Central Ohio Regional Scouting Director

Fredericktown, a 2012 state semi-finalist, has seven returning starters from last year’s successful season.  After a 23-4 record, Coach Craze can only expect big things to happen again. 

Led by All-Ohioan, Matt Smith (Western Carolina commit) and Nash Cunningham (Ashland commit), the Freddies should be at the top of the leaderboard in the Mid Buckeye Conference.
