Columbian beats Shelby 83-82 in OT, RB Miller scores 10 TDs


Tiffin Columbian and Shelby staged one of Ohio’s highest scoring games ever Friday.

The final? Columbian 83, Shelby 82 in OT.

Individually, Columbian senior RB Cliff Miller scored 10 TDs (tied state record with nine rushing) and 62 total points. Miller scored the game-winning 2-point conversion in OT. His 62 points is tied for third most in Ohio history and is the most by an Ohio player since Howard “Tick” Hamilton scored nine TDs and eight PATs for 62 points against Vandalia Butler on November 10, 1939. Miller’s 10 TDs ranks second all-time behind Erastus “Tunk” Simmons who scored 12 TDs when Medina played Spencer in 1923. Miller ran for 516 yards (16 off the state record) on 25 carries.

Shelby freshman QB Brennan Armstrong threw for 306 yards and five TDs and ran for 214 yards and four TDs.

    The record you reference is points scored by one team — Medina beat Spencer 165-0 on Oct. 5, 1923, which is still the state record for points scored by a team in a game. The OHSAA does not have a category for combined points scored in a game.
