Centlivre made impact on both sides of ball for Saints

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 12:01 am
Bishop Dwenger continues to sport an unblemished record and ranks No. 2 in Class 4A, all without its biggest target on offense.Senior Keenan Centlivre, who suffered a broken collarbone while diving to make a catch against Concordia Lutheran in Week 2, had successful surgery Friday but will miss the remainder of the season.

“It was a bad break … he needed six screws,” Bishop Dwenger coach Chris Svarczkopf said. “They said the recovery time would be around six to eight weeks from the surgery.”

At 6-foot-6 and 212 pounds, Centlivre was a match-up nightmare on the outside at wide receiver, with 6-3 Ryan Watercutter manning the other side of the field.

The Saints (5-0, 4-0 SAC) have needed other wide receivers to step up in victories over North Side, Northrop and Cincinnati LaSalle over the last three weeks, but still miss what Centlivre brought to the table.

“It is tough to replace the size and blocking ability of a guy like Keenan,” Svarczkopf said. “He was a very good defensive end for us as well.”

The Saints are deep at wide receiver with junior Marcus Stepp and senior Gabriel Espinoza among those who have helped lessen the blow of the loss of Centlivre.

The running game has also picked up with Tyler Tippman and Ryan Cinadr behind quarterback Mike Fiacable.

Centlivre's football career is not at an end despite the season-ending injury. Last summer he accepted an invitation from Notre Dame to join the program under preferred walk-on status next season.

“It is a great opportunity for him,” Svarczkopf said.

Bishop Dwenger hosts Wayne (3-2) at 7 p.m. Friday at Zollner Stadium.
