  GRANGER TWP. — The fat lady sang at halftime Friday. It was too hot to stick around. Grant Wallace and Nick Corvo each rushed for more than 100 yards and the defense dominated all but four minutes, leading Highland to a 44-6 non-league victory over Buckeye on a muggy 89-degree night. The defending Division Read More…

WESTFIELD TWP. — Keystone knows praise will come for standout wide receiver C.J. Conrad. The defense knows it will start getting more attention if it keeps doing what it’s done through two games this season. What the Wildcats wanted to talk about Friday after a 25-8 win over Cloverleaf was something that hasn’t happened in Read More…

High School Football: Brunswick at Padua

PARMA — Running back Mike Bekeny was feeling a little under the weather leading up to the Brunswick football team’s non-league game with Padua — enough so that the plan was to limit his carries and let junior Marc Davis start and handle the bulk of the work. Davis went down with an elbow injury Read More…

High School Football: Wadsworth at Wooster

Richard Doyle The Gazette WOOSTER — Advantage, Wadsworth. The formula rarely changes over the years. The Grizzlies play to their strength with a strong running game, while Wooster tries to rely on big plays by its talented athletes.

The postgame beverages for Gazette freelance writer Chad Grant were well deserved last week. Ever the high school football fanatic (as well as late-night catfisherman, but I digress), Grant was on an emotional high after witnessing the highest combined score involving a Medina County team since 1923 — Black River’s 72-57 win at Western Reserve.

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…

GRANGER TWP. — If the Highland football team wins 13 games again this season, it will be playing for the Division II state championship.

High School Football: Buckeye at Revere

Revere, on the other hand, was hoping to get its program back to the level of dominance it had from 1989-2005, when it qualified for the playoffs seven times. The Minutemen Read More…
