Dayton Christian hires Moyer, former Bengal, to lead football team

MIAMISBURG -- Dayton Christian School System is pleased to announce the selection of former Cincinnati Bengal Ken Moyer as its new high school football coach. Moyer brings over 22 years of NFL experience as well as 8 years of coaching to his new position. Dayton Christian is excited to welcome him with his impressive history and proven record as an exemplary football player, teacher, coach, and Christian mentor.

Moyer’s achievements and his commitment to helping develop not only exceptional football players but also student athletes of character and spiritual growth make Moyer a great fit for Dayton Christian. “I am excited for the opportunity to be a part of the Warriors’ future. My goal and passion is to help build total athletes—young men who enjoy great success on the sporting field and also great success on the playing field of life.”

Moyer will finish out this school year as a math teacher at Oak Hills High School in Cincinnati but will begin interacting with the DC football players and coaches immediately. President Bob Elliott is eager for Moyer to begin implementing his clear vision of what it takes to produce a winning football team, helping take DC’s developing program to the next level and contributing overall to DC’s continued pursuit of growth and excellence.

Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis concurs: "It's great to hear that Ken is getting this opportunity with a young and developing football program. Ken has just the mix of attributes and experience you would seek in a high school coach. He knows football from the inside out, and he knows how hard you have to work. He came to the NFL as an undrafted free agent and would end up becoming a Bengals starter. Secondly, he cares deeply about the personal development of young people and will be great working with the players both on and off the field. He's a top-notch individual, gentle but strong, and he did a great job for us during his time as our team chaplain. I know I speak for everyone at the Bengals when I say we wish Ken the absolute very best."
DCSS President Bob Elliott is thrilled to add Moyer to his fine faculty at DC as a high level math teacher as well, stating, “I am very excited to have Ken on our faculty. We strive to surround our students with high-quality teachers who also speak God’s truth into our students’ lives and who model Christ before them in a real and life-changing way. Ken has a proven record in the classroom as well as the football field as an excellent teacher and coach.”Dayton Christian hires Moyer, former Bengal, to lead football team

BREWERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Cueto pitched seven solid innings, and the Cincinnati Reds stayed in the chase for the NL's top record by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Tuesday night after learning they'll be without their manager for the rest of the week.

The Brewers dropped back-to-back games for the first time in more than a month, and it came at a bad time. They started the day 3 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild card spot.

They got no break from the Reds, who clinched the NL Central title on Saturday night.

Manager Dusty Baker met players before the game and revealed he suffered a mini-stroke in addition to being treated for an irregular heartbeat last week. The 63-year-old manager hopes to return to the dugout next week.

REDS-BAKER

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Dusty Baker won't manage the Cincinnati Reds until the final series in St. Louis, giving him time to recover from an irregular heartbeat that left him hospitalized last week.

Baker met with owner Bob Castellini and his team on Tuesday before a game against the Brewers. Bench coach Chris Speier said he'll manage the final three home games against Milwaukee and three in Pittsburgh over the weekend, with Baker taking over for the last three games next week.

The 63-year-old manager was hospitalized in Chicago last Wednesday for an irregular heartbeat, a problem he's had for a while. He was in the hospital for four days, missing the Reds' 6-0 win over the Dodgers on Saturday night that clinched the NL Central title.

INDIANS-WHITE SOX

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have lost sole possession of first place in the AL Central race, with the Indians playing spoiler. Gordon Beckham hit into a game-ending forceout with the potential tying run on second base yesterday as the Indians downed the White Sox 4-3.

Down 4-0 in the fourth inning, the White Sox closed within a run when Paul Konerko homered off Chris Perez leading off the ninth. Perez walked a pair of batters with two outs, and Beckham grounded to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who threw to second baseman Jason Kipnis for the force.

Chicago (82-72) had held sole possession of the division lead since September 3. Detroit pulled into a tie for the division lead with its win over Kansas City last night.

T25-OHIO ST-MATCHING UP

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Through four games and four victories, Ohio State's defense has faced a continual drumbeat of short passes, quick routes, screens and sweeps.

Every opponent, it seems, has relied on a sleight of hand.

Now the Buckeyes are looking forward to getting into familiar territory when they open Big Ten play.

When No. 14 Ohio State travels to 20th-ranked Michigan State on Saturday, the Buckeyes anticipate they'll run into a more conventional Midwestern attack. Granted, that means having to counteract the 244-pound blasts of the Spartans' massive Le'Veon Bell.

But after a month of chasing people, the Buckeyes think they might benefit from a change of pace from the subterfuge and rush-avoiding quick-hitters in a trade for raw man-on-man power struggles at the line of scrimmage.

T25-UPTIGHT SPARTANS

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State's lackluster win last weekend got to coach Mark Dantonio.

After the Spartans beat Eastern Michigan 23-7 Saturday, Dantonio hurried through a terse news conference full of abrupt answers. The Michigan State coach said "next question" seven times in under a minute and was clearly annoyed with the way his team played.

On Tuesday, Dantonio spoke with reporters for around a half-hour, but Michigan State isn't making any players or assistants available this week. The Spartans' coach is trying to send a clear message to his players that it's time to get serious.
