For many of the football players at the Cap City Preps Senior Bowl on June 19 at Groveport, they played big games in high school and expect more big games in college.

Though an all-star contest may not qualify as a big game, East coach Charles Stewart didn't have much trouble getting his players to bring regular-season intensity.

The East defeated the West 22-0.

"For these guys, this is their last high school game and that's what I sold them on," Stewart said. "We're going to end your high school career and start your college career in like a four-minute gap. End it and start it the right way, this is what we're going to do."

Stewart, the defensive coordinator at Walnut Ridge, saw the East defense bend but not break.

Westerville South quarterback Jonathan Jennings led the East. He was 4-for-8 passing for 64 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. His 35-yard touchdown pass to Walnut Ridge's Donovan Gwynn increased the East's lead to 22-0 and effectively put the game out of reach with 8 minutes, 3 seconds left.

"I waited all night to get that catch," Gwynn said. "I ran that route during the season. Coach told me to get in there, run the fade, and I caught it.

"This was a great game. I feel like there was a lot of talent out there and we got the victory."

Jennings was named offensive MVP for doing more than just playing quarterback. He wowed the crowd with several high-arcing punts before throwing the touchdown pass.

Columbus East's T.C. Turner was named defensive MVP for the East. He intercepted Columbus West's Eric Stewart on the West's first drive of the second half. Stewart, who threw for 2,443 yards last season, was 6-for-9 for 33 yards and an interception.

West's first possession of the second half provided its best scoring chance. A 56-yard run by Columbus West's Jonathan Parks moved the ball to the East's 20-yard line. But two plays later, Turner intercepted Stewart on a fade route.

The only other big play for the West came at the end of the first half on a 30-yard run by Hilliard Davidson running back Spencer Delande. An interception by Africentric's Tajh Jones with less than a minute to go in the half gave the West the ball at its 40-yard line. Delande took the first play around the right side, advancing to the West's 30 before time ran out on the next play.

Delande, who finished with five carries for 45 yards and one catch for 23 yards, was named offensive MVP for the West. DeSales linebacker Malcolm Burrell was the West's defensive MVP.

Dublin Coffman's Sean Jones rushed eight times for 33 yards in what was a steady ground game for the West.

Independence's Devin Clodfelter ran for 64 yards on four carries for the East, including a 48-yard touchdown run with 10:48 left in the second quarter. The ensuing extra point by Liberty Union's Sam Tennant made it 7-0.

The four carries was light work for Clodfelter, who rushed 48 times for 484 yards in a 74-71 loss to Columbus West last season in one of the highest-scoring games all-time in Ohio.

"It was really important to just come out here and get my head together, to help my team win and put on a good show for the crowd," said Clodfelter, who will be playing for Lane College in Jackson, Tenn. "We had more players on the team. I didn't want to be selfish (with the carries)."

After Clodfelter's touchdown run, the East scored again on its ensuing possession. Liberty Union's Dustin Love scored on an 8-yard run. Love's touchdown was set up by an interception by Groveport's Jamon Hayes.

The East scored on a safety in the third quarter when Reynoldsburg's Devon McKoy blocked a punt by Grove City Christian's Brice Bowman and the ball rolled into the end zone, where a West player recovered it at the bottom of a pile.
