Matt Christopher is a man with muscles upon muscles. A 6-foot-1, 230-pound hitting machine during his playing days, which ended in 1995, he still looks unbreakable.

During these midsummer nights, plenty of high school football coaches have restless minds. For some, those worries will last all season long.


GREEN  They asked for time. Now Green High School may be looking for company to come to the Federal League.

Monday’s deadline to apply for membership to the Federal League came, and Green sought and received an extension to decide whether the Summit County school will apply for Federal membership.

An idea of expanding the Federal League into two divisions — going north into Summit County — is just about dead. Members of the Federal League (Lake, Hoover, McKinley, GlenOak, Perry and Jackson) invited seven schools, all outside of Stark County, to discuss the prospects of a North and South division in the league.

CANTON  The initial plan was for Sam Groff to play linebacker in Saturday’s CSE Federal Credit Union Repository-Pro Football Hall of Fame East-West All-Star Game.

CANTON  No one at Sandy Valley High School ever runs like that. Not like the wind. Not like they were born with a natural burst of jet fuel.

They were strong as young men. Athletic and skilled as boys. Tough beyond their years.

If Green is going to join the Federal League, it may be doing so alone. Wadsworth informed Federal League commissioner Joe Eaton it is not interested in leaving the Suburban League to join the Federal League.
