Keith wenning, now in the cfl, just didn't have enough snaps but man he had as great of an Arm and threw the deep ball better than anyone I saw in ha

The schools that I've followed from my kids alumni to coaching to friends on staffs. The players who have left an impression on me was greg baker RB springboro holds all their rushing records as best can recall maybe 6'1 185 give or take 5, which was a big highschool RB in the '80's always ran hard and had a deceptive stride, went to Kentucky. Then Alter went back and forth but these 2 was as good as it gets ol nick mangold from top to bottom a football player a team player osu and jets. Chris Borland RB/lb 5'11 210-220 range great fire great nose for the ball under rated athlete as fast lateral as straight ahead, Wisconsin retired after a few NFL seasons concussion concerns . Ridge Reed from carlisle Holds all their Rushing and scoring records, 6'0 I could never tell if he was 210 or 225 from game to game the most elusive bigger back I've seen in a while, great instincts. I thought he was the best between the tackles runner I had ever seen in high school. Good balance, good speed, very quick he's at Eastern Ky.

Greg Baker RB springboro
Nick Mangold Line Alter
Chris Borland RB/LB Alter
Ridge Reed RB Carlisle

Dominique Brown...state champ QB

There are soooo many more but these guys come to mind right away.
An endless parade of awesome backs

For the old guys pre merger ...

Forest Park HS:

Brian Mercer....RB everytime he got the ball I thought he could go all the way
Carlton Gray....DB won national player of the year awards I think
Nick Smith.......LB went to Notre Dame I think...him and Gray led state semi final team.

Greenhills HS

Cedric McDonald....total stud LB/Oline and led team to playoffs
Melvin Taylor, Kevin Shepherd, Keith Watkins broke all the school passing/receiving records and led team to state semifinals.
Leroy Williams....would love to see what is TD ratio was per times touching the ball....fastest player I ever saw.....state AAA 400 meter champ too
Brandon Miree did a lot for Colerain football and may not have realized it!

BJ Askew was a pure joy to watch. While primarily a running back that made some amazing runs, he was also used sparingly as a speed rush defensive end.

I was under the impression that BJ was supposed to go to Winton Woods for high school but moved/transferred knowing that Miree was in the backfield already.

He was a very unselfish teammate too! and yes Keith didn't get enough snaps but Cory Klenke was good as well and that's unfortunate for Keith. I would have liked to see Cory play football at Miami instead of baseball.

Football is football for sure..... but the passing and receiving of today is wild.... Qb's & rec of the past stats dim by today's standards but it isn't necessary ability as much as style of play.. It is tough to play good defense in this age.... and rule changes have seriously effected the style of play... my main point being that while stats may not match up the old time players are still top dogs!!..

I disagree with that last statement. CK BEST sport was baseball, no doubt. I never saw a kid work so hard in my life. Threw him a ton of bp. He leveled off late in his hs career in both sports. He almost seemed like he lost his flexibility, or fluidness, almost like his body got too tight without flexibility training. I noticed it in his fielding, hitting, and throwing of the football. Hindsight if he would have been WR and Keith QB in that last season...but who knows tuKA was tough. CK one was one, if not the, most complete athletes to play for CW and was such a great, great kid.

It's touhj to explain, you just had to watch him a lot in the two sports to really pinpoint it and likely nothing could have been done to correct it if indeed that was it.


That wasn't a shot at the coaches. CK just lead the team to a title and who knew that Keith could do what he did. CK earned the spot and QB is just not a position you swap guys often especially when one was very good

Agreed. I watched him when he was with the Grand Lake Mariners and It seemed like he was struggling. I think Reed knew what he was doing but Its hard to bench a quarterback who just won you a state championship.

Lima had a QB in the early 90's who was a stud, too. I think he started 3 or 4 years, but I can't remember his name. I think he went on to play in the MAC but I could be wrong, I know he gave the Middies fits for several years.

Maybe....
But I think you are overlooking ALL of the Murphy, Tompkins and Pierce boys who played since the 1950s

That family has played an intergal part on all of Mogadore's State Championships (dating back to the 1st one in 1954)
Without them there would be NO Mogadore football

Have to disagree, even though my Dad's friend was a top choice. I have to go with the legendary George "Puck" Burgwin, who tore holes in every defense he faced. He played in a era in high school when they actually noted in the Massilon Independent of the day as the Stubbers colored back. Imagine the abuse he took when they ever caught him. His stats were amazing, playing against the best the state had.

Differences between positions make it tough to compare, but Kyle Slater is the best high school football player I've ever seen. He was effortless.

Agreed. Slater was very good but it is hard for me to say he is the best because of the line he ran behind. Having said that he was on my short list that I mentioned.

For Saint Ignatius, I'm going with Eric Haddad. So many to choose from, but Haddad to me was the best Saint Ignatius RB I've ever seen. Tim McVey is a close second on that RB list. On defense, John Kerr. He played like he was possessed. Those are my top players on offense and defense, just in my opinion.

So YOU are getting better with each passing year!

Athens - Joe Burrow. Has little to do with status as OSU backup. He was an absolute stud in HS.

Bremen (Fairfield Union) - Ike Kelley.

Bloom-Carroll - Dave Cotner.

Pickerington - Jack Neal (old Pickerington, not the current OCC behemoth!)

Fisher Catholic - Don Eaton & Tom Eaton Honorable mention: Greg Romano.

For Alter, without a doubt had to be Nick Mangold. Got an opportunity to see him play in the backyard battle a number of years ago and he was a man among boys.

For Hartley, these guys might be a little less known but John Eramo was a two sport star in football and wrestling. Maybe not the most dominant player of all time there but certainly the best I got to see before my kids graduated.

Greatest Ohio High School football player of all time? I'm not sure i could accurately answer that question but you've at least got to consider the great Roger Staubach. Would love to hear about any other greats that graduated from an Ohio high school.
