Tom Archdeacon: Horseman, wife a great team at the track
 This is not to say it’s a commentary on her driving, but when Becky Woebkenberg gets behind the wheel of their white Ford F-150 pick-up, her husband Mike gets in the back seat, turns completely around and looks out the rear window. “I’m a true backseat driver,” Mike grinned. But he wasn’t kidding. And that&rsquo...

Tom Archdeacon: Steubenville offender gets second chance at Central State
 One of the more controversial, polarizing — and, some say, mischaracterized — football players in the nation has joined the Central State Marauders and is vying for the stating quarterback job. How the venture ultimately plays out will make the story of Trent Mays one of second chances or second guesses. Five years ago, Mays &mdash...

Tom Archdeacon: Former Buckeye considering Central State
 Even though the newest edition of his Central State team was out on the McPherson Stadium field for a spring game preview of the season, it would have been understandable Saturday if coach Cedric Pearl was keeping one eye on the sidelines, as well. Future promise was there, too, in massive form. Marcelys Jones, the 6-foot-4, 315-pound offensive...

Tom Archdeacon: UD rowers determined to make a difference
 The first time she saw the photo of the missing brown-eyed girl it mesmerized her. That was five years ago and it’s no different today. “Her name is Sierra LaMar and she went missing relatively close to where I grew up in California,” University of Dayton rower Rosario “Rosie” Perez said Friday afternoon. &ldquo...

Tom Archdeacon: New Flyers coach unfazed by roster, coaching vacancies
 You know how the Easter parable goes: They roll back the stone and the tomb is empty. Well, Anthony Grant returned Monday from his trip back to Oklahoma City to see his wife and kids over the Easter weekend and when he got back to the Dayton Flyers basketball program he certainly didn’t find it empty, but there were a couple of noticeable...

Tom Archdeacon: The sack man sings for Central State Marauders
 He gave the perfect description. “My coaches here was mouth-dropped,” John Franklin said. “They was shocked. There was like, ‘Is he serious?’ They couldn’t believe what I was doing.” It happened late last summer when Central State opened its preseason football camp with four days of drills and brotherhood...

Tom Archdeacon: Former C-J, Oakwood athletes to meet in boxing main event
 It’s because things didn’t go as planned — be it their plan or a parent’s — that these two young women, Lauren Amongero and Aimee Pezo, will fight each other in the main event of the eight-bout Knockout charity boxing show at the historic Montgomery County Fairgrounds Coliseum on Saturday night. In the case of...

Tom Archdeacon: Anthony Grant’s first impression always a winner
 This is about first impressions. Not the one Anthony Grant made when he met with his Dayton Flyers players for the first time Saturday afternoon at UD Arena. And not the one he made soon after when he was introduced as Dayton’s new basketball coach at a Flight Deck gathering in the Arena that included his former UD coach Don Donoher...

 Friday afternoon at their home in Oklahoma City, Anthony Grant and his wife Chris were getting all ready for the big affair: Today’s “Welcome Back” press conference at UD Arena?

Tom Archdeacon: Anthony Grant, Dayton Flyers a ‘perfect marriage’
 In the beginning, Don Donoher had one concern about Anthony Grant. “When he came in here for his first visit we were skeptical,” the former Dayton Flyers coach recalled with a chuckle Thursday afternoon. “I mean nobody in their right mind is going to leave the sunshine of Miami, Florida and come to snow-belt Dayton, Ohio...

Tom Archdeacon: Behind the scenes on Archie Miller’s road to Indiana
 John Miller watched Friday night’s NCAA Tournament game between UCLA and Kentucky with a bit of bemusement. “I sorta had to laugh at the media yesterday on TV,” he said. “It was Alford this and that.

Tom Archdeacon: Trotwood’s Davis carries on brother’s legacy
 He remembered one thing from the funeral: “It all hurt real bad and I remember my mom was crying and I reached out and held onto her hand and said, ‘It’s gonna be OK.’ ” Amari Davis was only 6 that October day in 2007 when they buried his idol, his 14-year-old brother Boo, who already was 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds...

Tom Archdeacon: Dayton women can’t keep the fire going against Vols
 They’re recognized as an NCAA Tournament team, but Saturday they showed themselves to be some savvy Girl Scouts, too. The Dayton Flyers women know how to build quite a fire. In the first 8 ½ minutes of their tournament opener against Tennessee at the KFC Yum! Center, UD missed 14 of its first 15 shots, turned the ball over three...

Tom Archdeacon: NCAA loss ‘tough to take in’ for special Flyer seniors
 The game – which at times seemed more like a back-alley brawl between two bent-nosed scrappers – was over. The Dayton Flyers had lost to Wichita State, 64-58, Friday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Their NCAA Tournament was over some 2 ½ hours after it began. Scoochie Smith – who was his team&rsquo...

Tom Archdeacon: Ex-Wright State coach a lucky man — just ask him
 It was St. Patrick’s Day. Billy Donlon is Irish and as he stood in the dressing room at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse after Michigan had edged Oklahoma State, 92-91, in the NCAA Tournament, he talked about his luck: Not that the Wolverines had come from seven down to outlast the most prolific offensive team in the nation. Not that...

Tom Archdeacon: Dayton Flyers guard Kyle Davis --- ‘we’re gonna shock the world’
 It might sound like inflated hype or, at least, a bit of oversell, but Kyle Davis was sounding a lot like both Muhammad Ali before he fought the seemingly invincible Sonny Liston back in 1964 and Joe Namath before he guided his 18-point underdog New York Jets against the mighty Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III. “We’re gonna shock...

Tom Archdeacon: Back in tournament, NC Central coach finds perspective
 It was a moment just like this one that LeVelle Moton had dreamed about for three years.
