Extra Points Doom Flyers, Loses Title Game To Kirtland

Division VI State Championship Final Score: Kirtland 22 Marion Local 20


story thanks to OHSAA

(12-5-15) - COLUMBUS, Ohio – Kirtland knocked off four-time defending state champion Maria Stein Marion Local 22-20 in the 2015 OHSAA Division VI state football championship game to earn its third state title in school history on Saturday morning at Ohio Stadium.

In what was a tale of two halves, Kirtland Head Coach Tiger LaVerde commended his players for their belief, expressing his appreciation after the game.

“I’m happy for these guys,” LaVerde said. “These guys will remember this forever and that’s what it’s about. They had a great experience. They’re going to be lifelong friends. They’ll get to cherish this for a long time.”

Early on, however, it was Marion Local that jumped out to a quick lead. Marion Local brought a balanced run-pass attack led by running back Aaron Nietfeld and quarterback Cole Griesdorn.

Nietfeld got the Flyers (13-2) on the board with a 5-yard touchdown run at the 7:09 mark in the first quarter. Four minutes later, Griesdorn connected with receiver Matt Kahlig for a 14-yard touchdown pass to give Marion Local a 13-0 halftime lead.

A persistent second-half rushing attack from Kirtland kept the Hornets in contention. Kirtland responded early in the third quarter, marching 75 yards on 12 plays to finish the drive with a 1-yard touchdown run by running back Joey Bates.

After recovering a Marion Local fumble on its own 3-yard line, Kirtland (14-1) took its first lead, capping off a 97-yard drive with quarterback Owen Lewis taking it in himself from 2 yards out. The Hornets extended the lead to nine with 2:08 left in the fourth quarter after a 57-yard touchdown run from Bates (34 carries, 206 yards rushing, 2 touchdowns) and two-point conversion from Lewis to Evan Madden.

Marion Local responded, as Griesdorn hooked up with Hunter Wilker for an 11-yard touchdown reception to finish off a five-play, 53-yard drive. But the Flyers’ onside kick went out of bounds and Kirtland secured the win.

With the victory, Kirtland’s record over the last five seasons extends to 72-3 with two of those loss coming in state championship games. Today marked Kirtland’s fifth straight appearance in a state championship game and the 25th playoff game in the last five years.

Last team to beat a MAC team in a football state championship game before Kirtland today was Kirtland in 2011 when it beat Coldwater.

(12-4-15) - COLUMBUS, Ohio – Fort Recovery defeated Mogadore 33-14 in the OHSAA Division VII state championship to capture the school’s first state title, doing so in record-breaking fashion in front of an audience of 7,957 at Ohio Stadium.

After a winless 2013 season, Fort Recovery coach Brent Niekamp commended his players and all those involved for what has been a remarkable turnaround.

“We went through a lot of years being sort of cellar dwellers in our conference, which as you guys know is a really tough league,” he said. “To make this jump, it seemed like it happened overnight, but it didn’t. This was five, six, seven years in the making.

“There were a lot of guys that have played in the seasons where our seasons didn’t look as good that laid the foundation for what these guys were able to do. We know how proud our community is. What you saw in the stands tonight, that was our whole town. Everybody was here. It’s really special.”

After making its first playoff appearance in 2014, Fort Recovery showcased the program’s continued improvement in the third Division VII championship game in OHSAA history, starting and finishing with a record-setting passing game.

Indians quarterback Caleb Martin established the pace early, capitalizing on a Mogadore turnover with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Darien Sheffer for the game’s first score. After a Mogadore punt on the ensuing possession, Fort Recovery responded again on a six-play drive that ended with a 10-yard pass to Tanner Koch for the Indians’ second score.

Mogadore answered with an eight-play, 60-yard drive that ended on a 17-yard pass from quarterback Zeddie Pollack to Jarad Dunn to halve the deficit at 14-7.

Fort Recovery bounced back quickly as Martin connected with Brayden Schoen for a 75-yard touchdown pass — the longest such pass in the three years of the Division VII championship game — upping Recovery’s advantage to 20-7. Just over six minutes later, it was a Martin-Koch connection — the second of the game — this time in the form of an 8-yard touchdown pass, bringing the score to 27-7 going into the halftime break.

With the conclusion of the first half, Martin completed at least two passes to five different receivers, going 17-for-26 for 277 passing yards and four touchdowns.

After a scoreless third quarter, Fort Recovery began the fourth with a one-play, seven-second scoring drive as Martin connected with Wes Wenning on a 30-yard touchdown reception. Mogadore doubled its score thanks to a 6-yard touchdown run by Austin Williams, but it proved too little, too late as Fort Recovery held Mogadore to 14 points and 306 total yards.

Martin finished 25-of-39 for 385 passing yards and five passing touchdowns. With that performance, Martin set the record for most passing yards, most pass completions (and most passes attempted in a Division VII state championship game.

Fort Recovery’s Tanner Koch tied a Division VII state championship record for most touchdown receptions in a game (2), while Recovery’s Wenning and Schoen surpassed the previous record for most receiving yards (119) in a Division VII state championship game with 121 and 125, respectively.

Fort Recovery takes 7-0 lead

3rd and long? No big deal for Fort Recovery, who struck first in the Div. VII state title game on a nice connection between Caleb Martin and Darien Sheffer.

Cavaliers Do It Again, Win Fourth Straight State Title

Courtesty Coldwater AD Eric Goodwin


story thanks to OHSAA

(12-4-15) - COLUMBUS, Ohio — Coldwater defeated Canton Central Catholic 35-18 to take home the 2015 OHSAA Division V football state championship Friday at Ohio Stadium.

The game was a rematch of the 2014 Division V state championship in which Coldwater won, 62-21.

After winning 4 straight state championship games, what the difference between them? Coldwater head coach Chip Otten sums it up best

Posted by SportsTime Ohio on Friday, December 4, 2015

“I’m really proud of this group of seniors,” Coldwater head coach Chip Otten said. “It’s cool to see those guys finish with a victory in their last football game. They’re enjoying it. It’s been fun. We have great community support that will travel everywhere and enjoy it.”

With the victory, Coldwater’s senior class of 2016 is the fourth in OHSAA history to win four or more straight state championships. It is the sixth all-time Cavalier state football title.

Cavaliers senior Jack Hemmelgarn finished 18-of-27 with 287 yards and two touchdowns. His favorite target, senior receiver Aaron Harlamert, finished with seven receptions for 142 yards and two touchdowns. Senior Kraig Schoenherr paced the Coldwater rushing attack with 73 yards on 20 carries while also adding two touchdowns. The Cavalier defense also was strong, forcing Canton Central Catholic into four turnovers, with two fumbles and two interceptions.

Canton Central Catholic (11-4) was making its second consecutive state championship appearance and finished as state-runner up for the second straight year. The Crusaders were led by senior running back Justin Ditty with 67 yards and one touchdown on 13 carries. Senior quarterback Dan Platek added 118 yards passing and one touchdown.

Coldwater (15-0) achieved numerous impressive marks with its victory. Coldwater’s four-consecutive state championships are tied for the second-most consecutive OHSAA football state titles. The Cavaliers have won 20 consecutive playoff games, and now claim the fifth highest OHSAA football playoff winning percentage (.813, 65-15 all-time playoff record). Coldwater’s state title gives the Midwest Athletic Conference 115 total state championships, and two other MAC schools — Fort Recovery and Maria Stein Marion Local — will play for football state championships this weekend.

The attendance for the game was 7,200.

You have to see this! Coldwater pulls off a perfect hook and ladder play in the 2nd quarter of the Division V OHSAA state football championship game.

Kenton Transfer Breaks Missouri Passing Record

"'Walk to the Sideline' Trick Play Works Perfectly."

Sophomore Alex Huston of Glendale (Springfield, Mo.), who transfered from Coach Mike Mauk's former school in Ohio (Kenton), set the Missouri state record for passing yards in a season after throwing for 538 yards in a 60-41 win over Camdenton last week. He has 4,638 yards on the season, passing Eric Czerniewski of Montgomery County (Montgomery City, Mo.), who threw for 4,407 yards in 2005.

Huston also tied the state record for touchdowns in a single game with nine, matching the mark set last year by Glendale quarterback Alex Austin. Luke Montgomery had 10 catches for 236 yards and 4 touchdowns in the win.

Glendale enters the playoffs with a 3-6 record and will play (Oct 23rd) against Springfield Central. Meanwhile his former team in Ohio is suffering through it's first losing season since Mauk left for Missouri.

Celina Native Moosbrugger Named SDSU Deputy Director of Athletics

June 18, 2015 - SAN DIEGO - Celina Alum Bob Moosbrugger has been named Deputy Director of Athletics / Chief Operating Officer at San Diego State, as announced Thursday by Director of Athletics Jim Sterk.

Moosbrugger, who has worked in the department for more than 14 years covering two stints, has served as the associate athletic director for development since 2007. In his expanded role, Moosbrugger will now oversee academics, facility development, business, and have expanded involvement with the football and men's basketball programs, all while continuing to manage fundraising.

"I am pleased to announce that Bob will have an expanded role in our department," Sterk said. "Bob has done a terrific job of continuing to increase our fundraising to record levels. His efforts, along with those of his staff, have helped us provide student-athletes with the resources to compete at a national level."

Since returning to San Diego State eight years ago, Moosbrugger has been in charge of the department's record fundraising efforts. He has implemented capital improvement projects, including the construction of the Jeff Jacobs JAM Center (basketball practice facility), Willens Tennis Locker Rooms and the SDSU Softball Stadium clubhouse. He has also raised funds for facility improvements to the Fowler Athletics Center as well as for renovations to the locker rooms for men's basketball, women's basketball and baseball.

In addition, Moosbrugger currently oversees the softball and swimming and diving programs.

"I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve as Deputy Director of Athletics and continue building San Diego State as a national program, said Moosbrugger. "This promotion is thanks to the support of my family, our donors, the student-athletes, staff, coaches and University administration who share the same vision for Aztec Athletics. I am passionate about San Diego State and excited to continue the incredible success of the past five years under Jim Sterk's leadership."

Moosbrugger began his career at Ball State in Muncie, Ind., from 1994 to 1996, as a graduate assistant for the ticket office and marketing department. He then took an assistant ticket manager position at Fresno State from June 1996 to January 1999. Moosbrugger was promoted to athletics ticket manager in 1999 where he remained until March 2000. His responsibilities included the direction of all ticket sales operations for more than 100 athletic and special events planned annually for the Bulldogs.

Moosbrugger came to San Diego State in March 2000 to work as the assistant director for the Aztec Athletic Foundation. He was involved in all operations of the development office.

From February 2006 until September 2007, Moosbrugger served as director of business development at the San Diego International Sports Council. In his position, he helped bring numerous high-profile events to the city.

Moosbrugger is a 1994 graduate of Bowling Green with a degree in sports management. He earned two letters in baseball for the Falcons, winning the 1991 Don Woods Award as the team's freshman of the year. He and his wife, Esther, have two sons, Andrew and Vincent, and reside in San Diego.

Moosbrugger replaces John David Wicker, who accepted the senior associate athletic director position at Georgia Tech.

"The success the San Diego State athletics department has enjoyed is due to great student-athletes, tremendous coaches and hard-working professionals like John David," Sterk said. "I am grateful for his tireless efforts the past four years and wish him, his wife Rachel and their daughter nothing but the best."
