Tom Archdeacon: No close shave for Raiders in exhibition
 Scott Nagy, the new Wright State coach, said some things are going to change between Wednesday night’s 88-62 exhibition game victory over Cedarville and his team’s season opener Nov. 11 at Southern Illinois. At his prompting, some of his players who hoisted up shots without a conscience against the Yellow Jackets, are going to...

Tom Archdeacon: Name, game set Flyers’ Xeyrius Williams apart
 What’s in a name? In the case of Xeyrius Williams, it depends on who is telling the story. “My mom and dad brought together some Greek mythology and came up my name,” the Dayton Flyers 6-foot-8 sophomore forward said Wednesday: “It was like (Zephyrus) the God of Wind and Zeus, the God of Lightning and then they added...

Tom Archdeacon: J.T. Barrett ‘comes up strong’ for Buckeyes
 Growing up in Wichita Falls, Texas – near the Oklahoma border and right in the heart of Tornado Alley – J.T. Barrett, as he’s said in the past, was petrified of the hellacious storms that often roared through the area. He worried, he hid, he prayed. Saturday, when the football team from the Windy City challenged him, the...

Tom Archdeacon: Noll book loaded with Flyer flavor
 They called the car the Green Hornet. It was an old Ford junker that Chuck Noll had bought from his brother back in Cleveland for $25 and then brought to the University of Dayton campus in the early 1950s. It’s also the vehicle author Michael MacCambridge now uses to take you along on one of the best stories he found in one of his several...

Archdeacon: No clowning, Bengals A.J. Green one of the NFL’s best
 A.J. Green is back to being a kid again. After years of trying to deny it, the Cincinnati Bengals stellar wide receiver – Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium – once again embraced the mindset he had as a young grade-school kid at Beech Hill Elementary in Summerville, South Carolina. Just as he did way back then, he could now admit: &ldquo...

Tom Archdeacon: Flyers Josh Cunningham all smiles in UD Arena debut
 She calls him “Pumpkin.” That, or “Pooh.” When Josh Cunningham called back home to Chicago on Friday for his daily conversation with his mom, LaTanya – who was on her lunch break from her job as a payroll supervisor with the Chicago Public Schools – she said she greeted him with a loving: “Hey Pumpkin...

Tom Archdeacon: Belmont soccer team’s story inspires community
 Thanks to Centerville High School, Julie Raiff cried … and then she danced. On Thursday, before her soccer team was to play its tournament game against host Centerville on the turf field at Alumni Stadium, the Belmont coach was brought to tears when the rival Elks opened their hearts and their closets to her players. The Belmont soccer...

Tom Archdeacon: La Tulip no long shot to help Raiders
 Most long shots bank heavily on luck. But for Mike La Tulip, it’s familiarity. The new Wright State guard — who spent the past four years in the Big Ten with the Illinois basketball team — introduced himself to Raider Nation via social media last month with a video of him sinking a length-of-the-court shot in the practice...

Tom Archdeacon: Dragons VP an actor turned director
 The ruby red slippers are long gone, replaced now by what she calls her “trusty” black flats. That said, the yellow brick road aspect of her pursuits isn’t completely gone. Back at Monroe High School in the mid-1990s, Brandy Guinaugh was deeply involved in theater. She had the leads in a couple of school productions, including...

Tom Archdeacon: Belmont soccer boasts international flavor
 Bathed in the last rays of sunshine on a beautiful fall afternoon a few days past, Nyaz Ibrahim stood quietly at the edge of the Belmont High School soccer field — where his chattering teammates already were loosening up for practice — and, after a few moments of quiet reflection, compared life now to the darker times in his past...

Tom Archdeacon: Celebrating a true character at Dayton Raceway
 The doctor didn’t quite get it right. Back in the 1950s and early ’60s, Tom Horner Sr. had an impressive career racing modified and late model stock cars across the Midwest and some sprint cars, too. “He was one of the original NASCAR drivers,” Tom Gray, his longtime pal and a harness racing partner said Wednesday...

Tom Archdeacon: Dunbar protesters weather the storm
 It was the first call of the morning. An older woman was on the line and she asked to speak to the football coach. The Dunbar High School secretary transferred her to Darran Powell, and he promptly heard the grandmotherly voice greet him with: “You n*****!” Early one evening a few days ago, Powell stood on the Dunbar practice...

Tom Archdeacon: Stivers grad who never quit enters Hall of Fame
 For just a moment, he was overwhelmed. In his first week working the emergency room at Stouder Memorial Hospital in Troy, Dr. James Lewis suddenly had to care for two young men who were brought in unconscious and near death. Their lives were in his hands. “One of them had gone down through a manhole into the sewer to fix a problem and...

Tom Archdeacon: J.T. Barrett goes from ‘leap of faith’ to record OSU QB
 As it turns out, Urban Meyer has something in common with the Teddy Bears of late 1950s fame and the Grammy-winning collaboration by Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris in the 1980s and more recently, a soulful effort by the late Amy Winehouse. The musicians all had a hit with the song, “To Know Him Is To Love Him.&rdquo...

Archdeacon: Bengals’ A.J. Green makes it look easy against Dolphins
 It was the only time all night he had let something slip right through his fingers. As he stood at his locker in the postgame dressing room, a box of diapers next to some footballs on a top shelf behind him, A.J. Green quietly admitted his fumble. He said he hadn’t thought of saving the ball he caught for a touchdown in the Cincinnati...

Tom Archdeacon: No debating this horse’s star power
 Although Wright State backed out as the host and Hofstra University had to step in last Monday night, it turns out we’ll still have a national debate here — one where no one holds back. It’s Friday night and while the candidates might not have the household familiarity of a Clinton and a Trump, you’ve got to agree...

Archdeacon: Dayton’s Latimer ‘a guy who remembers where he came from’
 Cody Latimer’s best return Sunday may not have been that one with just under five minutes left in the first half, when he fielded a kick by Cincinnati’s Mike Nugent a yard deep in the end zone and returned it 46 yards before getting tripped up by the last Bengal between him and the end zone. The Denver return man from Jefferson...
