Rossford to induct 2 into its hall of fame

John Miller and Dan Almester will be inducted into the Rossford athletic hall of fame Friday before the boys varsity basketball game against Otsego.

Miller (1983 graduate) received eight letters as a three-sport standout. In football, he was the captain and All-Northern Lakes League first team running back and defensive tackle while helping Rossford claim the 1982 league championship. He was named the NLL most valuable player and was all-district.

As a senior, he was 21-5 in wrestling and advanced to the district, while in track he was a member of the 400-meter relay team that reached the regional.

He was the Toledo Christian football coach from 2006-10 and led the Eagles to their first Toledo Area Athletic Conference championship and two playoff appearances.

Almester (1997) collected 11 letters in wrestling, soccer, and baseball. He placed third in state in wrestling and was a two-time NLL champion and four-time district qualifier, finishing with a 108-33 career record.

In soccer, he was an All-NLL first-team as a junior and senior. He recorded 47 goals and a school-record 28 assists in his career.
