Gus Ragland (6'3/200) led his Moeller squad to a 55-52 win over Mentor to claim Moeller's second consecutive State Championship in Ohio's largest classification. Ragland dominated Mentor's defense by air and by land.

He opened the game throwing long to his favorite target Isaiah Gentry, and he helped finish off Mentor with his legs as he ran for touchdowns as well. In today's spread offenses where the quarterback is as likely to be the leading rusher as leading passer, Ragland was ideal for Moeller's Championship run.

Ragland has excellent patience running the option, and he's got a quick release with an arm that's strong enough to hit the out route with enough touch to loft a deep pattern over a defensive back. Ragland is a tough inside runner capable of breaking a tackle as well as running away from defensive backs in the secondary.

Ragland currently holds a D1AA offer from Robert Morris, and he has the talent to play on the D1 level as well. He certainly showed as much against Mentor in last week's State Championship victory. Moeller is ranked No. 10 in the Scout Top 50.
