Butler County Backyard Brawl Loaded

The Butler County Backyard Brawl was won by the Middletown Middies 28 – 21 over the Hamilton Big Blue last Friday. Playing in that game for both teams and on both sides of the ball were some very promising Junior and sophomore prospects.



Sophomore QB Caleb Watkins, 6'2', 201 lbs, Caleb had 10 completions on 23 attempts for 183 yards and 3 touchdowns against the Big Blue.  Caleb currently ranks number 2 in the Greater Miami Conference (GMC) to Spencer Ware with 1264 total yards.


Sophomore RB Antonio Banks, 5'10", 200 lbs, Antonio ran for 79 yards on 20 attempts versus the Big Blue.  He also had 3 receptions for 33 yards.


Sophomore DB Jahmi Calhoun, 5'11", 165 lbs, played well versus the Big Blue.  Jahmi needs to add some strength to his frame but is playing very well in a starting role for the Middies.


Sophomore DL Sam Current, 6'2" 208 lbs starts on the defensive line and could grow into a major prospect with time in the weight room.


Junior DB Tony Peters, 6'3" 185lbs, had an interception versus the Big Blue and shows exceptional athletic ability.  Tony also starts for the Middies as a Small Forward on the Basketball team.  Tony currently has 2 interceptions on the season.


Junior WR Allen Roberts, 6'2", 197 lbs, Allen had 2 receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown versus the Big Blue.  For the year he has 23 receptions for 338 yards, 4 touchdowns and 14.7 yards per catch average.


Junior Dajouir Cornnielies, 6'0" 227, currently 2-nd in sacks in the GMC with 8.  Dajouir was very active on the night from his MLB spot for the Middies.





Sophomore DE Darius Gilbert 6'2" 256 lbs, Darius has the frame to add more pounds and muscle. 



Junior DT Donovan Jarrett, 6'3", 287, dubbed "Big Cheese" by Big Blue Coach Harvie Crouch for his size and ever present smile, Donovan already has the size to be a major prospect.


Junior LB DeNicos Allen 6'0", 205 lbs,


Senior Updates:


Dimecus Brown


Hamilton has two players that have been offered by Eastern Kentucky and I am surprised other programs have not taken note.  Marquis Powell is a 6'5", 205 lbs WR with speed and athleticism.  Dimecus Brown is a 6'5", 332 lbs road grader at the Left OT spot.


Middletown WR Phillip Barnett, 6'2", 187 lbs, does not have any offers although several programs continue to stay in contact.  Phillip had 4 receptions for 68 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Middies.  He also leads the GMC in reception yards with 614.


Middletown bookend Offensive Tackles Chip Robinson, 6'6", 351 lbs and Blaec Walker, 6'6", 319 lbs have committed to Bowling Green.
