Tim Tyrrell, the head coach of the Archbishop Hoban Knights joined the Sam and Brad Show Friday to talk about the Knights' third straight state title.
Hoban defeated Winton Woods 42-14 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.
The Archbishop Hoban Knights are now in rarified air as they captured a Division II State title over Cincinnati Winton Woods 42-14 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.
The win gives the Knights three titles in a row and their first in Division II. Their first two titles in this dominant run came in Division III.
Coach Tim Tyrrell's team opened up the game in a big way when quarterback Shane Hamm connected with Garrett Houser on a 73-yard pass play to make it 7-0.
Tyrrell said his freshman signal caller played well tonight.
"He was very smart in being able (to check at the line of scrimmage)," Tyrrell said.
"The offensive line did a great job in protection and the receivers made great plays on the ball."
Hoban also capitalized early on mistakes by the Warriors, opening up the first quarter scoring off a blocked punt to make it a 14-0 game.
They didn't take their foot off the gas as Houser, a Navy commit, got his 2nd TD of the ballgame to open the second quarter to put Hoban up 21-0.
A long run by Winton Woods' Miyan Williams led to a touchdown pass to Cornell Beachem from signal caller Kenny Mayberry to cut the lead to 21-7 with 9:19 left to play in the first half.
The Knights answered quickly with a long pass to Nate Bauer to set up a 1-touchdown plunge by junior Tyris Dickerson to make it 28-7.
Raquean Prince of Winton Woods then answered for the Warriors returning the subsequent kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown to cut the lead half 28-14.
Hoban then connected on a 38-yard scoring strike to Mason Tipton, who appeared to step out of bounds, but the TD stood.
Freshman QB Shane Hamm then hit end zone again with another touchdown pass to Tipton to make it a 42-14 halftime lead after a failed fake punt attempt by Winton Woods.
It was Hamm's fourth touchdown toss of the night.
Both teams had a scoreless third quarter, but Hoban kept up the defensive pressure, which was just what Coach Tyrrell wanted.
When asked which was the most memorable aspect of this three year run by the Knights, Tyrrell pointed to the seniors who led on the field, in the weight room, and with the underclassmen.

The Archbishop Hoban football program and head coach Tim Tyrrell are under the microscope of the Ohio High School Athletic Association and with the rival STVM Fighting Irish coming up this Friday, the team is looking to eliminate distractions.
High School sports reporter Tim Rogers spoke with Sam Bourquin Tuesday to talk about the alleged recruiting violations and what the Knights are facing from the OHSAA.
The violation stems from Coach Tyrrell allegedly initiating contact with a student at St. Hilary during 2015.
The school is on probation for the rest of the 2016-17 school year and for the following school year. Coach Tyrrell is also not allowed to coach the team if they make the playoffs this season.
The Ohio High School Athletic Association has announced the penalties issued against Archbishop Hoban High School and Knights football coach Tim Tyrrell over recruiting violations.
The investigation is ongoing, but OHSAA released the initial findings and penalties against the school. In a statement, OHSAA interim commissioner says Tyrrell "was aware his actions were in violation of the OHSAA's recruiting bylaw."
The initial penalties include a postseason coaching suspension for Tyrrell if Hoban qualifies for the 2016 playoffs. Hoban also will be placed on probation for the remainder of the 2016-17 school year and all of the 2017-18 school year. Tyrrell will also be limited to a total of five days of contact with the Hoban football team during the summer of 2017.
The OHSAA is expected to announce the end of the investigation and any additional findings and penalties at a later date.

The Eagles are the defending Division I State Champions and Friday's matchup will pit them against Division II state champ Hoban, who is coming off a 42-14 win over Stark County power Canton McKinley.
Coach Lombardo says that Hoban's the real deal.
"They can run it, they can throw it, they're well coached, so it'll be a good challenge for us."

"I think our kids were ready for McKinley," Tyrrell said. "We made too many mental mistakes with the offsides and things."
Defending Division I State Champions St. Edwards comes up next for Hoban and he knows Tom Lombardo's team won't beat themselves.
"They play as a team," Coach Tyrrell said. "They're constantly running to the football on defense and they take what the defense gives them on offense."
Tyrrell says that his line is going to have to fire off the ball and running back Todd Sibley and quarterback Danny Clark will have to bring their A game as well.

It will be a clash of the titans in Week 10 of the high school football season as Archbishop Hoban High School and Cleveland Benedictine will tee it up on the gridiron Saturday night.
Benedictine coach Joe Schaefer joined the show to talk about the matchup with Hoban, saying that they have athletes to defend all over the field.
The Bengals are 9-0 on the season, along with the Hoban Knights, so both teams will be facing a huge test prior to the playoffs, which start next week.
Schaefer said his team has been doing well along both lines, offensively and defensively, and that play in the trenches is crucial to his team's success.
For Archbishop Hoban, Tim Tyrell says that defensively, his team needs to be sure to keep everything in front of them and stay disciplined with all of the athletes at the quarterback, receiver, and skill positions for Benedictine.
