COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Michael Warren, a running back who piled up 2,740 yards and 45 touchdowns for Toledo Central Catholic this season, is the 30th annual winner of the Ohio Associated Press Mr. Football award.
The 5-foot-10, 210-pound senior capped one of the finest careers for a back in Ohio high school history, rolling up 7,619 yards and 105 touchdowns in leading Toledo Central Catholic to a 50-7 overall record in his four seasons.
Warren was chosen in balloting by a statewide panel of sports writers.
The Fighting Irish finished 13-1 this season and advanced to the state Division III semi-final game. Behind Warren's running, the school won the state championship in 2014 and was runner-up last season.
The highly sought recruit has committed to play college ball for the hometown Toledo Rockets.
