High school football: Highland’s Michael Doak contributes all over lines

Michael Doak was not gifted with freakish athleticism and does not have aspirations of playing football at a school like Miami (Fla.), where his grandfather, Norman Blanchard, was starting center from 1964-65. That’s fine with the Highland two-way lineman, who is proud of his heritage but prefers to stay out of the limelight. He instead Read More…

    BRUNSWICK — Eric Bulic, Sean Magalski, Elliot Laisure, Adam Weber and Co. weren’t going to let up — not in their last game at Judy Kirsch Field with a Division I, Region 1 playoff berth within their grasp. It was a defensive performance of a lifetime for the Brunswick football team, which surprisingly Read More…

High School Football: Elyria at Medina

  MEDINA — The Medina football team’s season ended Friday night with a familiar plot. The Bees stayed within reach for much of the game, but couldn’t keep up with a potent opponent keyed by a juggernaut offense. Playoff-bound Elyria had 559 yards total offense despite a steady rain and rolled to a 50-20 win Read More…

High School Football: Nordonia at Wadsworth

WADSWORTH — Wadsworth football coach Greg Dennison and wide receiver/defensive back Austin White knew there were things the Grizzlies could have done better, but they also acknowledged the greatness of Nordonia. The big, strong and very fast Knights staged a clinic Friday, putting the finishing touches on an undefeated regular season with an impressive 41-7 Read More…

High School Football: Keystone at Black River

SULLIVAN TWP. — The Keystone football team’s quest for its first playoff appearance didn’t last long. In fact, the Wildcats needed just 4:51 to wrap that up Friday in a 54-20 Patriot Athletic Conference Stars Division win over Black River. Those 291 seconds were jam-packed with action, as Keystone (8-2, 4-1) blitzed the Pirates (4-6, Read More…

High School Football: Highland at Cloverleaf

WESTFIELD TWP. — Two high school football teams headed in opposite directions met as conference rivals for the last time Friday night. The result was expected. Highland and Cloverleaf lined up across from each other for the final time as Suburban League foes and the Hornets walked away with a convincing 41-0 victory. The Colts Read More…

High School Football: Buckeye at Firelands

HENRIETTA TWP. — Trevor Thome’s ability to make opposing defenses miss has made him one of the premier running backs in the area. That trend continued Friday night, as the Buckeye junior answered the call by finding the end zone three times to help the Bucks to a 28-7 Patriot Athletic Conference Stars Division road Read More…

Taking my son Keegan to his first football game was an experience I will never forget. We don’t get a whole lot of time together since his mother and I separated — a few days every week, one with just him when I am not working and one with him and his sister, Keira, on Read More…

High School Football: Brunswick at Strongsville

    STRONGSVILLE — Chalk one up for Brunstucky. It’s an inaccurate and overused moniker, but Brunswick defensive end Elliot Laisure alluded to it Friday after the Blue Devils recorded a crucial 27-14 Northeast Ohio Conference Valley Division victory over border rival Strongsville at packed Pat Catan Stadium. “(The rivalry) has been going on 30 Read More…
