considering the size difference, winning 11 of 29. (1,894 to 1,114 in grades 9-12 in 1967)

1951 A Hubbard 20-13
1952 H Boardman 7-6
1953 A Boardman 35-6 Att.: 2,000
1954 H Hubbard 13-7 Homecoming

Note: Number in parentheses is the number of teams in the SVC at that time.

Special thanks to YTOWN from whom I derived most of this history of the SVC who posted it for the second time on 30 September 2010.

Others sources include: “Youngstown Vindicator”, “News Reporter”, “Hubbard News”, “Hubbard Eagle”

Note#1: Niles left due to not finding it practical or to their advantage to be committed and obligated by league rules. The rules made it extremely difficult and nearly impossible to schedule other teams in the area to supplement their schedule.

Note#2: Brookfield left due to larger opponents enrollments, financial losses in games that were mismatches, with safety and the morale of participating players the major factor in the exit. In seven seasons in the SVC, the Warriors won only six games winning contests from Girard, Campbell and Hubbard only.

Note#3: Girard left due to not being able to compete having a record of 15-43 over last ten seasons in the league, eleven coming against the smaller schools and the 1970 freshman team was winless.

Hey Roberto, give Harding the 2002 title. Boardman and Fitch were still in the league that season...

Great time to resurrect this topic. Boardman will be playing Howland for the first time since the 1987 regular season...The games in 86 and 87 must've both been from the orginal contract when Howland was an SVC member.

I'm too young to Remember Brookfield in the SVC. Does anybody know why they even considered the SVC to begin with?

Not sure why they were even admitted. Used to get blitzed by most of the SVC.
The scores weren't pretty.

Think we beat them 56-0 and 55-0, in 67 & 68.
Was at the '68 game. Whitewash.

They were the first team to exit the SVC.
Then Girard, Campbell, Hubbard and Struthers.

Once teams figured they couldn't compete, they split.

1989 Fitch. Set many school records offensively. Outright SVC champs. Lost a tough 19-13 game to WWR. 1 play here or there changes that game. Got hosed by the Stark County refs at Massillon. Ghost penalty after ghost penalty. Balls that bounced were called catches for the Tigers. Finished 8-2 and just missed the playoffs under the old 4 team regions. A bunch of great seniors on that team that were a part of back to back SVC champion teams.

So right. Like my classes, I must not have been paying attention! At least while I was at HHS (66-69/70), we also had some good competitive baseball with the Spartans. Always fun! Thanks for your great information. BTW, I believe Hubbard graduated ~1200 my senior year. I actually counted the yearbook pics not long ago (for another thread). LOL.

'01 Boardman - only losses were to Clarett/WGH and state champ Ignatius. Arguably the most talented team Boardman had. Had 3 D-1 OL (2 that made NFL), possibly the best RB in school history in Evan Beard(Navy), a TE who went to WVU and Tommie Zetts at QB (4 yr starter at ysu). Also had a WR who went to So Illinois. Kicker was all state and went to WVU and OSU. Just a well rounded team with a lot of size and depth. Might have been the 3rd or 4th best team in the state behind Iggy and WGH. Unfortunately both were in our region.

That 01 team was really talented and very big. Was a fun team to watch.

Please forgive my ignorance as I am from the opposite corner of the state. Looking at the names in the conference-were some of the schools much larger enrollment-wise back in the 60s and 70s? I would guess probably most schools in Mahoning/Trumbull counties have seen some enrollment decline.

I see names like Warren JFK and Hubbard that I believe are in smaller divisions now?

Or was there separate divisions based on enrollment? Or did they just man up and take on all comers?

Lots of great football history in the Steel Valley!
