GV’s Hart is a Ringer

At 5-foot-9 and 170 pounds, he isn’t your normal-sized defensive end.

But, physical dimensions are no way to measure the size of a Hart, especially when it comes to Grand Valley’s Jason Hart.

The Mustang senior stripped a Pymatuning Valley ballcarrier of the football in the fourth quarter and scampered 86 yards for what proved to be the decisive score in Grand Valley’s 22-16 triumph in the annual battle between archrivals that was also for undisputed possession of first place in the Northeastern Athletic Conference.

For his efforts, Hart is the Week 8 Ringer Screen Print Ashtabula County Player of the Week.

He will receive a hooded sweatshirt, compliments of John Ringer, main man of Ringer Screen Print (and a former superstar for the Harbor Mariners), at the annual Ashtabula County Touchdown Club dinner and awards banquet on Dec. 9 at Our Lady of Peace (formerly Mount Carmel).

Hart’s honor makes it back-to-back weeks a Mustang has earned the award as teammate Jake Vormelker was the Week 7 honoree.

Other winners this season have been Aaron Rossi of Geneva in Week 1, Cole Erdel of Jefferson in Week 2, Tyler Loftus of Lakeside in Week 3, Troy Colucci of Conneaut in Week 4, Brandon Pakkala of Geneva in Week 5 and Anthonie Magda and Riis Smith of Edgewood in Week 6.

  • Don A Don McCormack column: ‘Kids’ stuff’ spurs great responses

    I’m often caught more than a bit off-guard by what stories, features or columns generate responses from you, Loyal Readers, much more so than those who do not.
    For example, the column that appeared in this space a couple of days ago regarding things yours truly and my buddies did as kids prompted more than a few responses.
    A sampling, many of which were posted on my Facebook page:

  • Olivia In transition

    Pymatuning Valley graduate Olivia Holt had a distinct reason she chose to play basketball for Mount Union.
    “They do have tradition,” Holt, the daughter of Gus and Michelle Holt, said. “I’m from PV. We had a tradition of winning and working hard there. I wanted to go somewhere that tradition mattered. I knew I was going to get better by coming here.”

  • Don A Don McCormack column: Spring has sprung one big leak

    Paying a Wednesday morning visit to the variety store...

    Think spring?
    If this, um, err, uh... spring... feels a bit unusual for high school baseball and softball teams in Northeast Ohio, it is, to a point.
