Brandon James

Brandon James
of The College of Wooster was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week, presented by Scoutware, for his work on special teams this past Saturday at No. 11 Wabash College, the popular website announced on Tuesday.

James, a senior strong safety, blocked a field goal on Wabash's first drive of the second half, and later in the third quarter, took a direct snap during a successful fake punt and went 46 yards, breaking multiple tackles down the right side line, before being pulled down inside the five-yard line. On the next snap, Wooster scored its first touchdown of the game to pull within 28-9.
In addition to his standout play on special teams, James tied for the team lead in tackles with 12, including one for a loss.

The Fighting Scots, who lost to the nationally-ranked Little Giants 35-16, will try to bounce back this week when they host Allegheny College Saturday at 1 p.m.

Barberton's Riley Ries, Macy Kaisk commit to play softball at Cleveland State University

The Barberton City Schools would like to congratulate Riley Ries and Macy Kaisk on their signing with Cleveland State University Softball Program. Both Riley and Macy will continue their academic and softball careers for the Vikings of Cleveland State University.



Barberton seniors Riley Ries and Macy Kaisk have committed to continue their academic and athletic careers at Cleveland State University as members of the Vikings softball team. 


“Riley and Macy have played together since they were seven years old and are excited to continue their playing careers together for coach [Becky] Norris and Cleveland State,” said Barberton coach Steve Kaisk, who is also Macy’s father. 


Ries and Kaisk will both sign their national letter of intent in November. 


Ries, a catcher, is a 2014 All-Northeast Ohio and Honorable Mention All-Ohio selection. She also plays basketball. 


Kaisk, a pitcher, is also a 2014 All-Northeast Ohio and Honorable Mention All-Ohio selection. She also plays volleyball and basketball. 


Ries compiled a .529 batting average as a junior with six home runs, 29 runs batted in and just one strikeout. She also hit for the cycle in a game against Geneva. She plans to major in Sports Medicine. 


“Riley is undoubtedly one of the smartest players I have ever coached at the high school or travel ball level,” Kaisk said. “Her knowledge of the game and leadership skills put her in a class by herself. She is also one of the hardest working players I know.”

Kaisk posted a 9-2 record as a junior with one save, a 1.03 earned-run average, 83 strikeouts and eight walks. She also batted .333 with four home runs and 18 runs batted in. She plans to major in Accounting. 


“Macy is one of the toughest competitors in the circle,” Kaisk said. “She is what every coach would want in a pitcher. I have never seen her rattled no matter the situation.”
