High School athletes have to have plenty of resilience to find success. Such was the case for the Port Clinton Redskins on Friday night as they steamrolled Vermilion, 41-0.
The win came one week after a difficult loss at Edison, and evened Port Clinton’s record in the Sandusky Bay Conference Bay Division at 1-1.
It was a very balanced offensive show for the Redskins as they ran the ball well and Cam Gillum had a good night passing. Gillum connected on 19 of 25 passes for more than 200 yards.
Meanwhile, Dagan Meyers led the ground attack with 148 yards on 13 carries and four rushing touchdowns. His longest run was 68 yards. Three different receivers caught at least five Gillum throws. Demetrious Skoufas hauled in six passes, while Adam Thorbahn and Jacob Weldon each grabbed five passes.
The Redskins hope they are peaking at just the right time, as they host Willard this Friday. The Crimson Streaks lost in a shootout with Edison, 56-49.
