September 17, 2011

The Wapakoneta Redskins used a second-quarter outburst to take a three-touchdown lead, then took advantage of Celina miscues to preserve a 41-20 win over the Bulldogs in a Western Buckeye League football game Friday night at Harmon Field.
Wapak remained undefeated at 4-0 on the season and 3-0 in the WBL.

MILFORD CENTER — In an emotional game for both schools, the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers edged the Fairbanks Panthers 12-6 on Friday at Fairbanks.

FOOTBALL: 'Skins have their eyes on Celina QB

September 15, 2011

Time to shift gears.
Again.
Last week it was Bath’s bruising back Aaron Smith.
Friday night it will be Celina Bulldogs quarterback Braden Billger and his arsenal of weapons.

And the Redskins defense could have its hands full with Billger.
The junior quarterback has thrown for 820 yards on 70 of 124 (56.5 percent) with seven touchdowns and three interceptions already this season.
