Future Bearcats Ohio Playoff Bound

Several future Bearcats in the state of Ohio have finished their regular season and earned trips to the OHSAA playoffs. Here is a look at those players and what might be ahead.

The Ohio High School regular season is over and now the second season is ready to begin with playoff games kicking off on Friday and Saturday night. Here is a look at some future Bearcats and where they'll be on the field.

Clint Shepherd vs. Jibreel Black (Friday 7:30 p.m.) Wyoming High School

The biggest match-up of future Bearcats will come when Eaton High School and Clint Shepherd will battle the newest Bearcat verbal pledge Jibreel Black of Wyoming High School.

This will be a good game for Bearcat fans to catch as there is a very good chance that Shepherd and Black could be having plenty of one-on-one battles on the night.

Wyoming also has a couple of other players to watch with the main one being junior quarterback Kyle Seyfried who has shown a strong arm and good athletic ability for the Bearcats to take notice.

Eric Lefeld - Coldwater vs. Hamilton Badin (Friday 7:30 p.m.) Coldwater High School

Lefeld is one of the early Bearcat pledges and while he's gong under the radar his team is known for being a program to watch when the playoffs come around. Badin may be undermanned, but with junior quarterback Patrick Coyne this could become a shootout.

Dominique Brown - Winton Woods vs. Ross (Friday 7:30 p.m.) Winton Woods High School

In Division Two, Region 8 action Dominique Brown of Winton Woods will look to get his team into the second round in a very tough bracket. With Trotwood-Madison, Turpin and Tecumseh in the region Winton Woods will be a team many feel has a chance to advance. Brown has a lot of athletes around him but may be one of the best overall athletes in Ohio.

While Friday night is a good chance to catch some future Bearcats on the field, Saturday night will find the Bearcats playing at home at 8:00 p.m. and a few future Bearcats in action as well.

Kevin Schloemer & Alex Smith – Lakota West vs. Anderson (Saturday 7:00 p.m.) Anderson High School

While Kevin Schloemer is a solid verbal commitment, Alex Smith (soft verbal) has continued to keep his options open. Lakota West is loaded with talent, but Anderson is a program with solid players on both sides of the ball and the experience of playing playoff football having won the Division Two title just two seasons ago and finishing runner-up last season.

Luke Massa – St. Xavier vs. Centerville (Saturday 7:00 p.m.) St. Xavier High School

Massa and his St. Xavier teammates are coming off a big victory over Moeller to capture the GCL title and Centerville could prove to be a tough match-up.
