Excited About the Event
“I love high school
football,” said Spielman
about his interest in supporting high school football in Central
Ohio. “My father still is a high school football coach at
72 years old. He started coaching at Canton Central Catholic, then over to
Canton McKinley, Canton Timken, then at Massillon
Washington and now at Dr. Krop High School in Miami.”
“I don’t know what my life would be
school football. I’ve been in locker rooms and going to two-a-days since I was
5 years old. To be back involved with high
school football, that means a lot to me.”
He explained about his excitement for the event.
