Dantin stepped up when UT needed him

LETTERS TO THE SPORTS EDITOR

It has been doc­u­mented that this has been a very dif­fi­cult year for Univer­sity of Toledo quar­ter­back Austin Dantin.

After hav­ing years of early suc­cess, his se­nior year be­came a test of his char­ac­ter. Mr. Dantin started the sea­son’s first game as the start­ing quar­ter­back. Over re­cent past sea­sons there has been a ri­valry for who would start at quar­ter­back, Ter­rance Owens or Dantin. It so hap­pened that Dantin, af­ter the sea­son’s first game this year, lost the po­si­tion to Mr. Owens.

Un­doubt­edly, this had to be the worst pos­si­ble de­vel­op­ment in the fi­nal year of his col­lege ca­reer. I’m sure he had a dif­fi­cult time deal­ing with the sit­u­a­tion, but he made the right de­ci­sion. He toughed it out and he would be ready to help his team if his num­ber was called again. Well it hap­pened, his num­ber was called and he stepped up and per­formed — five touch­down passes in a 35-23 UT vic­tory over Akron .

Good luck Austin, wher­ever you go.

Con­grats to Pan­thers

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Toledo Whit­mer. Your guys came out and handed it to our Massil­lon Tigers. Great game plan, and speed to burn.

Hope to play you guys in the fu­ture. Good luck in the play­offs. Nice band also, but please, no more Mich­i­gan fight song at half­time.
