During times like these, we truly realize what’s important in life.
As most of you probably know by now, 13-year-old Devin Kohlman is battling cancer. The good folks of Ottawa County, specifically Port Clinton, have shown their support for the young man. In fact, according to The News Herald, $2,234.97 was raised at the game by people sitting in the stands. Eryn Nason, a senior cheerleader for the ‘Skins, organized the event, known as the “Dash for Cash.”
The Redskins fell, 46-28, to Edison in the season finale, but the game will best be remembered for what the community did to support our local hero, Devin.

With the loss, the Redskins finish the season 0-10 overall and 0-7 in the Sandusky Bay Conference.
Port Clinton was able to keep it close, trailing 19-14 midway thru the second quarter before the Chargers pulled away, pushing the lead to 33-14 in the third period.

As with many of Port Clinton’s games this year, the ‘Skins were able to put up their share of points on the board. They averaged 17.7 points, but gave up at least 33 points in every contest.

Port Clinton’s opponents had a combined record of 64-36 (.640), and four of those teams (Genoa, Perkins, Clyde, Huron) qualified for the playoffs.
Carmon, who had success at Fostoria before coming to Port Clinton, has one year under his belt with this group, and his players now have a year’s worth of experience running the spread offense after employing a run-based offense under previous head coach Toby Hammond.
