Reggie Williams (Class of 1959) Article from OrrViews

Thought I'd post this for out-of-towners and those that don't get to read OrrViews.

It's from the July 15th issue and focuses on Orrville Class of '59 grad (and Orrville Sports Hall of Fame inductee) Mr. Reggie Williams. I'll let the article speak for itself, but wanted to point out what a great bit of depth is contained in this. Mr. Williams speaks of his upbringing in a single-parent household in Orrville, his days as a Red Rider under Coach Bill Shunkwiler and the numerous teachers, friends and other Orrvillites who befriended him through his adolescence and beyond.

There's so much more to mention, but take a minute and read the's worth your time.

Ohio High School Football Coaches to Honor Tressel? Really??

I haven't been paying too much attention recently, but over the weekend, I caught wind of this idea being proposed by the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association.

Basically, the plan is to "honor" former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel by having every Ohio high school football coach (that's right, all 700+ of them) don a white shirt and tie while roaming the sidelines in week 1 of the 2011 season.

My thoughts are mixed, but I think it's a bad idea.
