The results are in for the 2003 OhioPrepScene.com Southwest Division I Best of the Best. These are the players that were the best in Division I in Southwest Ohio.
Quarterback: Jarrell Williams: Cincinnati Princeton High School - Jarrell was the spark that made the Princeton Vikings run. Without him Its hard to say what type of season they may have had. This kid is a great athlete and won over some other top players like Elder QB Rob Florian, Northmont QB Tyler Horner and Kurt Shoemaker of Anderson.
Running back: Bradley Glatthaar: Cincinnati Elder High School - Bradley should change his name to Steady! You know he's going to give you a steady performance week in - week out. This kid is so underrated as a college prospect. While he may not play RB at the next level, I see enough athletic ability to play at the next level. What sets Bradley apart from other running backs is his vision, he reads his holes and follows his line to make positive yards come easy.
Wide Receiver: Ro Grigsby: Clayton Northmont High School - Ro is a receiver you can count on getting open and making the catch when needed. He wins out over several other great receivers in the SW part of the state like Greg Orton and Johnny Long.
Offensive line: Ryan Stanchek: Cincinnati La Salle High School - While many people are talking about Person from Xenia, I feel this kid has the greatest up sides I have seen in several years. With great feet and work ethic his future is as bright as he wants it to be. But don't be fooled, many top OL are from the SW. With other linemen like Corey McKenna of Elder, Javon Potter of Wayne, Eric Larrimer of Centerville to name of few.
Kicker: (TIE) Brandon Yingling: Mason High School - Brandon helped the Comets improve and make the playoffs this season. He showed up each week and gave Mason a chance to win any close game they may enter. Drew Eby: Huber Heights Wayne - Drew was a big reason the Warriors had a great season in 2003. He made himself known each and every week with his kicking and made this choice the hardest one of all. While I try not to have ties, sometimes it's the right thing to do.
