High School Football: Medina at Brunswick

8-29 FBAJ21

BRUNSWICK — The Brunswick defense was glad to spend most of the first half on the field Friday against rival Medina because the Blue Devils offense was scoring so quickly. Four touchdown drives that each lasted 75 seconds or less and a momentum-swinging botched trick play by the Bees changed the non-league game for good, Read More…

High School Football: Buckeye at Revere

Richard Doyle The Gazette BATH TWP. — The Buckeye football team was hoping its stars would shine on the first night of the season.

High School Football: Cloverleaf at Northwest

CANAL FULTON — Coming into the season opener Friday at Northwest, Cloverleaf football coach BobLake knew his team was raw on offense.

Devils’ Ficyk has big arm, brain

Football enjoyment isn’t measured in yards for Steven Ficyk. It’s not a game about points, punts and penalties. Instead, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound senior would rather talk about kings, queens, rooks and pawns. A returning starter who led Brunswick to the playoffs last season for the first time since 2009, the senior would rather talk about Read More…

Bees’ Crawley gunning for All-Ohio honor

Every time Ian Crawley wants to take a break, he’s got a bug in his ear telling him to keep going. That bug goes by the name of Chris Arthur, who happens to be one of the assistant coaches for the Medina football team. An accomplished football player during his days with the Bees, Arthur Read More…

Hornets’ Phelps next up at QB

Highland quarterback Blake Phelps isn’t trying to be the next Bruce Kinsey. He’s trying to be the first Blake Phelps.
