“Steve’s coverage, communication, relationships with the student-athletes and pictures were second to none. The players and parents absolutely loved being able to see updates @ohiovarsity on Twitter and at the Ohio Varsity website. I got incredible feedback from multiple people throughout the basketball season. He was always quick to respond to any of my updates or questions and made the process very easy on my end. We will no doubt be using him again as he made quite an impression on our coaching staff, players, parents, and fans!”

“This was the greatest change I made to our athletic department. The entire community won as a result of this change. We were able to connect with our athletes, teachers, family members and alumni. Our community support improved as a result. I think we competed harder and won more games due to our media and marketing change.”

“My name is Luke Smrdel and I am the head baseball coach at Kirtland High School. Since 1999 I have been playing and coaching baseball in the Cleveland area, during which I have dealt with almost all of the local media sources. The one that truly stands out from the others is Ohio Varsity. With truly dedicated reporters, Ohio Varsity provides in-depth coverage of our team, conference, statistics and more. They make sure to include every player on our team at some point during the year, along with hundreds of high-quality pictures and complete box scores of every game. 

“As a coach, it is easy to talk with their very knowledgeable staff during interviews! They are easy to reach and you are never put on hold. As a fan, I mainly read Ohio Varsity articles to keep up with our school’s other sports. They are quickly emailed at the conclusion of every game for all to enjoy!

“With all of these great things Ohio varsity provides, most would assume there is nothing else they could do to make it better for the kids. But, they also happen to host the best local all-star game in the area as well.

“The Ohio Varsity All-Star Classic, a fundraiser for The Wounded Warrior Project, is an awesome experience for everyone. I was fortunate enough to coach in this game in 2015, which was an honor in many ways. I was able to coach the areas best players and support our Armed Forces in the same day!”

~Luke Smrdel, Baseball Coach, Kirtland High School

“Steve provided great coverage for our team this season. In an age where high school sports get less and less print coverage – Steve and Ohio Varsity help fill that gap and provided our players with great pictures, game stories, and interviews following a number of contests this season. Part of the thrill of playing high school sports is seeing your name in the paper, or getting interviewed after a game – and Ohio Varsity provided those life long memories for our players and our team this year. I will definitely be a repeat customer next season – and appreciate that hard work that Steve and Ohio Varsity does to promote high school teams and athletes.”
