Springfield Northwestern football coach Stevens resigns

Springfield Northwestern High School in Springfield, Ohio is a tough place for a football coach to stay.

The Warriors have had just one winning season since the 1980′s, going 6-4 in 2006. They have not won a league title since 1967, and have never played in the OHSAA playoffs.

Athletic Director Jeff Hobby is looking for a new head football coach.

Brian Stevens, the head coach the past three seasons, has resigned.

Stevens had a record of 5-25 at Northwestern, which sits on State Route 41 just Northwest of Springfield.

The Warriors improved quite a bit under Stevens’ guidance but it did not add wins to show the actual progress.

Northwestern went 2-8 in both 2009 and 2010 and 1-9 in 2011.

Stevens, who plans on spending more time with his wife and two children, did not rule out coaching in 2012.

TOLEDO-OSU RECAP: Toledo players know they missed an opportunity for an upset

Terrell Anderson, Austin Dantin, Terrance Owens and Malcolm Riley represented the Toledo Rockets football team on the postgame podium in the visitors media room in Ohio Stadium after the 27-22 loss to the Buckeyes on Saturday afternoon.

Those players had the look of disappointment because they knew that themselves and their teammates blew a golden chance to be the first MAC team to beat the Buckeyes.

But the Rockets hurt themselves with penalties and a shaky punt team. Toledo was penalized 14 times for 102 yards. They had a key holding call against their defense on Ohio State’s bad pass on a 3rd-and-goal in the third quarter and it gave the Buckeyes new life. Carlos Hyde scored the go-ahead TD on the very next play.

The Rockets defense led by Riley and Anderson, confused the Buckeyes offense with blitzes and stunts and put an extra man in the box on running plays. It is surprising that Ohio State ended up with 112 yards total on 34 carries.

The Rockets offense gave the OSU defense fits with its athleticism, speed and play-making abilities. The Rockets use a spread offense and used Springfield, Ohio native Eric Page, as their primary weapon. The Buckeyes had trouble finding him as Toledo lined him up in different spots: wide right, wide left, in the slots, in the backfield and at quarterback. From the QB spot, Page threw a completed pass to junior TE Hank Keighley for a two-point conversion in the first quarter, to put the Rockets up 8-7. Page is 5-for-6 throwing the football in his UT career.

With the loss, the Rockets fell to 6-9 all-time against teams ranked in the Top 25, including 1-8 in the opposing stadium.

Toledo is now 6-15 all-time versus the Big Ten, but a very respectable 6-10 since breaking through with a win over Purdue in 1992.

Ohio State is 18-0 against Mid-American Conference teams.

One of small college football’s coaching legends has passed away.

Dave Maurer, who coached the Wittenberg University Tigers football team to three Division III national championships and two runner-up finishes, died last weekend. He was 79.

Maurer, along with Bill Edwards before him, put Wittenberg football into the national spotlight year-after-year.

Maurer was inducted into the National College Football Hall of Fame in 1991.

Maurer spent an incredible 40 years at Wittenberg (1955-1995) at Wittenberg as a coach of several sports, professor and administrator.

From 1969 to 1984, the Tigers went 129-23-3 and won seven Ohio Athletic Conference championships.

The football stadium at Wittenberg University, located in Springfield, Ohio is called Edwards-Maurer Field.
