Dominique 'Dominates' Ohio Division-II Title
Cincinnati Winton Woods defeated Maple Heights 42-12 to capture the Ohio Division-II state title Friday night at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium in Massillon. Winton Woods was led by do-everything senior quarterback Dominique Brown who tied a state title game record by rushing for four touchdowns. Brown gained 173 yards on the ground and also threw a touchdown pass in leading the Warriors to a convincing win. "I give all the credit to our offensive line tonight," Brown said of his team's performance. "Those guys have been working hard since last summer, both on the field and in the weight room, and they're the reason we have a state title. We wanted to come out and play our best game and I think we did that." Brown, the Division-II Player of the Year, is headed to Cincinnati to play college football, although there has been speculation on what position the 6-foot-3, 215-pound athlete would play for the Bearcats. "I'm a quarterback, and I want to play quarterback in college," he stated. "That's why I chose to commit to Cincinnati because they told me that's where I'm going to play." At Cincinnati Brown will play for Brian Kelly, one of the top coaches in the country. Brown is quite impressed with the Bearcat head coach. "Brian Kelly runs a great system at Cincinnati, and he's one of the best coaches in the entire country," Brown said of his future head coach. "I love that program, and now that I have a state title, I want to see Cincinnati win a BCS championship. Coach Kelly knows how to run a program and he's won at every school he's coached at, so I'm proud to be a Bearcat."
