Regarding the Shelby fans: We had a problem there two years ago in my senior year of HS when one of students called one of our African-American girls in the band the "N" word. Pretty sad.

Regarding Jon Ramirez: What a kid. He's such a hard-nosed, tough son of a gun and is definitely one that is fun to watch. He makes a lot happen and that might be the extra step that can help Fostoria make a deep playoff run.

Regarding Shelby Fans-When I first read this blog about what happened last week, it disturbed me greatly. Mainly because I once wore the Red and Black, but also because most folks don't know the work that goes into making Friday nights matter. It all roughly a few weeks after the season is over. Having to wake up at 5:30 in the morning to go lifting. To make matters worse, it's 20 degrees outside. Or what about when it's 90 degrees outside and you have to run stairs until you either puke or feel like passing out? I could go on forever, but the point is, the average fans does not even have a clue on the blood, sweat, and guts that these young men put into the sport that they love so dearly. This sport makes men out of young men. It teaches them about life and how to survive in todays tough economy.

As for Jon Ramirez-He's one heck of a football player. I too agree with you Bill, he's a hard-nosed player. Kinda reminds me of Tom Breitigam and Scot Scherger back in the early 90s.


Sad that fans act that way. I hold the media somewhat accountable, all we hear about on tv is the Dukies and the 12th man and "home field advantage". College kids acting like idiots and the administration turns the other way.
I hope Shelby's school administration was given a phone call and told of this. There is no place for it in high school sports.

Some act stupids which is sad. Hope they realized something.
