EC's Griffin Davies, Columbia's Brandon Coleman named all-district players of the year


Although Lorain County was well represented when the Northeast Lakes all-district football teams were announced Wednesday, most of the area players and coaches that won the biggest honors didn’t have much time to celebrate.

They were busy getting ready to play another week of football.

Three of the four coaches whose teams are still alive in the postseason won Coach of the Year awards — Avon Lake’s Matt Kostelnik in Division II, Clearview’s Mike Collier in Division IV and Elyria Catholic’s Brian Fox in Division V.

In addition, Elyria Catholic senior defensive end Griffin Davies won the Division V Defensive Player of the Year award while Columbia’s Brandon Coleman, Lorain County’s all-time leading rusher, was named the Division VI Offensive Player of the Year.

Coleman recovered from an ACL tear that cost him the second half of the 2017 season to rush for 1,698 yards and 23 touchdowns this season while helping lead the Raiders back to the playoffs for the third time in his career. He also had 62 tackles, a sack and two interceptions on defense.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Coleman ended his career with 5,140 rushing yards and 76 touchdowns.

“The award means a lot to me but I know I wouldn’t have won it without my teammates and my coaches pushing me to be the best I could be,” Coleman said. “I know it’s my award but it really belongs to the team. We worked hard this year, we had some good times on the field. It was a fun year.”

For Davies, who had 146 tackles -- 23.5 for a loss -- 10 sacks, 16 quarterback hurries and also scored a safety this season, the fun is still going strong as the Panthers are getting ready to face undefeated Genoa Area in a Division V, Region 18 semifinal Saturday.

“It’s a very humbling thing to win an award like this. I was very shocked and excited,” Davies said. “I’m happy to be surrounded by such a great team and have such great coaches who push me every day.

“It means so much to go from a team that was 3-7 last year and no one was expecting us to be anything to still being alive going into Week 12. It’s been a great thing for my team, my school and our community.”

Fox, the architect of the Panthers’ turnaround from 3-7 to 9-2, was named the district’s top coach in his first season at Elyria Catholic.

“The key to our turnaround has been our senior class, this has been an unbelievable group,” Fox said. “I didn’t have to get them to buy in, they were so hungry for something like this. They wanted someone who was going to push them and hold them accountable. I saw how talented this group was and I knew we’d have a good team this year. It was just a matter of how good we could be.”

After a few lean years, Collier has had the Clippers back on top of the Patriot Athletic Conference Stripes Division and in the playoffs the last two years. Now Clearview (10-1) is getting ready for a Division IV, Region 14 semifinal rematch against the Clear Fork team that ended its season a year ago.

“The award is a testament to how well our team has done and how well our entire coaching staff has performed,” Collier said. “I truly believe if you surround yourself with good people, good things happen. The chemistry we have on our coaching staff is so great it really carries over to the kids. I’m really proud of everybody in this program who has worked so hard over the past two years to get Clearview football back to where it should be.”

Kostelnik led the Shoremen to a share of the Southwestern Conference championship and a 10-1 record as they prepare to face Toledo Central Catholic in a Division II, Region 6 semifinal Friday.

“I give all the credit to the seniors on this team. They bought in and did an incredible job. They took leadership roles and were committed to building the program,” Kostelnik said. “When you’re putting together a program, it’s good to win early but it really comes down to Shoremen tradition and what the previous coaches at Avon Lake have put together and trying to feed off that and bring that back while trying to put my own little spin on things.”

Avon, the only other local team still alive in the playoffs, had five players named to the Division II first team.

Elyria Catholic had eight first-teamers in Division V.
