ARCHIVED FROM FOOTBALL IN OHIO
Last Friday night, the Clinton-Massie Falcons rolled Ohio’s top team in Division IV, Wyoming 42-14, to advance to the next round of the playoffs.
One reason for the dominating performance was the Falcons rushing attack that racked up 442 total yards, all from the running game and 21 first downs against the Cowboys.
Senior running backs Carson Vanhoose (157 yds / 2 TDs) and Colton Trampler (119 yds / 2 TDs), along with senior quarterback Kody Zantene (118 yds / 2 TDs), led the offensive explosion. Still, it was the play of the Falcons offensive line that opened running lanes throughout the night.
Junior offensive lineman Adam Frisch had a vital role in the offense’s overall performance, and FootballInOhio.com spoke with Frisch after the game about his play and goal of playing the game in college.
Football In Ohio: Can you talk about the game and win over Wyoming?
Adam Frisch: Overall, we dominated on offense, and I feel our defense rose to the occasion, and we dominated on both sides of the ball.
Football In Ohio: Talk about being part of a great running offense with so many talented backs?
Adam Frisch: It’s a blessing to have some great running backs running behind this offensive line, and we love blocking for them. We know any of them can break a long run at any time.
Football In Ohio: Coach (Dan) McSurley talked about how this game was one the team had worked for since last season. What does this win mean?
Adam Frisch: We started our countdown after last year’s loss in the regional semifinals against these guys. Last season’s loss stayed with us, and we never stopped working toward this game until we got here tonight. We rose to the occasion and finished the job.
Football In Ohio: Is it hard to believe the season is now heading to Week 14?
Adam Frisch: It’s surprising how fast the season is going. We’ve been working hard and still have several goals ahead of us we want to achieve.
Football In Ohio: Do you have any thoughts of playing the game in college?
Adam Frisch: My goal is to play in college. I love playing the game and look forward to finding a college program to continue playing the game while earning my degree. I know I don’t have the measurables Division One college programs look for, but I enjoy playing the game and putting in the work. I feel I’ll be a center in college and have the ability to long snap as well.
