THE 2014-2015 SEASON

The Magic’s enter the 2014-2015 season excited, determined, and certainly a little more experienced than we were at this time last year. After graduating only three seniors from last year’s squad, our returning players feel like they have something to prove and are excited about the 2015 season. Senior lettermen Kyle Haywood & Skylar Shifferly return to lead the team as well as Jr.’s Austin Rector & Jeff Woolridge who were thrown into the fire last year as sophomores. Jr. Buzz Walker also returns looking to pick up where he left off after breaking his wrist last season. Unfortunately, Jr. Brandon Taylor-Mitchell will be sidelined for an unknown length of time after surgery to repair a torn ACL this summer. Sr. Cam Dancy, Jr.’s Brandyn Miller and Terrell Mims and Soph. Kobie Booker among others are expected to contribute and improve as the Magics enter their last season as an independent before re-joining the Suburban League next year.


2012 graduates Clay Walker and Eric Hummel will be playing for Defiance and Wittenberg again this year. 2011 graduate Todd Sabol is completing his final year of soccer @ Marietta and Brandon James is finishing his 4th and final season starting @ safety for the College of Wooster football team. Both have had outstanding careers athletically and academically! Another 2011 grad, Josh North, will be finishing his career pitching for Youngstown State this spring. 2009 grad Garrick Sims began his professional basketball career in Spain playing for GBD Badajoz of the EBA. Their season has just started and Garrick is excited and having a great time living and playing in Spain. We are fortunate that all of these fine student athletes are representing Barberton in such a great manner. All (except Garrick!) are playing no more than a couple of hours away and their schedules are easily found on their college’s website. If you can, find a day to see them play…they would love it!


Don’t forget Magic Madness, on Nov. 14th @ 5:30. We will introduce our players and give you an up close look @ the 2015 edition of the Magics as we prepare for the season. This will be a great night so come and enjoy this fun and entertaining look @ the Magics!
