An unlikely preseason candidate, Baughman was outstanding, passing for 3,079 yards and adding 1,523 yards rushing for Division II Wadsworth, which went 10-0 in the regular season and 11-1 overall. He accounted for 56 touchdowns. He had just three interceptions in 331 passes.
A two-time state runner-up and three-time state placer, Baughman has signed with the University of Virginia to wrestle. Ohio State was among his wrestling offers.
