Archdeacon: Big Ben, Steelers ‘take care of business’ — again — in Cincinnati
 Ben Roethlisberger’s reputation in Cincinnati goes beyond the football field at Paul Brown Stadium. “My best friend, Jamie Cooper is from here and he’s getting married,” Roethlisberger said with a grin late Sunday afternoon as he stood just outside the visitors’ dressing room at PBS. “He said he’s...

Archdeacon: NBA legend Magic Johnson dishes off one of greatest assists to Central State
 Magic Johnson still has the touch. Rated the greatest point guard of all time by ESPN and one of its top 50 players ever by the NBA, Johnson especially lived up to his nickname when it came to getting his Los Angeles Lakers teammates the ball. No-look passes, spinning feeds, on the money alley-oops, he was the king of the perfect assist....

Archdeacon: Mom’s words, spirit guide Wounded Warrior through life
 Although his mom died when he was just 10, Mike Gallardo believes her words, her spirit, her will – even after the tortuous route he’s often had to travel – still are alive in him and show themselves time and again, including, he hopes, Saturday at Wright State’s Ron Nischwitz Stadium. “My mom was a single mom...

Archdeacon: Dayton native Hunter on joining Miami University’s Cradle of Coaches -- ‘It’s a great honor’
 Thanks to a pact between two teenagers, Ron Hunter went from an inner city upbringing in West Dayton to the brick and ivy world of Miami University, a place where he’ll now be forever remembered following a special celebration Friday evening at the Shriver Center on campus and Saturday afternoon at halftime of the RedHawks game with...

Springfield South grad Gee, family’s story subject of book, documentary
 Jayson Gee has long made a name for himself on the basketball court. He was a star on the 1983-84 Springfield South team that was 20-0 and rated No. 1 in the state and he was an All-American at the University of Charleston. As a head coach at Charleston – where his teams went 160-55 – he recruited Ajamu Gaines of Springfield South...

Archdeacon: Former Flyer Tiger, city champion headed into Stivers Hall
 Before she could flip herself, she first had to flip others. And because that plan worked so well, she’ll be inducted into the Stivers Athletic Hall of Fame on Sunday afternoon. Charlotte Bowman-Babcock — when she went to the storied Fifth Street school in the mid-1960s — talked about that as she sat with her husband...

Archdeacon: The Old Man and The Kid -- forever connected -- come up big for Bengals
 Their bond goes back to the NFL draft last spring. “Man, yeah, I guess it started when I called his name for the draft,” said Michael Johnson, the Cincinnati Bengals veteran defensive end who represented the team at the league’s annual talent grab last April at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Brought up to the podium to...

Archdeacon: First choice, the best choice for celebrated Flyer freshman
 So Dwayne Cohill becoming a Dayton Flyer — rather than ending up at Ohio State, Penn State, Northwestern, Xavier, DePaul, UNLV, West Virginia, Clemson, Texas or one of the other 18 or more Division I schools that offered him a scholarship — didn’t exactly adhere to Biblical verse. According to Matthew 20:16: “So the...

Archdeacon: Celebrated harness racing career serves as best cure
 “I was on fire!” That’s Casie Coleman talking about the most indelible moment of her harness racing career, one that began as a groom and then a driver and now has made her one of North America’s top trainers. But she wasn’t referring to the seasons in which she always seemed to end up in the Winner’s Circle...

Archdeacon: Dan the Man calls his special day with Tiger Woods 19 years ago -- ‘one of the most powerful experiences I’ve ever had’
 He was an 11-year-old kid with a “shaken, not stirred” fantasy. When asked by the Dayton chapter of the Special Wish Foundation for the dream he’d like delivered, young Dan Herchline, then a sixth grader at St. Luke’s Elementary in Beavercreek, didn’t miss a beat. He said he’d like to go to Hollywood and...

Archdeacon: Driven to succeed, Parris Campbell helps Buckeyes overwhelm Green Wave
 As his postgame press session ended — after he’d talked about his record-setting day, his thoughts about quarterback Dwayne Haskins being an early Heisman Trophy frontrunner and the emotional return of Urban Meyer after a three-game suspension — there was only one question left to ask Ohio State H-back Parris Campbell: &ldquo...

Archdeacon: One of Ohio’s best-ever high school sports stories is now a book by a Miami graduate. Here’s why he told it.
 He remembers how excited the five of them were to come to Dayton. Wil Haygood was just 17. One of his pals was able to borrow a car, all of them pooled their money for gas and they headed from Columbus to UD Arena to see their hero. It was Feb. 26, 1972 and Southwestern Louisiana, the No. 10 team in the nation, was playing the Dayton Flyers...

Archdeacon: Academics top priority for new Central State athletic director
 Tara Owens had just flown into Dayton International Airport from Baltimore to interview for the athletic director’s job at Central State University, a place she had long heard of, but never before seen. She was picked up by Nick Novy, CSU’s sports information director, and as they made their way to the historic black college in...

Archdeacon: At 3-foot-7, doctor stands tall at USAF Marathon
 When you consider the total person, few people who took part in the Air Force Marathon on Saturday stood taller than Dr. Nadia Merchant. And she’s 3-foot-7. As she competed in the half marathon – wearing a black cap and Nike head covering to adhere to her Muslim faith and taking short steps because of her rare genetic recessive...

Archdeacon: Dunlap switches his focus from Florence to Flacco as Bengals score big win
 Some 20 minutes past eight Thursday night, Carlos Dunlap had to fully switch his focus from one aerial assault to another. Instead of Florence, he had to focus on Flacco. Dunlap is from North Charleston, South Carolina, where his family still lives. His mother, Diane Ross, is a longtime school teacher and administer there. With his hometown...

Archdeacon: Special teams ace saves the day on defense for Bengals
 Right after Sunday’s game – after he had saved the day for the Cincinnati Bengals at Lucas Oil Stadium – Clayton Fejedelem stood bare-chested and still a bit dazed in the dressing room as he tried to explain his unlikely path to NFL stardom. Coming out of high school in suburban Chicago, he first played football for St....

Archdeacon: This Bengals star isn’t just feared by quarterbacks. He’s beloved by his communities — for good reason.
 He walked in off the morning practice field, headed to his dressing stall on the far side of the Cincinnati Bengals locker room and soon lowered his 6-foot-7, 280-pound frame onto a small wooden stool there. Above Michael Johnson hung two of the things he counts on most to get through his life. On the left side of his locker was his orange...

Archdeacon: Flyers new quarterback dares to be great, doesn’t freak out
 It started out as a regular text message from his grandfather. Back when he was playing football for Seneca Valley High, a school of nearly 7,600 students just north of Pittsburgh, Jack Cook said his granddad, James Newton, who played basketball at the University of Buffalo, would message him: “Dare to be Great.” Then a year ago...

Archdeacon: Bosa’s decision pays off for Ohio State Buckeyes
 A little boy’s decision gave Blake Brandel a big headache Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Blandel is the 6-foot-7, 307-pound left tackle for Oregon State and almost certainly a mid-round draft pick next year. That is unless he played each week against Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa, who flipped him around like a rag doll in the first...
