Again the Madison game was for the OHC crown for the 4th time in six year, but the memorable game of the season was the upset of State ranked Orrville. Jesse Schmidt and Phil Hawk were first-team AP All-Ohio. Schmidt had 13 interceptions including four against the Red Riders. Hawk had a 92-percent blocking grade and a phenomenal 36 pancakes. Doug Myers set the AHS passing record with 16 touchdown passes. Schmitz (38 catches & 8 TDs) and Kevin Reagan (25 receptions & 7 TDs) were the top receivers. Tony Dee was the defensive player of the year, and Mike Ihrig the Senior Achievement Award. It was the Arrows third straight 5-5 season.
