    Pickerington North defeated Dublin Coffman 29-27. Sawyer was outstanding on both sides of the ball. On offense he had two touchdown passes and ran for a third in leading the Panthers to the come from behind win. On defense Sawyer had a sack and a huge fumble recovery in the backfield.

    Week 1: Pickerington North at Olentangy Liberty

    Player: Jack Sawyer

    Position: Defensive end

    Recruitment: Committed to Ohio State

    Stat line: 14 Total Tackles, 6.5 Tackles for Loss, and 5 Sacks

    Five-star 2021 Ohio State defensive end commit Jack Sawyer has been on a tear through the first four weeks of his junior season and it all got started week one.

    Olentangy Liberty was fresh off a state final four run in 2018 and featured three-star Northwestern commit Ben Wrather along the offensive line. All of that meant nothing to Sawyer, who went on to record five sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss in the first game of his junior year.

    Sawyer has a very unique level of athleticism which was on full display against the Patriots. He used that athleticism to beat opposing offensive tackles around the corner with ease a number of times. However, the most eye-catching thing about Sawyers game were his refined techniques.

    Though he is only a junior in high school, hie uses his hands like a seasoned veteran. One play in particular sticks out and that was when he used a tight spin move to slide passed the left tackle for a sack to close out the first half.

    While there is still plenty of time until Sawyer suits up for the Buckeyes, as he's just a junior, he has all the makings of an instant-impact player. In the meantime, Sawyer still has to work on adding weight and muscle to prepare himself for the college game along with continuing to refine his pass-rushing skillset.

    I'm just not seeing this kid a the next Bosa or Young... Reminds me more of a Sam Hubbard type. I think he'll be very good for us, but don't think he's top 5 draft pick level.

    Jack Sawyer injures knee, will require surgery
    The Buckeyes top-ranked 2021 commitment — and one of the country’s premier junior prospects — suffered a torn MCL in his left knee on Friday night and will require surgery to repair it.

    The injury occurred while the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Pickerington North star was lined up at quarterback, a position he’s played this season for the Panthers because that’s what his team needed him to do this season.

    “I just want us to win, so I’ll do whatever it takes,” Sawyer told Lettermen Row when his position shift happened in September. “Our starter kind of got hurt, and he’s a really good safety who converted to quarterback this season. I think my coaches are going to keep me there this year so we can get some wins, and then still put me in on defense on passing downs.”

    Sawyer’s upcoming surgery will avoid some of the major complications that often accompany knee injuries and that should allow for a complete recovery but he will miss his upcoming basketball season at Pickerington North.

    JACK SAWYER, 2021 FIVE-STAR DEFENSIVE END
    Five-star defensive end Jack Sawyer, a 2021 commit, suffered a torn left MCL in the last game of his junior year while being the ultimate team player by playing quarterback for Pickerington North. Now two months removed from surgery, Sawyer is off crutches with the help of an extensive recovery routine and a good-sized knee brace. As a matter of fact, Sawyer was able to do some weight lifting this past week, putting up some good weight in both the deadlift and squat. While Sawyer is still quite a few steps away from being fully recovered, he is working tirelessly to be 100 percent by at least the beginning of his senior season.
