Aurora Takes DIII Ohio Final
Bellamy, an Ohio State verbal commitment may get overlooked by the average fan, but his ability to clog the middle on defense and make key blocks on offense makes him a player to be reckoned with.
Eastmoor would strike first as Kwesi Sample hit for a 35-yard field goal. After the score it would be a long time before they would place points on the scoreboard.
The Greenmen wouldn't score until the middle of the second quarter, but once they got on the board they looked for more. With 8:39 in the second Steven Yung would pull down a 49-yard pass from Brendan Gallagher giving Aurora a 7-3 advantage they'd never give up.
Eric Schultz would score on a 3-yard run and Dee Brizzalara would score on a 26-yard pass from Gallagher giving the Greenmen a 21-3 advantage.
Eastmoor didn't stop working and with 1:52 left in the third quarter Alex Coleman would score on a 30-yard pass from Malon Johnson. Despite having several drives Aurora was able to stop Eastmoor from seeing the end zone the rest of the game.
Aurora wins their first football state title in schools history 21-10.
Breakdown The Players
Aurora High School
Adam Bellamy: With his recruiting over, Bellamy worked hard to making his senior season his best and the schools best. Bill Green and myself saw Adam in Cleveland in February and liked what we saw. In the future we feel Adam will best be served as an offensive lineman but OSU has told him he'll get a shot along the D-line.
Mitch Knapp: Only a junior Knapp has a frame college coaches can work with. It will be interesting to see if he takes to the combine and camp circuit to show what his skill level is. Long and lean Knapp comes hard on both sides of the ball.
Victor Rodriguez: The senior linebacker has the frame to play middle backer at the next level but must get his grades in order. Tough and hard nosed, Rodriguez may be one of Ohio's lesser known prospects in the Class of 2009.
Alex Coleman: The senior is a play maker but is hurt by his physical size. If he was taller he'd have college coaches at his door.
