Johnson suits up for Vancouver Canadians

| June 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

Matthew Johnson , an Orrville and COW grad, has been assigned to Toronto Blue Jays’ Class-A Vancouver Canadians team in British Columbia. I’ll have more on him in my Sunday D.R. column. No, he wasn’t involved in the Vancouver Canucks crazy fans’ riot, but he did get to drive by and see the aftermath. The Vancouver […]

The past few weeks have been about as bad as they can get for sports fans here in NE Ohio — and when the years without a championship is nearing the number that would qualify for a Golden Buckeye card, that’s saying a lot. The one program we could always count on, Ohio State football, […]

Whew!! Now that the high school sports seasons have finished I finally have time to do one of these fancy blogs. The high school football, boys basketball and girls basketball stats have been finished up and filed waiting on next season to start.  I feel like a school teacher at the end of the school […]

Barry Craddock Had a chance to watch the Wayne County Senior Legion baseball team (8-4) run-rule Tuscarawas County 12-2 Wednesday night. The local boys looked pretty good, with Triway graduate Derek Carmichael going 2-for-4 with a double and three-run homer and Rittman senior-to-be Dylan Litman notching the win. Dalton grad Jake Zeek hit two doubles during […]

I had an interesting conversation with Laurie Stiles, the Orrville Goodwill Store Manager, which finally prompted me to write this. In our conversation I told her that I like to talk about conterversial topics that make it interesting for all the readers to read. Something that draws the readers in and make them want to […]

Summer Spotlight on… Me!

| June 12, 2011 | 1 Comment

Every summer, The Daily Record Sports Staff scours the country side, or just Wayne and Holmes counties, for young athletes to feature in our Summer Spotlight section, which runs Thursdays. The questions are typed on a sheet of paper, and kids are asked to fill them out. Usually, they can whip through it with little […]

LeBron James rightfully says a win is the only statistic he cares about, but he’s going to have to put up much better numbers in the fourth quarter if the Heat are to save face and start their run of guaranteed titles. All the games so far have come down to the fourth quarter, with […]

OSU should drop Terrelle Pryor from team for good

OSU should drop Terrelle Pryor from team for good

| June 5, 2011 | 2 Comments

The scrutiny over what cars Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has driven, and just how many OSU players have participated in “Tattoogate” is obviously an ongoing investigation. Ohio State will likely be hit with harsh sanctions when the NCAA is scheduled to have its hearing with the Buckeyes Aug. 12 and Pryor’s eligibility could be […]

I’ve purposely waited a few days to comment about Ohio State, giving Jim Tressel enough time to clear out his office. Although we won’t know how hard the hammer’s going to hit the OSU football program until, at the earliest, its NCAA hearing on Aug. 12, I’ve already moved on. That’s what the Buckeyes have […]
