CANFIELD - Alec Heldreth, a 6-foot-3, 218-pound Canfield senior defensive end had 3.5 tackles-for-loss this season against East, a school record.
Now, he takes his defensive skills to Lake Erie College. He chose Lake Erie over Walsh and Akron.
"It felt like home to me. It felt like Canfield," Heldreth said. "It's an up-and-coming program I'd like to be part of."
He'll always remember playing for the Cardinals and coach Mike Pavlansky.
"I'm always going to remember where I come from and who I played for, coach Pav, probably the best coach I played for in my life," Heldreth said.
