AVON — Southwestern Conference coaching staffs already had Avon senior Ryan Maloy’s name circled in red and bolded at the top of their defensive game plans coming into the season.

The dual-threat quarterback threw for 2,666 yards and 21 touchdowns and rushed for 837 yards and 14 TDs last season in earning All-Ohio second-team honors.

Junior running back Nick Perusek rushed for 194 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the first half — finishing with 245 on 18 carries — as Avon made a statement in what was expected to be one of its toughest league matchups.
