(L to R) Jim Day, Dan Ramey, Pat Highland and photographer Dana Cousins
Dan Ramey and Pat Highland are in their 14th Cavalier football season.
Jim Day joined the team as sideline reporter in 2006. Dana Cousins has worked as the web photographer for wbex.com the last three seasons.
Dan is entering his 29th season as Voice of the Cavs and host of "Dan & Mike in the Morning" on WBEX.
Pat is a long time Cavs supporter, former president of the Cavalier Club.
Jim found his spot along the sideline and in the locker room as a photographer at football and basketball games. Visit Jim's photo website.
Dana is a retired Chillicothe Police Officer and has been coaching Cavalier athletics since his school years. Visit Dana's photo website.
Last Friday, Chillicothe rocked the boat in its return to the South Central Ohio League with a 20-14 overtime victory at Miami Trace. Friday, they return to Fayette County on a mission.
“I put a challenge to our offense this week” said Cavs coach Ron Hinton. “I want to rush for over 200 yards. I want to put some points up on the board number one… I want to do it early, and I want to break a big play.”
Hinton has made it no secret the first four weeks of the season. Despite providing 20.5 points per game, in Hinton’s eyes, the offense has been lagging.
“I want some big plays, passing and rushing.”
In the interim, one can easily point back to the hook-n-ladder play which won the Big Walnut game. There’s the 15 yard run up the gut to secure the win at Johnstown, three rushing scores against Teays Valley, and not long ago the 16 yard run sprint to the corner in overtime last week. But what Hinton’s impressing is the old fashioned grind it out drives which have been missing this season.
“A team shouldn’t be running 50-60 plays a game against us… it should be the other way around.”
Hinton credited the special teams and defense with their respective solid play. Especially the defense, which held the Johnnies to seven points, allowed just 64 total yards to Big Walnut after the Eagles’ first two drives, shut out Teays Valley (38.5ppg) and limited Miami Trace (42 ppg) to 14. Those are important numbers when considering the Blue Lions Friday night.
Washington’s Ty Smith has nearly 700 yards rushing entering Week 5 and has tallied nine scores and the Blue Lions are averaging just over 30 points per contest. They rolled up 59 points against East Clinton last week. The only speed bump for Washington was Circleville (56-13) in Week 2. The Tigers posted 35 points by intermission.
Chillicothe is making its first trip to the gridiron at Gardner Park since the 1980s. The Cavs own the series with Washington Court House 41-26-4. Between 1963 and 1983, Chillicothe managed just four wins and settled for two ties (’65 & ’70) and the Blue Lions earned 15 wins during the period. The Cavs handed Washington High a series of six straight losses, beginning with 1984’s 13-0 win in Bill Trent’s final season and then outscored the Blue Lions 31-11 in five meetings under John Sines.
Coverage of the game begins at 7:05pm on WBEX (1490am/92.7fm) and wbex.com powered by iheartradio.
