First off, I saw Freak's clarification on his post.
Just wanted to add about the overview on Coach Otten.
I grew up in Coldwater watching him play for the Cavaliers. I followed his career in College as he went to BG and overcame the assumptions about his lack of size. He played with Big Heart and a desire to succeed. During the NFL strike, they started broadcasting even small college games. BG vs Miami in Miami's then new stadium. Chip was all over the field. He returned kicks, lined up at receiver, RB and was one of the reasons BG won the game. He earned the nickname Little Big Man.
My first College O line coach went on to coach HS FB with Chip in Middletown. Years later, he kept telling me how great it was to work with him.
In short, I feel it is appropriate that Coach Otten assumes the reins at Coldwater and it is well deserved. I wish it were under different circumstances. If he can instill this approach to the game within his players along with the passion of the rest of the coaching staff, I feel he will enjoy success.
I think the Cavs will be ready to play and prepared for the Kenton attack.
I wish Coach Otten and the Cavs all the success in the world.
Go Cavs!!! Beat the Wildcats!!
