Week 7 Top Performers

By Gee Dowlen, 10/05/23, 6:15PM EDT


A look at last week's standouts in Central Ohio

Braydon Alford (5’8 WR/Butler/2024): Before committing to Butler University on Sunday, Alford filled up the stat sheet once again with 202 all-purpose yards, which included five catches for 68 yards.

Dylan Armentrout (5’9 HB/Bloom-Carroll/2024): Armentrout became Bloom-Carroll’s all time leading rusher as he reached 3,916 yards for his career. In a dominant win over Logan Elm, the Army commit rushed for 255 yards and three touchdowns. Armentrout’s record will continue to soar as he closes in on 4,000 yards with three regular season games to go.

Austin Buescher (6’3 QB/West Jefferson/2026): West Jefferson’s Austin Buescher has been lights out all season. The sophomore quarterback and son of head coach Shawn has thrown for over 2,000 yards this season and leads an offense that averages 43 points per game. Against an unbeaten West Liberty-Salem, Beuscher threw for 396 yards and seven touchdowns.

Levi Davis (5’11 QB/Olentangy Orange/2026): Davis is great at handling pressure in the pocket. With his track skills, his ability to escape and take off down the field is dangerous, and it torched Dublin Coffman last Friday. Davis ran for 137 yards and three touchdowns, and completed 67% of his passes for 132 yards through the air. Davis recently picked up his second Division I offer from University of South Florida.

Ethan Grunkemeyer (6’3 QB/Olentangy/2024): Grunkemeyer and Olentangy made quick work of Thomas Worthington last Friday. Grunkemeyer threw for 203 yards on just 15 pass attempts in the first half, connecting with tight end Gavin Grover for a 30-yard score as well. Olentangy bounced back with a 52-7 win at home. 

Diore Hubbard (5’11 HB/Gahanna Lincoln/2024): Hubbard bulldozed his way to a gritty win over New Albany with 21 carries, 252 rushing yards, and three touchdowns. Hubbard’s explosiveness was well on display as he took the first play from scrimmage 80 yards for a touchdown, running through a defender before taking it down the sideline for six points.

Cameron Jewell (6’0 HB/Jonathan Alder/2024): Jewell’s 369 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on 26 carries can’t go overstated. His performance is one of the best we’ll see from a running back all year. Jewell spent four quarters exploding through holes and providing big plays for Jonathan Alder and always seemed to have an answer for the offense on the other sideline. Jewell also leads the state in rushing with 1,646 yards and has 28 total tocuhdowns on the year.

Zach Jones (6’1 ATH/London/2024): Jones put together an incredible performance in a shootout win over Jonathan Alder. On 22 carries, he rushed for 248 yards and five touchdowns. Enough to pick a narrow win and remain unbeaten. Jones and his offensive line, who provided some great lead blocking for Jones and others throughout the night, were able to put together 57 points in the win. 

Austin Koslow (5’10 WR/Delaware Hayes/2024): Koslow is a master at finding ways to get open and create big play opportunities for himself. The Delaware Hayes senior is closing in on back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons, and his nine-catch game that included an 86-yard kick return for a touchdown was just the latest example of dominance on the field every week.

Andrew Leonard (5’10 QB/Olentangy Liberty/2025): Leonard’s game winning touchdown pass in overtime was the perfect punctuation to a night that included 219 yards and a completion percentage of 70 percent.  

Jake Lowman (6’4 QB/Delaware Hayes/2024): The Delaware Hayes quarterback was locked in for a huge win over Westerville South. Lowman completed 65 percent of his passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns.

Jace Nincehelser (5’11 S/Groveport Madison/2024): Nincehelser is a defensive player that must be accounted for before every play. If not, he’ll cause problems for an offense. Last Friday, Nincehelser recorded double-digit tackles and forced a fumble that resulted in the only touchdown in the game. Groveport Madison’s defense held Lancaster to just three points.

Tavien St. Clair (6’4 QB/Bellefontaine/2025): Star junior quarterback St. Clair led the Bellefontaine offense as he was responsible for 35 of the Chieftains’ 42 points. He threw for 250 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 71 yards and another score.

Garrett Stover (6’0 LB, S/Big Walnut/2024): Stover broke his thumb early in last week’s contest against Worthington Kilbourne, but that wasn't enough to slow down the Ohio State-commit, who tallied nine tackles in the first half.

West Jefferson receivers (Mason Book and Cameron Pearson/2024): All seven touchdowns and 323 of Buescher’s yards went to the senior duo of Mason Book and Cameron Pearson. A ridiculous amount of production from the two receivers. Book led the team in receptions with 10, while Pearson led in receiving yards with 180. Pearson would also grab five touchdowns on the night while Book had two.
