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 […]

It’s Miller time

It’s Miller time

College football fans used to make fun of Ohio State’s passing game back in Woody Hayes’ era — but that was because the Buckeyes ran the ball down everyone’s throat. Then, against Michigan or in a bowl game, when the Buckeyes would, God forbid, have to pass, they usually couldn’t. Today’s game has changed since […]

Tribe hung in there

Tribe hung in there

Even when the Indians started the season 30-15, and even though they play in what might be MLB’s worst division, I still didn’t expect the Tribe to hang around in the race as long as they have. Especially considering all the injuries, there were times when I don’t know if the big-league club could have […]

Imagine how the players felt

Imagine how the players felt

In all my years covering football games, I don’t think I’ve ever felt heat more oppressive than it was the past few days. Thursday I was at the Scots’ opener, when they hosted Baldwin-Wallace, and the temp inside the press box at John P. Papp Stadium had to be at least 100 degrees, with humidity […]

Norwayne players take the ImPACT test that will give team doctors a baseline report should they suffer a concussion.

Norwayne has proactive approach to concussion testing

| August 5, 2011 | 0 Comments

Kudos to the  Norwayne football team for taking a proactive approach to dealing with concussions. Instead of starting out the 2011 season with footballs flying through the air, Bobcats coach Joe Harbour let the trainers from Wooster’s HealthPoint take over to run an NFL-style combine that included ImPACT concussion testing. Perhaps the most thorough football […]

The view from the $8 seats at the Pelicans game in Myrtle Beach.

Minor League games have something for everyone

| July 23, 2011 | 0 Comments

Recently my fiancé and I went on vacation to Ocean Isle, N.C. While there, we made the 40-minute drive to Myrtle Beach and took in a Pelicans Minor League Baseball game. The Pelicans are the advanced Single-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers. For our game, the promotion was “Wizard Night,” in conjunction with Harry Potter, […]

early WCAL football preview

| July 12, 2011 | 0 Comments

Although July is traditionally the month during which sports writers — particularly those covering mostly high school sports and those getting up their in age (and I fit both categories) — we’ve been kicking around ideas for the DR football preview. While I’m not quite ready to dive into that work — I’m in summer […]

After eight years (and one day) my time is finally over here in the sports world at The Daily Record. Hard to believe. When I was talking to Art when he called me tonight, I have spent more time with him in the past eight years than I have my husband. It will be an […]

Billker one and done at Dalton

| July 4, 2011 | 0 Comments

Shawn Billker’s surprise resignation Thursday as the Dalton football coach came after he said he had a “once-in-a-lifetime” chance to go back to North Canton Hoover. Billker was chosen out of a field of 60 applicants to take the Dalton job after HOFer Bob Ramsay retired, but coached there just one year before going back […]
