Two members of the 9-3 Central Catholic football team, which reached the second round of the Division II playoffs, losing 19-13 to Maple Heights in Huron last Saturday, are east side residents. The Irish opened playoff action with a 35-7 victory over 7-4 Rocky River.
 
One of the Irish’s leading tacklers is All-City League linebacker and East Toledo resident Jake Henderson, who is also a state contender in wrestling. The other starter from this side of town is lineman Ryan Gregory.
 
Henderson is being looked at in wrestling by North Carolina-Greensboro, Buffalo, Stanford, Columbia, Bucknell, Maryland, Cornell, and Princeton. His father, Dave Henderson, says he is considering Buffalo after a recent trip to the Mid-American Conference school, and adds that Henderson may attempt to walk on for football if he attends these schools.
