Dietz brothers set to lead CCD By Anthony Amorini

All things offense will once again revolve around the brothers Dietz for the Cincinnati Country Day Indians. Senior running back Max Dietz is the “focal point” of the Indians’ offense after taking Division VI All State honors in 2008, head Dunn coach Tim Dunn said. Max received handoffs, pitches and passes from his older brother Alex Dietz, a 2009 graduate, last fall. Sophomore Jake Dietz takes over at quarterback for Alex and gives Max yet another sibling delivering the ball. “We think our skill guys are good enough to make us a threat, but Alex was very effective,” Dunn said of shifting to a sophomore Dietz at quarterback rather than a senior. “We hope we can pass a little to keep some balance, but we’ll see how it goes with a sophomore quarterback.” Judging from Alex’s and Max’s successes in 2008, Dunn hopes Jake hits the ground running, he said. Max led CCD with 1,163 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns last fall. He also accounted for 627 yards receiving. Alex threw for almost 1,200 yards and rushed for more than 400 yards as a senior. Senior running back Lawrence Ervin is also a returning starter for the Indians. Ervin scored 36 points for the Indians as a junior. On the offensive line, seniors Matt Lesser and Clint Thomas are the only players returning for Dunn. “We don’t have a lot of size on the line and they are young,” Dunn said. “We will be depending a lot on the young guys on the line.” Defensively, Ervin returns to the Indians’ secondary after tallying 100 tackles including 75 unassisted in 2008. Junior inside linebacker Wyatt Tiffany finished with 74 tackles last fall and returns to anchor the Indians’ defense alongside Ervin, Dunn said. Lesser and Thomas, both defensive linemen, finished

with 45 tackles and 40 tackles, respectively. Thomas also produced nine sacks for CCD. “I think we still have to grow a lot as a team,” Dunn said while looking forward to games against 2008 playoff teams including North College Hill, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy and Lockland. “We have to have a good night to beat any one of those three teams, but it would be nice,” Dunn added.

Cincinnati SportsMedicine will have Saturday morning sports injury clinics throughout the Fall sports season Hearing a “pop” coming down from a rebound

and colliding with another player last year, Shaun A., a junior small forward from Miami University-Hamilton knew exactly what had happened and who to call. “I tore my right ACL in high school and our team athletic trainer recommended Dr. Marc Galloway at Cincinnati SportsMedicine and Orthopaedic Center,” says Shaun. “That surgery made my knee stronger than ever. So when I heard the same “pop” in my other knee I knew what to do.” “It is not uncommon for a patient to suffer an ACL tear in the opposite knee,” remarks Marc Galloway, M.D. sports orthopaedic surgeon at CSMOC. “This is a phenomenon we are hoping to address by developing specific prevention programs. The good news is Shaun responded as well to his second procedure as his first and the strong dedication he showed in both recoveries can be seen on the court this season.” “Dr. Galloway and the rehab team helped me focus on my goals and to reach them. My left knee is actually stronger now after the surgery. Both knees are feeling great and the quad and jumping exercises they had me do made my jumping better. I’m looking forward to playing my senior year.”

A parent’s worst nightmare is seeing their child in

anguish for any reason. For Debbie K. of Pennsylvania, it was watching her daughter, Bethany face the harsh reality that her collegiate soccer career was over, one year too soon. A three-time American Mideast Conference Player of the Year, Bethany was sidelined due to excruciating knee pain and failed surgeries. Call it coincidence or call it fate, Bethany’s aunt in Los Angeles, California also suffered knee pain and researched Dr. Frank Noyes’ name from the internet and recommended him to her niece. Dr. Noyes discovered a rare, overlooked, complication with Bethany’s prior meniscus repair procedures and was able to restore her knee and relieve her unrelenting pain. “Bethany had multiple complex knee injuries that are rare to see and require a special level of training and expertise found only in an orthopaedic center of excellence,” says Frank R. Noyes, M.D., Director, CSMOC. “Our patient focused treatment included proven clinical, surgical and rehabilitation options. This care, combined with Bethany’s determination and motivation, produced a remarkable outcome.” How did Bethany do following Dr. Noyes’ surgery? She capped her career at Houghton College with a 4th Player of the Year honor and was the leading all-time scorer among other titles. “It was a true miracle what he was able to do for her,” says Debbie K. “For someone who thought her career had ended too soon, it was a miraculous ending for my daughter.”
