Cleveland Glenville is making a nice run through the Ohio Division I state playoffs, and a big reason why is the play of two-way star William Lowe. The 5-foot-9, 165-pounder has been doing most of his damage lately on the defensive side of the ball.
This past week in a 21-3 victory over Youngtown Boardman, Lowe blocked a field goal, broke up several passes and a number of jarring hits. Lowe said he's pleased with how he's played and how he's hoping to keep the Glenville express rolling in the quarterfinals against Mentor.
"Mentor has beaten us the last two times," Lowe said. "They were the team that knocked us out last year. We're going to have to continue to play better on the defensive side of the ball. This time around, it's going to be our turn."
Lowe has been making a big splash on the recruiting scene.
He says he has offers from West Virginia, Marshall, Indiana, North Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Toledo, Ball State, Akron and Miami University. But asking him to name a favorite at this point is really tough.
"I don't even have a top five," Lowe said. "I'll start to worry about that after we're done. That's when I'll set up my official visits."
Lowe did say he's built a good relationship with Indiana assistant Bobby Johnson.
"I like him a lot," Lowe said. "He's just real cool and nice. I think I can relate to him really well."
