...who had Ohio's best team performance last past week?
MaxPreps and JJHuddle are proud to announce that they will again sponsor a team of the week during the 2017-18 school year.
How does it work?
Each week during the season (regular and post), there will be a fan-generated contest to nominate weekly winners. Each winning team (one boys and one girls) will receive awards (bracelets and certificates). Football, girls and boys soccer, boys and girls golf, field hockey, girls tennis, boys and girls cross country and volleyball teams are eligible for the award in the fall.
To nominate a team, email information to Eric Frantz at email@example.com. Please include the team, gender and why they are worthy. Winners will be selected from the nominations and announced every Thursday.
Week 1 Ohio HS Teams of the WeekBOYS: Fairmont (Kettering) Football
The Firebirds scored a 13-12 win over neighborhood parochial rival Alter for their first win in the season-opening series since 2004. Fairmont scored the go-ahead touchdown on an 8-yard run by Herbert Burroughs with 25 seconds left in the third quarter. Alter just missed a potential game-winning 41-yard field with less than 1:30 remaining. The Firebirds had 55 offensive plays and ran the ball 54 times (for 193 yards). They were 4-of-5 on fourth down attempts. Fairmont had three backs with 50 yards rushing or more – Braden Miller
(51 yards), Jesse Deglow
(56 yards and a touchdown) and David Stamer
(55 yards). Burroughs ended with 31 yards.
