I have no idea who this young man is and I also don't follow High School sports, but this I can say: whether his Dad was coach or not, doesn't distract from the fact that this young man is a very talented athlete!! Matt Bodamer, enjoy what your good at and keep playing as long as you can...Good Luck!!

Talent is talent, no matter who your coach is. Some kids just have natural talent and some kids practice off season to improve in the sport that they love. Take all your free time and spend it will your child practicing the sport that he or she loves and the reward of love and pride is the greatest gift your child can ever give you!

Poster November 4, 2012 6:13:00 AM EST, sounds like you have incredible case of daddy issues. Not Mr. Bodamers fault that he has a ton of talent and able to have some great success with it. My hats off to the whole team and the up most respect to this team for all they have accomplished.

PS: Not a Port Alum

The receiver is just as important as is the rest of the team. Matt can throw all he wants, but if there isn't a good receiver to catch it or good blockers, what good is it? The pass has to be caught to count as passing yardage. He owes a big thank you to the rest of the team. Too much emphasis placed on the Quarterback.

SOO happy for Matt and the Port Gators!!!! No, I do not know Matt and am from Emporium. People in this area have to be happy for this team! As the article said, Port only started to play a passing game in the last two years. Matt has to have natural talent to break this record in mostly the last two years!! Goo PORT...GOOD LUCK in the playoffs!!!

1:50, read more articles, Matt is the first to credit his line & WR's. He didn't write the article, it's just about him.

1:50, you don't know football. The quarterback is the number 1 most important part of a football team.

let's not get all catty and nasty! So what if his dad was his coach????

You don't know what you're talking about 4:06. The QB at the time was a much better WR. They moved him to wide out & he made the Big 30 team at that position. This kid was by far the best option at QB, which let them move their best athelete to WR. They then used him in the backfield & wide out. moved him all over. opened things up for everybody.

His dad might have been his coach but the kid has to have talent to accomplish what he has. But I do have to agree with the earlier post. In Port Allegany it depends on who you are. If you have talent but the wrong name you never make it off the bench. If you have no talent and the right name you play. This kid just happens to have both. And 1:19 it is UTMOST - one word.

Whoever the genius is at 5:56, you are the one who has NO clue as to what you're talking about. What they opened up that year was a 3-6 record there, Skippy, and screwed up the whole dynamic of a team that had worked as long and as hard as ANY team, this one included. Adding to your freakin delusional rant is the fact that the #1 QB that year made the Big 30 team as a DEFENSIVE player, get your shit right before you spout off on something you obviously know nothing about. This kid was NOWHERE NEAR the best option for QB, as evidenced by their record, and the following year's record too. My god people are so stupid when it comes to high school football around here. That's right, AROUND HERE!!!! We'll see how the 'Dream Team' from Port does in a few weeks, they can kick the shit out of OE, CC, C, S, Sh, everyone around here, but those teams aren't the ones they'll see in the playoffs.
It comes down to coaching, folks, and Port aint got it.
Stay classy Port.

Okay, 3:13, I guess you need to learn the simple rules of Internet posting.

Rule #1 - Don't feed the trolls! Unfortunately I'm forced to break that rule in order to teach you about...

Rule #2 - Before engaging in a flame war, get the facts right. Failure to do so means "You lose!" and it makes you look stupid.

2009 - Matt Bodamer's Fresheman year. The team was 6-4, losing in the first round of the D-9 playoffs to Coudersport. The team was already 1-1 on week 3, Matt's first start at QB.

2010 - Matt's Sophomore year. 7-5, losing to Curwensville in the D-9 championship game. C'ville would go on to lose the next week in the state playoffs.

2011 - Matt's Junior year. 12-2, losing to Sharpsville in the 1st round of the state playoffs.

The last team to go 3-6 was 2008, when Matt would have been in 8th grade. The starting QB that season was neither Matt, nor the QB he would replace as starter the following season. But in all fairness, I think Matt may have been an equipment manager that year, so maybe the team had a bad season because Matt wasn't getting the towels clean or keeping the kicking tees free of mud. I'm sure you'll figure out a way to blame it on him.

You go ahead and keep posting in that little fantasy world you are living in, and try to convince yourself that you're winning over the argument. Those of us in the real world will just keep rooting for the team, and enjoying the ride for as long as it may last.

Looks like a few disgruntled parents and former players making comments, get over it people. The non Gator fans making comments have more class then you do.
