Kent State football player remembered by teammates
Other headlines: Court rules county could be liable for deadly crash; Surgery scheduled for OSU quarteback Braxton Miller

  • Court rules county could be liable for deadly crash
  • Surgery scheduled for OSU quarteback Braxton Miller
  • Court rules county could be liable for deadly crash
    An appeals court says a northeastern Ohio county could be liable in the death of a 17-year-old girl who apparently lost control while driving on a road under repair.

    At issue is the absence of white lines on the rural road in Wayne County during the repair project in 2011.

    The parents of crash victim Kelli Baker say the county is liable because the condition of the road contributed to the accident, including the lack of lines and steep berms.

    A judge had rejected the family's lawsuit, saying the county had immunity, but the Ninth District Court of Appeals overturned that decision last week.


    Kent State football player remembered by teammates
    A Kent State university football player who was found dead this week in his off-campus apartment will be laid to rest on Monday in his hometown of Dayton.

    Jason Bitsko, the 21 year-old starting center for the Golden Flashes, died unexpectedly Wednesday morning due to an undisclosed medical condition.

    Kent State players will wear Bitsko’s number 54 on their helmets to honor him this season.


    Surgery scheduled for OSU quarteback Braxton Miller
    OSU quarterback Braxton Miller is scheduled to have shoulder surgery on Tuesday according to the Columbus Dispatch.

    The injury is to repair a torn labrum. Like the injury sustained in the Orange Bowl, the tear is a partial one, not a complete tear, the source said.

    Renowned sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews will perform the operation in Pensacola, Fla.

    Miller had shoulder surgery in February and was being eased into action during preseason camp. But on Monday he reinjured the shoulder putting him out for the season.

    Freshman J.T. Barrett is expected to take over for Miller this season.

    Miller said that he intends to return to the Buckeyes in 2015.
