Future Spartans drive toward titles

Last weekend future Spartans Jon Reschke of Brother Rice, Drake Harris of Grand Rapids Christian and Dennis Finley and Deon Drake of Cass Etch were able to help their teams win a state championship. This weekend Shane Jones of Archbishop Moeller High School and Damion Terry and Delton Williams of Erie cathedral Prep home to take a step toward that goal.

The 4-star prospect has had an outstanding season for the Crusaders. Archbishop Moeller is currently 11-3 on the season and has played what could easily be argued as the toughest schedule in the nation this year. Besides playing Ohio powers St Edwards, St. Xavier, Colerain and Elder, they have played out of state powers Grand Rapid Christian (Drake Harris), Baltimore Gillman, Louisville Trinity and Indianapolis Cathedral.

Jones has been a stalwart for Moeller and earlier this week he was not only named All-Ohio Division 1, but was selected Defensive Player of the year in Ohio for that Division.

Moeller will meet an undefeated Toledo Whitmer High School (14-0) team that is currently ranked #1 by most media outlets in Ohio. However, Whitmer has not played the level of competition that Moeller has. The championship game will be played in Canton, Ohio Saturday on Saturday night.

Terry and Williams will continue their quest for a state title this weekend when they face West Allegheny High School in the Class 3A quarterfinals. The game will be played Friday night in Erie at Veterans Memorial Stadium at 7PM.

Terry and Williams have both had outstanding senior season. Terry has re-written the record books by throwing for 2860-yards and 43 touchdowns while lead the Ramblers to a 12-0 record. Terry has completed an impressive 68% of his passes and has added 457-yards and 9 touchdowns on the ground.

Williams has been a standout on both sides of the ball for Cathedral and is viewed as the heart and soul of the squad. His leadership on defense and special teams has been invaluable. As a senior, Williams has rushed for 550 yards and 12 touchdowns and caught 48 passes for 660 yards and 9 touchdowns. In addition, he also has 3 punt returns, 2 interception returns and 1 fumble return for touchdowns.

So far this season only 1 team has been able to slow the prolific passing attack of Cathedral Prep down and that is General McLane High School who Cathedral defeated twice this year, 47-0 and 48-14. In those games Williams rushed for 270-yards on 16 carries and scored 7 touchdowns. Defending the Ramblers is a matter of picking your poison.
