Seven athletes accept offers from Northwestern, Notre Dame, Marquette and more at National Signing Day
Eight Cleveland Heights High School athletes gave impassioned speeches, thanked God and their coaches — and some wept — as they chose colleges at National Signing Day. The most suspenseful speech was from Shelton Gibson, a standout wide receiver who waited until the ceremony to reveal West Virginia University as his school of choice. Gibson’s career at Heights High is dotted with accolades, including being chosen to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl last month. His speech was short and sweet: he thanked God, his family, his coaches. “I feel extremely blessed, not only because I’m going to college, but because I have options,” he said. Other students spent more time at the podium. “My father has done a lot for me,” said Anthony …

Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights and Beachwood each enjoyed many highs during the fall sports season.
It’s well documented that the Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights and Beachwood football teams had strong seasons that fell just short of the state tournament, but plenty of other sports had highs, too. From stunning upsets to state tournament runs, here is a look at some of the highlights from the fall sports seasons. Tigers soccer team falls just short of regional tournament The Cleveland Heights boys soccer team came very close to a bid in the regional tournament, falling to Mayfield 1-0 in the district championship. However, the Tigers scored one of their biggest wins in program history in the semis: A 1-0 victory over former LEL rival Mentor. In Sean Sullivan’s 11-year career as head coach for the Tigers, he’s never beaten the Cardinals…

Cleveland Heights, Beachwood, Shaker Heights are all in the hunt for a playoff spot, but need help to move up in the computer rankings.
The Tigers dominated Lorain 41-13 behind Braxton Gamble’s five touchdown runs to keep their playoff hopes alive. The running back finished with 110 yards on 19 carries. Quarterback Taylor Jones added 135 yards on 11 carries. “The kids came out and played very, very hard,” Cleveland Heights coach Jeff Rotsky said. “Our defensive line had one of the best games of the year and we were certainly pleased. We believe that it was probably one of our all-around better games.” The Tigers took a 26-7 halftime lead and never looked back, controlling Lorain the entire way. Cleveland Heights sits at No. 11 — behind North Olmsted, Euclid and Shaker Heights — in the latest Division I, Region 1 rankings. However, according to Eitel the Tigers can finish …

Cleveland Heights still has a chance to make the playoffs, but the Tigers will need some help
Cleveland Heights’ and Shaker Heights’ playoff fates are intertwined, being ninth and 11th in Division I, Region 1. Both the Tigers and Red Raiders will likely need help, in addition to winning out, as they each lack opponents with winning records in Week 9 and 10 to give their computer points a huge boost. Six of the eight teams currently in the playoffs are projected by Joe Eitel to have control of their own destiny — St. Edward, St. Ignatius, Willoughby South, North Royalton, Warren G. Harding and Mentor. Drew Pasteur’s simulations give all six of those schools a 100 percent chance to make the playoffs regardless of how many more games they win. Of those six, only two face one another in the remaining weeks — St. Edward and St. Ignatius…
