SOCCER: Faller named all-state, all-district

November 14, 2011

Wapakoneta Redskins senior Andy Faller is adding to his growing list of honors.

After being named the Western Buckeye League boys soccer Player of the Year, Faller was selected Division II Second-Team All-State by the Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association and First-Team All-District by the Northwest Ohio Soccer Coaches Association on Friday.

Faller was the first Wapakoneta boys soccer player to ever be named the WBL Player of the Year.

Defiance Bulldogs’ Doug Herrett was voted the district Player of the Year. The Coach of the Year was Bath Wildcats’ Jeremy Winegardner.

FOOTBALL: Redskins bow out

November 12, 2011

PIQUA — One-by-one, the Wapakoneta Redskins seniors stood before their younger teammates.

One-by-one, tears in their eyes, they told them, don’t forget this feeling.

And don’t let it happen again.

One of the greatest seasons in Wapakoneta football history came to a conclusion Friday night as the Trotwood-Madison Rams handed the Redskins a 27-6 defeat in a Division II regional semifinal at Piqua’s Alexander Field.

Wapak ends its season with a 10-2 record. The 2011 Redskins were just the third team in school history to win 10 games and the second to win a playoff game.

Wapak man wins international shooting title

Robert Vogel sometimes becomes distracted watching action films and television shows.
No, he’s not disturbed by plotline loopholes or unrealistic dialogue.
The action hero during that big-budget shootout scene probably isn’t holding his gun correctly to pull off that big move.
Vogel, a St. Marys native and a world-class competitive practical shooter and gun expert, notices things like that.

Blue chip vs blue collar Wapak opponent loaded with top athletes

Wapakoneta Redskins varsity football coach Doug Frye is old school.

The veteran coach isn’t a real flashy guy, and his players reflect that.

Go to work.  Do your job.

Then there is Maurice Douglass, the head man on the Trotwood-Madison Rams’ sideline.  In between stints playing for the NFL’s Chicago Bears and New York Giants he worked as an exotic dancer.  His wardrobe once earned him a comparison with musician Prince.

No one has ever compared Frye to Prince.

AP Source: Paterno to retire at end of season

UPDATED: 11:01 a.m.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State football coach Joe Paterno will retire at the end of the season, his long and illustrious career brought down because he failed to do all he could about an allegation of child sex abuse against a former assistant.

"This is a tragedy," Paterno said. "It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more."
