Team Profiles

The Wayne Warriors enter the 2016 football season under the watchful eye of head coach Jay Minton. Coach Minton is starting his 19th season as the head man at Wayne. The Warriors have participated in the last two state championship games, four in total, with Coach Minton at the helm. When talking high school football in Ohio, the Midwest, and even nationally, the Wayne Warriors are always in the conversation.

As Wayne looks to make their third straight state championship game they will have to do it with highly recruited quarterback Messiah DeWeaver. You will see Messiah playing on Saturday afternoons in East Lansing as a member of the Michigan State Spartans. Defensively they will be without 3-star defensive back Tobias Gilliam who will be playing for Kentucky this fall.

With the departure of an outstanding 2016 class, Wayne will once again reload. Seniors Matthew Wilcox, Sean Martin, and Josh Foster will look to be the catalysts for another memorable season. The junior class will be headlined by 5-star ATH L’Christian “Blue” Smith and defensive end Alex Reigelsperger

MaxPreps has Wayne HS ranked as the #3 team in the state of Ohio.
