BEREA — Johnny Manziel, so full of swagger and cool, understands his limitations. He's only a rookie.

And as the celebrity quarterback prepares for Cleveland's exhibition on Monday night in Washington, a game that could decide whether he or Brian Hoyer starts the season opener at Pittsburgh on Sept. 7, Manziel acknowledged he's still got a lot to learn.

"I don't think I'm ready for Pittsburgh right now," he said.

SPENCERVILLE — Spencerville showed a balanced attack in its first live pre-season scrimmage, getting three touchdown passes in tying Shawnee 18-18 on a brilliant Friday morning at Spencerville’s Charles Moeller Memorial Stadium.

“We always like to scrimmage Shawnee. They are usually bigger and faster than we are, so it’s a good challenge for us to get ready for the regular season,” Bearcat coach John Zerbe said. “I was very happy with how hard we played and how enthusiastic we were from start to finish. That’s what you really like to see in the first scrimmage; coming out mentally and physically prepared to play an opponent. If you aren’t doing that, nothing else really matters.”

It started under sunny blue skies and ended under the lights at The Castle as the varsity teams battled to a scoreless draw.

The answers to the Blue Jays offensive struggles seemed to remain in the darkness for Coach Todd Schulte after the game.
