Written by
Due to the personal troubles of its cast members, some believe there was a curse surrounding the show Diff’rent Strokes. But one of the remaining members of the popular program shrugs it off.

Bridges talked about the family atmosphere of the show both on and off the air, with co-stars Gary Coleman, Dana Plato, and Conrad Bain.

AUDIO Hoban Makes It Three In A Row!

Written by

The Archbishop Hoban Knights are now in rarified air as they captured a Division II State title over Cincinnati Winton Woods 42-14 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.

The win gives the Knights three titles in a row and their first in Division II. Their first two titles in this dominant run came in Division III.

Coach Tim Tyrrell's team opened up the game in a big way when quarterback Shane Hamm connected with Garrett Houser on a 73-yard pass play to make it 7-0.

Tyrrell said his freshman signal caller played well tonight.

"He was very smart in being able (to check at the line of scrimmage)," Tyrrell said.

"The offensive line did a great job in protection and the receivers made great plays on the ball."

 

Hoban also capitalized early on mistakes by the Warriors, opening up the first quarter scoring off a blocked punt to make it a 14-0 game.

They didn't take their foot off the gas as Houser, a Navy commit, got his 2nd TD of the ballgame to open the second quarter to put Hoban up 21-0.

A long run by Winton Woods' Miyan Williams led to a touchdown pass to Cornell Beachem from signal caller Kenny Mayberry to cut the lead to 21-7 with 9:19 left to play in the first half.

The Knights answered quickly with a long pass to Nate Bauer to set up a 1-touchdown plunge by junior Tyris Dickerson to make it 28-7.

Raquean Prince of Winton Woods then answered for the Warriors returning the subsequent kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown to cut the lead half 28-14.

Hoban then connected on a 38-yard scoring strike to Mason Tipton, who appeared to step out of bounds, but the TD stood.

Freshman QB Shane Hamm then hit end zone again with another touchdown pass to Tipton to make it a 42-14 halftime lead after a failed fake punt attempt by Winton Woods.

It was Hamm's fourth touchdown toss of the night.

Both teams had a scoreless third quarter, but Hoban kept up the defensive pressure, which was just what Coach Tyrrell wanted.

When asked which was the most memorable aspect of this three year run by the Knights, Tyrrell pointed to the seniors who led on the field, in the weight room, and with the underclassmen.
