Haha- Are you from Canajoharie or from Fort Plain?
If you're from Fort Plain, you don't have football
anyway. So it's just sore grapes! Also, you don't
get the big picture. High school sports is not
about developing professional athletes or even
getting athletic scholarships, it's about helping
young people grow and reach their potential in
life no matter what it might be.I can name you
numerous Canajoharie football players who went
on to very successful careers, what they learned
on the football field helped them to achieve no
matter what path they followed. By the way, a
former Canajoharie football player is now the
associate head football coach at Colgate Uni-

Not from fort plain hell no! And my point has been proven noone famous from the area! Colgate? Please still don't hear about him!!

yea i guess u are correct the kids of the present don't matter at all. ohh waite one minute when u go too retire who will be paying for your ass and taking care of you. the football program brings the community together every week go to a game it is a social event for christ sake. don't u remember being a kid and all the adults said that kids where a waist of time know u have become that old fart saying the same thing.

Haha- Obviously you went to a more prestigious
Ivy League school than Colgate; maybe Harvard or Yale. I'm going to take a wild guess and say that
you don't even have a four year college degree
because if you did you would know that Colgate
University is one of the top liberal arts colleges
in the country and has also produced several NFL

For your info I have a four year degree from one of thee highest ranking schools, and I don't need anyones money to help me survive Im all taken care of for the next 40+ years!! And you thought I was low keyed standard?!! Please!!!

NYSPHSAA determines what classification EVERY school plays in,you dope.Fonda BEDS numbers dropped,which places them in Class C Section 2.Do you want to debate football with me? trust me,you dont.
#48 Jul 31, 2011
I think the whole canjo school smells like rotten sewage and farts
#49 Aug 1, 2011
Haha- Obviously this high ranking school you
attended doesn't teach writing or English comp-
isition or grammar judging from the way you write.
Who's taking care of you, Social Services?
By the way "stu", even though Fonda is in Class
C, their enrollment is much higher than Canajoharie's because Fonda is a large "C" and
Canjoharie is at the bottom of the "C"s. However,
I wish them both the best in the up-coming season.
There aren't many schools in the area still play-
ing football, so let's support both Canajoharie

i agree 100% i know the beds and how it works thanks (stu) i was not bashing fonda. i am stating the fact that the schools are much different in size and that they are both competitve in the football arena. i guess that i am more proud of canjo we have gotten much better with less kids (not a knock to fonda but i am sure if u ask any fonda alum they would say with there past history they should b able to win the c easy) it shows how good the c r.

Not sure where or how you folks get your information.To say "There are way more than 5 scholarships handed out to Class A Football players" is a misleading remark.If a Class A football player is recruited by say,Nichols College in Mass,then there are NO SCHOLARSHIPS,that is D3.
The biggest difference in Class AA all the way to D really is line play/talent/size.Sure,odds are Shen with 2300 kids has a better chance of sending a RB to a D1 school,but most,if not every high school has a kid who can run the ball behind Shens line.
In addition,just because your school may be playing an "A" schedule,certainly doesn't mean they BELONG there.I'll take Canajoharie,Fonda...many small schools over Ichabod Crane,Broadalbin Perth & others.Fonda alone is 16-2 lifetime against BP.A lot has to do with the youth programs/Varsity Coaching,jv coaching etc..Really,in Section 2,there are a lot of strong programs,& a lot of weak programs.
So,don't judge a kid by what classification his school plays in.Rather,judge each player by technique & personal ability.

2011/12 BEDS #s NYSPHSAA
Fonda 371 Canajoharie 264-If you think thats a disparity try comparing Shen/Nisky/LaSalle.....the dropoff in talent from each level to the next isn't as big as you may be led to believe.It's about the programs at the lower levels.....
#53 Aug 2, 2011
stu- You just proved my point, Fonda has forty
percent more students than Canajoharie, that's
a big difference! Also, you can't talk about
schools such as LaSalle, it's a private school
and therefore it can recruit students from any
other district, BEDS numbers don't matter. If
you look at the number of sectional champion-
ships won by Canajoharie and Fonda since sec-
tional play started, I think you will find
the numbers to be very close. I would agree
that overall Fonda has had a more successful
program, especially in head-to-head competi-
tion, but both programs have a proud history,
so let's not diminish either one, and let's
enjoy our local high school football.

stu and old timer i love both your points it is great to see people come on this site and have valid points. noone love high school football more than i and it is fantastic to have to other people on here that have the same views. what i love about high school football is these kids for the most part are playing for the love and resect of the game and the community. on a side note the high school programs are a reflection of the youth program and the canjo youth and fonda youth program is one of if not the best around. those guys in canjo do a wonderful job.
#55 Aug 2, 2011
I agree Old Timer-both programs are good.But,somebody has to be smallest,& somebody has to be the biggest.When Canjo drops to "D",you cannot just expect them to win the section every year.
Cannot wait for the season though guys;it'll be fun!
