This is a Re-Post From Cliff !!! My Picc's Will be up Soon !!!!!

From the Pressbox: New London Game

Friday night the young, but improving Rittman Fighting Indians took on the New London Wildcats at Rittman Stadium. The team has more players this season, mostly underclassmen, so I look for this season to be another learning experience for the young team. Rittman scored first last night, but New London controlled the rest of the game.

This years band has also increased in size and will be going to all the league away games this season, something that hasn't occured in the past three seasons. Looks to be agood marching season.

Last night's halftime was somewhat abbreviated due to an induction to the Rittman athletic wall of fame. New London's band, the Marching Wildcats, put on a very entertaining show.

The Rittman Indians Marching Band took the field for the first time this season and the fans loved it. They opened their show with "Rock Lobster" made popular by the B-52's. Then as a tribute to the long time band director of Anthony Wayne High School, Bill Moffit, who passed away last winter, the band performed pattern in motion drills, which Mr. Moffit developed while performing the Black Sabath hit, "Iron Man." To conclude the show we asked the audience to swing along as the band performed "Mass Brass."

and.. Message from me, Matthew:
** i'll be adding sum piccs of my own in a few days soo stay tuned.. **

Finally here, coming up-Friday Night Halftime
There's no better way to "kick off" this three day weekend but with my favorite student musicians, the Rittman Indians Marching Band! And helping to break the late summer evening silence will be the loudest band announcer in Northeast Ohio. And of course soon following will be the first edition of "From the Pressbox" of the 2008 football season. And the WIXYcam will be on hand to take pictures of the action.Oh yeah, the Rittman football team will be playing New London tonight also.It's all about halftime!

New London 38 64 % Rittman 13 36 %
Triway 13 32 % Orrville 34 68 %
More Score's Coming Soon!

I was at last night's Rittman Game an it rained like crazy right before the half an i got all wet LoL i thought for sure the' halftime show would be canceled but luckly they went on with their show! ;) an i enjoyed all the new songs from Rittman! an New London was pretty good also!..
Can't wait till next week's Halftime Show !!!!!

R ittman F ootbaLL P reView

Rittman's Football Team has nearly doubled in size over the past year. Enthusiasm in the Indians' camp may have increased even more.
A programthat a year ago was teetering on the brink of extinction is now tottering back toward respectability. A couple months of fridays from now, the Indians' may just have that. Until then, though, they're going to enjoy the ride.
"I think there's more confidence," Indians coach Al Teague said of the difference between last year and this. "Not only because we have more numbers. We've got a lot of guys back that have played for the first two years that I've been here. There's a lot of confidence in their abilities and experience. They know what we have to do. They've done a great job."
The 2007 season was a tough one, to be sure, for the Indians. They were over-matched most weeks. abaut they're a year older, bigger and stronger now as individuals. Almost all of them are back, with even a few more key additions.
Among those are Mike Walls. The junior returns after a year off due to academic problems and will run the Indians' offense. He was the starting quarterback as a freshman before injury problems limited his availability.
"He still played some (defensive back) as a freshman," Teague said of the 6-foot, 175-pound Walls. "But he missed a lot of the season."
Walls' insertion at quarterback means sophomore Brandon Bauman will shift over to tailback, though he will still see some time under center. His classmate Kevin Dotterer will play fullback.
"For a sophomore, Kevin is a very strong and able-bodied athlete," Teague said. "He worked hard in the weightroom obviously."
Seniors Kyle Killough(Matthew's Cousin) and Robert Snelgrave lend experience to the offensive line, which this year looks to be a strength.
Seniors Korey Austin an Dustin Sword will provide athleticism at the skill positions; Austin at receiver and Sword both at running back an kick returner.
"(Sword) brings some speed that we haven't had a lot of it in the past," Teague said. "He brings a gutsy kid. He's not real big, but gives it everything he has. He hasn't played in a while, se he's playing a little catch-up."

Fair Day

the best damn band in the land(Repost from Cliff)

The Rittman Indians Marching Band They are the best, I take my stand The student musicians have the gift To give the crowds a special lift

The band director's named Ed Sims He'd be excited directing hymns All the students groan at his jokes Sometimes his humor is just a hoax

The majorette leader, Becky Cline Gets teased a lot, but she is fine The majorettes they twirl and spin To not have them would be a sin

The boosters, they are a loyal crew Without them we would be in a stew They volunteer they're chaperons And other things, these precious stones Our band, they march, they do not walk Their marching show is not just talk They hit their notes and hit their marks Their enthusiasm really sparks

And now it's time for me to go Thursday night is our first show We will be in Mogadore See us then, you will not snore

Thursday, August 14, 2008

i don't like the weather in Northeast Ohio... Matthew Speaking Out The Truth(iam depressed noww)

Ed Sims, director of the Rittman marching band told us There is currently a thunderstorm in Mogadore and the band show has been cancelled! i Don't understand that they cann Re'schedule Football Games but NOT Band Shows... yeah we drove clear over there for nothing !!! ;( iam VERY disapointed Too! Trust Me iam the worst bad luck you cann hang around with!!!!!!!! I HATE THIS STATE!!!!! This was gonna be my 1st band show i've gone too thas not Rittman's an i REALLY was looking forward too it! o well what do you expect, this always happens too Matthew Killough... ;*( i also wasted 30 dollars too get down there, for nothing! i paid someone for gas too take me! Srry Jus a little upset right now soo iam gonna wrap this up....

is Tonight's Band Show Cancelled due too The' Rain?

Update from Cliff Feightner
The only way the show would be cancelled would be if there was lightning. That's something that won't be known till showtime. I took a look at the weather channel site and the hour by hour forecast said that there was the possibility of "scattered thunderstorms."At this point I don't know as I'm not an employee of the Rittman School district. If the program would be cancelled, Ed Sims would call my cell phone then I would know.

LoL The storm here in Rittman almost knocked out my power !!!!
