AHS grads contribute

for KSU in scrimmage

Aurora High graduate Anthony Melchiori kicked field goals of 40 and 37 yards, while AHS graduate Jake McVay intercepted a pass in Kent State University's spring jersey scrimmage April 19.

"There were a lot of good things and a lot of things we have to work on," said head coach Paul Haynes. "I liked the enthusiasm on defense. They made a lot of plays. When you talk about [creating] turnovers, those were the things we didn't do very well last year. At least we got some today. On the flip side of that, we can't turn the ball over [on offense]."

KSU's spring game will be April 26 at 1 p.m. at Dix Stadium. The event is free and open to the public. "We'll finish out spring ball this week then play the spring game," said Haynes. "After that we'll tell the guys where they are at that point."
