Ohio Game of the Week
Trotwood-Madison 59, Sidney 21 – Reserve running back Rondric Bogan ran for 202 yards and three touchdowns as the Rams topped the Yellow Jackets in a game between a Trotwood-Madison team that has been one of the best in the Greater Western Ohio Conference in recent years and another that would like to be able to say that this season (Sidney).
Bogan had a 95-yard touchdown run and Roland Walder returned the opening kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown as TMHS opened up a 34-0 lead.
The Rams finished the night with 261 yards rushing, which pleased head coach Jeff Graham.
“We’re an I-formation, downhill running team,” the former Ohio State wide receiver told the Dayton Daily News. “We look for guys who really step up. It’s special how we dominate on the offensive line.”
Walder finished with 11 tackles and a sack for the Rams, who improved to 5-1 while Sidney fell to 4-2.
