YOUNGSTOWN OH- The long wait is finally over and high school football is finally back in the area. No one has been waiting longer than the Ursuline Irish. After an earlier exit then intended from the playoffs last season, the Irish have been waiting for what feels like forever to get back on the field.
Ursuline returns one of the most exciting offensive groups in the state. With Brady Shannon handling the calls under center, and plenty of weapons joining him the Irish promise to be tough to stop. They were ranked #1 in Division 4 in the preseason polls. However, the Irish are not taking the easy route when it comes to their schedule. It is loaded with high caliber teams for upper divisions. It all starts Thursday August 19th as they welcome Bishop Hartley inti Youngstown.
