A night to remember

It could be a long time before area high school football fans see performances like the ones they saw from three standout players on Friday night.

Those at the Mentor-St. Igantius game, won by the Cardinals, saw QB Mitch Trubisky and WR Cameron Kavan fill up the stat sheet.

Trubisky was 28-of-44 passing for an whopping 469 yards and three touchdowns. The only downer on this night was the four interceptions he threw. According the Ohio High School Athletic Association records on its Website (, Trubisky's 469 passing yards ranks 34th on the state's single-game mark.

Kavan's night was equally remarkable. The senior caught 14 passes for 283 yards. The only thing he didn't do was catch a touchdown. According to the OHSAA's records, Kavan's 283 receiving yards ranks 10th all-time for a single-game mark.

Trubisky and Kavan received most of the headlines on Friday, but North RB Jordan Morris deserves mention as well. Morris ran for 284 yards on, get this, nine carries and scored four TDs. For those scoring at home, that's a 31.5-yard average for Morris, who ran for over 300 yards in Week 1. The OHSAA doesn't keep yards-per-carry records, but that mark would probably rank right up there.
