  • Published in Sports

The members of the 1976 Port Clinton High School football team that went 9-1 with 7 shutouts and a Great Lakes League Championship were formally inducted into the Port Clinton High School Athletic Hall of Fame Saturday Night. With Leo Alvarado holding the GLL Championship Trophy, the team surrounds its head coach, Jim Hastings, who made the trip from Tennessee to Ohio this weekend for the special ceremonies. Hastings teams were 16-4 in his two seasons at the helm of the Redskins. Hastings spoke to the gathering on Saturday night and told a few stories about the team. He also admitted he may have made a mistake leaving for a College Coaching job at Morehead State in Kentucky. "No matter where I have gone in my coaching career, my heart is now and will always remain with Port Clinton and these great players." Two of the members of that team have passed on, including the starting center, Mike Ebert, who was represented by his wife Olga (pictured far left).

The first big run, a 50-yarder by Moyer, was followed by a 27-yard dash by quarterback Keegan Hall that gave Edison a first-and-goal at the 3-yard-line.
