FINDLAY, Ohio — Team Michigan defeated Team Ohio 27-14 in the first ever Michigan-Ohio Border Classic all-star football game Saturday at Donnell Stadium in Findlay, Ohio. The Daily Peninsula caught up with incoming Pitt freshman Avonte Maddox (Detroit Martin Luther King) after the game.
The 5-foot-9, 165-pound defensive back played wide receiver during the all-star game and took several runs and bubble screens around the edge for first downs. He also was a returner on special teams, nearly breaking a handful of punt returns for scores.
Maddox held offers from Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan, among a host of other Mid-American Conference schools, but he ultimately selected Pitt as his school of choice last summer.
