Breinz will continue gridiron passion in college
March 29, 2018


On Friday (March 23), Canfield High School senior running back Paul Breinz signed his letter of intent to continue his football career this fall as a Panther with the Ohio Dominican University football team.

Breinz is coming off a great season, earning several honors as a senior and co-captain. He was named First Team All League Defensive Back, First Team All Northeast Ohio, and Third Team All State.

Breinz started his football career at age six when he joined the Canfield Little Cardinals 95-pound team. From that time forward, not a year went by that he wasn't playing organized football.

"I wouldn't stop running," he said.

He continued with the Little Cards until middle school, when he joined that team and continued through high school. As a senior co-captain he was an important team player.

"He is a great young man who is very unselfish," said CHS Football Head Coach Mike Pavlansky. "We'll use Paul as an example of what a Canfield High School football player should be like for years to come."

At Ohio Dominican, Breinz said he is going to major in business, but not sure what specific field yet. One of the things he likes about Ohio Dominican is the fact it has a good young coaching staff that makes him feel comfortable. It may help ease the one thing he will miss about CHS.

"I will miss my teammates, coaches and friends," he said. "It has truly been like one big family here."
