southbottomU, you should’ve offered another choice: Salem is not just a HS team. It’s a system that brings players up thru all levels from Rec ball thru Varsity. I’ve always been impressed by that.
You left off "People in Salem care more about football. And put their time, effort, and money where their priorities are (kids and adults)."
Bingo, it all starts at the rec league
All this probably falls under better Coaching and fundamentals
I'd file it under community support
This community support thing might be overestimated. Lake Taylor has little community support and they are an elite program. Pulaski has community support and they haven't been relevant for a while now. It's important, and probably part of the equation, but not the only thing that brings success.
Had to add "they recruit and get all the officials calls" for all the haters. I wonder if those two voters really believe that?
can we make it multiple choice ?
Maybe it needs to be put in order from 1 to 5
I agree, but would it work no matter the system? Is there something about the system that helps in their success? Would Salem be as good if they ran the single wing, spread, or wing t?
Wasn’t referring to an Offense or Defense, but to the involvement of Mags and staff with the lower levels.
Imao the reason given by cd2018 is about 95% the reason that Salem is so successful. I would have voted in this poll if this reason would have been included in the answer to the poll. It would be interesting to add this explanation to the answers and see how many would change there votes.
Salem Park and Rec and football = NR United and Blacksburg soccer
And Christiansburg travel wrestling.
Soccer? What's soccer?????
Between 1989 and 2016, It’s what you had to play in Bburg to win a state championship. All kidding aside, 1bburgfan made a great comparison.
I think the reason for Salem's success is a combination of factors: running the same system from REC league up, coaching, fundamentals and technique, strength and conditioning, emphasis on physical play, film study and knowing your opponent's strengths and weaknesses, balanced offense, aggressive defense, community support, etc...
