Ohio State commit Jaelen Gill, a five-star running back from Westerville South, has agreed to give Eleven Warriors exclusive access into his senior season with the Wildcats.

He'll join us every Friday with a notebook entry sharing everything from his thoughts on his play to who he's recruiting on behalf of the Buckeyes.

Gill's latest entry comes just hours before Westerville South's crosstown rivalry game against Westerville North. He won't play, however, as he's being held out for precautionary reasons after he reaggravated a hamstring injury  last weekend.

We didn't get the win against Liberty. 

We came out on fire with an interception and then they caught up and took over. It was 22-14 at the half. We made a stop coming out of halftime. 

I tweaked my strained hamstring going out of bounds around the 25-hard line. I wound up sitting out the rest of the game and we lost with a final score of 34-14. 

I never lost much power with the strain, even initially a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to go back in the game but the trainers wanted me to sit the rest of the game out. 

I've been rehabbing all week with ice, compression, stimulatuon and cold laser with the hopes of playing in our rivalry game against Westerville North. 

I found out Thursday that the consensus between doctor, trainer and coaches is that I sit out, since we play Westerville Central next Thursday night.  Disappointed is an understatement! Especially since I feel like I can play, but I get it.

Went to the Maryland game and had a great time as always. That targeting call was ridiculous! The fans booed for a long time. Every questionable call Maryland had, the crowd booed.

I was able to catch up with Marcus Williamson and Brendon White.

Ohio State has a big game against Nebraska in Lincoln this week. I'm sure the atmosphere will be crazy!

This school year is flying by. We're already close to being finished with the first quarter and I'm hoping to close it out strong.

We had our track and field record board updated and I was added with the rest of my 4x100-meter relay team for breaking the school record with a time of 41.72. It was great to see my name up there and to be recognized for something other than football. It's an honor to be on that board with so many great athletes.

Go Cats! Go Bucks!
