Celina's Tim Hamen To Be Inducted Into University of Findlay’s Athletic Hall of Fame

Photo Courtesy Of University of Findlay

The University of Findlay’s Athletic Hall of Fame will induct six former student athletes during a brunch to be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 17 at Winebrenner Theological Seminary’s TLB Auditorium.

Tim Hamen earned four letters in basketball at Findlay while twice serving as team captain. Hamen’s leadership is evidenced by his balance of 1,420 career points, eighteenth all-time at UF, and his 471 assists, third all-time for the Oilers. He was named Second Team All-Mid-Ohio Conference and honorable mention All-Great Lakes Region in 1994-95. In 1995-96, Hamen was named National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Division I honorable mention All-America, First Team All-Mid-Ohio Conference, and First Team All-Great Lakes Region. He earned honorable mention All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) honors in 1998-99.

Hamen was an accomplished student-athlete, receiving the Dana Scholar Award for Business in 1998 and earning National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II Academic All-America honors for 1998-99. The talented left-handed point guard lost a season to injury, but returned to complete four banner seasons. The Oilers posted an 85-36 record during Hamen’s career, including two appearances in the NAIA Division I national tournament, going 2-2. While he was a junior, the Oilers won the South Division during their inaugural season in the GLIAC.

Hamen can attribute his fine career to his philosophy, “It’s not the success that an athlete experiences but rather the challenges, the failures and the adversity that makes participating in sports so valuable.”

A technology project manager for Fidelity Information Systems in Indianapolis, Indiana, Hamen has also served as an independent consultant on technology initiatives in the financial services industry. He and his wife of eight years, Mishawna, reside in Indianapolis.

OHSAA Division VI State Title Football Game

Minster Wins Second Football State Championship, First Since 1989

story courtesy OHSAA


COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Minster Wildcats won in dramatic fashion Friday afternoon at Ohio Stadium, rallying from a nine point deficit with 4:18 remaining to win its second OHSAA state football championship, 46-42, over Kirtland. Minster has won 28 OHSAA team state championships as a school, tied for seventh all-time. The Wildcats’ first OHSAA football state championship came 25 years ago, the last time the OHSAA state football championships were held at Ohio Stadium. Minster defeated McDonald 16-7 to win that game. Kirtland was playing in its fourth-consecutive state championship, earning two state titles and two state runner-up honors in that time. “What a cool deal. That was two really good football teams competing,” said Minster head coach Geron Stokes. “It came down to the last second. Credit Kirtland. What a run for those guys. They're as tough and physical a team as we've played all year. Credit our kids and the resiliency they showed. We did not belong here early on in the year. This is the most improvement I've seen out of a team, a group of kids that bought into being better. This is awesome.”

Kirtland held a 21-20 lead at halftime after exchanging five lead changes with Minster in the first half. Minster regained the lead with 9:49 left in the third quarter with a 22 yard pass from Josh Nixon to Eli Wolf. Kirtland would respond, heading into the fourth quarter with a 28-27 lead after a nine yard pass from Sam Skiljan to Evan Madden. With 4:18 remaining, Kirtland extended its lead to 42-33 after Adam Hess scored from three yards out on his second rushing touchdown of the game. With 1:56 to go, Minster’s Evan Huelsman scored from two yards out. Trailing 42-40, Minster attempted an onside kick, which was recovered by junior kicker Jason Schultz. On second down, Nixon found Eli Wolf for a 51 yard touchdown that would prove to be the game winning play for the Wildcats.

Minster junior quarterback Josh Nixon finished 26 of 41 passing, 417 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. Sophomore receiver Bryce Schmiesing and senior receiver Eli Wolf led the Wildcats in receiving. Schmiesing totaled seven catches, 150 yards and one touchdown, while Wolf added nine receptions for 145 yards and three touchdowns.

Kirtland was led by senior running back Adam Hess. Hess, who finished with 181 yards and two touchdowns in the 2013 Division VI state championship, carried the ball 39 times for 164 yards and two touchdowns Friday. Kirtland senior quarterback Sam Skiljan finished 7-of-14 for 145 yards and three touchdowns. The Hornets were led in receiving by senior Matthew Finkler, who finished with four catches, 120 yards and two touchdowns.

With Minster’s state championship, the Midwest Athletic Conference has now claimed 108 OHSAA state championships.

The attendance for the 2014 OHSAA Division VI state championship was 7,361.

State Representative Jim Buchy Comments On Native American Mascot Issue

Photo Provided By Mr. Buchy's Office
(9-10-14) We requested a comment from State Representative Jim Buchy of Ohio's 84th House District on the Native American Mascot Issue. Ohio is reported to have the most High Schools represented with Native American mascots and logos.

Mr. Buchy replied in an email to us:

"In West Central Ohio we are lucky to have some of the best schools in the state, and year in and year out, we seem to always have several sports teams that win state championships. The effort of our athletes to succeed is a testament to the struggles and triumphs of Native Americans as they fought for the Northwest Territory. The Native Americans are such a part of the history in our area; it is fitting that our local athletes continue to pay tribute to that heritage."

The issue has intensified across the US with the recent battle between the NFL's Washington franchise and Native American groups looking to have the team change it's mascot.

National leaders are asking for a change as well, while across the US media sources will discontinue using the mascot "Redskins" when talking about the Washington team.

There are three area school's that have the same mascot as Washington, including; St. Henry, Wapakoneta and Ft. Loramie to name three.

This past week Colorado lawmakers will be considering a bill that could force local high schools to change their mascots.

According to the bill:

Schools that use nicknames based on Native American names or imagery must seek tribes’ permission or lose funding under a bill proposed by a Colorado lawmaker.

CLICK HERE - Rolfes steps into 'great situation' at Northwest

News release from Northwest:

Jared Rolfes has been named the new head varsity football coach at Northwest Guilford High School. He replaces Joe Woodruff, who is leaving Northwest to take the head football coaching position at Big Rapids High School in Michigan.

During the 2013 season, Coach Rolfes served as the offensive coordinator for 3AA football power Northern Guilford High School. For the previous five seasons, he was the head coach of his high school alma mater at Celina High School in Celina, Ohio. At Celina, Coach Rolfes took over a football program that traditionally struggled to win and led them to their first winning season in ten years in 2010. In 2012 Celina went 7-3, which was the best performance for the Celina football team since the 1998, and was undefeated at home for the first time since 1995. During the five year period that Coach Rolfes was head coach at Celina, many long standing records were broken, integrity and character became the foundation of the program, and program stability has been maintained even since his departure.

Before taking over at Celina, Jared served as an assistant football coach at Waubonsie High School in Aurora, Illinois along with coaching stints at West Jefferson High School in West Jefferson, Ohio and Leo High School in Leo, Indiana. He is a graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University and received his masters in Educational Leadership and Administration at Bowling Green University.

There will be a meeting on Monday 5/5 at 4pm in the media center for anyone interested in playing football at Northwest High next school year. Coach Rolfes will be in attendance to introduce himself and give an overview of his vision for the program.

Coach Rolfes will also be in attendance at the football booster club meeting on Tuesday 5/3 at 7pm in the Media center. Any football parents and community members are invited to attend.

New Bremen To Remain In MAC

(2-5-14) - Statement from New Bremen Superintendent Howard Overman
After much discussion and weighing other options the New Bremen Schools will remain affiliated with Midwest Athletic Conference for all sanctioned sports. The number of football players is down due to smaller class sizes, but should be adequate to fulfill the conference obligations. The community and school have rallied around the team and will support their competitive efforts in the MAC.

Springfield Public Schools has named Michael K. Mauk as head football coach for Glendale High School.

Mauk joins the GHS Falcons after 31 years at Kenton High School in Ohio.

MAC Commissioner Comments On New Bremen Situation

The Midwest Athletic Conference Constitution and By-Laws include an article which prohibits member schools from picking and choosing which sports they participate in, within the Conference. It is rather clear; if you have a varsity sports program, in a sport recognized as a Midwest Athletic Conference sport, your team must participate in the Conference in that sport.

Disregarding this article would cause chaos within the Conference for scheduling purposes. Without it, member school would be able to pick and choose which Conference sports they wish to participate. It would be impossible, in that environment, to set long-term Conference schedules for any sport.

The administration and residents of the New Bremen School District are proud charter members of the Midwest Athletic Conference, and this is a tough situation for them; a situation none of them want to be in. Rest assured; the Midwest Athletic Conference is working towards assisting New Bremen High School through this difficult time. Proposals have been, and will continue to be, composed, with the goal being a long-term resolution that all Midwest Athletic Conference member schools can support. There isn't an easy solution for this issue, if there was, it would have already been put in place.

I ask for patience and understanding as New Bremen High School, and we, as a Conference, continue to explore possible resolutions for this situation. Conjecture and rumors will not solve this problem.

There is one additional issue I would like to address. In the fall of 2005, Anna High School was asked, and agreed, to join the Midwest Athletic Conference as a “football only” participant. The decision to add Anna High School as a “football only” participant solved the Midwest Athletic Conference issue of rotating a “non-conference” game, week two through week ten. It was very difficult for Conference teams to find a “non-conference” game in week four through week ten, when all other conferences are playing their conference schedules.

This is a completely separate issue, and needs to be thought of as Anna High School taking New Knoxville High School’s place in the football portion of Midwest Athletic Conference schedule. Anna High School has never been “formally” invited to be a full member of the Midwest Athletic Conference. The circumstance wasn’t that Anna High School selected which sport they chose to compete as a Conference member, they were simply invited, and accepted, as a “football only” participant, by the Midwest Athletic Conference member schools.

Audio link from WCSM, Celina

1-16-14- email reply to our request on last night's meeting

There was a community meeting held in New Bremen last evening to discuss the athletic departments options due to the low numbers in the football program. The goal of the meeting was to give the community the facts, options and voice their concerns and questions of the situation. We will now take the information received to make the best decision for our students now and in the future. Our goal is to continue varsity football in the MAC.

Howard Overman, Superintendent
New Bremen Schools
1-15-14 - Some information and thoughts that came out of tonight's meeting in New Bremen discussing the future of football and athletic membership.

Midwest Athletic Conference has informed New Bremen schools that they will not be allowed to leave for football only, could lose MAC membership for all other sports.

Recruitment of players will be a key if the Cardinals continue with varsity football in the future. If it is decided not to field a varsity team, school officials will consider a JV schedule and will pay MAC schools for gate receipt and concessions lost in revenue.

NOTE: Waiting for New Bremen and MAC officials to issue official statements.

How will the MAC handle the problem

1-13-14 - This Wednesday night the community of New Bremen will meet to discuss it's football program for the future. Over the last several years the program has gone through some very "tough" seasons. The MAC is considered by many the top small school conference in Ohio and has had great success in the state football play-offs -

Several years ago Ft. Recovery asked for some considerations to help with the situation, although never made public, they were denied that rquest. The future make-up of MAC football membership might be decided in one small step this Wednesday (Jan 15) in New Bremen. Dropping football or facing numbers issues like this is becoming more and more common. This past year Hardin Northern decided just before the season started that they would not play a varsity football schedule. This left 10 schools searching at the last the moment to fill open dates. The Blanchard Valley Conference than decided to "exclude" HN from playing in the conference for the next two years.

The success of the other MAC members have put three members in a situation of looking for answers for the future. The BVC found out the hard way and was caught in the middle of the mess. The MAC is next up to face the issue of a member school looking at football for the future, New Bremen's problem now becomes a MAC problem.

Solutions are out there, it will be interesting to see how the conference members handle the problem. One question, should New Bremen actually cut the football program, what will Ft. Recovery and Parkway do next? Better to deal with the situation now, than to be caught off-guard.

New Bremen To Consider Football Future

UPDATE - 1-13-14 - "Midwest Athletic Conference declined comment on the situation."

1-11-14 - Football was discussed at a recent New Bremen Board of Education meeting. This week according to a posting on the New Bremen Schools web site the following resulted -

Marion Local Shuts Out Trimble 33-0 for Third Straight Title

Flyers hold Trimble to 104 total yards

MASSILLON – No. 1 ranked Maria Stein Marion Local led 13-0 at halftime and scored touchdowns on its first three possessions of the second en route to a 33-0 win over third-ranked Glouster Trimble in the OHSAA Division VII state championship game Saturday night at Massillon Paul Brown Tiger Stadium.

The title is the third in a row Marion Local (15-0), which becomes the seventh school in OHSAA history to win three-consecutive championships. The Flyers, who own the best playoff winning percentage in OHSAA history (53-9 overall), have now won seven state titles overall (2013, 12, 11, 07, 06, 01, 00).

The title is also the 30th for the Midwest Athletic Conference in football, building on the conference’s state record.

Junior Jacy Goettemoeller caught a touchdown pass in the first quarter and rushed for two scores in the third quarter to lead the Flyers, who totaled 414 yards of offense compared to 104 for Trimble.

The Marion Local defense notched three interceptions, including two on back-to-back drives to start the third quarter that led to Flyer touchdowns.

On a frigid night with game-time temperature of 16 degrees, senior quarterback Adam Bertke completed 17-of-28 passes for 216 yards and a touchdown and ran for 54 yards on 12 carries and scored two touchdowns.

Trimble (14-1) was making its first appearance in the state championship game. The Tomcats beat second-ranked Berlin Center Western Reserve in the state semifinals.

Coldwater Pulls Away From Hartley to Win Fourth State Title

Cavaliers score twice in fourth quarter to cap 24-7 win

photo courtesy of Eric Goodwin

MASSILLON – Sixth-ranked Coldwater led 10-7 at halftime and scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to top fourth-ranked Columbus Bishop Hartley, 24-7, Saturday in the OHSAA Division V state championship game at Massillon Paul Brown Tiger Stadium.

Coldwater (13-2), the defending Div. V state champion, now owns four state titles (2013, 12, 07, 05). The Cavaliers have played in the state championship game each of the last five seasons, making them the first school in OHSAA history to play 75 games in a five-year span. They are now 55-15 all-time in the playoffs and own the state’s longest active streak of qualifying for the playoffs at 18-straight years.

Coldwater junior quarterback Brody Hoying ran for 145 yards on 24 carries and scored all three Cav touchdowns, including a 9-yard run with 1:00 left before halftime and then fourth-quarter scoring runs of three yards with 5:26 left and 32 yards with 2:46 remaining. Hoying also completed 7-of-12 passes for 83 yards.

Other than Hoying’s scoring jaunts, perhaps the biggest play of the game was his interception of a Hartley pass and 33-yard return early in the fourth quarter deep in Hartley territory that ended a 16-play Hartley drive and eventually led to Hoying’s own second rushing touchdown of the game.

The two teams had nearly identical team statistical totals, with neither team gaining more than 300 yards, but the Coldwater defense held Hartley to 6-of-14 conversions on third down and 3-of-7 on fourth down.

Coldwater senior Mitch Schoenherr led the Cav defense with 16 tackles, while junior Mitch Fullenkamp added nine stops, including two for loss, and recovered a fumble.

Coldwater’s Matt Kramer got the scoring started for the Cavs with a 30-yard field with 7:45 left in the second quarter. Hartley’s Jared Brandewie scored the Hawks’ touchdown on a 7-yard run with 10:44 left in the third quarter. Alonzo Saxton led Hartley with 75 yards rushing on just eight carries.

Hartley (13-2) was making its fourth state final appearance (owns titles in 2010 and 1086) and is now 22-9 all-time in the playoffs in 11 appearances.

OHSAA Release

“The deadline for member schools to submit petitions for 2014 referendum items was Monday, December 2, which the schools would then vote on in May. There were no petitions submitted. The OHSAA had anticipated that a petition might be submitted regarding separation of team sport tournaments into public and private divisions. However, no petition was submitted. The OHSAA’s Competitive Balance Committee, which has created proposals the last three years that the membership voted down, will continue to meet and, along with the Board of Directors, will continue to evaluate this situation. There is no definite timeframe for another competitive balance proposal or other details available at this time.”

Celina's Mike Bath Named Interim Head Football Coach At Miami

Courtesy: Miami University Athletics

OXFORD, Ohio -- Miami University Athletics Director David Sayler has announced that Mike Bath will serve as interim head football coach for the remainder of the 2013 season. Bath has been a player, graduate assistant and assistant coach for the RedHawks over the past decade.

Bath spent the past three seasons as the quarterback/wide receiver coach for the RedHawks. In 2012, he helped Zac Dysert break nearly every passing record at Miami on his way to a spot on the All-MAC Third-Team. Dysert would go on to be drafted by the Denver Broncos.

Overall, Bath has spent six seasons as an assistant coach for the Red and White, previously coaching tight ends from 2006-08. Prior to returning to Oxford, Bath was Ashland University’s offensive coordinator in 2009-10.

As the quarterback of the RedHawks from 1998-00, Bath posted a record of 23-10 under center, including a 10-1 mark as a sophomore. He posted then-Miami career records of 6,524 yards passing and 49 touchdowns.

A double major at Miami, Bath earned bachelor of science degrees in marketing and organizational behavior in 2001. He and his wife Tara, and their three children, Colton, Savannah and Case.
