Congratulations to both teams.  I watched both championships on Sunday.  Impressive, and both teams are very young.

Also congratulations to the lacrosse team that finished the regular MAC season as tri-champions with a 8-2 conference record.  Amazing to tie two established programs in only our second year of operation.

Expect the track teams to collect more hardware this weekend.  It has been a good spring.  Only the softball team is under-performing. Baseball is bad but I understand that they were destroyed by the transfer portal after last season.

Unfortunately, the Colts also drafted a TE in the third round in this drafted. It will be tough for Ogletree to mane the roster. If he does well, he might be able to hook up with another team or the practice squad.Kevin Raider has been on the Steelers practice squad for 3 years ( he was called up to the active roster couple of times late in the season.

YSU TE Ogletree drafted by Colts

MAY 1, 2022

YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown State tight end Drew Ogletree was drafted in the sixth round by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. He was the 192nd overall selection.

Ogletree, a Dayton native, caught 40 pa$$es for 391 yards in two seasons as a Penguin. Last season, he had 28 receptions for 282 yards. At Findlay, where he played from 2016-2019, the 6-foot-6 target hauled in 91 pa$$es for 1,147 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Ogletree is the first Youngstown State player to be drafted since Derek Rivers and Avery Moss were taken in the third and fifth rounds, respectively, in the 2017 draft.

After the draft concluded, fellow former Penguin Grant Dixon, a linebacker, was extended an invitation to the Colts’ rookie mini-camp.

For the record, I do not hate OSU, my daughter and S-I-L graduated from there & I am proud. It is just that Youngstown loves OSU to the point of ignoring YSU, and all this will do is reinforce the naysayers that still think we are D-II football. Anyone but OSU is fine with me, just get your check, have a real game-plan and play everyone.

PS: complete agreement with Akron and Kent Guinpen. I was nevermore happy than when that game was cancelled. What a mistake.
