2021 Game Summary: Mason- Playoff Edition

Volume: 4  Issue: 6

Written by: Coach Matt Tyla

As our Indians took the field last Friday night on a rainy, gloomy night at Alumni Stadium, the tension was palpable as the post-season had finally arrived! Win or go home…Nothing left to say. Led by a defense that continues improve and is becoming one of the best in the area, along with a dominant run game on offense, our Indians defeated Mason 28-21 in the 1st round of the OHSAA Division One Playoffs.


The defense has steadily improved as the season as progressed and the work done by the coaches and players is starting to pay dividends. This unit is beginning to understand the selflessness, intensity and urgency required to compete and dominate at this level. Led by junior’s James Thomas (HUGE 4th down stop) Josh Maupin (End of game sack) Aamir Rogers (constant pressure) and senior Jonell Lattimore (immovable force) up front, the defensive line is becoming a force for us. Whether it be shutting down the run game or applying pressure in passing situations, this group is becoming one of the best around! The linebackers have been consistent all year and once again they showed up when we needed them. Junior LB Matthew Humbarger (giant fourth down stop) and Senior Co-Captain Quentin Gehm were all over the field and provide the “juice’ that this group needs. In the backend, senior DB Rais Fataki and Junior Isaiah Glover had the wide receiver’s on “lockdown” the entire night, holding the Comets to under 100 yards through the air. The ability for multiple players to come in and make meaningful contributions is a testament to the work the players and coaches are putting in!


As the offense continues to evolve, it has been a goal to find explosive plays. Explosive plays are defined as any offensive play that gains at least 20 yards. Boy, did we find them on Friday Night! Led by Junior RB Jordan Jackson (15 carries, 270 yds, 3 TD’s) the offense had 4 scoring plays of over 50 yards! Senior WR Christian Jackson (1 TD) got things started with a beautiful pass and run for a 56-yard TD! Junior APB (All Purpose Back) Ki’Arran Love continued to be the swiss army knife of this unit and is becoming a true triple threat with his ability to run it, catch it and block it! The offense must continue to improve, avoid turnovers and costly penalties and become more consistent. We are beginning to do that at just the right time!


Our Indians take on Moeller next Friday, November 5th at Norwood Stadium. Get your tickets through the OHSAA Website. We need The TRIBE to show up and show out Friday Night. Your support and the energy you provide is real and we FEEL it! Let’s Go!!!
