One of the Southern Ohio Youth Football Association’s premier programs plays its home games on a lush green field nestled among trees, next to the J.B. Yeager American Legion and Whitewater Valley Elementary, along Campbell Road in Harrison.

 

Lifelong Harrison resident and longtime city councilman James Robertson, also known as “Scoop,” passed away on Thursday, Oct. 18, at the age of 65.

A wrapup of Harrison High School varsity sports results:

Cross country

Donna Kelly is 84 years old, and her 52-year-old son, Timothy Perkins, has some developmental disabilities. But, despite her age, and despite his disabilities, the two completed the Milwaukee Brewers Mini-Marathon 5K on Sept. 22. Provided photo

 

Despite being born three months early, not sitting up until he was 2 years old, not walking until he was 5, and having never spoken, 52-year-old Timothy Perkins completed his first 5K on Sept. 22 in Milwaukee. 

Since August 2015, Kyle Farfsing had attempted 203 kicks (field goals and extra points), making 189 through eight games in 2018. He is a weapon few Southwest Ohio Conference or Division II teams can match. Photo by Sandy Minor

 

Thirty-eight months ago, a 6-0, 150-pound freshman walked onto the football field at East Central High School in St. Leon, wearing the green-and-white of the visiting rivals. He stood at about the 15-yard line, waiting for the snap of the ball. His team was trailing 8-6 in the second quarter.
