The Real Heros
THE REAL HEROES
On Saturday Sept. 19, I was at Southeastern High School getting ready to watch my daughter compete in a cross country race. As the boys race was near completion, a runner collapsed a short distance from me while still on the course. Another parent got to him before me, and when I came over to check on him, we both called for help.
We were assisted by the Southeastern Athletic Staff with their mobile cart, who helped us transport him to the football stadium. The Adena Sports Medicine trainer was there on the spot, and we began our assessment of him. After gathering a few vital signs, a grandfather standing nearby asked me if he could help, and I asked him to call 911 and activate the nearest EMT squad.
I was joined then by a registered nurse offering her assistance (I, the doctor, had a camera with me; she the nurse had a ‘doctors’ stethoscope and blood pressure monitor with her); a mother from the crowd (who had a glucometer and this athlete’s blood glucose reading for me in about 10 seconds); and the first volunteer EMT (who took command of dispatching emergency crews and later MedFlight). Soon after, the first wave of Liberty Township EMT volunteers arrived and we had two IVs (thank you EMTs and nurse for your critical thinking and skillset) and two bags of IV fluids rolling in wide open (thank you additional EMTs for holding those IV bags high over your heads for what seemed like eternity) and oxygen flowing (thank you again Liberty EMT volunteers, for your equipment, and your supplies, and your knowledge base, and your response time).
His vital signs responded but we were not seeing the improvement we wanted, and MedFlight was summoned. Then the athlete’s temperature suddenly rose (oh, yeah ... thanks registered nurse, who also happened to have a forehead thermometer with her, go figure) and between EMT/sports trainer/Southeastern staff/volunteers, about 10 large bags of ice were assembled and applied to him before I said anything. His temperature began to improve as the helicopter landed, but he had not fully regained consciousness.
2012 recipients of the Naismith Hall of Fame award
OHSAA Commissioner Dan Ross is pictured with J Paul White and Dale Creamer the two 2012 recipients of the Naismith Hall of Fame award. Also pictured is OHSAA Board President Tony Mantell, who is also a member of the Southeast District Athletic Board.
Paul White served his thirty-five year career in the same school district. He was hired in 1968 as a teacher/coach in the Bloom-Vernon Local School District in South Webster, Ohio, and retired from the district in 2003 where he had served the last thirteen years as local superintendent.
During his years at South Webster, he served as a teacher, J.V. and Varsity basketball coach, A.D./assistant principal, high school principal and local superintendent.
Paul was also responsible for leading the school district to expand its athletic program, which consisted of baseball and basketball for boys only in 1968, into a range of offerings for both boys and girls which currently include: cross-country, golf, volleyball, boys’ and girls’ basketball, baseball, softball, boys’ and girls’ track and field and coed-soccer.
During his career, White also served the OHSAA, serving the Southeast District Athletic Board for fourteen years and the State Board of Control of the OHSAA for four years.
Paul received several awards and recognitions of accomplishments during his career, but is most proud of promoting and working with others to help them reach their full potential.
White is proud of the fact that at one time, six of the head coaches in the SOC (Southern Ohio Conference) were former players of his. He also promoted eighteen teachers that worked with him to administrative positions in various districts as either principals and/or superintendents during his tenure as a school administrator.
His son, Raegan is currently the superintendent of the Fayetteville-Perry Local School District in Brown County. His daughter, Courtney Heidelberg, is the communications director of the Florida State Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles in Tallahassee.
Naismith Service Award Presented to Dan Brisker
Following his graduation from Oak Hill High School in 1965, Dan Brisker matriculated to Capital University (Bachelor of Science degree in 1969) and eventually to The Ohio State University, where he received his Master of Arts degree in educational administration in 1973. At Capital, Dan was a four year letter winner in basketball and golf.
Dan began his 36-year career in education at Columbus Bishop Ready High School (1969-70) before moving to Canal Winchester High School as the head basketball coach (1970-78). During his eight years at Winchester, Dan’s teams won 75 percent of their games and he became the school’s athletic director and assistant principal. He spent two years in the Gallipolis City Schools (1978-80), 11 years as principal at Kyger Creek High School in Cheshire (1980-81), and 15 years in the Wellston City School District, retiring in 2006 after serving six years as superintendent.
