         What can you do? Coaches in three sports at 10 area schools have made their decision. Eastwood rules the Eastern Maumee Bay community in spring sports, 2018.

        In part due to a strong senior class that has been hailed for years, this spring Eastwood players and coaches have been voted Alan Miller Jewelers All-Press Track Co-Athletes of the Year, Track Coach of the Year, Softball Pitcher of the Year, Softball Offensive Player of the Year, and Softball Coach of the Year.

        Finally arriving is the All-Press Baseball Team, and Eastwood senior pitcher Jake Pickerel is Pitcher of the Year and Kevin Leady is Coach of the Year.

Chase Bodeman went to Robert Morris University to play quarterback, but the football gods weren’t cooperating.

A handful of plays into his first college game, Bodeman, who lives in Oregon and was a second-team All-Ohio quarterback as a senior at Whitmer in 2015, aggravated a groin injury that would cost him the rest of the game and, it proved, the rest of his 2016 season.

The Colonials, who compete in the 10-team Northeast Conference, had already lost two quarterbacks to injury when they traveled to Youngstown State in the third game of the season.

The only hand-to-hand combat Bill Fisher ever knew came on the football field and when he and his buddies used to throw each other around in their basements.

Fisher, a 2000 Clay graduate, coaches the Eagles’ defensive backs and is the team’s defensive coordinator. He was recruited as a quarterback but ended up played several positions on Bluffton University’s football team from 2000-03.

As he got a little older, Fisher, 36, got the itch to try something new, and he wanted to include his family. In February, Fisher signed up to start taking classes at Deon Thompson’s Ohio Brasa Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in West Toledo.
