At a time when we could really use it, some young athletes gave us something to smile about over the weekend, bringing 3 of the 6 state football championship tropies handed out during the 2,020 Ohio High School Athletic association state football tournament home to reside in trophy cases at their schools in our area.
Like many of us, the student athletes from New Bremen, Coldwater and Van Wert proved over the weekend that they love high school football and were ready to perform at their highest level despite the crazy pandemic year this has been.
When given the opportunity to play, they played well, shining a bright spot light on the hard work and perseverance that it takes to be the best at anything you do.
Whether or not you live in Van Wert New Bremen or Coldwater you should be very proud of their accomplishments in overcoming a lack of summer practices and a much-changed regular season to prepare for success in the play offs.
That’s the way I see it.
