Massilion HS is an interesting yet sad case. My in-laws live up in that area and we drove by the stadium one night on the way to dinner. To say the least it was impressive not to mention the indoor practice bubble that rivals many college and pro facilities. But what isn't mentioned is their inability of difficulty to pass levies to help with teacher pay and other academic issues. Then you take into consideration that Massilion really has been an afterthought in Ohio HS football over the past decade or so and its even more shocking. They sure do love their Tiger football though.
