In the postgame rush of interviews, then getting back to the office to start the 1 1/2 hr. whirlwind that includes up to seven of us working on stories, then putting it all together in the Saturday Sports Extra, it’s not until everything’s done for another week that I have a chance to really think […]

It’s crunch time for area high school football teams with Week 8 games to be played Friday night. I spoke recently with College of Wooster professor Drew Pasteur, whose website www.fantastic50.net, does a great job of sorting out the playoff probabilities. Here are Pasteur’s takes on the playoff outlooks for five of the area teams […]

Seems like the Browns’ time off between games has been way too long — guess when you get drilled in your last outing, as Cleveland did in a loss to Tennessee, that will happen. Heading to Oakland, Browns coach Pat Shurmur said he’s using the bye week to reassess everything, a smart move considering the […]

Changes, we definitely need changes at Ohio State. I can’t stand watching the tube on Saturday’s and seeing the slop we are putting on the field and slop off the field. At some point someone needs to say enough. No. 1 – Good-bye DeVier Posey, Dan “Boom” Herron, Melvin Fellows and the rest of the […]

To use No. 40 or not to use the beast, AKA Peyton Hillis. It’s a weird question and I can’t honestly believe that Pat Shurmur has to even sit down, watch film and agonize over it. I understand that the Browns want to sling the ball all over the field and maybe someday when they […]

The undefeated, No. 2-ranked Div. III Dalton volleyball team is the top area squad to watch heading into the postseason. The WCAL champion Bulldogs (20-0, 12-0), who have a pair of league matches to wrap up the regular season this week, should get the top seed at the Div. III Smithville Sectional-District draw Sunday. I’d […]

So lately I have heard the rumors and have tried to ignore them. Seriously, Norwayne vs. Orrville? I understand both sides’ arguments of how this wouldn’t be a contest or how it would be so interesting to see. Well, I decided to weigh in with my opinion for what its worth to all The Daily […]

What a fall this has been so far for girls soccer. I mean the obvious hasn’t changed, but the people inside it have, or should I say they seem to have become more desperate. I guess this is what happens when one program, aka, the Chippewa girls soccer team, dominates their league year after year. […]

Getting ready to tape another edition of The Daily Record High School Football Insider for our website. Since acquiring the equipment, the former photo department upstairs here has been converted into a studio, and every Thursday afternoon for the past few weeks, sports editor Aaron Dorksen and myself have made the trek up there to […]
