FOOTBALL: Redskins built on success in 2011

November 19, 2011

Mrs. Stoffer — the unsung hero of the Wapakoneta Redskins 2011 football team.

Years ago she told a young, impressionable Doug Frye, “Good, better, best. Never let it rest until your good is better and your better is best.”

Frye never forgot the words of his sixth-grade English teacher and passed them on to his young charges.

A step in the right direction indeed.

Two years ago, the Redskins went 1-9.

Akron, Ohio, resident Helen Weyrick has been using the same shortening-based recipe for her pie crust for more than 60 years. But lately, she said she has been frustrated with it.
