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

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 […]

The third time proved to be the charm for The Daily Record All-Star Softball Game, which was finally held Thursday at The College of Wooster’s softball field. The girls selected to play in the nine-inning game did so with lots of enthusiasm, the crowd was good and, believe it or not, the weather was perfect. […]

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 […]

We’re in the middle of the track and field postseason, and I’ve witnessed several false starts — some by local standouts. It seems a little unfair that after all the hard work and dedication an athlete puts into their craft, one misstep can be the difference between going on and going home. I know thinclads […]

As the high school sports season for 2010 – 2011 is coming to an end, I can’t help but think back through the year and have to say overall it was yet another successful season for all area schools and their respective sport programs. Another great crop of seniors are going through the halls for […]

Perfect weather, perfect seats at Progressive Field. A sweet young lady by the name of Sarah Turner delivered a stirring (if a bit drawn out) version of the National Anthem. Then Mitch Talbot threw his first pitch, Jacoby Ellsbury lined it up the middle, and it was all downhill from there. By the time the […]

The area is down to 5 baseball teams left in the OHSAA tournament and just 2 softball teams. I had a chance to watch an impressive showing by Rittman today, beating Windham 8-0 at Copley in a Barberton District semifinal. Lance Horner struck out 15 in a one-hitter as he hit 88 mph on the […]
