PREP FOOTBALL: Fort Wayne Carroll dominates Goshen

FORT WAYNE — Drue Tranquill was nothing like his last name would lead you to believe.

He caused a multitude of problems for Goshen as the 6-2 (215) Carroll senior ran for two touchdowns, caught a pass for one and threw for another score in a 55-0 high school football win over the Redskins Friday night at Carroll.

If that isn’t bad enough, his 6-0 (190) junior brother Justin Tranquill ran for another score.

“They are both NCAA Division I stud athletes,” Goshen coach Mike Cheviron said. “It was a tough night for us. I thought we were prepared. We had a couple of chances to score. One came when we were down 14-0 and had an interception in the end zone (by Justin Tranquill). I don’t know if scoring there would have changed the game, but it certainly hurt our momentum and our confidence.”

Drue Tranquill has already committed to the Purdue Boilermakers.

“His younger brother will be playing at a major school as well,” Cheviron said.

The Carroll Chargers led 14-0 after one period and blew things open by adding 27 points in the second quarter. Carroll had an advantage in total yards at halftime of 280 to 96.

“I felt good when we were down 14-0, but then we had a couple of punts blocked,” Cheviron said. “The blocked punts is a team thing since every player has a job to do. We have some special team players to replace and if I was a sophomore I would be thinking about that. It would be a good way to get on the field for a varsity game.”

Goshen’s 6-0 (185) junior quarterback Derek DeMeyer completed 8 of 25 passes for 81 yards.

“Derek did a better job than his numbers indicate,” Cheviron said. “The receivers dropped some passes. We had a couple of early drops that could have turned into scores.

“The offensive line gave him decent protection. We just did not execute as well as we could have. Carroll made the plays and we didn’t.”

The Redskins ended up with 10 penalties for 70 yards.

“The penalties hurt us,” Cheviron said. “We have got to turn that around.”

Leading rushers for Goshen were 5-10 (177) senior John Trenshaw with 13 yards on six carries and 5-11 (157) classmate Jamie Graves nine on six.

Six-three (180) senior Sam Byler had one pass reception for 33 yards and 5-7 (188) senior Adan Murillo two for 24.

Goshen (0-1) hosts Elkhart Central next Friday.

Poll

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
