Hornets are a classy bunch

  Highland quarterback Bruce Kinsey and his teammates almost never lose their composure on the football field. But when a remarkable ride comes to an end, as it did Friday with a 41-13 Division II state semifinal loss to powerful and incredibly fast Glenville at Byers Field, the emotions come pouring out. There were tears Read More…

Robinson to Lattimore a winning combination

  Chad Grant The Gazette PARMA — When two players are clicking the way Marshon Lattimore and Quan Robinson Jr. were Friday night, they can be tough to stop. The duo teamed up to push Glenville past Highland 41-13 in a Division II state semifinal at Byers Field and send the Tarbloooders to their second Read More…

Tarblooders take control in second half

  Albert Grindle The Gazette PARMA — The season the Highland football players will remember for the rest of their lives is over. The Hornets had Glenville on the ropes at halftime after rallying from a two-touchdown hole in a Division II state semifinal at Byers Field. The school of thought was this was exactly Read More…

Highland football: Speed is name of game against Glenville

PARMA — Glenville hasn’t seen a read-option as efficient as Highland’s. The Hornets haven’t seen anything remotely close to the Tarblooders’ speed. The matchups are perfectly clear heading into tonight’s Division II state semifinal at Byers Field. It’s another Northeast Ohio power with D-I college prospects at every level against the intelligent, never-intimidated boys from Read More…

Glenville has been pipeline for big-time college teams

  Brad Bournival The Gazette CLEVELAND — Since the turn of the century, the St. Ignatius football team has hoisted three championship banners in its gym for football. St. Edward has done it once. Glenville? It’s never happened. Truth be told, the Tarblooders have only been to the state finals once — in 2009 — Read More…

Ginn always beats the odds

  Brad Bournival The Gazette CLEVELAND — Should Cleveland Glenville lose to Highland in Friday’s Division II state semifinal don’t look for Tarblooders coach Ted Ginn Sr. to shed any tears. The veteran coach has already beaten something far bigger than anything the Hornets will throw at him. The 58-year-old went for what he thought Read More…

Highland football: Injured Williams stays on field through friend

There’s a reason Grant Wallace leads the Highland football team in tackles: A part of best friend, neighbor and fellow linebacker Keith Williams is on the field with him. “He’s always told me he’d be out there playing for me, that I was playing within him,” said Williams, who shattered two bones in his right Read More…

High school football: Corvo never plays afraid

Highland junior Nick Corvo stands just 6 feet tall and weighs 210 pounds. That’s good size for a defensive back or even a linebacker, but Corvo is the starting defensive end for a 13-0 Hornets team that has made history by advancing to the Division II state semifinals against Glenville (12-0) at Byers Field. How Read More…

High school football: State semifinal set to be held at Byers Field

Travel has been the least of the Highland football fans’ concerns. The Hornets will have a short bus ride for the fourth straight playoff game, as they will play Glenville at Parma’s Byers Field in a Division II state semifinal Friday. The Ohio High School Athletic Assocation announced the site Sunday afternoon. Highland (13-0) began its Read More…

Hornets join elite company

  The 1995 and 2007 Brunswick Blue Devils now have company. The 2013 Highland Hornets became just the third Medina County football team to reach the state semifinals, defeating Avon 24-21 Friday in a thrilling Division II, Region 4 championship game at Brunswick Auto Mart Stadium. “It was amazing,” senior receiver/defensive back Collin Paich said.
