Rockets earn OVAL honors

Finch is OVAL Coach of the Year –

By Wade Linville –

The Fayetteville-Perry High School varsity football team have completed another successful gridiron campaign, finishing unbeaten in league play to claim the program’s second consecutive Ohio Valley Athletic League title in only their second year of competing in a league.
In the wake of another successful fall season, there were some outstanding Rockets to earn OVAL honors.
Taking top honors in the OVAL was Fayetteville-Perry senior Chase Jester, who received the award as OVAL Football Player of the Year.
Jester recorded a total of 1,743 rushing yards and 24 touchdown carries as a senior running back, taking a total of 234 carries this fall season and averaged 7.4 yards per carry.
Fayetteville-Perry head football coach, Kevin Finch, has earned honors as the OVAL Football Coach of the Year after heading his team to another league crown.
Of course, Jester’s success as a running back could not have been possible without some gutsy play from a crew of experienced offensive lineman who were also among those to receive OVAL honors and their efforts did not go unrecognized. Rocket offensive lineman to earn OVAL First Team honors included seniors Tay Call and Ryan Shaw, while Nate Parks was named to the OVAL Second Team.
Other Rockets to earn OVAL First Team honors were freshman punter Dakota Fehring, senior defensive back Tyler Kingus, senior linebacker Andy Smith, as well as senior defensive linemen Skylar Minton and Garhett Thompson.
Other Fayetteville-Perry standouts to earn OVAL Second Team honors were junior quarterback Luke Wiederhold, senior running back Austin Brockman, offensive lineman Nate Parks, junior defensive back Clay Davis, junior defensive back Chase Lockwood, and junior linebacker Nate Fisher.
The Rockets finished their 2016 fall football campaign with an overall record of 6-4 with league victories over Hillcrest (61-42), Miami Valley Christian (24-13), Manchester (61-0), and Jefferson Township (42-20).
The Rockets staked claim to non-league victories over Clermont Northeastern (22-10) and Finneytown (48-0).
The Rockets finished their season with non-league losses to Bishop Ready (42-0), Notre Dame (27-0), Williamsburg (18-14), and Bethel-Tate (55-34).
The Rockets were scheduled to receive their OVAL awards during the league’s  fall football awards banquet on Nov. 20.
