For this week's edition of our Know Your Prospect interview, we went just north of 303 to speak with Jeff Fox, the head coach of the Nordonia Knights to talk shoutdown cornerback Denzel Ward.
The NFL Draft is less than three weeks away, and Ward is making a name for himself at some local combines and workouts.
In Week 2 of the High School football playoffs, Nordonia is riding high off a thrilling Week 1 win over neighboring Aurora 39-37. They will face a stiff challenge in Hudson on Friday night.
Knights head coach Jeff Fox joined the Sam Bourquin Show to talk about the matchup with Ron Wright's Explorers and the quality play from his team in all phases of the game against the Greenmen.
Fox was truly proud of his young men, saying they showed toughness and resolve throughout the contest.
"We held on, it was a total team effort," Fox said. "You have to give our kids credit, we doug ourselves into a hole, but we never gave up."
Looking to Hudson, Fox says that he knows his team will be in for a battle and that they'll have to match their physicality.
On the Hudson side of things, head coach Ron Wright said his team is battle-tested after a highly intense matchup with Copley in the opening round of the playoffs.
"I consider them to be a high-powered offense, they have a good athlete at quarterback, good tailback, so we'll be on our toes," Wright said.
