Ohio State commit Josh Myers, Springfield recruit Davis shake off injuries

UPDATE - Sept. 24, 8:12 p.m.

Ohio State commit Josh Myers, considered the top player in Ohio for the 2017 graduation class by many recruiting sites, returned later during Miamisburg's 21-17 win over unbeaten Troy to help the Vikings off the Trojans.

Myers left the game early after tweaking his ankle. 

Springfield's Danny Davis - a standout wide receiver with offers from Kentucky, Michigan State, Penn State and West Virginia - also left early with a leg injury, but returned and helped the Wildcats score in the waning moments of a 28-27 loss to Lebanon. Davis caught a touchdown pass with 17 seconds left to cut the Warriors lead to one. Springfield went for the two-point conversion and the win, but Lebanon stuffed them at the line. 

Sept. 23, 7:50 p.m.:

Two of the areas best high school football players limped off the field early during Friday's games.

Josh Myers, standout offensive tackle at Miamisburg and an Ohio State commit, took himself out of the Vikings' game at Troy. He was getting worked on by an athletic trainer on the sideline.

Springfield's Danny Davis, who is one of the best wide receivers in the state, had a long gain against Lebanon, but limped off the field the next play.
