COLUMBUS — Rashid SeSay’s ability is easy to see on the gridiron.
The West Muskingum senior needs little space to make a big play, no matter the opponent.
His memorable season landed him another accolade on Tuesday, as SeSay shared the Division V State Offensive Player of the Year honor with Germantown Valley View’s Caden Henson.

The Division IV and V teams were selected by the Ohio Prep Sportswriter Association, with Division II and III to be released on Wednesday.
SeSay totaled 1,060 yards and 27 TDs on 136 carries and 28 catches for 454 yards with eight scores, while throwing a pair of TDs and returning two kickoffs for scores in the regular season. He even made 55 tackles and had a pick six to highlight his defensive contributions.
The All-Ohio first team running back also finished the season by scoring a Muskingum Valley League record of 42 TDs.

It’s another accomplishment for SeSay, and a source of “pride” for West M coach Nate Brownrigg and the program.
“I’m proud of the work he has done over the past four years and proud of his performance on the field (one of the best ever),” Brownrigg said. “I’m proud of the leader and teammate he is and proud of the young man and person he is – humble. He’s the first to credit his teammates and offensive line for his accomplishments. He has been a great example of the values of our program and set new standards for what can be accomplished.”
A combination of dedication and humility kept SeSay working. Those traits were among the reasons he continued his rise.
