(11-7-17) St. Henry alum Jim Lachey has a big smile on his face tonight, two of his sons have been named to the All-Central District D VI high school football team.

Grandview Heights’ James Lachey (6’4 234 Senior), for the second year in a row, was named the Central District D VI Defensive Player of the Year, the Senior was also named to the first team as a defensive end. Lachey who was recently invited to play in the NoKaOi Senior Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii, will play his football next fall at Bowling Green.

Lachey’s younger brother Luke (6’6 185 Sophomore) was named to the first team as a receiver.

The two Lachey’s start on both sides of the football, James was the Bobcats’ QB/TE on offense and Luke is a defensive back.

When the Bobcats starting QB was injured in early October James took over at QB and it paid off , in a 28-0 win over Logan Elm 28-0 in the final home game of the season, James threw a 73-yard touchdown pass to Luke.

James told This Week Sports about the play:

“You could see on film that he didn’t think I could air it out that far, and I let it loose and you could see him running hard to get underneath it. He made a great catch and took off. My parents loved it. I had like 30-some relatives there in the middle of the stands. They were freaking out.”

Now you see why Dad Jim is grinning from ear to ear.
