It's been over a month since my last post, and quite honestly not alot has happened in, on, or around the SM West football scene, except for several college signings. They are as follows:
Prestan Garcia, LB: Fort Scott C.C.
Danny Herring, DB: Fort Scott C.C.
Zach Allen, RB: Fort Scott C.C.
Dillon Buddenmeyer, WR: Midland Lutheran College
Congratulations to the players who decided to take their talents to the next level. If you're wondering the destinations of SM West's two All-State selections--Darron Harvey and Justin Scott--there has been no press release on the two athletes decisions yet. Stay tuned.
**In Sunflower Conference news, Olathe North junior defensive lineman Lucas Vincent received an offer from Nebraska this past week. He is getting attention from the majority of the Big 12 North, and Colorado State.
**It appears the Chip Sherman is the new head football coach at SM East. Although there is no direct media report yet, rumors have pointed to Sherman taking the reins for the Lancers. Sherman spent the 2008 season at Salina South high school where he helped the team compile an 8-3 record and a berth in the Sectional Round of the playoffs.
Previous to that, Sherman spent 20 years at Platte County high school in Missouri. During that span Sherman compiled a record of 191-37, including Missouri Class 3A State Championships in 2000, 2001, and 2002. Sherman's great success attributed to his notoriety as one of the best high school coaches in the KC Metro prior to his stint in Salina.
Sherman will be taking over a SM East program that has never won more than seven games in a season.
