Region 3 Preview

Keep An Eye On

*Brecksville-Broadview Heights (5-5): Senior WR Timmy Tupa (6-1, 185) is one of the state’s best and holds offers from Penn, Colgate and Notre Dame of Ohio. Tupa caught 69 passes for 1,071 yards and 11 TDs as a junior. The defense is led by senior LBs Colton Czack (6-2, 210/119 tackles) and Troy Lang (5-11, 190/96 tackles, eight TFL).

*Madison (6-4): Senior DB Bo Ransom (5-9, 175) returns after recording 97 tackles, three INTs and two fumble recoveries.

*Maple Heights (4-6): The Mustangs will rely on the senior trio of WR Cliff Garner (6-4, 180), OL Antonio Weatherspoon (6-2, 265) and LB Ronald Smith (6-0, 215).

*Mayfield (6-5, Region 1 quarterfinalist): The Wildcats have holes to fill but senior OL David Khanin (6-2, 280) is a good piece to build around.

*North Olmsted (7-3): The Eagles return some standout lineman in seniors Jeff Rotheram (6-6, 290/Tiffin and Lake Erie offers), Beau Bilinsky (6-3, 27) and Andrew Bukala (6-3, 270). Senior DB Luke Janik (6-1, 187) returns after leading the team in tackles a year ago (108.5).

*Painesville Riverside (7-3): The Beavers will lean on senior QB Maxx Brubaker (6-4, 180) who threw for over 1,500 yards last year.

*Westlake (9-2, Region 6 quarterfinalist): The Demons earned the program’s first playoff berth since 1989 last season. Head coach Mark Campo (22-19 in four years) welcomes back seniors QB Kent Axcell (6-2, 190), DE/TE Adam Sandor (6’1, 215), OL/DL Alex Busser (6’0, 240), OL/DL Quinn Bari (6’1, 260), OL/DL James Bailey (6’0, 240) and WR/CB Emmette Rogers (6’0, 175) and junior RB/LB Mason Makulinski Jr. (6’0, 210). Said Campo: “We must play physical. It’s a street fight mentality. Win your individual battle each play.”

*Willoughby South (10-1, Region 1 quarterfinalist): The Rebels are coming off back-to-back playoff berths but have a ton of holes to fill, including the big one at RB that Kareem Hunt (Toledo) left.
