"It's a relief to have all of this over with now and I can
concentrate on working to get stronger and faster," Potts said.
"Dylan had set goals for himself at an early age," said River
High Head Football Coach Mike Flannery. “Dylan has worked very
hard to get where he is, and I am proud of him. He knows and
understands the game well and will learn even more as he moves
forward in his career."
Potts verbally committed to Akron
last spring for then head coach J.D. Brookhart, but after
finished the 2009 season with a dismal 3-9 record a coaching
change occurred. Former Notre Dame assistant coach Rob Ianello
was hired as its new head coach in December. Even with all the
changes at Akron, neither Potts
While the coaching change didn't affect Potts' decision to play
for the Division I University, it will affect his position.
After being recruited by their former coaching staff as a
quarterback for the spread offense with a slight possibility of
shifting positions, the new coaching staff informed Potts early
on he'll be shifted to wide receiver and may even get a look as
"I've never played anything but quarterback, but I am looking
forward to it and I think I will enjoy it," Potts admitted. "I
just want to get on the field wherever I can."
Potts believes his quarterbacking history will help him a great
deal to shift positions.
"The knowledge of running routes, knowing where guys are
supposed to be and reading defenses will be a big help," Potts
said. "I kind of had an idea that they wouldn't use me as a
quarterback, so when I found out officially, I accepted and have
been working to get ready to play receiver."
Flannery was quite impressed with the way the
coaches have handled Potts. "They were very straight forward
with him," Flannery said. "They told him they were going to
bring him on campus as a receiver, safety or an athlete. I can't
say enough about the Akron staff."
The 6-ft, 195 pounder was a four-year letterman for the Pilots,
taking over the starting quarterback duties in the third game of
his freshman year.
"We threw him into the fire, we won the game and he was our
starting quarterback from that point on," Flannery continued.
"He led two very good football teams to the playoffs."
After brilliant sophomore and junior campaigns in which Potts
triggered a Pilots' attack, which qualified for the Division VI
playoffs, he was injured early in the 2009 season and the Pilots
limped to a 2-8 season. However, he battled back from a
shoulder injury and returned to the field for the final five
games of the season and completed 91-of-152 passes for 1,100
yards and six touchdowns. He also ran for four scores.
For his career, Potts has thrown for close to 4,000 yards,
while, tossing 30 touchdowns and running for 17 more.
Potts is currently a starter for the Pilots' basketball team and
will run track in the spring, where he has also excelled.

years he misses with his forecast. I wonder what does Channel 9

out was a female, would this change the weather forecast?
I understand better things are in store. PETA, whatever that
stands for, says that Punxatawny Phil should be a robot rather

Phil to have bad dreams and become all shook up having to

January 22 a number of memories were brought back to mind. A
boat load of memories. The Skyvue basketball and baseball teams
of ’84 and ’85 were honored for their 25th anniversary. Most of
them were there. An excellent write up and picture were in the
Beacon and Times Leader about the evening.
I will admit I became a basketball nut when I started teaching
at Skyvue. I was soon involved in about every way possible. The
best thing happened after I retired but I still was involved. A
state finalist and final four in basketball and state champs in
I think many remember the details and how the whole county got
behind the team and was the “talk of the town.”
I had started attending the state basketball tournament several
years before. I remember thinking how I would like to sit down
there in St. John’s Arena and keep score for one of our
teams. I never dreamed it would happen twice.
All of the winning and accomplishments of this group of young
men, one thing stands out to me above all of this.
I was talking with one of the ushers at the arena as our team
came out on the floor. This is what he said, “Your team is the
most polite and well behaved team I have ever seen all the years
I have been working here.” To me this is as important as winning
and tells me what kind of young people they were and are.
I turned on Ohio State the other evening and they were
