WARREN, OH- Pittsburgh Steeler of yesteryear, Kordell Stewart made the nickname “Slash” ever popular in the late 90’s because he played so many positions on the field. Fast forward over 2 decades and Warren JFK is witnessing it’s a new brand of “Slash” in the form of senior, Cam Hollobaugh. St. Thomas Aquinas found that out first-hand on Kennedy’s way to a 37-7 victory.
The game started out as a chess match, with Kennedy taking the lead after a long drive stalled out in the red zone, and JFK would settle for a field goal to take a 3-0 lead from Sarosh Sheth. However, on the ensuing kickoff, D’Andre Black housed a 70-yard return to give the Knights the lead.
From that moment on, the Eagles were awoken.
Led by the defensive line and outstanding linebacker play from Eddie Kiernan and his crew, Kennedy shut down the Knights the rest of the way- and even scored on a fumble caused in the endzone recovered by Ambrose Hoso just a few minutes into the second quarter.
Offensively, Jesse Likens toted the rock 13 times for 40 yards and a TD, while Cam Hollobaugh did a little bit of everything. “Slash” had 47 yards passing on 8 of 9 completions, 13 carries for 86 yards, and also had 3 catches for 83 yards- add in a combined pair of touchdowns and he would be elected the Joe Dickey Electric Player of the game.
JFK (2-0) will now turn their attention to Conneaut (1-1) at home this Friday.
