“Fives” and “chest bumps” to Head Football Coach Jeff Fox and the Nordonia High School football team. Undefeated with 8 victories. Watched them last Friday night.
A combined speed, size, and physicality make this a very good football team. Well-coached and talented. Of course, that all important “believe in yourself” attitude. Fun to watch. One of their best players is injured.
QB/FS Alex Alders (2015) is injured and has not played much. Last year as a junior, I thought that he was the backbone of their team. Excellent free safety prospect. Senior David Murray, listed 6’3-200, played well at QB last Friday. 4 TD passes and 130+ rushing yards.
I watched Denzel Ward (2015) long jump as a sophomore. Fast, explosive, and competitive. Excellent hips. Excellent vertical. Fast. Recovers well. Really like(most of the time) his CB mentality and swagger. Needs to add weight. Going to play for Ohio State University next fall.
Cameron Bell – OT
Nordonia HS – 2015
Senior DE Justin Alexander, listed 6’5-238 is a work in progress, but has tremendous potential. Gets thru junk to make tackles. Fast off the edge. Gets to the QB. Needs to get bigger/stronger, but moves well now. A Michigan State commit.
Senior OT Cameron Bell in 2 and 1/2 years may have made the most improvement of any football player that I have watched over the years. For sure, he is among the top ones. As a sophomore, he had trouble staying a discus circle. As a junior, he looked better on the football field. He was an okay pass blocker. Feet were improved, but needed to be better. This year he has become a better run blocker. Cameron is listed 6’8-330. Improved bender. Feet have improved Not there yet, but, eventually, he will do well at the University of Toledo.
