Maple Heights stormed back from an early deficit to win the Ohio Division-II state championship Friday night in Massillon. Trailing 26-7 in the second quarter, Mustand quarterback Shaq Washington put on one of the greatest performances in Ohio high school history, accounting four seven touchdowns in all. Bill Greene was on hand to cover the action.

One of the smallest players on the field put on an unbelievable show, as Maple Heights senior Shaquille Washington accounted for seven touchdowns, in leading the Mustangs to an amazing 45-33 comeback win over Trotwood Madison.

The win gives Maple Heights the Ohio Division-II state championship, their first in school history, and avenges last year's finals loss to Cincinnati Winton Woods. Trailing 26-7 in the second quarter, Washington helped the Mustangs outscore the Rams 38-7 the rest of the game.

Washington ran for 174 yards and four touchdowns, and also threw for 216 yards and three scores, in one of the top performances in Ohio state championship history. The Cincinnati commit received help from seniors Dana Day and Andre Stubbs, as both were on the receiving end of Washington scoring tosses.
