Archdeacon: Dayton native, former NFL player McKinney joins Central State staff
 Central State had an opening on its football staff and six days ago Brandon McKinney filled it. Oh has he ever filled it! And that’s not just referring to his massive presence on the sideline at McPherson Stadium on Saturday for CSU’s annual spring scrimmage. There’s more to him than just those 300-plus pounds that were...

Archdeacon: The long-ago doctor didn’t understand the drive of this former Tippecanoe star
 He’ll never forget the phone call. It was Jan. 3, 1991 – a couple of hours before the Tippecanoe High girls basketball team he coached was to play West Milton – when he learned two of his players had been in an auto accident near school. “I jumped in the car and went over, but when I got there, there were no cars,...

Archdeacon: Bahamian track standouts right at home at Central State
 It began with a little fantasy on both sides. Iesha Lockhart was a standout track athlete at C.V. Bethel Senior High in Nassau, Bahamas and had drawn interest from colleges like Grambling State and St. Augustine University when she met Central State coach James Rollins at the Penn Relays. “He told me about the track program and the...

Archdeacon: Chris Borland still making impact in football
 There are times when Chris Borland does the unexpected. That was the case just over three years ago when he suddenly walked away from a million-dollar NFL contract and the cusp of football greatness after a much trumpeted rookie season as a hard-hitting linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers. And that’s what happened again early Friday...

Archdeacon: Dayton football player honors late father by making most of life
 Statistics don’t always tell the story in sports and that’s especially the case with the Dayton Flyers junior punter Christopher Papalia. If you look at the numbers, you see he has punted just two times in his three-year career. And both of those kicks came in his very first game as a freshman. Since then he’s been the backup...

Archdeacon: Reds phenom Greene has all the tools, and plenty of heart, too
 He said he has relatives here in Dayton. He’s never met them, nor have they met him. He figures that may change this season if they ever make it to Fifth Third Field and are interested. And how could you not be interested in Hunter Greene? He’s a 6-foot-3, 195-pound phenom who, though just 18, has been described in storybook fashion...

 After the way Trotwood-Madison spent the entire game pressing, trapping and harassing Meadowbrook in the Division II state semifinal Friday at the Schottenstein Center – destroying the Colts, 88-42, in a game in which officials kept the clock running in the fourth quarter so the punishment wasn’t prolonged – you’d...

Arch: Ottoville puts town’s basketball journey on display in championship game
 When it comes to women and girls, and to basketball, the sport has come a long way in Ottoville. Back in 1923 – five years after Coach L.W.
