  • Ohio Varsity Players of the Week 9/17/20

    Ohio Varsity Players of the Week 9/17/20

    Ohio Varsity Players of the Week 9/17/20
    By: Steve Hare

    Athletes from five different schools have been named the Ohio Varsity Players of the Week.

    Each player was nominated by his or her coach.All statistics incurred during the week beginning Sept. 7 and ending on Sept. 13.

    Here’s a look at each Player of the Week by sport:


    Sam Honkala

    Name: Sam Honkala
    School: Fairport Harding
    Grade: 11
    Stats: Caught seven passes for 104 yards and picked off two passes
    Coach’s Quote: “Sam played well in our first two games, but he emerged as a big-time playmaker in week three against Windham,” Fairport coach Cameron Ruff said. “He is a first-year junior and he has worked hard over the summer to gain weight and learn our passing routes and coverages. He is extremely intelligent and asks questions to better understand his responsibilities.He caught a season-high seven passes on offense for 104 yards and made some clutch catches on third downs. He also intercepted two Windham passes that took Windham’s offensive momentum away. He has also done a tremendous job as our holder on extra points and other special teams units. He rarely comes off the field and he is a strong contributor to our team. He displayed those contributions full force in week three and led Fairport to a 30-0 win.”

  • Skippers clicking on all cylinders By Steve Hare -September 14, 2020

    Skippers clicking on all cylinders By Steve Hare -September 14, 2020

    Skippers clicking on all cylinders
    By Steve Hare -September 14, 2020
    Without much of an off-season, the Fairport football team had to rely on the individual work each Skipper put in to set the tone for the 2020 season.

    Fortunately, that work went above and beyond what was required and has led the Skippers to a 3-0 start for the first time since 2012.

    “The kids have been working hard and they got themselves prepared,” Fairport coach Cameron Ruff said. “They’ve been working hard since November and December and even with the quarantine, they were at home lifting wheelbarrows and whatever else they could find laying around the house. That’s been their goal; to be in the position they’re in now at 3-0.”

    The Skippers haven’t just won all of their games through three weeks, they’ve been dominant.

    Fairport has outscored its three opponents, 105-7, and has yet to allow a defensive touchdown.

    “Our defense has played absolutely lights out,” Ruff said. “The seven points we gave up was on a kickoff return so the defense is still has a shutout. They’ve been tackling well and playing well, flying around to the ball. Our defensive backs have only allowed one completion on the year so far. They’ve been flying around hitting people and having fun.”

    Skippers shut out Windham 30-0
    The Fairport Harding Skippers traveled to Windham, Ohio to take on the Windham Bombers. The Skippers would continue their hot start to the season with a 30-0 victory over the Bombers.

    The Skippers Defense dominated for the third straight week led by Junior Dillon Knesebeck who had 11 tackles and fellow Junior Sam Honkala who had 2 interceptions.

    The Skippers would score on their first drive of the game on a 42-yard touchdown pass from Sophomore QB Will Fezekas to Junior Tai Malone with 9:46 left in the 1st quarter.

    Moments later, just a few plays after the kickoff to the Bombers, Tai Malone would intercept the pass from Windham Sophomore QB Wyatt Hanshaw. The Skippers took over inside the Bomber 40 but failed to score.

    The 1st quarter was rocky for both teams but then in the 2nd quarter Fairport would start to dominate the game. With 7:33 left in the first half Senior Dom Knesebeck would sack Hanshaw in the endzone for a safety putting the Skippers on top 9-0. Then just 58 seconds later the Skippers would score on a 34-yard TD pass from Will Fazekas to Dillion Knesebeck to make the score 16-0 with 6:35 left in the 2nd.

    Just under two minutes later Senior Quentin Piotrowski blocked a punt and return it to the three yard line where on the next play Junior Running Back Josiah Cooper rushed for a three yard touchdown to make it 23-0 with 4:36 left in the half. That would remain the score at the half.

    Two minutes and thirty-one seconds into the third quarter Running Back Josiah Cooper ran for his second touchdown of the night making the score 30-0 with 9:39 left in the third quarter. The Skipper and Bombers did no more damage on offense as the game ended 30-0 Fairport.

    What is a Quality Profile? The purpose of the Quality Profile is to provide “the rest of the story,” giving the Fairport Harbor community a report on how our schools are performing in the areas that matter most. The Fairport Harbor community believes schools should provide opportunities for students to pursue excellence in many forms. The education we provide goes far beyond what is measured by the Ohio Department of Education standardized tests. The best way to prepare our students for success in college, career, and life is to create opportunities for personalized learning tailored to individual student talents and interests. That is why Fairport students are learning today and leading tomorrow.
