LISBON, OH – The Lisbon Blue Devils basketball team is a unique mesh of freshman talent, hungry juniors, and most of all great senior leadership. The senior class has been compared to a second coaching staff on the floor as they are able to control a game and understand the little things as games progress. One such senior, Blayne Brownfield, has been in this spot before as he was looked upon as a leader last year as well. This season, Brownfield has been able to lead with experience and a stoic calmness throughout the season. Because of that composure, Blayne and the Blue Devils are currently 8-2 overall and 5-0 in EOAC conference play!

Brownfield, currently ten games into his senior season, is someone who prides himself on being able to lead by example on the court. When Lisbon needs a bucket, he is able to get something going for the team. If its a close game, Blayne is always the vocal leader to rally the team and get everyone in the right spots defensively to make a big stop. On the season, Blayne is averaging 22.7 points per game while shooting 46.7% from the field, 40% from behind the arc, and 81% from the free throw line, as well as averaging 7.3 rebounds per game.

Not only does he lead through his game on the court, he is also able to lead in the classroom and in the community. Although Blayne gets a lot of credit for the team’s success, he is always the first to say it is a team effort and build up his teammates instead of take credit for himself. Brownfield has embodied the win first mentality and is not afraid to put in the work to build the team.

YSN’s own, Steve Leslie, had the opportunity to talk with Blayne via video chat this week to talk about his current senior season, how COVID has effected him and this season on the court, what his plans are for after high school, a rapid-fire question session to see what makes Blayne the player and person he is, and so much more!

SEBRING, OH – The Lisbon Blue Devils boys basketball team came into Friday night’s game at Sebring McKinley in familiar territory. Just a year ago, the Blue Devils embarked on the same journey to Sebring to try to win a sectional championship and move onto the Struthers Fieldhouse for a district semifinal match up, that team ended up losing to Sebring. This year, the Blue Devils knew it was a chance at redemption and a chance to once again win a sectional title and move on to the district semis.

From the opening tip, the two squads seemed to be even, with both teams trading buckets and neither breaking free from the other. The Blue Devils took a 14-13 lead into the second quarter, behind Michael Davis’ shooting. The halftime score saw Lisbon maintain their lead by just one point, 26-25. The third quarter was much of the same as the two teams duked it out looking for any edge they could get, as the score remained a one point game going to the fourth, 35-34. The final quarter however, saw the Blue Devils begin to run out of gas as the Trojans kept executing and kept the tempo in their favor, as they would go on a 19-9 run, ending the Lisbon Blue Devils season once again, by a score of 53-44.

The Sebring Trojans were led by Dylan Johnson with 12 points, Jake Hunter with 11 points, and Gabe Lanzer with 10 points.

The Lisbon Blue Devils were led by Michael Davis with 20 points and Blayne Brownfield with 16 points and 6 rebounds. Ryan McCullough added in 4 points and 7 assists.


NORTH JACKSON, OH – The 2019-2020 regular season is officially over for the Lisbon Blue Devils as they traveled up to Jackson Milton to take on the Bluejays. The Blue Devils and the Bluejays both were looking for a win to build some confidence before heading into the playoffs next Tuesday, but it was the Blue Devils that emerged victorious with a 52-41 win.

From the opening tip to the final buzzer, the Lisbon Blue Devils controlled the tempo and handled everything Jackson Milton threw their way. The Blue Devils couldn’t break off a big lead until late in the third quarter. Once Lisbon went up by 10, the Bluejays were never able to regain any momentum or chip away at the Lisbon lead.

The Bluejays were led by Cole Grope with 12 points and Andrew Bouch Jr. with 10 points.

The Blue Devils were led by Ryan McCullough with 19 points and 7 rebounds. Blayne Brownfield added 11 points and 4 rebounds. Nic Mundy finished the night with 11 points and 3 rebounds.

Up next for Lisbon will be the first game of the OHSAA boys state playoffs on Tuesday, February 25th, as the 6th seeded Blue Devils will welcome the 11th seeded Western Reserve Blue Devils to town.


LISBON, OH – The final home game of the 2019-2020 regular season for the Lisbon Blue Devils saw them host the Brookfield Warriors in a non-conference match up. The meeting of these two teams will be the first in well over a decade. Both squads entered the game looking to build some momentum before the state playoffs begin next Tuesday.

Brookfield came out of the opening tip on fire as they connected on two threes but also pounded the ball inside as they took a 17-12 lead into the second quarter. The Blue Devils however matched the Warriors on the offensive end in the second but still trailed, 30-25, at the half. Once the second half got underway, the Warriors continued their offensive attack as they proceeded to outscore Lisbon 20-13 in the quarter. The Blue Devils tried to battle back in the fourth quarter but two thunderous slam dunks by Brookfield’s, Conner Stevens, put the game just out of reach for Lisbon as they would fall, 69-62.

The Brookfield Warriors were led by Conner Stevens with 17 points and both Gage Emery and Haden Gibson added 15 points.

The Lisbon Blue Devils were led by Blayne Brownfield with 27 points and 12 rebounds. Gaige Rohm chipped in with 12 points, as Ryan McCullough also added in 9 points and 10 assists. Nic Mundy was on the boards hard as well, racking up 7 on the night.

Up next for Lisbon (9-11) will be the final game of the regular season, as they will travel up to Jackson-Milton to take on the Bluejays on Friday night.
