In Praise of Dan Gilbert.

Dan Gilbert and Koby Altman have done it again.

Just when you thought the Cavs were going to go into that quiet night and put an end to a challenging
season they pull off a move that once again puts the Cavs in a position to get back into the playoffs-
sooner rather than later.

Hard Work Pays Off For Gadd

What makes a coach special is when it's obvious that he or she has a positive effect affect on the student athlete that reaches outside the boundary of the playing surface. And when that is achieved that's when the kids run through the proverbial "brick wall" for them.

Football Season in Tuscarawas County Officially Begins

Football season in Tuscarawas County officially begins with the Times Reporter All Star Football Game. It's mood setter for Friday nights in the fall, and scratches that football itch fans get after the NFL draft. It is all so the last time some of the area's best will ever put on the pads again. Some will go play football at the next level and some have put other goals at a bigger priority for their future, it is especially meaningful for them.

Aaliyah Currence: HUMBLE AND HUNGRY

Since I started covering High School sports the toughest thing to do was to cover my daughter and be able to portray her success without giving off the impression of being biased. If anything I went out of my way to make sure that never was the case which probably did her a disservice in the end. As I was writing the blog last week for the first time I just stepped back and took a look at her career taking dad out of the equation. And without a doubt, if I looked at it through just a media persons eyes, Aaliyah Currence would be at the top of the list for people I would want to interview for their successes on and off the field.

END OF AN ERA...Strasburg's tremendous twosome

To be one of the two best players on the team, not just in one sport, but three. To have the other best player be your twin brother, not just in one of those sports, but again all three. Add in consistent team success (including making the state tournament in golf), honor roll students, and complete respect from coaches, teacher, and peers, well it seems kind of fairytale-ish.
