COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Michael Warren, a running back who piled up 2,740 yards and 45 touchdowns for Toledo Central Catholic this season, is the 30th annual winner of the Ohio Associated Press Mr. Football award.

The 5-foot-10, 210-pound senior capped one of the finest careers for a back in Ohio high school history, rolling up 7,619 yards and 105 touchdowns in leading Toledo Central Catholic to a 50-7 overall record in his four seasons.

Warren was chosen in balloting by a statewide panel of sports writers.

The Fighting Irish finished 13-1 this season and advanced to the state Division III semi-final game. Behind Warren's running, the school won the state championship in 2014 and was runner-up last season.

The highly sought recruit has committed to play college ball for the hometown Toledo Rockets.

Lynn Bowden of Warren Harding and Alonzo Booth of Columbus DeSales tied for second in the Mr. Football voting with 10 points apiece. Bowden had two first-place votes, Booth none.
