Trotwood-Madison RB Ra’veion Hargrove Mr. Football runner-up


Trotwood-Madison senior running back Ra’veion Hargrove finished runner-up to Wadsworth senior quarterback Joey Baughman as the Ohio high school Mr. Football. The award was released on Wednesday by the Ohio High School Athletic Association.

An unlikely preseason candidate, Baughman was outstanding, passing for 3,079 yards and adding 1,523 yards rushing for Division II Wadsworth, which went 10-0 in the regular season and 11-1 overall. He accounted for 56 touchdowns. He had just three interceptions in 331 passes.

A two-time state runner-up and three-time state placer, Baughman has signed with the University of Virginia to wrestle. Ohio State was among his wrestling offers.

Hargrove has more than 7,000 career rushing yards and has led top-ranked Trotwood (14-0) into its second straight D-III state title game this weekend.

There have been four area Ohio Mr. Football players: Bobby Hoying (St. Henry, 1990), Curtis Enis (Mississinawa Valley, ’93), Ryan Brewer (Troy, ’98) and Brandon Saine (Piqua, 2006).
