Bowling For Sleepers: BGSU Grabs Farmington Silent-Assassin Playmaker Pettaway
Quietly killing the competition in Farmington is “Killer Cam.”
Ohio is now the destination for his lethal antics on the gridiron.
Bowling Green bagged a commitment from underrated Farmington High School senior running back Cameron Pettaway last week, giving the Ohio MAC program the definition of a diamond in the ruff for the upcoming recruiting class..
Pettaway (5-10, 175) led the OAA Blue in rushing last season as a junior with 1,186 yards and 26 touchdowns to go along with 455 yards catching the ball out of the backfield or lining up in the slot. This fall, he battled injuries, missing five games, but still managing to run for more than 500 yards and 9 scores. His final game as a prepster in Week 9 saw him shred the Utica defense for 206 yards and 3 trips to the end zone.
BGSU offered Pettaway following the 2022 campaign. He did his offseason training and played his spring and summer 7-on-7 with the Rising Stars Academy. Farmington struggled without Pettway in the mix for half the season in ’23, finishing 2-7. Pettaway took the ’22 squad into the playoffs and the club went 6-4.
“You can’t teach the kind of explosiveness, the kind of versatility Cam exhibits, BG got itself a special player that not enough people know about yet,” Farmington head coach Jason Albrecht said.
