Here's that Scoreboard Video from Football Season

Call it an early Christmas present.

I feel bad for not getting this ready in time for the football banquet a few weeks ago, but I just didn't have the time to dedicate to it. 

But it's done now, and I hope you enjoy.  It's not the EXACT version, but it's the same song and the 90% of the pictures are the same too.

The video is embedded below.

Mason Monheim verbals to Illinois

Will have more on this later, but just got the word & wanted to share it with Red Rider Nation.

Mason Monheim, the 2-time OCC defensive player of the year and 2-time 1st team All-Ohioan, gave his verbal commitment to the University of Illinois and new coach Tim Beckman today.

Congrats to Mason & his family on a well deserved honor. Couldn't happen to a nicer young man. Illinois is getting a winner with a great work ethic and attitude.

This is now the 3rd Red Riders in 3 years to commit to a Big10 school. Chase Hoobler was the first (to Indiana) in 2009, then Max Pirman (to Nebraska) in 2010, and now Mason.

All happen to be linebackers...a credit to LB coach Jason Haley and a credit to head coach Doug Davault for the continued exposure he brings to the football program.

Thanks to the Monheim family for keeping me in the loop all through the recruiting process & to Mason himself for letting me know the news of his verbal.

Some Catching Up To Do...

Apologize for the absence lately, but I kind of needed a battery recharge.  I'm going to do as much catching up as I can in one post.  Winter Sports Season is in the early stages, the Smitty Classic is this weekend, and there's been some turnover among the ranks of the Ohio Cardinal Conference football coaching fraternity.

So let's hit it...

Oh, and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you.  Another great year of being a Red Rider!!
