New Coach, New Crooksville in 2012

It has been eight seasons since the Crooksville Ceramics last made the playoffs, but with a new head coach and a more positive outlook from the players, there is plenty of reason to be excited in 2012.  Longtime assistant and member of the 1977 state championship team Brent Gorby takes over at the helm for Dave Rupe, who stepped down as head coach in January.  Gorby earned the respect from his players immediately, and considering the strength of the Muskingum Valley League, a 8-2 or 7-3 season could put Crooksville back in the Division V playoffs.
