    Brian caught 27 passes and scored two times during his junior season.

    He is considering FSU, Central Fla, LSU, Oklahoma, Georgia, tOSU, scUM and Tenn (all have offered). It seems like tOSU is a long shot.

    tOSU has offered

    Nice find 86.

    Kid seems like a long shot but I'd love to see him in scarlet and gray.

    I've never seen so many top rated recruits coming from Mainland. I played LG and DE there in the eighties and we sucked. Bad. We were 1-29 in my three years there.

    Now its Jon Garner, Avery Atkins, Brian Ellis, Buster Davis. Damn where was that talent when I was in school? Not to mention Vince Carter, George McCloud, Mike Polite all in the NBA.

    Should I call Coach Maronto? Maronto coached Speilman in Massillon. He is very familiar with Ohio State football.

    This from the Orlando Sentinel:

    With this in mind, I'm guessing the day wasn't real bright for Ellis either. :(

    That blows. Go Bucs!

    With Seabreeze holding a precarious 10-6 lead, Saffen converted a fourth-and-15 with a 17-yard floater to Dominic Mungen, and then flipped a screen pass that Ben Robinson turned into a 20-yard gain to set up the decisive score. With six minutes, five seconds remaining, Saffen lofted a 35-yard touchdown pass over a Mainland defender into Mungen's grasp in the end zone.

    Let's see if my math's correct:

    35-yard TD pass
    20-yard screen pass
    17-yard "floater"

    That's 72 yards. So, they were on their own 28 yard line when they had their 4th-and-15 and only a 10-6 lead. They either totally trusted their defense to bail them out if they failed to convert the 4th down, or their punter really sucks.

    Mainland has three Div1A recruits on their offense (Jon Garner, Brian Ellis and Avery Atkins) and one of them is also a DB (Avery Atkins). If Seabreeze trusted their defense to stop those guys at their own 28, I wanna know who they have on defense.
