The Streetsboro Rockets qualified for the state playoffs this past season, thanks mainly to Dorian Williams. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound senior was a standout on both sides of the ball.
Williams not only was one of the top running backs in Northeastern Ohio, but also sparked the Rockets defense in the secondary.
The Streetsboro standout was rewarded for his outstanding season by being named to the Division IV All-Ohio First Team as a defensive back.
Williams was the only area player named to the first three all-state teams, but a pair of Streetsboro teammates -- Sam Creque and Brandon Gency -- were selected for Special Mention. Creque was a 6-0, 240 senior offensive and defensive lineman, while Gency was a 6-3, 215 quarterback and linebacker.
In Division III, a pair of Woodridge Bulldogs were selected to the First Team All-Ohio squad. Nelson Perry, a 5-11, 155 pound senior, was a First Team wide receiver, and was joined by record-setting senior placekicker Hunter Niswander, a Northwestern University recruit.
Picking up Special Mention honors were four Ravenna standouts: junior lineman Brandon Craig, senior defensive back/quarterback Kyle Spellman, senior wide receiver/defensive back Kyle Kornbau and senior linebacker Andy Rodriguez.
Also making Special Mention were two Southeast players, senior lineman Eric Stone and senior running back Brandon Olson.
