Mrs. Stoffer â€” the unsung hero of the Wapakoneta Redskins 2011 football team.
Years ago she told a young, impressionable Doug Frye, â€śGood, better, best. Never let it rest until your good is better and your better is best.â€ť
Frye never forgot the words of his sixth-grade English teacher and passed them on to his young charges.
â€śI think our kids have to understand that what we did this year was a step in the right direction,â€ť the Redskins varsity coach said. â€śBut it wasnâ€™t the ultimate accomplishment.â€ť
A step in the right direction indeed.
Two years ago, the Redskins went 1-9.
The party has started in Elida.
It started early in Friday nightâ€™s game.
The Bulldogs are headed to the Division III football state semifinals after dominating the Columbus Eastmoor Academy Warriors 37-10.
It was all about the defense as Elida held Eastmoorâ€™s power rushing attack to just 44 yards and sacked quarterback David valdez nine times.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) â€” The 2011 Associated Press Northwest All-District football teams based on the recommendations of a media panel:
The awards continue to pile in for the Wapakoneta Redskins varsity football team.
Four Redskins seniors were named to the Division II First Team when the All-Northwest District awards were announced Thursday evening.
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
On the offensive side of the ball, senior right guard Chris Schwartz was named the district co-offensive lineman of the year.
