Minford (8-3, Region 15 quarterfinalist): The Falcons rebounded from a 4-6 finish to make the playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons. Expectations are high again. Senior OL Jared McCray (6-5, 300) is one of Ohio’s best and has committed to Louisville. He’ll block for a talented tandem of seniors in QB Cody Stapleton (5-11, 178) and FB Austin Carter (5-10, 195). Stapleton threw for 844 yards and ran for 178 en route to accounting for 16 TDs last season, while Carter ran for 807 yards and nine TDs. Carter also had 44 tackles and eight TFL at LB. McCray and Carter were first team All-SOC II. Head coach Brent Daniels is 45-20 in six seasons. Other key contributors will be RB Zach Justice (jr., 5’9, 165), RB Grant Piguet (jr., 5″10, 185), DE Nathan Compton (sr., 5’10, 195), WR Caleb Clark sr., 6’0, 180), DB Jack White (sr., 6’2, 175), LB Levi Jenkins (sr., 5’8, 195), OL Kane Madden )so., 6’3, 310),  OL Austin Mcknight (sr., 5’9, 200) and OL Seth Rickman (sr., 6-0, 225). Big non-league games loom with Grandview Heights, Oak Hill and Portsmouth.

“We have a senior laden club this year and most have been starting since they were sophomores,” Daniels said. “We have good depth in several positions on the offensive side of the ball, but we need to have a couple of younger kids step up on defense.”
