To the ends of Ohio....

Good Luck Riders!!!!

Rider fans have really been all over the state of Ohio since the fall, following and supporting our teams in all sports....Ashland, Tiffin, Mansfield, Youngstown, Canton, Wooster, Cleveland, Lexington, Bellville.....and now the capital city of Columbus.

The tourney trail has been a great ride, wins over Black River, Hillsdale & Triway in Wooster...wins over Cleveland Central Catholic and Newton Falls in Canton...but now, in the city where we've claimed 3 state titles, we return after a 14 year absence, hoping to bring home a 4th state title.

To Coach Slaughter.  Thank you.  You've restored much needed respect to the program.

To Coaches Smith, Landis, Spurlock..and all the others at the lower levels & team managers, trainers and statisticians & cheerleaders...thank you for all your unrecognized time you've spent away from your families to dedicate to Orrville Basketball....and for your undying support.

To the players....Jake, Sam, Joey, Andre, Chase, Dillon, Zach, Max, Drew, Cody, Devon, Kyle, Jordan, Derek & AJ.....THIS is what Orrville basketball is all about.  You're all part of where this team is.  Represent your school and town with pride & class.  Play hard.  Play "hustle" ball for 32 minutes and beyond if necessary.  Respect your opponent, but don't be in awe of them.  Leave it all on the court.

Let's Go Riders!!!!
