NEW PHILADELPHIA Senior Justin Ward made a name for himself as a linebacker last year.
He did nothing to hurt that reputation this season, but he has added a dimension as a strong running threat for the Quakers as well.
DOVER Mason Mamarella is the focal point of the Dover High School offense.
That’s stating the obvious with what he has done on the gridiron this season.
