Nice job frecriss! This must have taken quite awhile to put together -- amazing the talent that comes out of Barberton - that's why we're the Magic City!

Thanks!

As I stated, this list is not complete. I know that Dave Cooper, Bob Velloney and Chuck Kelley all coached varsity programs at the High School Level and that Bob Addis and Joe Griffiths held positions that I did not list. I am still working on that. Also, it is likely that there are additional grads that I have not mentioned at all. That is the fun of doing the research that I do.

Obviously, those who are/were coaching at Barberton have contributed. Other: Sickler was a main stay at Barberton for decades. Naragon and Davis certainly have contributed to Barberton. Loeffler, I know, used to participate in Barbertons football camp, I am not sure if he still does. Hunter, Griffiths, Russo, Dimitroff and Mackovic all were Assistant Football Coaches for Barberton. Tammy Simmons is part of the Sports Hall of Fame Selection Commitee. Schembechler always recruited Barberton getting Larry Ricks and Chuck Rowland to play for him and he also recruited Robbie Robertson and Marcus McKinnie but didn't land them. Bo also gave Mackovic his first coaching position, grad assistant at Miami while Bo was the head coach there. He also brought Hunter with him to Michigan. Mackovic did the same while the head coach at Wake Forest bringing both Burnette and Strimel with him. Dave Cooper, who will be on the list shortly, is the President of the Barberton Sports Hall of Fame. That is off the top of my head, I am sure there are others.

So it looks like some have, I only ask bc I have not heard of any of those that have made it far with any ties to Barberton except Loeffler.

Does the Name Dave Buttermore ring a bell? He came to Steubenville as an assistant football coach when I was in Jr High and I would have sworn he was a Barberton alum.

Rudy Sharkey (relation to the Sharkey mentioned here?) was Larry Kehres' OC at Mount for some time, but I think Rudy was also a Magic. I went to KSU and took "Coaching Football" as an elective and he taught our class.

Here are two brothers to add to the list. Al Taracuk, '74, was an assistant coach at RPI in Troy, NY. The current defensive coordinator with the Patriots was on the team at that time. Doug Taracuk, '71, is the current offensive line coach at Capital University after a 42 year high school coaching career.
