BTN: Dayton POY Finalists

By Greg Shoemaker | Featured Analyst

Luke Morgan passed for 60 touchdowns and ran for 20 more during his three years as a starter for Lebanaon.




The Dayton area is loaded with top notch talent and it showed on the high school gridiron around the Gem City and beyond this season. In this edition of By The Numbers we take a look at the eye-popping stats our Player of the Year finalists on both sides of the ball.

Few areas in the state, if not the entire nation, can boast such an impressive group of players.
