Fairport's long journey pays off with 50-0 win
BY TIM SHIRER
Back in August prior to the start of the high school football season Fairport was informed by Saint John that Saint John was playing eight man football this season. Fairport was not interested in the eight-man format, so the game was cancelled. Fairport Athletic Director Sandra Knight searched for a game. The only week three game she could find was out of state in Morgantown, West Virginia against the Trinity Christian Warriors. The Skippers made the three-and-a-half-hour trek to mountains in Morgantown and the Warriors were gracious host. But in the end the talented Skippers football team lead by head coach Cameron Ruff was to much for the Warriors and the Skippers prevailed in a shut out 50-0.

Fairport Harding used a balanced offense and stout defense to open the 2019 season with a 32-6 win over visiting Newbury on Friday.
Sam Schuster completed all five of his passes for 155 yards and one touchdown and the Skippers ran for 226 yards as a team.
“Our coaching staff is extremely proud of these kids for their efforts all winter and spring,” Fairport coach Cameron Ruff said. “Their hard work in the weight room has paid dividends for these kids in their development as football players and people. Their added strength has allowed us to block and tackle much better than we’ve done in the past. That showed tonight. We blocked and tackled with and executed the game plan.”
Cody Paugh led the ground game with 11 carries for 97 yards while Schuster added 64 yards on 10 carries. Jayden Alston carried three times for 41 yards and a score and Josiah Cooper scampered for 24 yards on five carries.
“Our offensive line brought great effort tonight,” Ruff said. “They paved the way for our running backs and provided time for our pass plays to get open. Quentin Piotrowski, Martin Mendoza, Dominic Knesebeck, Mike Voiles, Ethan Whitt, and Noah Greene did great blocking tonight. Sam Schuster ran with power and Cody Paugh averaged over nine yards per carry.”
The Skippers were equally effective in the passing game where Schuster spread out his five passes to four different receivers.
Justice Bartley caught one pass for 72 yards and a score, Damon Yahner hauled in one for 45 yards and Paugh had a 10-yard reception. Dillon Knesebeck recorded two catches for 38 yards.
Fairport’s defense shut down Newbury’s offense thanks in large part to six takeaways.
Bartley and Tai Malone both picked off a pair of passes.
Whitt led the defense with eight tackles and Dominic Knesebeck finished with three stops, a fumble recovery a blocked field goal and a defensive touchdown.

Students attending Fairport Harbor School District will have an opportunity to fast-track their education as the 2019-20 school commences.
The potential acceleration comes thanks to a partnership brokered between the district and Lake Erie College in Painesville to provide an Early College in High School program to students attending Fairport Harding High School.
Through the use of the state’s College Credit Plus program, students can earn up to 30 college credits at LEC while still attending high school. Students participating in the program will also be able to access LEC resources.
Proud To Be An American

Mrs. Toomey the high school art teacher collaborated with Susan Johnson/Lynch a local author who is writing a children's (7) book series called "Needs a Home". The basis of the series is that there were 7 animals in her life that needed homes so she adopted them as pets. The stories are fun and described the animals' personalities but they also teach the responsibilities of how to care for them. Susan chose 8 students' artwork to be in her books that should be released next year. These student's names will be acknowledged in the book credits and the students can include this publication on their resumes when they graduate. Congratulations to:
Maarika Haller, Matthew Oravecz, Jennifer Soria, Tierny Degidio, Morgan Braemer, Kiki Dambolena, Shyli Gibney and Kaylynn Clasing. Susan stated Kaylynn Clasing had the most illustrations chosen and her professional quality drawings included all 7 of the animals. Susan also mentioned how much she liked Tyler Clasing's sheep drawing, and she may end up using it!
Thank you to all students who participated and Mrs. Toomey for coordinating this opportunity for our students. Look for "Needs a Home" children's book series by Susan Johnson/Lynch next year.
