Here is a look at the top five plays our cameras caught from week six of the high school football season.

5. Hill over the goal line. Niles Kyle Paden threw for a school record 505 passing yards and six touchdowns against Canfield. One of those TDs was in thanks to a great effort by Marcus Hill. Catching the slant on the five yard line, Hill fought through a tackle, spun and stretched the ball across the goal line for the score.
4. Miller time. Columbiana quarterback Mitch Davidson threw a screen pass to Dalton Miller. Miller was wrapped up by a Lisbon defender nearly immediately, but Miller powered through the tackle and began running up the sidelines. After eluding one more diving defender and cutting inside, Miller finished off the 65-yard touchdown.
3. Dayne’s double grab. Sharpsville’s Dayne Smith caught a pass towards the sidelines, but was hit by a West Middlesex defender while being dragged down at his legs by another. The ball was bobbled after the initial hit, but while falling towards the ground, Smith secured the ball as he landed in bounds for the catch.
2. Townsend take away. Youngstown Christian’s Paris Bennett lobbed a pass down field for Darien Townsend. With a defender stride by stride with him, Townsend jumped up and caught the pass over the defender, landing in the end zone for the 27-yard touchdown.
1. Kim’s historic night. Canfield’s Kimu Kim takes the top spot based more on a body of work than one particular play. Kim set an OHSAA record with nine rushing touchdowns against Niles. His 497 rushing yards rank 5th all-time in Ohio history. This particular run had him following blockers and weaving through the Red Dragons defense, nearly losing his balance at one point. A 31-yard touchdown just one of the many historic moments in a 70-62 double overtime win.
