    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…

  YORK TWP. — Championship teams aren’t bought on supermarket shelves. Blood, sweat and tears are required to mold them into works of art. The Buckeye football team found out vividly what the finished product looks like. Dominating the second half from start to finish Friday, coach Mark Pinzone’s Bucks rallied to bury neighboring Keystone Read More…

High School Football: Copley at Wadsworth

WADSWORTH — Five snaps. That’s all Wadsworth’s Daniel Weinerman needed late Friday night to catch his breath before scoring the game-winning touchdown to help the Grizzlies past Copley 34-27 in Suburban League action. After carrying the ball 29 times and taking a beating on just about every attempt, the workhorse running back found enough gas Read More…

High School Football: Tallmadge at Cloverleaf

WESTFIELD TWP. — The numbers told the story. At halftime Friday, the Cloverleaf football had managed 8 yards of offense and three first downs, two from penalties. Despite an improved second half, the winless Colts fell to Tallmadge 41-6 in Suburban League action. The Blue Devils (6-3, 3-3) stopped a three-game losing streak. “We struggled Read More…

High School Football: Highland at Green

GREEN — The 2014 season is becoming all about second chances for the Highland football team, and its 35-14 victory over Green on Friday night might be a microcosm. The Hornets (7-2, 5-1) have won five games in a row after a self-described disappointing 2-2 start. “We wanted to finish 6-0 from our 2-2 start, Read More…

High School Football: Medina at Mayfield

MAYFIELD — It’s been a difficult football season in terms of wins and losses for Medina. There are a couple points of consolation for coach Dan Sutherland and the Bees, however, and those traits emerged again in Medina’s 42-16 loss to powerhouse Mayfield on Friday night. “It’s been the case all season,” Sutherland said after Read More…

Emphasis on game changes Cameron’s role

  Brian Dulik The Gazette BEREA — Browns tight end Jordan Cameron’s statistics are eye-popping, just as they were last season. The reason his numbers are notable, however, is very different. Cameron has played a miniscule role in Cleveland’s new-look offense, managing just 10 receptions for 210 yards through six games. One year ago, the Read More…

Browns run defense continues to struggle, as coaches, players continue to look for solutions

Denard Robinson, Ishmaa'ily Kitchen

BEREA — The Browns have had a lot of awful run defenses since 1999. The current edition fits right in. Through six games, the Browns rank last in the NFL with 155.5 rushing yards allowed per game. If the season ended at that number, it would be the most allowed by the Browns since 2000 Read More…
