The final week of the regular season is over ladies and gentlemen! Despite a little controversy, the playoff matchups are set and the teams are ready to start the second season. Week 10 was a big one for a few teams, and here are some guys who came up big for their teams while their backs were against the wall.
Corey Jones, Sr., QB, Beachwood-
With his team needing a win to have a chance at the playoffs and passing hard to come by in a driving rain, the senior quarterback decided to do the work with his legs. Despite a lackluster first half in which he had only 11 yards on nine carries, Jones exploded for 97 yards on 14 carries in the second half as Beachwood beat West Geuaga 22-7. Beachwood should be an exciting team to watch the next couple years with coach Ryan Williams getting his program running.
Anthony Canganelli, Jr., RB/WR, Mayfield-
Last Friday was a night that passing was nearly impossible due to the conditions. Mayfield needed to find a way to score and move the ball without going to the air – enter Canganelli. The junior put in a couple of games worth of work Friday, getting 28 carries for a Kareem Hunt-like 235 yards. He also chipped in a 91-yard kickoff return as Mayfield got the win they needed to sneak in the playoffs over the Pioneers of Elyria, 31-21. The Wildcats have drawn the #1 St. Edward Eagles for the first round.
Ryan Fallon, Sr., QB, St. Edward-
This may be the first time a guy has made the list two weeks in a row. The biggest reason is his play, but I also put more weight on what kids do in a rivalry game. Fallon was fantastic as his Eagles won the “Holy War” versus the St. Ignatius Wildcats. The senior accounted for 261 of the Eagles 303 total yards, including two 4th quarter touchdowns to bring St. Ed’s all the way back for the win and the number one seed in the Division I playoffs.
Casey Klicman, Sr., QB, Willoughby South-
Contrary to popular belief, the Rebels do have other guys on the team besides the presumed Mr. Football Kareem Hunt. The senior QB is pretty good in his own right as a dual threat. He has been solid all year and was again this past week as he passed for 248 yards and two touchdowns as Willoughby South ran away from Eastlake North 44-7. The Rebels are poised to make a deep playoff run behind their senior backfield.
Damon Washington, Sr., RB, Kirtland-
Washington is a guy who hasn’t gotten a whole lot of recognition this year despite putting up some big numbers for the defending state champs. Washington finished the year in style, picking up 128 yards and three TDs on just 12 carries as Kirtland dismantled Independence 63-28. Washington will be looking to throw the team on his back and carry them to a second straight state title.
High School Hysteria will continue through the playoffs. Our featured game for Friday, Nov. 2nd is New Philadelphia at Aurora. Coverage will start at 7pm.
