When he won the Gatorade Player of the Year award in Ohio last year, Joe Burrow was just emerging into the national spotlight. Now, a year later and on the eve of the 2014 state championship game, Burrow has added another major award to his already impressive trophy case.

In Columbus tomorrow night, in the stadium he'll call home after he signs with Ohio State in February, Burrow will take on Toledo Central Catholic in the Division III state title game, and that's what he's focused on right now, not an individual award.
"It's an honor," Burrow told Eleven Warriors. "I won't really reflect on it until after tomorrow."
Burrow enters his high school finale with just under 11,000 yards passing in his prestigious high school career and 180 career touchdowns accounted for. He's scored 63 touchdowns during his senior season and amassed 4,581 total yards. He's thrown only one interception on the year and just 16 in 932 passing attempts during a high school career to remember.
