Liberty Center football fans remember Michael Vicars as a quiet, unassuming young man.
At Liberty, he played football in a program that was fortunate to defeat other small schools at the time, let alone the bigger schools that make up the Northwest Ohio Athletic League.
“There was a lot of misery through the years,” Vicars once told The Press.
But Vicars was a powerful force at 5-9, 160 pounds. He was selected a First Team All-Northwest Ohio Athletic League defensive end as a senior in 1980. The 9-2 Tigers that year were Liberty’s first to reach the playoffs, losing to eventual state champion Tiffin Calvert.
Before his arrival here, there had been a “lot of misery” in the Genoa football program, too.
