Never Forget 31-0


Northwest 21,
Carrollton 6

Senior fullback Scott Weber rushed for 200 yards and one touchdown to give Northwest an NBC victory.

Carrollton (2-2, 0-1) scored first on a 9-yard pass from senior quarterback Matt Bryan to senior wide receiver Nick Castelucci. The Warriors were shut out the rest of the game.

The Indians (3-1, 1-0) tied the score on Weber's 3-yard run. Senior tight end John Bertsch's 67-yard touchdown reception from senior quarterback C.J. Law put Northwest up for good.

Never seen him play and that was because he was suspended from Northwest at the time. Folks in Canal Fulton rave about him. He has baggage issues. Probably not the kind of recruit Tressel wants.

this is not true, scott weber was not the running back that was supended from northwest, that would be cody butzer and you did see scott weber run the ball, but as a freshman with 2 more years of strength and speed he is a force to be reconded with! (coming from experience)

Louisville hosts Northwest in battle of NBC heavyweights

Thursday, October 6, 2005 <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD>By JOE FROLLO JR.

Repository Ray Stewart Louisville’s offensive line is a tough, physical group that has helped the Leopards amass more than 2,000 yards of offense already this year.


Paul Farrah never had seen anything like it in 20 years as a player and coach. Down 21-0 last week with six minutes to play, Farrah’s Louisville Leopards rallied to beat Canton South in overtime. The Louisville sideline erupted. The perfect season was intact.
“That’s one of the greatest comebacks in Louisville history,” Farrah said of the 27-21 victory. “Our kids never quit. Our coaching staff never quit. We’ll always be able to say we were a part of it.”
By the next morning, it was just a great memory. South was in the past. Friday night’s high school football showdown with Northwest only matters now.
Another 2,000 will fill Louisville Stadium as the Leopards (6-0, 3-0) and Northwest (5-1, 3-0) play for sole possession of the Northeastern Buckeye Conference lead. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m.
Northwest head coach Vic Whiting and his team have watched the tape from the South game. He doesn’t have to explain the importance behind what is coming.
In 2001 and 2003, the Indians handed the Leopards their only conference losses. In 2002, Louisville returned the favor.
In each cases, the winner earned at least a share of the league title. This season is shaping up toward the same results.
“We recognize year in and year out, Louisville is the best team in our league,” Whiting said. “Their kids play hard and are dedicated. ... If you are going to be successful, you’ve got to beat Louisville.”
Northwest’s offense starts with senior tailback Scott Weber, a 6-foot-1, 225-pounder averaging 160 yards on 27 carries. He has scored 14 touchdowns.
“When you prepare for Northwest, you have to start with taking Weber away,” Farrah said. “But the problem is that for the last couple of weeks, Northwest has done a good job going away from him. C.J. Law is doing a good job throwing the ball and does a great job with ball fakes.”
Law threw for 210 yards last week in a 42-11 win over Marlington. The senior quarterback is 51-of-94 on the year for 1,036 yards, eight TDs and five interceptions.
Law has got a quartet of receivers, including Weber, but wideouts Ted Robb (21 catches, 370 yards) and Anthony Barkhurst (11, 227) are the main targets. Tight end John Bertsch (9, 249) has come on strong, too.
For Law to be successful, he will need to make quick, correct decision. Louisville’s defense will blitz from anywhere at any time.
“Their defense is very physical and goes so hard on the line,” Whiting said. “That front five comes in and blows up everything in front of them, letting the linebackers clean up. If you spread them out, they believe they can get to your quarterback before he can throw. You may complete a few passes, but in time they are going to hit the quarterback so many times, they’ll win in the end.”
For the Leopards, it starts with QB Drew Kuhn, who threw for 328 yards and four touchdowns, three to senior Bill Poyser, during last week’s comeback. Kuhn has thrown for 939 yards and is just as much a threat to run. He leads the Leopards with 540 rushing yards.
“Our focus on defense is to stop Kuhn, but he’s become such a good distributor,” Whiting said. “He can get the ball to other people who can hurt you.”
Those include tailback Brian Whaley and wideouts Ben Schmucker, Kyle Smith and Poyser. The 6-6 Smith has six TDs on 18 catches.
Speed, experience, toughness, ability. Both sides are loaded.
Come Saturday morning, both teams will be bruised and sore. But one side will have another memory to add to what they hope is a championship season. “This is what high school football is all about,” Farrah said. “Our kids respect them. They respect us. Hopefully, the weather is dry, and the best team wins.” Reach Repository Assistant Sports Editor Joe Frollo Jr. at (330) 580-8564 or e-mail [email protected]

Canton South at Northwest

SITE Smilek Stadium, 7:30 p.m.

RECORDS Canton South 3-4, 1-3; Northwest 5-2, 3-1.

LAST WEEK Canton South 40, Minerva 6; Louisville 14, Northwest 0.

LAST MEETING Northwest won 42-14 last year.
WHAT TO WATCH The Indians look to keep their NBC hopes alive after losing their first conference game. Northwest was held to 106 yards of offense — just 6 on the ground — but still had chances. The Indians had a touchdown pass called back because of a penalty, a fumbled kickoff return just outside the end zone and a fumble inside the Louisville 30. “That’s three opportunities right there,” Northwest head coach Vic Whiting said. “We take advantage of those, it’s a different game.” South is coming off its best game of the season. The Wildcats ran for 278 yards as Devon Torrence ran for three TDs and Devoe Torrence had two. South QB Ronnie May was 10-of-13 for 146 yards, all in the first half. South head coach Elmer Schuetz was pleased, especially on the heels of an overtime loss to NBC leader Louisville. “That loss took a lot out of us,” Schuetz said of the 27-21 final in which the Wildcats led 21-0 in the fourth quarter. “We played pretty well. Not great. But a lot better than we had at times this season.” Schuetz said senior DB Tony Ash is becoming a leader. Ash also plays some running back and returns kicks. Northwest TB Scott Weber needs 28 yards to reach 1,000, while TE John Bertsch is averaging 21.9 yards per catch.

i think that scott weber is an EXCELLENT runningback, who deserves all the credit that he is getting and even more, because he is powerful, fast, good moves, and is a bus! i think he would be a great pick to play fullback infront of chris wells.....troy smith (QB), scott weber (FB), chris wells(HB) ......wow what a lineup....
