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.

Woodmore athlete goes Division I at Bowling Green

Even though he had just realized his dream of becoming a baseball player at a Division I school, 2009 Woodmore graduate Mike Fahle said he didn't jump up and down or "go off the walls" when Bowling Green State University baseball coach Danny Schmitz informed him that he had made the team as a walk-on catcher.

"When I walked into his office, I had confidence," said Fahle, 19. "I almost felt like I played well enough and I expected to make it. I reached one goal. Now, I just have to keep working hard and hope for success in the future."

The 6-0, 200-pound Fahle said he was recruited by Bluffton, Heidelberg, Tiffin, and Ohio Northern, but he stuck to his guns about wanting to play at the Division I level.

"I wanted to go for the big one, I guess," he said.
