YOUNGSTOWN, OH (WYTV)-It was a high school football season that excited from start to finish. As we head to 2015, here is a look back at the best of the best from 2014.
Number 10: It was week 1 when Niles’ Corey Hayes took a jet sweep 68-yards for a touchdown against Girard.
Number 9: Hubbard’s Isaiah Scott used a slant route to spring him free for a 59-yard touchdown catch against Niles. Isaiah had the recap. “touchdown pass, Cam Ingram to Isaiah Scott, I ain’t playing boy.”
Number 8: It was arguably the best hit of the season, Hickory’s Andrew Pryts lays out a Corry defender over the middle that breaks up the pass.
Number 7: It is another from Pryts, this time on the offensive end, beating double-coverage down the middle against Sharon, making the catch with a little help from his head.
Number 6: We head to Sharon where the Tigers were down 7-0 against Warren with a few seconds left in the first half. Andrew Tomko avoided a sack and lofted one into the end zone where Ziyon Strickland came down with the prayer and put 6 on the board for Sharon.
Number 5: You saw it on MyYTV, time ticking down in the first half but Antwan Harris doesn’t care, releases a bomb before getting hit that finds Joey Harrington for a touchdown as the clock winds to zero.
Number 4: History in South Range. Joe Alessi breaks multiple tackles going 69-yards for the touchdown and in the process, sets a new all-time rushing record for the Raiders.
Number 3: It was the regional semifinals where Ursuline and Liberty met, tied up until Vito Penza jumped over a defender going 78-yards to help the Irish get the win.
Number 2: Western Reserve driving and looking to score when John Clegg rolled to his right and fired one deep into the end zone where Wyatt Larimer made an unbelievable one-handed catch.
Number 1: It was a play that didn’t even count. A holding call brought this Lynn Bowden run of nearly 100-yards back against Ursuline. It is that good that despite the penalty, Bowden earns our Top Play of 2014.
