4-th - 6th Grade: It was a privilege and honor to lift weights and do sprint drills with the football team. While doing one set of sprints, Zach Space happened to ran out of his lane and intentionally tried to run me over. - DLVE

The trips out to Wooster, Ashland, and Mansfield were always memorable with the fall colors, the smells of the country, and long lines of traffic going to and from Dover. - DLVE

8th Grade: During the Dover-Youngstown Cardinal Mooney playoff game there was a hit by Scott Heller and another player in front of me and a couple coaches or assistants which ended up as a tie and both players got up and ran off. After the hit the men turned around and both said, "Oh ... my ... God". -DLVE

(Probably) 8th Grade: After the game (I believe) at Wooster their PA suddenly played The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again", notable because playing commercial music over the PA then was a new concept. It sounded good though. - DLVE

Freshman year: I was sitting on the bench sulking that North Canton Hoover had just beat Dover, and slowly realized chaos was breaking out over to the east side of the field as Hoover was trying to tear down the victory bell. I think I saw Todd Espenschied reach for his walking stick to use as a club. -DLVE

4th-Senior Year: The smell of the visitor locker room where they lifted weights was unforgettable. The smell of the home locker room after the games was even worse being a combination of sweat, fumes from the open restrooms, steam from the showers, and smoke from cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and Swisher Sweets all enough to knock a person out. -DLVE
