Want to Congratulate the Oran Basketball team for a successful and exciting season. Coach Schumaker is a fine young coach and he does a good job developing his players into athletes and fine young men.

On to baseball. Coach Wood is respected by his peers for the job he does on the field and this season he has some experience coming back. Looking forward to another fun filled season on the Oran diamond and fans filling the bleachers to show the support of the Oran Eagles.

With a little luck and hard work this team could be a diamond in the rough. Good luck Eagles and lets play ball.

Was impressed Tuesday night watching the Oran Eagles play. Do I feel that they will be a team to watch out for, need to see more playing time to be able to go there. What impressed me was the speed and passing that has been missing for some time. Maybe might just be my imagination but I didn't walk away with the feeling that this was going to be another lack luster year.

Coach Shoemaker also gave me hope that all isn't lost at OHS in that you don't have to make a spectical of yourself in order to get the point across. Nor do you have to degrade the players in front of the whole gym. Some coaches, regardless of school, seem to think the louder they get and the more they insult the better the players will be. Congrats to you Coach Shoemaker for bringing silent dignity back into the game and for keeping the criticisim for the locker room and practices.

Also, while still not what they used to be, the OHS cheerleaders seem to be on a comeback. And one could not leave off the Tailfeathers. I only have one comment, the "you can't do that" is really annoying.

Good luck tonight!
