High school history: Ohio RB scores 10 touchdowns in 83-82 OT game
Earlier this week we told you that the game of football is being played faster than ever, from college to the NFL.
Apparently, that also includes high school football.
On Friday night, Tiffin Columbian and Shelby squared off in a Northern Ohio League high school game for the ages — an epic 83-82 overtime affair that’s sure to go down in the history books.
Not surprisingly, at least a couple of state records were in play, according to the Mansfield News Journal:
Whatever the tally, Miller’s rushing total did not approach a state record, as Williamsburg’s Jason Bainum ran for 532 yards to set the Ohio all-divisions record against Batavia Clermont Northeastern on Sept. 28, 2001.
The game was an instant classic and had fans on the edge of their seat until the final play of overtime, an 8-yard touchdown run my Miller, who also ran in the two-point conversion to seal the win.
The victory for Tiffin Columbian kept the team’s playoff hopes alive by improving to 5-3 overall and 3-2 in its conference.
Our only question is, what happened to the defense?
Holy Offensive Showdown… Shelby and Tiffin Columbian tied at 75 with 1:06 left in the game. You read that right folks… WOW.

In what is the most interesting game of the night. Tiffin Columbian defeated Shelby 83-82 in OT on a two point conversion. Unreal.

Tiffin Columbian 83, Shelby 82 in overtime. That's pure, unadulterated insanity.

Shelby, you know what, you dropped 82 on Tiffin. In the past 6 years, Shelby only scored 80 TOTAL against Tiffin Columbian. Dang.
