Lehman Catholic has had great success the last two years making a
regional final (2007) and a state semifinal (last season). Despite the
loss of 13 seniors, expectations are high for the Cavaliers who should again be among the region and state’s best – again.
Sidney Lehman Catholic (11-2)
* Players to Watch – S David Spearman (6-1, 180, Sr.); RB Kaleb Goins (5-10, 190, Jr.); OT/DT Ryan Jacob (6-1, 230, Sr.); OG Matt Pulfer (6-2, 220, Jr.)
* Outlook – The Cavaliers have had great success the last two years making a regional final (2007) and a state semifinal (last season). Despite the loss of 13 seniors, expectations are high again.
Spearman is a defensive standout (77 tackles, five interceptions) and a two-time all-Ohioan. Jacob will anchor the defensive line.
On offense, the Cavs will give team’s a big dose of Goins who is one of D-VI’s top running backs (1,409 yards, 20 TDs). Goins also adds support defensively from his linebacker spot.
Jacob (who head coach Richard Roll called the team’s “top lineman”) and Pulfer (a 2-year starter) anchor the offensive line.
The Cavaliers have added Jonathan Alder, Delphos Jefferson and Elmwood to the schedule. As always, a season-opening whooper against Anna looms.
Said Roll: “If the progression continues, we should have a successful season.”
