Former Galion High School teammates and fellow members of the GHS graduating class of 2009 — Cartel Brooks and Jack Nicholls — each received First Team All-Ohio Athletic Conference honors in football as the result of their performances during the regular season.

Cartel — a junior tailback at Heidelberg University — ran for 1704 yards, 23 touchdowns and averaged 8.2 yards per carry to lead the OAC in rushing yards and touchdowns for the second year in a row. He also caught 9 passes for 208 markers and two more six-pointers and was named the conference’s Offensive Back of the Year. In addition, the three-time OAC Offensive Player of the Week this season set an all-time National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) single-game record for rushing yards with 465 a week-and-a-half ago against Baldwin Wallace in the regular-season finale.

Jack — a senior wide receiver for the undefeated and defending Division III national champion Mount Union Purple Raiders — led them in the regular-season in receptions (56), yards (854) and TD catches (9). In a 34-20 win over Washington and Jefferson in the first round of the playoffs last Saturday, Jack caught 3 more balls for 49 stripes. The Purple Raiders host OAC foe Wittenberg in the second round of the playoffs this Saturday.
