Five Mayfield Football players have officially made commitments to continue their education and athletic careers at the collegiate level.
Marco Tramontano: Notre Dame College
Marco started 9 games his freshman year and every game thereafter for the remainder of his career. This Western Reserve Conference and All-District Defensive Player of the year was a force on the field and a leader by example off. His work ethic, which earned him 1st team all-state, was par for the course for this senior class but nothing that Mayfield has seen in many years. Marco, a highly recruited Division 2 football player, will now make Notre Dame College lucky to watch him play football for the next 4 years. Marco plans to major in nursing.
Joey Suchy: Butler University
Joey played varsity football as a freshman and was a mainstay on defense until this season when he took the reigns as the starting running back for the undefeated Wildcats. Joey, a 1st team all-district honoree, and an All-WRC player is an academic force in the classroom as well and was a captain on the football field. His future as a Butler Bulldog is bright and we look forward to watching him in the future. Congratulations to Joey Suchy on continuing his career at Butler University where he will major in engineering.
Clay Cunningham: Edinboro University
A standout 2nd team all-state and All-WRC player Clay Cunningham could be one of the toughest players to put on a Wildcat uniform in a long time. Clay possessed an old school football mentality. Clay was fearless on the field and a leader off of it. He would do anything asked of him and his selflessness led our team to one of the best seasons in school history. Clay is making the Fighting Scots of Edinboro his home for the next 4 years and they have no clue the type of culture change they are in for when he arrives on campus. In the fall, Clay will attend Edinboro University where he will major in special education.
Nick Cunningham: Walsh University
Nick was the glue to a stingy Wildcat defense that arguably could go down as one of the best ever. Nick was a coach on the field and recognized as an All-WRC player. His calm demeanor off the field turned into a nasty, violent defensive mainstay for the Wildcats the past 2 seasons. As a captain, Nick was another leader by example that the Wildcats followed in 2019. His departure from Mayfield is sad for the Wildcats but lucky for the Walsh University Cavaliers, where he will also help change the culture of their defense for the next 4 seasons. Nick will attend Walsh University where he will major in biology.
Joey Isabella: Duquense University
One of the most dynamic and explosive players in recent history, Joey Isabella, will be difficult to replace in a Wildcat uniform. His game-breaking speed, and ability to score on any given play was exciting to watch and on display with 2 amazing touchdowns vs Chardon, and single-handedly torching Kenston’s vaunted secondary all night long. This All-WRC and 1st team all-district honoree will be making the Duquesne Dukes very happy for the next four seasons. Joey will attend Duquesne University where he will major in education.
