Clay football picked to finish last in Three Rivers
The Three Rivers Athletic Conference coaches picked Clay football to finish in the cellar. In voting, Clay had eight points, which indicates that every coach picked the Eagles to finish last.

Whitmer and Central Catholic tied in voting for first place with 57 points each followed by St. Francis de Sales (44), Lima Senior (38), Fremont Ross (33), St. John’s Jesuit (31), Findlay (20), and Clay (8).

This will be the second year Coach Mike Lee will be at the helm of Clay football.


This fall Woodmore will be welcoming a new head football coach and math teacher, Brian Spicer. Spicer has been a head coach in football for 22 years and a school teacher for 19 years and he brings valuable experience in both.

Spicer grew up in Massillon and he says football has been an important part of his life since he was young. He strives to show how football mirrors life because it provides the platform and framework for teaching young people that true success is the result of leadership, teamwork and effort. The challenges and opportunities and the impact of the game of football brings to a school and community something Spicer loves.

“I teach and coach because it is my passion. I enjoy helping others and serving my community and strive to do so by providing a positive learning environment that allows our young people to grow,” said Spicer.


‘Tis the time of year for local high school golf coaches to be optimistic.

Clay boys coach Rob Belegrin and girls coach Kevin Crosson are no different – except that one coach (Belegrin) returns a veteran squad and Crosson graduated his top six performers from last year’s Three Rivers Athletic Conference runner-up team.

Belegrin, in his 17th season, brings back the bulk of a team that took fourth in the TRAC a year ago but graduated second-team all-conference performer and four-year varsity letterman Blake Heilman and Kurt Lazur, who is now golfing at Heidelberg.

“One of the things about this team is they’re all going to shoot around the same score, 77 to 82,” Belegrin said. “That’s a good thing. The bad thing about that is, we don’t have that one kid who shoots even-par or below.”
