The Avon High football team concluded the 2020 season in Final Four fashion again this year.
The Eagles, ranked third in the state in Div. II, fell to top-ranked Akron Hoban, 28-14, at Parma’s Byers Field Friday night to conclude the program’s fourth-straight trip to the Final Four.
“I am proud of each and every one of you,” said Coach Mike Elder in the team huddle after the game. “At first, we didn’t even know if we would have a season. But this team accomplished so much.”
Avon won the Southwestern Conference championship for the fifth year in a row, beat Avon Lake in double-overtime in the season opener to take the Silver Rail trophy, topped arch-rival Olmsted Falls in regular season comeback victory, and then defeated Avon Lake for a second time, 20-17, for a Div. II Regional title.
It was another great year for the Eagles, who continued to fly high in 2020!
