'Bellefontaine Examiner' All-area football team


Alex Jacobs, Indian Lake


Brandon Henderson, Indian Lake


Senior QB Alex Jacobs ignited an explosive Indian Lake offense to a record-setting and historic campaign this fall. Jacobs repeated as the Central Buckeye Conference Mad River division offensive player of the year and was a second-team all-Southwest District selection. The senior finished the regular season second in the CBC in passing and ended the entire season completing 116-of-201 passes for 1,895 yards. He had 28 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Jacobs led the CBC in rushing during the regular season and capped the 12-game season with 1,387 yards and 19 touchdowns on 134 carries.


Senior Brandon Henderson was the best player on the area’s best defense this fall. A linebacker, Henderson was selected as the Central Buckeye Conference Mad River defensive player of the year, was a first-team all-district selection and a second-team Division IV all-Ohio choice. Henderson piled up 96 tackles during the regular season, including 33 solo stops. He also forced two fumbles, recovered a fumble and had two sacks. He anchored a defense that allowed just an average of 9.1 points per game and helped the program earn its first ever undefeated regular season.
