(***Note from Dan Ramey: While researching for this article, the Ohio High School Athletic Association had Coach Hinton's career record for wins posted as 285. Add in the 14 victories he has as Chillicothe coach and you get 299, right? Not so fast. The OSHAA looked further into the number and in a release by CHS Principal Jeff Fisher late Friday morning, ohsaa.org "had logged in his 4 wins in his first season coaching at CHS as he had 281 wins as a coach at Piketon and AC combined. This explains how originally the coaches association and OHSAA had thought he was at 299 as they added his 14 CHS wins to 285 and that left him at 299 going for win 300 tonight. When in all actuality his first 4 wins at CHS had already been added from 2010 and his 2011-2012 win total combined with the wins thus far this year is at 10 leaving Ron Hinton with an overall win total going into tonight of 295 wins." Therefore, the mention of a potential 300th win in regards to the article below, has been striken from the report. Dan)
It's a battle of heavyweights Friday night outside Washington Court House.
The Cavs (3-0) and host Miami Trace Panthers (3-0) are playing one of two games featuring South Central Ohio League teams off to undefeated starts. Defending Division IV champ Clinton-Massie battles McClain in the other.
Chillicothe is off to its best start since 1998 when they won their first four games (at 41-0 Watkins Memorial, 52-10 vs Mt. Vernon, 55-0 vs Dayton Colonel White, now Thurgood Marshall and 75-7 at Hilliard Darby) in which they overpowered their four opponents 223-17 (an avg. 55.8PF to 6.7PA) under Bill Dennis’s "Run-'N-Boot offense.
When the teams take the field, it will not be the first time Panthers Coach Steve Bartlett has faced a Chillicothe team. The Cavs hosted Bartlett's Dayton Carroll Patriots in the 1999 playoffs, a 14-7 Chillicothe win.
Ryan Mathis directs a Cavalier offense which has yet to meet its posted team goals in the first three weeks. Mathis said on The Ron Hinton Show "We've got to practice better. Our offensive practices aren't as good as our defensive practices." The senior signal caller is happy the Cavs added another weapon last week with the return of Markel Cain."It helps that we have Markel back... that's going to be a big part of getting the offense rollin'."
Cain and sophomore Nate Rosenbauer each found the end zone last week and had about 75 yards rushing apiece. Rosenbauer has been the most productive on offense averaging nearly 100 yards per game with five touchdowns and a touchdown pass.
It’s been the defense which has been the staple for the Cavaliers. Chillicothe held Johnstown Monroe to less than 100 yards offense, allowed 134 yard on Big Walnut’s first two possessions, but then 64 yards the rest of the way and contained Teays Valley’s 39ppg attack to 124 total yards in their 21-0 shutout in the home opener last Friday.
As the Cavs open SCOL play this weekend, it marks the return to the league after an 84 year absence from the league it helped found in 1923. The Cavs recorded four SCOL titles during their short stay in the league.
Chillicothe leads the series with Miami Trace 5-4 and has won four of the last five meetings, including their last game together at Herrnstein Field in 1993, a 48-14 win. The two clubs first met in 1973 (won 28-8) but lost their next three battles, 1974 (22-8), 1981 (14-12) and 1982 (21-20). The Cavs won the next three meetings in 1987 (24-7), 1988 (13-0) and 1989 (19-14). The Panthers last win against Chillicothe was 1992 (43-0).
