CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Kenston Bombers took home the Division III high school football championship with a 42-6 win over Kettering Archbishop Alter, but the team had other reasons to celebrate.

Sanders, who used to be a trainer for the team, kicked a total of six extra-point field goals at the game held at Canton’s Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium on Friday.
