St. Ed's coach Tom Lombardo joined the Sam Bourquin Show Wednesday to talk about their matchup with Hoban and what he learned about his kids in their first game against Pine Richland.

"This group will improve faster because they're more mature, but the more reps we have, the more experience we have," Lombardo said.

"We lost a lot due to graduation from last year's team."

The Eagles are the defending Division I State Champions and Friday's matchup will pit them against Division II state champ Hoban, who is coming off a 42-14 win over Stark County power Canton McKinley.

Coach Lombardo says that Hoban's the real deal.

"They can run it, they can throw it, they're well coached, so it'll be a good challenge for us."

AUDIO: Rich Heldenfels Calls It A Career At The ABJ

Written by
After 22 years at the Akron Beacon Journal, Rich Heldenfels is calling it a career. And on his 65th birthday, no less.

Heldenfels has been a pop culture writer at the Beacon since 1994, and he joined the Ray Horner Morning Show on his final day on the job. Heldenfels talked about his arrival into Akron by way of Schenectady, New York, and was thrust into work head-first during the OJ Simpson saga in ’94.

The long-time Beacon writer says some of his favorite memories were meeting local celebrities who went national, such as Steve Harvey Drew Carey, and LeBron James, and walking around the set of 25 Hill at Derby Downs.

Heldenfels will still teach at the University of Akron, but now that his wife has also retired, he felt this was a good time to step away from the paper.
