Solon Comets - Awards/Accolades/Rankings

One of our Solon posters recently sent me a PM, suggesting that I start a thread that listed all honors and awards to Comet teams and athletes. His reasoning was that he liked the idea of having only one place to look for such information, rather than hunting from thread-to-thread.

I agreed. So I'm starting this thread as a repository for weekly rankings by Solon teams; indiviual honors; team honors; scholarship offers, etc.

Let me start by pointing out that Solon was ranked #9 in Ohio in calpreps.com's preseason rankings. The Comets open the season ranked #65 in the nation.

Solon missed out on maxpreps.com's national Top 100. The Comets were one of the "Ten who just missed the cut."

First Offer

Thanks Meta.

As far as offers, it is written that Tres Barksdale, WR (class 2012) has an FBS offer from Ohio U.

Also offers from Bryant & Notre Dame College (OH).

That's all the offers I find at preseason time.

AP Honors Davidson & Schwenke

Associated Press released their 2011 All-Ohio honors today.

Nick Davidson, LB, was named to the 1st Team. The diminutive player joined a prestigious listof Ohio linebackers. This morning I saw his name in a story about players that tOSU is seeking.
Note that the release by A-P this morning also shows Nick as a 3rd team selection. That is not a PD error, it was also printed in another state paper. The Dispatch, Beacon-Journal and Repository did not have the story posted yet. Other city papers only covered their local athletes.

Ryan Schwenke, DB was a 2nd Team selection for the Comets

Solon High Team was 10th in the Final AP Poll for 2011.

Cory Stuart recruited

Cory Stuart, 6'1", 170# WR has received an offer from the University of Dayton Flyers.

Good to see UD keeping tabs on the Comet talent.

IN THE NAVY - Nate Hoff

Just heard Nate Hoff made his commitment to the Naval Academy this past weekend! Excellent choice!

Congratulations to one of Solon's all-time great 4 yr. varsity starting football players!!

Be on the watch out Army, Nate's going to be in your face!!


Any update to Nick Davidson, Ryan Schwenke, Cory Stuart, or Tre Barksdale?? Also heard some DIII interested in Mike Dunn and Patrick Kramer! WOW!!! Wonder what class holds the record for the most atheletic college commitments for Solon.
Let's not forget about Jamie Glesing (basketball - Florida) and MAtt Smoral (baseball - UNC).

Surprise- Tres Barksdale commits to Georgetown

This afternoon it was reported by the PD that Tres Barksdale will play football at Georgetown University.

Georgetown plays football in the Patriot League and it was not readily known that they had offered so Tres must have moved quickly.

Good Luck Tres!

A Number of 2012 Solon College commits?

What a great group of young men.

The Parents, Teachers, and Coaches should all be very proud of Barksdale, Stuart, Schwenke, Hill, Davidson, Kramer, and Dunn who all have more than just interest from several colleges and universities to play football, more importantly attending some great colleges/universities.

Signing Day at Solon High School is Feb 1. at 2pm!

Barksdale - Georgetown
Stuart - verbal commits to Dayton
Schwenke - visiting Dayton, has offers (Academic and/or Athletic) from several DII and DIII teams
Hill - has serious considerations from John Carroll, Ashland, Mercy Hurst, and several others including Hiram, NDCL, and Mount Union
Kramer - Recently visited Mercy Hurst and several DII and DIII
Dunn - Several DIII have shown interest
Stock - Columbia
Hoff - Navy

Has Solon had this many football college commits before?

Congratulations to all the boys and parents!!

Thanks Hurri. That is a nice article. It gives a little insight into his preparation for Switzerland and also some career insight. For out-of-towners, here's the link:

Darian Hicks Offered

Junior DB/WR Darian Hicks is the first from the Class of 2013 to receive a football offer. FBS Boston College of the ACC was reported to have made the offer.

Darian's size is only 5'10" and 172# which is rather small for ACC play so his speed must have been the attraction.

http://www.scoutingohio.com/index.ph...e=darianhicks6

On 02-07-2012 Scouting Ohio reported that Michigan State also made an offer to Darian. Guess the recruit group were in town and saw both Barksdale & Hicks

2012
Anyone know about Tres Barksdale? It was reported two weeks ago that he was offered and gave a verbal acceptance to Georgetown over Ohio U. But last Wed. he did not sign a LOI and all has been quiet.

Anything about Schwenke's plans?

Tres Barksdale to 'walk-on'

Bob Fortuna of the PD reports that Tres will not go to Georgetown but walk-on at Michigan State.

WOW! That's a tough order. Few ever succeed at it. You realize that he cannot practice with the team until fall classes start, i.e. he misses the first camp. Then he might be lucky to run a couple routes in practice. Hard to start a relationship with the team under those circumstances.

But, anythings possible as the salesman said. Good luck Tres. Make it work!

John Glavin, Solon's all-state lineman in 2000 did it @ Miami, and he became a starter. But It's tough. Really hard. You have to want it badly enough to persevere, and keep making your mark. Best of luck to the talented Tres up at East Lansing.

Schwenke heads to Dayton too!

O.K., it's not a roaring river but a nice stream of boys from the football field at Solon to the University of Dayton. The PD today reported that Ryan Schwenke, DB/SS, 6'1", 180# has committed. Ryan was 2nd team All-Ohio, he's a good baseball player and likes snowboarding.

So Schwenke & Cory Stuart from this years recruiting class join Joe Janasek & Jake Voigt on the Flyer roster. They all follow fellow Comets Steve Valentino & Coach Kevin McCoy. Nice trend!

BTW, the two new footballers from Comet-land are not the only to sign. Paige Yaeger, committed to the Women's Track Team. She won All-Ohio Honors last season as a junior in 3 events.

Great highlight video of Ryan. We will miss him @ Safety that is for sure. Best of luck to him and Cory whom we will certainly miss also, at receiver and safety. Fyers gain is our .....GRADUATED.

May he be shifted to safety this upcoming season? Solon lost both. He does have outstanding ability. And speed.

This list is really something for a Solon defensive back. Kim Herring, Steve Rodriguez, Scott Greenberg, Steve Valentino, are just a few of the truly great ball-hawks and cover guys. The past few seasons we have had some very good D-backs, Hicks, Humphrey, both Stuarts, Schwenke, Kresevic, and the list could go back to 1980's if I looked them up. Greg Genovese just popped into my alleged mind.

But Darian's offers are amazing.

Drew Barksdale hears from BC

Boston College is in our area news again as they made an offer to Drew Barksdale, Solon's 6', 170# junior WR.

BC of course was earlier attracted to Solon's DB Darian Hicks and has offered to Ben Gedeon of Hudson and Davon Munger of Shaker, two Comet opponents.

Barksdale's older brother Tres will be a preferred walk-on WR at Michigan State this fall and since some consider Drew as good or better athlete, it is not surprising that BC will be in what will become a hunt by several other programs for a good WR by the time next season is completed.

Kicker Alex Knight

Some new interest in Alex Knight, the Comet placekicker.

A long time ago we learned of a Hiram College offer.

Now Walsh College is interested.
