Region 10 Preview

Keep An Eye On

*Bellbrook (5-5): The Golden Eagles are looking to snap an eight-year playoff drought. Bellbrook returns junior QB/LB Alex Fryman (5-11, 190) who was first team All-SWBL last year. Other key returners are senior DL Nathan Coffey (6-5, 230), junior DB Sam Martin (5-11, 165) and junior DB Michael Orbash (5-9, 160).

*Carroll (2-7): The Patriots return two All-GCL players in seniors Chris Adams (OL, 6-4, 280) and Cary Sullivan (RB/LB, 5-10, 205). After that the experience is limited. Carroll opens with three of four on the road, including a trip to Springfield Shawnee in Week 3. That’s after hosting Beavercreek Week 2.

*Celina (7-3): The Bulldogs return a trio of key seniors in WR Braelen bader (5-11, 175), LB Quinn Giesige (6-1, 190) and OL Alex Giesige (6-1, 185).

*Greenville (1-9): The Green Wave could surprise some people this season. Senior RB/DB Ryan Eldridge (6-0, 180) returns after rushing for 651 yards and six TDs and registering 56 tackles. The LB corps of senior Ryan Drew (6-3, 235) and junior Bryce Jenkinson (6-1, 220) is a good one. Drew led the team in tackles last year (104) and Jenkinson owns an offer from Toledo. Other key players are senior OL/DL Kyle Bruner (6-2, 255), senior DB Zach Comer (6-0, 165/43 tackles, three INTs) and sophomore QB Clay Guillozet (6-2, 165/775 yards passing, seven TDs).

*Oxford Talawanda (1-9): Junior RB Maurice Thomas (6-1, 160/1,303 yards, 15 TDs) and senior LB Dakota Byrd (6-0, 200) return after earning first team All-SWOC honors last year.

*Springfield Shawnee (8-4, Region 12 semifinalist): The Braves are coming off a historic run that produced a D-III state finals appearance in 2011 and a win over Alter last season. There are holes to fill. Senior LB/RB Jalen Nelson ran for 483 yards and eight TDs and made 84 tackles last year. Seniors Jeff Van Zant (22 tackles) and Clay Phillips (60 tackles) add depth on D.

*Wapakoneta (7-3): The Redskins are coming off the best three-year run (23-7 in regular season) in program history under veteran head coach Doug Frye. “We will be a young team this season with not much depth in our senior class,” Frye said. “Our program has improved and should help us to be successful. Our kids have learned to compete and work hard.” Key returners are senior LB Zach Schmerge (6-2, 230/first team All-WBL), junior OL Blake Pfenning (6-5, 290) and junior DL Thomas Schoenlien (6-3, 240/HM All-WBL). The Redskins will have a sizeable OL.

*Wilmington (5-5): The Hurricane return three key seniors at the skill positions. RB Zach Day (5-9, 165) will again lead the offense after rushing for 1,222 yards and 19 TDs last year. He lost just one fumble. QB Cody McCune (6-4, 204/915 passing yards, three TDs) returns as does leading WR Adrian Young (5-10, 175/332 yards). Senior P Grant Massie (6-0, 190/38.3 average) is a good one. LBs Evan Hickey (sr.) and Garret Scott (jr.) lead the defense.
