HS Football State Title Game: New Bremen Blanks Warren JFK 31-0 To Win Division VII State Championship

MASSILLON, OHIO — In 2014, New Bremen was on the verge of losing its football team due to low participation and very little success.

Just six years later, the Cardinals are state champions, defeating Warren JFK 31-0 to clinch their first title in school history

It was a scoreless tie for a good portion of the first half, with both teams exchanging several punts and turnovers.

The 8:19 mark is when Hunter Schaefer broke loose for a 39-yard touchdown run to put New Bremen ahead 7-0.

After a pretty even first half, New Bremen exploded in the second to take control of this game.

After a 1-yard touchdown carry by Mitchell Hays and a field goal from Owen Gabel made the score 17-0, David Homan returned a punt 45 yards for another New Bremen score.

Up 24-0, New Bremen’s defense continued to lock down JFK’s option-centric offense.

Quarterback Cam Hollobaugh, one of the best D-7 talents in the state, was held to just 54 yards rushing on 23 carries.

An impressive touchdown catch by Dan Homan early in the fourth made the score 31-0, setting the running clock rule into effect.

New Bremen finished with 247 yards of offense, compared to just 133 yards for Warren JFK.

The Cardinals defense was led by Dan Homan, who had 2.5 tackles for loss, including 1.5 sacks.

This is the first state championship victory in the history of New Bremen football. Their conference, the Midwest Athletic Conference, adds their 37th title, easily the most in OHSAA history.

This is a year that the entire town of New Bremen will never forget, for reasons different than most.
