Region 8 Preview

Keep An Eye On

*Cleveland Collinwod (0-10): Second-year head coach Greg Wheeler Jr. says the Railroaders are in the midst of a “massive rebuilding effort.” Collinwood played several young players last season and will be junior-laden this year. Numbers are up (40 players last year after just 21 in 2011) and so are expectations. “Morale is up. Participation is up,” Wheeler said. “The 2013 season should yield positive results and progress. Our 2012 team was a team that was filled with very young and inexperienced players. Most of our players should have been playing JV due to their age and class, but they got a year of varsity football under their belt and they will be much more improved this upcoming season. Our weakness should become our strength this season.” Keep an eye on seniors QB/DB Jo’Vaughn Scott (6-0, 170), RB/LB Jeff Flach (6-0, 180) and OL/DL D’Angelo Williams (6-1, 240), junior OL/DL Cameron Jinnings (6-3, 312) and sophomore OL/DL Coreyaun Robinson (6-2, 315).

*Clyde (6-4): The Fliers have a new head coach in alumnus Ryan Carter who is also the school’s head varsity basketball coach.

*Lodi Cloverleaf (3-7): The Colts return one of the sate’s most versatile players in senior RB/DB/KR/P Devin Cunningham (6-0, 205). Cunningham ran for 1,227 yards and 14 TDs last year. He also caught seven TD passes, had five INTs, averaged 39 yards on 28 punts and returned two kicks for TDs. Cunningham’s 23 total TDs and four receiving TDs in a game were school records.

*Mansfield Madison (10-2, Region 6 semifinalist): The Rams lost to eventual state champ Toledo Central Catholic and must replace school single-game and single-season rushing record-holder Kale Huss. Four additional all-district players graduated.

*Maumee (6-4): The Panthers have a new head coach n Marc Gibson who went 70-22 in eight years at Clyde.

*Sandusky Perkins (10-2, Region 10 semifinalist): The Pirates and head coach Jason Zeigler have to replace their QB (22 TD passes) and top two rushers (29 TDs), but they do bring back an outstanding senior WR/DB in Dale Irby (6-2, 180) who caught 40 passes for 640 yards and 11 TDs last year. He also had 42 tackles and 17 pass break-ups. Look for the Perkins ground game to feature senior RBs Tony Didion (5-11, 190/306 yards, six TDs) and David Doster (6-2, 190/245 yards, five TDs). On defense, Didion anchors the unit at LB (88 tackles). Senior DL Chase Green (6-5, 210/69 tackles) is a good one.
