It has been a long time since my last post. I will now be much more consistent with this. Here we are so close to the end of the regular season in College football. High School football is already in playoff mode. It seems that every year when September hits the rest of the year flies by.
We have had some outstanding performances this year from so many young men and women. Thats right I said women. Alana Gaither from Firestone High School near Akron, OH set the record for the longest field goal by a female not just in the state of Ohio but Nationally. We have other career performances as well. It seems this passed weekend was titled "Lets one up Coach Tim". I say that smiling of course. JD Detmer kicked a 58 yard field goal this passed weekend. That is 1 yard further than my longest. As well Caleb Keeton from my Alma Mater, Waynesville High School, kicked his 7th field goal of the year as they lost to Jonathon Alder in the first round of the OHSAA Playoffs. The most I had in a season in High School was 6, 3 times.
I am looking very forward to the rest of the season especially in College. Derek Dimke from the University of Illinois is having a fantastic year as well as Devin Barclay and Jake Rogers from a field goal perspective. We are also very excited to watch future stars such as Drew Basil, Ohio State and Carey Spear at Vanderbilt. Both of these young men start as Kickoff Specialists as TRUE FRESHMEN.
That is all for today. Have a great day and we will check back in tomorrow.
