In my day hours, when not patrolling the Queen City in costume with The Avengers, I cover high school sports for The Community Press papers owned by the Enquirer. (I'll be covering Walnut Hills in the Division I state tournament this weekend. When not at live events, I write a pretty tolerable volleyball preview.)
When I can tie Bearcat athletics with something locally, that works out pretty well. In this case, as an Anderson High School grad and the father of two others (with two yet to go) I was happy to cover the hiring of Vince Suriano to the UC football staff.
This link is what will be published in the local papers this week and it's already online on www.cincinnati.com. Suriano literally rescued the Anderson program from the armpits of the old Hamilton County Suburban League and turned it from a doormat into a yearly playoff contender. He set the table for their two state appearances in Division II in 2007 and 2008.
When he first made the DI playoffs, they took just four local team and somehow Anderson was one. I'll never forget it.
Here's the link which also includes the video interview:
