eo o Bob Crable was a football star at Moeller, Notre Dame and with the New York Jets. Then he built a successful sportswear business. But the death of a relative left him searching for more. He has found some answers in religion and academics. Bob Crable's hero was his older cousin and a baseball player, which, for a while, he in· tended to be, too. Jack Crable teamed with Buddy Bell at Moeller High School and broke into pro ball around the same time, lasting not nearly as long. This, however, didn't diminish him in the eyes of his father's brother's son, who, while leading Moeller to its first state football championship, setting Notre Dame's record for tackles, playing seven years for the New York Jets and building a successful sportswear business, stayed as close as he could to Jack and his wife, Robin. As his knees healed, his family grew and his company took off, Crable figured he had life pretty much licked. What changed his mind was the solemn observation that Jack and Robin didn't. WHEELER The mortal enemy was Robin's breast cancer. "As the cancer progressed, I was con· fused," he said. "When she passed away, it got me searching for the meaning of life. Business wasn't providing that. I didn't know where my life was going at that point." Knowing only that he couldn't keep doing what he was doing, Crable stepped away from the business that was going so welL The hard part wasn't giving up the income, but ducking out on the outfit that had been started as a subsidiary of the Midland Company largely because Midland's chairman, Joe Hayden, had grown enamored of Crable while coaching

At the time, however, it wasn't coaching that intrigued Crable as much as the environ· ment, both acJiLdemic and reli· gious, that defined Moeller High SchooL Realizing it, he signed up for seminary classes and undertook to teach the things he was learning from them and life. What Crable does now in his upperclassman courses Moral Theology and Christian Lifestyles - is apply religion to everyday endeavors. Marriage and tragedy rate high among the circumstances he helps his students deal with spiritually, and so, not surprisingly, does footbalL "For eight years at Moeller and Notre Dame, I had a strong formation in all of that," he said. "I call it athletic theology." That, Crable hopes, is what he will bring to his high school as its fourth football coach in 40 years. "I don't think it's a matter of winning and losing," he said. "I just believe that if you can develop that spirit, you can develop as a champion."

in 1977. him as an intimidating pitcher and oversized second baseman. "I think Mr. Hayden was disappointed," Crable said, "but it was a real tough time. I felt unfulfilled." The person he turned to was Steve Klonne, who had been a Moeller assistant when Crable played there and became the school's head coach in 1982. This was 10 years later, and Klonne was delighted to accept the volunteer assistance of the all-American linebacker, whom The Post named in 1999 as Cincin. nati's Defensive Plaver of the Century. ·

Another 12 yards, and Gerry Faust's first state championship would have had to wait another year. But there was a substantial linebacker for Lakewood St. Edward to get around first. Crable was only a sopho· more in 1975, but Faust had known him since a Moeller assistant, Phil Gigliotti, came back from a 7th-grade game in a big hurry to tell the coach about a defensive prodigy at St. Vincent. Gigliotti sensed right away that Crable was the kind of kid whom Faust was trying to build around. There were other factors that contributed to the three consecutive state champion· ships that began in 1975 - the dynasty that was gathering at the young school on Montgom· ery Road - but it all started with the coach and the line· backer. It started with the St. Edward fumble that Crable re· covered at the 12. To Faust, the winner in Crable was the character in him, none of which has changed much in a quarter· century. The old Moeller coach understood that when he and Gigliotti sat down last week with the new Moeller coach.

t ...... "


"He went over everything he was going to do and how he was going to do it," said Faust, who woh ~0 of his last 71 games at Moeller and built the school into an almost perennial national champion. "He talked about his philosophy, and what traditions he wanted to carry forth. Phil and I came out of there saying there isn't a better man for the job. He was the person I wanted to see get the job, although that had no influence on him getting it." The choice was made by principal Dan Ledford, who learned l!l.t.e of Crable's candidacy. As th'e Klonne saga followed its curious. course - first he was coming back for one more year, then he wasn't Jack Crable's cousin was thinking along other lines. Not long before, he had approached Ledford about merging into school administration, but hard thinking and .evening prayer soon led him in another direction. On an awkward Sunday night, Crable called his friend Klonne to find out what the veteran coach thought about him as a successor. Klonne's advice that was he would do well if he were willing to rededicate himself to the game. Shortly thereafter, Crable's meeting with Ledford occurred spontaneously in the faculty lounge. "The last time we talked," the teacher said, "it was about administration. So I wanted to let you know I'm interested in the coaching job." And who wasn't? Although Moeller no longer stood astride Ohio football, Klonne had preserved th~ overall excellence of the program. He had somehow managed to win 169 games- nearly nine a year - without making enemies along the way. · Klonne had not maintained the high profile that made Faust so famous, but even Crable - Moeller's most accomplished player (not counting baseball types such as Bell, Barry Larkin and Ken Griffey Jr.) - would be hard-pressed and perhaps unwilling to match that.' ' "Fuzzy was the one who was out there selling the program," said Crable, whose four children and lively pace have trimmed him down considerably from his playing days. "I will never discount his promotion of Moeller High School.

"He was here 14 hours a day, and he sacrificed a great deal of his family life. Am I willing to allow my family to sacrifice? I don't think I am." The thing is, he already made one hard sacrifice, many years ago. He gave up baseball.

DOD

The career choice belted Crable in the summer of 1977. "I'll tell you when I realized I was not going to play baseball," he said. "Bud Middaugh was the coach at Miami, and after my junior year of high school he said, 'I want you to know exactly what I think of you as a baseball player. I'll give you a scholarship, but there's a catch. You can't play ·football.' "You couldn't have punched me iri the face any harder than that hit me. When he said that, I realized that my heart was with football." The fact is, Crable pitched like a linebacker and defended second base as if it were a goal line. Joe Hayden thinks he could have made the major leagues that way. "He was a football player in a ba~ebaH player's uniform," said Hayden. "And he was crazy. He had those slant eyes, and he had a little smile on his face. But when he had that smile on, ,he was vety dangerous." This proved helpful when Crable pitched. Batters approached him warily after calculating the sum of his little smile, his big fastball and his unconcern with where it went. "I'll tell you the kind of baseball player I was," Crable said, still amused by the recollection. "You know how, when a batter hits a home run, the pitcher will sometimes knock him down the next time? Well, you didn't have to hit a home run for me to knock you down. I had a football temperament." He also had a coach's temperament. Crable was more than happy to be Hayden's enforcer, believing in the team rules as much as the man who made them. Once, when an angry teammate tossed his glove in the air, Crable warned him that, "If that ever comes down, you know you're off the team." It did, and he was. Then there was the occasion when Bill Long, who would become a major-league pitcher, made the mistake of missing a practice.

t -J J·-6}

"I told Bobby that I want to see Billy Long," Hayden said. "All of a sudden here comes Bobby and Billy, and Billy says, 'Coach, can I see you alone for a minute?' "We step to the side and Billy Long says, 'Coach, I'll do anything you want if you just promise me one thing. Promise you'll never send Crable after me again.' " Thereafter, the big ballplayer confined his ferocity to the football field. He didn't even play baseball as a senior, which delighted Notre Dame. Once there, he was textbook Irish, twice captaining the club and twice breaking the school record for tackles. His last year in South Bend was Faust's first, and his was the better of the two. The Jets drafted him in the first round. He served them well until his knees retired. The knees are sufficient for his latest assignment, however, to which Crable hopes to bring a little of all his former coaches arid a lot of what his soul-searching has revealed. "I think winning," he said, leaning forward on a chair in the film room, "is a byproduct of creating men of Moeller." It's a challenge that he . thoroughly understands. And in case he didn't, Hayden made it perfectly clear in a congratulatory note he sent to Crable shortly after Moeller had named its new coach. "You're in a job that's just wonderful," Hayden wrote. "All you have to do is win 15 games in a 12-game schedule and hold all your opponents scoreless while averaging 50 points a game. If you do that, they'll love you."

6- L{_(} J

All star competitions rarely live up to their names. Plenty of stars, not much actual competition. The East-West high school football allstar game proved an exception June 14 at Lockland's Roettger Stadium. The East squad beat the West 21-16 before an estimated crowd of 4,500. The teams played the game as if a state champions!Tip~.~rophy - not an all-star game plaque- was on the line. "From day one we made it clear, we were definitely here to win," said Chuck Warden, the East's head coach and head football coach at Loveland. "To prepare for any other reason doesn't make sense." "You want to have fun, but it's not fun unless you're doing well," said Turpin safe-' ty Pat Sullivan. "You definitely want -to win." East took a 14-7lead on a New Richmond quarterback Matt Armbruster's 13-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter. West fought back with a touchdo.wn run by Northwest's Darren Schneider to tie the score 14-14 with 4:30 left in the game. East took possession at its own 22-yard

line. Moeller tailback Marcus Blanks ran I 0 yards for a first down. Armbruster followed with a roll left, throw right pass to Moeller's Ohio State-bound tight end Ryan Hamby. Then Purcell Marian tailback Justin Blackley broke the biggest play of the night, a 49-yard run down the left side of the field for a touchdown. "They were coming in strong the whole game, so we just had to get the linebacker," Blackley said. "I only had like one man to dog. We've got a lot of great players. T'm just privileged, I had a great line blocking for me." Still, West wasn't dead yet. Behind Schneider's passing, the West drove to the East 25. Players and fans joined in cheering the defense, quite the display of unity for a group of players who were gridiron enemies last fall. "It's awesome," said Kings running back Mike Vanscoy. "After the first couple days, everybody gets their hardness out of the way, and everybody mixed. We make a pretty good team." The West did not convert a fourth-and-six with 1:20 left and East took possco.sion. Anderson quarterback Kenny Riddell ran out of the back of the end zone for a safety in the final minute, but the two points proved a

formality. ~ When the clock read zero, East players rushed each other with a celebration worthy of a homecoming victory and gathered for a chant at midfield. "It's more than a regular· game," said Bethel-Tate linebacker Ben Manning. "It's really intense. It's nice to end my senior year with one more win." Several other local players shared the victory. The 2001 East roster included Hamby, Blanks and offensive lineman Andrew Smith of Moeller, along with Sycamore defensive back Tim Dickerson. Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy lineman Robby Schomaker played for the West. All three Moeller players were on the East's first team offense. Hamby was the squad's leading receiver. "It's an honor tci play with the guys you've played with on Friday nights one last time," he said. The Cincinnati East- West game dates back to 1971. The West had won 12 of the last 18 all-star contests.· "We h11d a tradition to uphold," Warden said. "We knew conditioning would be key. We knew field position would be key. And we knew we'd get a big play from one of our backs. and we did. Our kids came to practice and p!'epared to win.''

"Like I said, with limited practice it:,s hard to sustain a drive," W~rden said. "Field position and the punting game in a game like this can make the difference." As for the substitutions, Warden said most of the players are not in top football shape. A hot, humid night could wear on them by the end of the game. "We have to make sure we do it right in the first half to make sure people are ready to go in the fourth quarter,'' he said. How is East preparing fo~ a West team that includes such marquee players as tailback Earl Haynes of Fairfield and the Talawanda passing duo of quarterback Ryan Holmes and receiver Stephen Napier? "We're following a pretty basic practice plan,'' Warden said. "Some group work, some specials, some team work. At this point we're really just trying to polish ancl review.

his 9-5 record against Moeller High School, another program steeped in tradition. The Panthers are the only school to post a winning record versus the Crusaders. Moeller,or"Big Moe" as they are known throughout the GCL, has a tradition that sels the standard for high school football in the Greater Cincinnati area. Under the leadership of the legendary Gerry Faust, Big Moe, with their gold and blue stars on their pants and helmels, created a dynasty in high school football. Since 1963 the Crusaders have posted a 340-59-2 record. They were the state of Ohio's winningest program in the 1970s and '80s. Moeller has won the Greater

Catholic League title 22 times, and have been crowned city champions 17 times. They have brought home seven state titles and proudly wave the banners of five national titles. The Crusaders have gone undefeated 12 times, and over 35 players have been high school Ail-Americans. No other school may ever repeat the run that Moeller had throughout the '70s and '80s.

Current coach Steve Klonne is in his 20th season as head coach of the Crusadels, and believes the tradition of excellence at

Moeller is still alive and well. "Many of the past players like Hiawatha Francisco and Djuan Francisco still come back and visit," said Klonne. "The current players know who they are, and how great they were . It helps keep tradition strong, and players striving to be better",he added. Moeller's following goes beyond the bounds of Cincinnati, as several players in the late 1970s and early '80s were actually from Kentucky- players llike Don Duckworth and Tim Odom grew up in the town of Villa Hills, Ky. With today's new rules of eligibility, top players are staying home a~d playing for Northern Kentucky powerhouses like Beechwood and
