Efficient Dru DeShields sets West Branch passing record

West Branch's Dru DeShields passes during a non-conference game against Woodridge at Clinton Heacock Stadium Friday, August 26, 2022.

While this is only his second season as starting quarterback, West Branch senior Dru DeShields has set many school passing marks. After an efficient 17-of-22 (69 percent) in a 49-7 win at Revere, DeShields now ranks first in school history for career completions. Five of those completions during the decisive win went for touchdowns. Normally a dual threat as a runner, DeShields carried the football sparingly but did add a rushing score.

Ramhir Hawkins’ underneath’s execution helped Alliance offense overwhelm Bedford

Alliance's Ramhir Hawkins carries the ball after a catch during their game against Bedford at Kehres Stadium, Friday, September 2, 2022.

Standing only 5-foot-7, Alliance junior wideout Ramhir Hawkins was his team’s go-to pass catcher against speedy Bedford, finishing with eight grabs for 131 yards (16.4 avg). Most of those catches came on underneath routes, including one for a 44-yard touchdown. Hawkins was one of three Aviators who had big offensive statistical performances during Alliance’s second straight decisive win, a 47-20 decision at Mount Union.
