Who were the players that Bill Greene and Dave Berk felt deserved to make their All-Ohio Championship team? We have the results after the games have been played.



Having spent the weekend in Northeast Ohio watching six championship football games, Scout.com is ready to announce their Ohio All-Championship Team.  We reserve the right to name multiple players at any position.


Defensive Line


Jamel TurnerYoungstown Ursuline High School


Make no mistake on how talented Jamel Turner is as a football player.  While he’s had some up and down games this season, he enjoyed a great championship game and showed why he’s caught the interest of many at the college level.


Aaron Flowe – Eastmoor Academy


Flowe is not a player that is going to get talk when it comes to recruiting but he played a very good game against Aurora.  Only 5-foot-7, 205-pounds the senior took a beating but keep coming.  On the day he posted 5 tackles with two for a loss and one pass break-up.


Adam BellamyAurora High School


Bellamy made both our offensive and defensive All-Championship team with his performance.  On the day he posted 6.5 tackles playing on both sides of the ball.




Scott McVeySt. Ignatius High School


McVey posted one of the greatest championship performances I can remember in recent years.  With 6.5 tackles and 4 of them for a loss McVey has his priorities on straight.  His star is bright and his name will be talked about in the coming months.


Seamus Siefring – St. Ignatius High School


Seamus posted 6 stops with 2 pass break-ups on the night and if not for the performance of McVey would be hearing more about his play.


Jacob Lindsey – Cincinnati Elder High School


Lindsey posted 6.5 tackles in a losing effort but is only a sophomore with great skills.  Will see a lot of interest in several college players


Chris BorlandKettering Alter High School


Borland is the second player to make both the offense and defense All-Championship Team.  On the day the Wisconsin verbal commitment posted 6.5 tackles with a pass breakup.


Jessie Birden – Steubenville High School


Birden gets overlooked but will have time to make a name for himself in the coming seasons.  Only a sophomore Birden lacks the height you’d like to see but is a major playmaker.


Hudson Smith – Hopewell-Loudon High School


Smith is a junior who had an outstanding day in a loss.  For the day he posted 11.5 tackles.


Dylan Coleman – Sylvania Southview High School


Coleman was a key player in the championship game by posting 10.5 tackles with two for a loss as the Cougars won the state title in D-II.


Eric Schultz – Aurora High School


Schultz may not get much talk but he enjoyed a great game helping Aurora win the DIII title.  For the day Schultz posted 8 tackles with a sack and an interception.


Dominique Cole – Youngstown Ursuline High School


Cole may not be as well known as some of his teammates but he’s got game and showed it on Saturday by posting 6.5 tackles with a pass break-up and a half a sack.


Defensive Backs


Cody Byers – Kettering Alter High School


Byers opened some eyes with his performance in the Knights victory over Steubenville.  While some may have posted some bigger numbers it was his overall game that impressed up most.


Dan FoxSt. Ignatius High School


Fox is a great college prospect with a bright future.  While he may not have posted the eye catching numbers in the championship game he did make sure Elder knew who he was before the game had ended.  For the game he posted 3 tackles and an interception.


Pat Hinkel – St. Ignatius High School


The senior Hinkel posted team high numbers of 7.5 tackles and 3 pass break-ups in his final prep game.


Dale PetermanYoungstown Ursuline High School


Talk about closing out your high school career.  Peterman had two interceptions for 84 yards with 44 of them coming on a touchdown that pushed the Irish to the championship.  Look for someone to get a steal with Peterman at the next level.


Jeff Podolsky – Youngstown Ursuline High School


Only a sophomore makes Podolsky a name to watch.  While he lacks the size you’d like to see for the next level we have to keep in mind he could still grow some.  For the game he posted 9 total tackles with a sack.


Jimmy HallSylvania Southview


Hall is a junior to keep an eye on in the next few months as he showed on Friday.  For the game Hall posted 9.5 tackles with a breakup while also pulling down five balls on offense.


Allen GantSylvania Southview


What all did Allen Gant do to get so much attention?  He pulled in a tight-rope touchdown as time expired before halftime for a touchdown.  He pulled down three balls as a receiver for 59 yards and more importantly he posted 5 tackles.


Ronald Tanner – Eastmoor Academy


Only a sophomore, Tanner topped the Warriors with 5.5 tackles on the day.  At 6-foot-1, 170-pounds he’ll have a chance to become a good one in the coming years.



Best College Prospect – Jamel Turner

Best Defensive Prospect Skill – Dan Fox

Best Prospect Underclassman - Allen Gant
