1976 and 1981 Football Champs

Video of Ceremony

The 1976 football team won the Wayne Trace League Championship. The Wayne Trace League was a short lived conference which included the 5 Preble County schools and 2 schools from Butler County. The team finished the season with a 9-1 overall record. The coach of that team was the legendary Clarence “Mo” Molitor, TVS hall of fame member. Tonight he is represented on the field by his wife Jan and daughter Molly. One of the highlights of the ‘76 season was a first game victory over Middletown Fenwick, who at that time was a local powerhouse. The team would have been perfect if not for a close defeat to Eaton. One call in the game cost the team a victory. This call will always be known as the bull call. Many members of this team still hold school records and also received all state honors.

The 1981 football championship was TVS first Cross County Conference title in any sport. This team also completed their season with a 9-1 record. The coach of the team was long time TVS coach and hall of fame member Mike Fahrenholz, who is present tonight. The 1981 team still holds the school record for most consecutive games won in a season with nine. This team was blessed to have both speed and toughness. As one team member stated about the season:

We had been together since junior high, loved playing together, remember the support from the community and winning the championship for the coach.

As previously mentioned, this team also still holds school records and had members who went on to earn all state honors.
