Seven proved to be a lucky number when it came to Avon’s offense.
Quarterback Jake Sopko threw four touchdowns – three of them to Zack Torbert, while Gerrett Choat rushed for three touchdowns as the host Eagles scored on all seven possessions they had in the first half en route to a 52-13 nonconference win over Twinsburg on Sept. 12.
“We had a really hard week of practice,” Sopko said. “We knew they (Twinsburg) were a good team, better than what their record shows. We really wanted to be efficient, get everything going which I thought we did.”
The efficiency Avon (3-0) wanted came to fruition early.
On the game’s fourth play, Sopko did a beautiful play-action fake handoff to Choat and lofted his pass to Torbert, who got behind the defense. Torbert hauled in the pass and outraced the Tigers defender to score from 59 yards out.

For the Shoremen, too bad paper is not reality.
Avon rode the arm of junior quarterback Jake Sopko to a 44-7 victory in the home of its rival on Aug. 29, dominating the Shoremen from the start.
“Any time you can beat your rival and get a win, we’re happy with that,” Avon coach Mike Elder said. “I have tremendous respect for Avon Lake and their kids. They played exceptionally hard and they never quit and that’s the sign of a well-coached team.”
