Rocky River faces Garringer

GAME WEEK 7

By Andrew Stark

Who: Garinger (0-6) at Rocky River (1-5)

When: 7 p.m.

Last Meeting: Rocky River won, 45-6, on October 2, 2014

Key Players: Rocky River: quarterback Tyshawn Carter, running backs Elijah Henry, Justice Styron and Nygle Farmer, receiver/defensive back Kendall Lewis, receiver Johari Alexander, lineman Bryson Adams, defensive back Tyrell Robinson, linebacker Larry Blanton; Garinger; running back/defensive back Jorden Freeman, defensive back Jalen Grudy, quarterback Matt Douglas, receivers Jorge Fundora and Isaiah Black, linebackers Lance Gibbs and Delvin Clement, linemen Jackie Jones and Marquel Coleman, running back Derrick Yoko

The Keys: The Ravens badly need a win, and in the always-tough Southwestern 4A Garinger is as close to a sure bet as there is.

The Wildcats were carved up last week and offer little resistance on either side of the ball, so the Ravens should be able to get an easy win this week.

Rocky River:  The Ravens got in a big hole last week and only a late touchdown made the 24-10 loss to Myers Park look respectable.  […]

Rocky River faces Myers Park

GAME WEEK 6

By Andrew Stark

Who: Rocky River (1-4) at Myers Park (3-2)

When: 7 pm

Last Meeting: Rocky River won, 28-14, on Sept. 26, 2014

Key Players: Rocky River: quarterback Tyshawn Carter, running backs Elijah Henry, Justice Styron and Nygle Farmer, receiver/defensive back Kendall Lewis, receiver Johari Alexander, lineman Bryson Adams, defensive back Tyrell Robinson, linebacker Larry Blanton; Myers Park: quarterback Jack Davidson, receiver Jason Monastra and Brandon Adams, linebacker Ben Norris, Noah Smith and Cooper Hearn, defensive backs Kevin Alford and Tim Willis, linemen Anton O’Brien and Corey Mobely, running backs Brandon Caldwell and Antario Dubose

The Keys: Myers Park is one play away from being 4-1 after a tough and well-played 14-7 overtime loss unbeaten South Meck, but they bounced back from that with a 31-24 win over Sun Valley last week. […]

Rocky River faces North Meck

GAME WEEK 5

By Andrew Stark

Who: Rocky River (1-3) at North Meck (3-1)

When: 7 pm

Last Meeting: This is the first meeting

Key Players: Rocky River: quarterback Tyshawn Carter, running backs Elijah Henry, Justice Styron and Nygle Farmer, receiver/defensive back Kendall Lewis, receiver Johari Alexander, lineman Bryson Adams, defensive back Tyrell Robinson, linebacker Larry Blanton; North Meck: quarterback Kendall Coles, running back Emmanuel Wilson, receivers De’Montrez Burroughs and Dalon Tucker, linemen Chris Moore, Preston Ellison and Keon Cezar, defensive backs Nyree Hardy and Amaur Mason

The Keys: This is a battle of teams headed in opposite directions. Behind a strong senior class, North Meck is in the midst of its best season in years. Their 3-1 start has been fueled by a strong defense and the play of quarterback Kendall Coles, do-everything receiver/defensive back De’Montrez Burroughs and the emergence of sophomore running back Emmanuel Wilson, who is going to be a special player. The Ravens got throttled by Charlotte Catholic last week and aside from a late score had little to no offense. Quarterback Tyshawn Carter is a bona fide star, but he’s going to need help if Rocky River is to earn this win. […]

Rocky River: Game Week 3

Who: Rocky River (0-2) hosts Sun Valley (1-1)

When: 7 p.m.

Last Meeting: Rocky River won, 21-14, on September 5, 2014

Key Players: Rocky River: quarterback Tyshawn Carter, running backs Elijah Henry, Justice Styron and Nygle Farmer, receiver/defensive back Kendall Lewis, receiver Johari Alexander, lineman Bryson Adams, defensive back Tyrell Robinson, linebacker Larry Blanton; Sun Valley: quarterback Sam Howell, running backs Fabrice Funderburke PJ Lotharp, defensive backs CJ Maddox and Jeremiah Miller, linebackers Cameron Timberlake and Thomas Mobley, linemen Michael Head, Austin Matthews and Steven Tousa.

The Keys: This has become a growing rivalry game as the two teams have met each of the previous two seasons in a Week 3 match-up. The Ravens are having trouble controlling the line of scrimmage and came up just short last week against Berry. Sun Valley is putting points on the board in bunches, as the Spartans are averaging 44 points a game. The Ravens defense must come to play if they want to get into the win column, but Sun Valley has had its own struggles defensively, especially against the run, so it could turn into a shootout. […]
