Glenville football hangs on to beat Solon, 15-14 (cleveland)
SOLON, Ohio – Trailing Glenville by one point with just three seconds left on the clock, Solon lined up to attempt a 33-yard field goal. A game that, at times, had a playoff feel to it, would come down to one final play.
Glenville seniors Marshon Lattimore and Marcelys Jones came blaring through the center of the Solon line as senior kicker Keon Hemerlein sent the ball toward the uprights. Lattimore and Jones caught a piece of the ball, knocking it backwards and securing a 15-14 victory for the Tarblooders.
“I just made a play,” Lattimore said. “They told me to rush and I knew I was open in the middle. I just left it up to God to block the field goal.”
The victory was the first for the Tarblooders, ranked No. 5 in the cleveland.com Top 25, since coach Ted Ginn Sr., returned to the sideline this year. A bout with pancreatic cancer forced him to miss last season.
High school football: St. V-M 35, Walsh Jesuit 20: Parris Campbell scores three touchdowns to guide Irish (ohio)
CUYAHOGA FALLS: Walsh Jesuit was in comeback mode, and the home crowd Friday night at Conway Memorial Stadium could sense it.
Parris Campbell Jr. of rival St. Vincent-St. Mary devised another plan.
With the Irish’s lead cut to eight points, Campbell sprinted 99 yards on a kickoff return for a touchdown.
His sideline dash put an end to the momentum and gave the visiting Irish a 35-20 lead with 8:15 to go. That was the final big moment in a game filled with big moments before an overflow crowd.
Campbell had two rushing touchdowns for St. V-M (2-0), too.
“Our skill came through,” St. V-M coach Dan Boarman said. “Parris bailed us out with that kickoff return and made it our game again.”
Before Campbell’s 99-yard sprint, Walsh (0-2) cut the deficit to 28-20 on a 27-yard field goal by senior Mike Knoll with 8:28 remaining.
Thirteen is Lincoln’s lucky number (brooklyn daily)
To most, the number 13 means bad luck. But for the football program at Abraham Lincoln High School, it’s a number you only get to with lots of practice, determination, and no small amount of good luck on the side. It’s the number of games a team will play if its reaches the championship.
Head coach Shawn O’Connor decided to put that number front and center this season after the Railsplitters lost in the semifinals last season — just a year after winning the Public School Athletic League city title at Yankee Stadium.
“Thirteen is a big number for us,” O’Connor said.
That’s why all the Lincoln players, including the junior varsity, are wearing the number 13 on the backs of their practice jerseys as a reminder of where the team wants to be by season’s end. Senior defensive tackle Thomas Holley sees the number as a symbol of the standard they try to live up to everyday.
Andrean works out early kinks to beat West Side (sun times)
MERRILLVILLE — It was a strange week.
The 59ers upset Merrillville last week after a one-day delay and then they had to face West Side, a team that is unique, to say the least.
The Cougars are defensively challenged but they are an offensive dynamo.
They have enough big playmakers — Lonnie Johnson, Jon Vea Johnson and Ramone Atkins —that they can give any team fits. Plus, they play a spread offense.
For the first half of the first quarter it looked like Andrean was still buzzing from its upset of Merrillville last week.
The 59ers couldn’t do much right.
Football | Montini takes to air in win over East St. Louis (chicago tribune)
EAST ST. LOUIS — Montini's quest for a fifth consecutive Class 5A state championship already has taken a different path than the last four.
The Broncos are 2-0 for the first time since 2008 after a 34-6 victory Saturday against East St. Louis in the third game of the City of Champions Classic at East St. Louis High School.
"We've never won state starting 2-0, and I think the kids have talked about finishing undefeated," Montini coach Chris Andriano said. "We keep challenging ourselves to play better competition."
The Broncos couldn't establish their running game in the first half, but with quarterback Alex Wills picking apart the Flyers' defense, they didn't need to. Wills tossed four touchdowns passes — 46, 39, 9 and 16 yards — to four receivers in the first 16-plus minutes of the game after a slow start.
Kahlil Lewin scores game-changing 64-yard touchdown in Erasmus Hall's 21-7 win over Tottenville in PSAL openeR (ny daily news)
Curtis Samuel usually gets all the headlines. He is, after all, an Ohio State commit who’s one of the fastest and most explosive offensive weapons in the nation.
But Samuel’s fellow senior Kahlil Lewin is the rock in the Erasmus Hall backfield. Lewin’s the one who shouldered most of the load a season ago while Samuel was used as a decoy more often than not. Lewin has also been hard on himself coming off what he deemed to be a substandard junior season, which was capped off with the program’s first PSAL city championship.
The pair are tied to each other. They see the most attention and can both break off a huge play at any moment. So on Saturday, in a rematch of last year’s PSAL title game against Tottenville, when Dutchmen coach Danny Landberg made a gutsy call to go for it on fourth-and-2 on his team’s own 36 yard line late in the third quarter with a one-point lead, the normally stout Tottenville defense had to stay honest.
Lewin took the ball to the right on a sweep, and not only picked up the first down, but flew all the way down the right sideline for a 64-yard game-changing score that gave the Dutchmen a seven-point lead, which ultimately led to a 21-7 win over the Pirates at Sid Luckman Field in Brooklyn.
Abraham Lincoln beats host Curtis, 42-6, as running back Antoine Holloman, Jr. scores three long touchdowns (ny daily news)
In any line of work, it’s the one who can finish the deal that usually garners the praise. And Lincoln running back Antoine Holloman Jr. - after ripping off a long run last season, only to be caught from behind at the 1-yard line - had earned a reputation for not being able to close the deal.
That thought spurred Holloman Jr. through a busy off-season spent strengthening his legs, and on Saturday he put to bed the notion that he can’t finish long runs, rushing for three touchdowns on sprints of 34, 47 and 67 yards in a 42-6 win over host Curtis.
By the time Holloman crossed the goal line on each of his runs, there wasn’t a defender fender in site.
Second-year quarterback Javon Moore was nearly as impressive, tossing three touchdown passes for the Railsplitters.
The game was also the first start for 6-4, 300-pound defensive tackle Thomas Holley, the top-rated player in New York, who batted down three passes.
Freshman QB prospect Danny Clark: 'If I get an Ohio State offer, that would be the end of my recruiting process’ (cleveland)
Massillon (Ohio) Washington quarterback Danny Clark was one of the more high profile prospects on the sidelines prior to No. 3 Ohio State’s 42-7 win over San Diego State on Saturday.
A freshman prospect in the 2017 class, Clark has been regarded as one of the brightest young signal callers in high school football. Despite being so early in his high school career, Clark has received heavy interest from programs such as Ohio State, Arkansas, Michigan State and others.
