Tom Archdeacon: Boxing helps Parkinson’s sufferers cope
 He said the first time he walked into the gym “you’d have thought I was drunker than a skunk. “I was staggering. I had to hang onto the desk up front to make sure I didn’t fall over.” It was about two months ago when John Stanley came through the front door of the M-Power Gym on North Dixie Drive in Vandalia...

Archdeacon: Trent Mays learning to make right decisions at Central State
 Even though he threw three interceptions and fumbled twice in Central State’s 34-23 season-opening loss to Elizabeth City State University on Saturday at McPherson Stadium – in a performance he later called “unacceptable,” – Trent Mays’ day was far better than it could have been. At least his head coach...

 He remembers the trips vividly. “From the time I was a little boy — even sometimes after my pee-wee games — I’d come with my dad to the homecoming game at Central State each year,” Demetrius Colbert said. “He played at Central for Billy Joe and he liked coming back to the school. And it was a big deal to...

Tom Archdeacon: Time to start believing in Miami’s Heath Harding
 A lot of folks can be thankful she talked her son out of quitting school and going to get a job.

Archdeacon: Flyer “family” gets freshman through a nightmare
 He said he had just “messed up” on a play and as he returned to the huddle he was chiding himself. “I was telling myself to pick it up,” Andrew Lutgens said. “We got this saying – ‘Just do your job,’ – and that’s what I had to do.” And then he did just that, making a diving...

Tom Archdeacon: Reminiscing with the NFL’s first black quarterback
 He opened the old leather bag in front of him and with his left hand — where the ring finger was adorned with a bulky, gold College Football Hall of Fame ring — he began rummaging through the packed contents. “I’ll show you how Jim Crow it was back then,” George Taliaferro said quietly as he began his search...

 Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Tom Archdeacon: Springboro athlete a Titan among little people
 He is the BMOC. Big Man on Campus. That might be a surprise to some folks back in high school where he was deemed too small for most varsity sports and was the shortest guy on the Panthers indoor track and ultimate frisbee club teams.

Tom Archdeacon: A story about racing and brotherly love
 To understand the recent sorrow and now this last-minute sweat and determination, you first must know about the bond they had. They were born 11 months apart — back in the late 1940s — and the closeness remained the rest of their lives. When John “Pee Wee” Goins, the eldest brother, went off to the Vietnam War &mdash...

Tom Archdeacon: Local MMA fighter returns to the ring of fire
 You could say it was the day the music stopped. A few mornings ago Warren Roberds was in the ring at Drake’s Downtown Gym going through his 27th straight minute of sparring without a break.

Tom Archdeacon: Yellow Springs girl, 13, ‘not your typical kid’
 For a long time she had dreadlocks. Then came a full-blown Afro and later a trimmed-down version. There was a period of pigtails, too.
