â€śI am very proud of our young men who received All-District recognition,â€ť Wapak varsity coach Doug Frye said. â€śThey had an outstanding season for us. They were a major factor in our teamâ€™s 10-win season.â€ť

With a nickname like the â€śMastodons,â€ť itâ€™s tough to go wrong.
Morgan Quellhorst knew that much as a freshman.
Quellhorst, a senior at Wapakoneta High School, signed her national letter of intent to play college basketball at Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne on Monday at Wapakoneta High School, honoring a verbal commitment she made as a sophomore.
â€śFreshman year, we went there for volleyball and we watched one of their games,â€ť Quellhorst said Monday. â€śAnd it was just so cool. It was big, and they had the Mastodon, and it was different.â€ť
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 Bulldogsâ€™ Doug Herrett was voted the district Player of the Year. The Coach of the Year was Bath Wildcatsâ€™ Jeremy Winegardner.
PIQUA â€” One-by-one, the Wapakoneta Redskins seniors stood before their younger teammates.
One-by-one, tears in their eyes, they told them, donâ€™t forget this feeling.
And donâ€™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 Piquaâ€™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.
Robert Vogel sometimes becomes distracted watching action films and television shows.
No, heâ€™s not disturbed by plotline loopholes or unrealistic dialogue.
The action hero during that big-budget shootout scene probably isnâ€™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.
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.
