Lakota’s Franks all-Ohioan in D-V

Lakota coach Mike Lento has raved about his talented tailback Trevor Franks all season long, as he put up video game numbers this year.

Franks got the recognition Monday evening when the all-Ohio teams for Division IV and V were released. Franks, a senior, was named to the second-team offense. He is the first Raider to be an all-Ohioan.

Franks rushed for a whopping 2,009 yards and 24 touchdowns in 10 games, with a few of those filling in as a wildcat QB due to injuries.

The pinnacle of his season came on the road against Fremont St. Joe where he ran for 386 yards and six TDs.

He was the lone area representative on the all-Ohio team in Division V, but three Clyde Fliers and two Bellevue Redmen dotted the list in Division IV.

For Clyde, the all-Ohio selections are an honor, but the Fliers are a bit busy preparing for the state title Saturday against Licking Valley.

Lineman Frank Fultz was listed on the second-team offense.

Fultz, a 211-pound guard, paved the way for Clyde’s backs to rush for over 2,000 yards and over 1,500 yards passing.

Bellevue senior linebacker Jack Howey was on the second-team defense. Howey made 82 tackles, including 17 for a loss and he picked of a pass. He was a third-team selection last season.

Howey’s teammate and first-year receiver Caleb Marshall was a third-team offense selection.

Marshall, who is 6-foot-6, caught 35 passes for 754 yards and 13 TDs.

The last two Fliers were Remington Norman and Nick Webb, both on the third-team defense.

Norman made 74 tackles with 10 sacks on the defensive line, while Webb had 48.5 tackles and a pair of picks in the regular season.
