On a random Friday night in early September, a couple of Penn State’s top 2022 commits re-wrote county history books.
Four-star Pennsylvania running back Nicholas Singleton broke an all-time county rushing record, and four-star quarterback Drew Allar threw for 523 yards (and scored five touchdowns) to set a single-game county record of his own in Medina High School’s 38-27 win over Stow-Monroe Falls High School in Ohio prep football.

Allar’s (6-foot-5, 228 pounds) electric senior season has gotten off to a quick start, having set another Medina County record last week against Wadsworth High School with his 57 career passing touchdown. In four games this season, Allar has thrown for roughly 1,300 yards scored 15 total touchdowns.
Coming off a 2,962 yard, 26 touchdown junior season, Allar is primed to soar to even greater heights as a senior on an undefeated Medina team.
Allar is the 92nd-ranked recruit in the nation, according to 247Sports, slotting in as the seventh-ranked quarterback and the fourth-ranked recruit from Ohio. Rivals rates him as the 195th-ranked recruit in the class, slotting him as the 11th-ranked quarterback and the seventh-ranked recruit from Ohio.
