MIDDLETOWN MIDDIES Division I, Region 4 Head Coach: Troy Everhart (10-2 @ Middletown, one year, 90-43, overall, 12 years) 2011 Record: 10-2, 6-1
Overview: Middletown is in the most prosperous era ever in school history. The Middies have won 10 games in each of the past three seasons. Now the team will focus on winning the elusive Regional title. With the talent that they return that goal is attainable, but the effort it will take to get their will be monumental.
It all begins with star quarterback Jalin Marshall, the 2011 TriStateFootball.com Cincinnati Offensive Player of the Year. The Ohio State commit has done it all, running for 3,338 yards and amassing 4,929 yards of total offense while accounting for 58 touchdowns during his career. Marshall will have plenty of help behind him in 2012. Running back William Peters looks to finally put it all together for a great senior campaign. Newcomer Y’vonte Glover has head coach Troy Everhart beaming about his options out of the backfield. The speedy Lance Johnson and big tight end Chance Sorrell give the team quality receivers in the passing game. Up front Clayton McDonald will be called upon to guide a young group of linemen.
The linebackers headline the marquee for the Middies’ defense. Junior Brad Carr mans the middle. He will be flanked by the young and gifted Kyle Junior and De’Angelo Clark. Newbies to the varsity level, Cole Rowe and Jordan Thomas, are poised to bring immediate contributions. Getting key stops against quality opponents is the only thing from keeping Middletown from being good to great in 2012. Zach Green appears to be a weapon that Middletown hasn’t had in the kicking game in quite some time.
