Rhodes Jump rushed for 295 yards and five touchdowns on 29 carries in a 41-27 victory over London on Sept. 25 in MSL-Ohio play, but all the Grandview Heights High School senior could think about was this week.

Grandview plays Friday, Oct. 2, at home against Whitehall, which defeated the Bobcats 28-20 last season en route to winning the league title.

"(The London win) puts us in a good spot going forward in the league," Jump said. "Having Whitehall next is great. (The Rams) beat us last year and kept us from winning the league. We can't wait to play them."

Last season, Grandview tied Bexley and West Jefferson for second (4-2) behind Whitehall (5-1).

The Rams have a new coach in Rod Lightfoot after Jake Kuhner left to become wrestling coach at Pickerington North. They are 2-3 overall and 1-1 in the league after defeating Academy 35-21 on Sept. 25.

Junior quarterback DeShante Vaughn was 12-for-13 passing for 212 yards with two touchdowns against the Vikings. Senior running back Earl Redman rushed for 111 yards and one score on 16 carries.

Redman has rushed for 216 yards and two touchdowns on 41 carries, and Vaughn has completed 45 of 87 passes for 641 yards with five touchdowns and seven interceptions.

"(The Rams) are athletic and they have a good (running) back," coach Jason Peters said. "We have to work hard to get ready for another tough game with them."

The Bobcats lost junior slotback/defensive back Jordan Beight for the season to a broken collarbone suffered in a 44-37 loss to Academy on Sept. 18. He had rushed for 288 yards and four touchdowns on 36 carries.

Jump also had a fumble recovery at linebacker against London. For the season, he has 683 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 82 carries.

Quarterback Andre Readey has rushed for 399 yards and four touchdowns on 61 carries. He also has completed 25 of 57 passes for 491 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions.
