Take a look at some videos, articles, and upcoming events.
Marion Motley, an NFL Hall of Famer from Canton, was one of four men who helped to re-integrate professional football in 1946. I am one of the producers of this documentary that sheds light on this achievement a year before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball.
When we got off the bus, we were met by Mary Ann Ahern from NBC 5 News Chicago. She was a wonderful lady who interviewed the kids. Later that day as we walked into a restaurant from Chicago-style pizza, we saw ourselves on the news.
Our journalism students had the honor of being invited to Chicago for the Mayoral inauguration of Lori Lightfoot, a 1980 Massillon Washington graduate. We were also invited to her private luncheon at City Hall following the inauguration. Check out how it all happened here.
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
When LeBron made his announcement that he was leaving the Miami Heat to return to Cleveland to play for the Cavaliers, I was contacted by a Cleveland TV station to do an interview. This interview was done just outside LeBron's home in Bath, OH, minutes from Akron.
This video captures me at a book signing at Barnes and Noble talking about how and why I decided to write books on Jim Tressel and LeBron James. They were two of the most popular sports figures in Ohio at the time.
