Mickey Mental remembers recruiting Devanaire Conliffe “Went to a lot of his basketball games,” said the Notre Dame College football coach. “We recruited our butts off going after Devanaire in high school.” Conliffe was a star receiver at Willoughby South four years ago. Mental — then NDC’s offensive coordinator — and the rest of the staff eventually lost out on Conliffe, who chose Ohio Dominican in Columbus.
Flash forward four years, and Conliffe is now at NDC after deciding to transfer so he can be closer to home and his family. His newest football family had one heck of a party on April 17 at Mueller Field in winning its third straight conference championship.
