Without you none of this would be possible.

Volunteers of the RASBC work quietly behind the scenes carrying out our mission supporting the student athletes of Revere. These faithful volunteers work hundreds of hours each year for the benefit of our students, school and community. We are extremely grateful for their efforts.

We continue to grow our organization and increase the level of support for our student athletes. We are also extremely excited for the future of Revere. Last year we experienced a record increase in participation from middle and elementary school parents and we expect this trend continue.

High school football/Revere 24, Tallmadge 19: Minutemen build big lead, hold on to hand Blue Devils first loss

Suburban showdown ends with first defeat of year for Blue Devils

By Jeff Brewer
Special to the Beacon Journal

BATH TWP.: Revere football is back.

And Minutemen senior two-way standout Zach Lalkowski is lobbying for more Thursday night games.

Hosting its biggest home game in at least five years, Revere edged Tallmadge 24-19 in a Suburban League showdown at Pappano Stadium.

Behind second-year coach Mike Murphey, Revere (5-1, 3-0) used a dominant first half and survived four second-half turnovers to hand the Blue Devils (5-1, 2-1) their first loss of the season.

Revere led 17-0 at half behind the outstanding play of Lalkowski, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound wide receiver and defensive back. His two tough receptions for 45 yards, fumble recovery and interception were huge in the Minutemen building a lead at intermission.

Lalkowski (five receptions, 87 yards, one touchdown) had plenty of help. The Minutemen swarmed on defense and missed few tackles. Senior defenders Zeck Lehman and Jack Smith (having recovered from a broken hand) came up big for Revere.

The Minutemen also got a solid game from sophomore Clayton Langdon, who carried 16 times for 146 yards and one touchdown. Revere senior quarterback Chase Costanzo completed 12-of-21 throws for 177 yards and one touchdown.

Midway through the third quarter, a clutch 34-yard reception by senior Joe Siesel from senior quarterback Joseph Vassalotti (17-of-36 passing, 272 yards) to the Revere 2 put the Blue Devils on the doorstep. Senior C.J. Berg covered the final 2 yards and Tallmadge was back in the game, trailing 17-7 at 5:30 of the third quarter.

The Blue Devils pulled to within one score after Vassalotti’s completion to senior Latrele Moore resulted in a 71-yard catch-and-run touchdown. A botched extra point left the score at 17-13 with 2:21 left in the third.

Revere showed its mettle on the ensuing possession, driving 76 yards in six plays to go top 24-13 late in the third. Lalkowski finished the drive with an 18-yard scoring reception.

The Blue Devils did not go quietly. After a drive stalled at the Revere 11, Vassa­lotti and Moore hooked up on a 14-yard touchdown pass with 4:53 left to trim Tallmadge’s deficit to 24-19. A two-point pass was incomplete.

The Minutemen went cold on offense and their defense had to rise up to clinch the win. The Blue Devils had yet another opportunity with 2:57 to go and the ball at the 50.

A 33-yard touchdown run by Berg was wiped out by a holding penalty. Then Leh­man and senior Clay Erdie came up with sacks to force Tallmadge into a decisive fourth-and-20 with just over a minute left.

Vassalotti’s desperation pass was batted down and the Revere faithful heaved a sigh of relief.

Revere changed the pace of the game on its second possession, going no-huddle, and moving 54 yards in five plays to the end zone. Costanzo’s 18-yard pass completion to junior Nate Predjov and Langdon’s 31-yard run set up senior Nick Zimmerman’s 4-yard scoring run at 3:55 of the first quarter.

Langdon popped a 44-yard yard touchdown run through the middle of the field and Revere led 14-0 midway through the second quarter.

Langdon’s 15-yard run to convert on third down and a great grab by Lalkowski along the Revere sideline enabled Minutemen senior Brady Tieland to kick a 30-yard field goal with 10 seconds left in the half.

Gerberich MAAC

EDISON, N.J. – Niagara Purple Eagles freshman goalkeeper Joel Gerberich was named the MAAC Wilson Rookie of the Week after wins over Big 4 rivals Buffalo and St. Bonaventure last weekend.

He opened the two-game set with a three-save performance through 90 minutes of a 2-1 victory over Buffalo in the home opener. The lone goal allowed came on a penalty kick. He followed up with a six-save second half against St. Bonaventure that allowed his squad to come away with a 1-0 win in overtime. The win over the Bonnies was his first collegiate shutout. In total, he played over 182 minutes and made nine saves for a .900 save percentage and a 0.49 goals against average.

“Joel has been solid for us all year both making saves and dealing with crosses,” head coach Eric Barnes said after the shutout on Sunday. “His stats haven’t done him justice. He was an integral part in earning the win on Friday as well as keeping the clean sheet today. He has a very bright future.”

The Purple Eagles are back in action this Sunday when they host Detroit at 2:00 p.m. at Niagara Field.

Attention to detail and working hard are just a couple of traits that Nolan Dyko carries with him every day.

Dyko displays a humble personality that any coach would welcome on a sports team.

His intelligence and talent helped him graduate from Revere High School and have him on course for a bright future at the University of Cincinnati.

He plans to major in engineering in college, and will do so after being selected the Akron Beacon Journal Male Scholar Athlete of the Year for the 2013-2014 school year

“Nolan’s time management has really been a key part of his success,” said his mother, Colleen Dyko. “Nolan is quiet and unassuming, but when you get him on the field, he is very competitive.”

Dyko, a National Honor Society member, compiled a 3.84 grade-point average. He scored a 33 on his ACT and helped Revere win the Division II boys soccer state championship as a senior.

Revere Athletic Administrator Bill Schumacher and coaches Jason Cottrell and Sandor Jakab nominated Dyko for the award.

“It is amazing to see the changes over the years, especially in the last several years from entering high school as a young kid to fully grown,” said his father, Mark Dyko. “He has changed so much and accomplished so much in the past few years.”

Nolan Dyko, who is 6-foot-4 and 195 pounds, scored 13 goals as a senior starter. He netted a goal in the state final against Columbus Bishop Watterson, the state semifinal against Bay Village Bay and the regional final against Hunting Valley University School.

“I thought that we earned all the wins we got and the state championship,” Dyko said. “We definitely earned that from all the hard work we put in during the preseason, and then the season. We tried our hardest and gave our best effort, and it all paid off.”

Dyko started for three years on the Minutemen soccer team as a forward and midfielder, and contributed on the Division II state runner-up team as a sophomore.

“Nolan was a key leader and role model for the team this past fall,” said Jakab, Revere’s boys soccer coach. “He scored the game-winning goal in the regional championship and sealed the championship scoring Revere’s second goal in the state final.

“Additionally, he provided many key plays throughout the season to lead the Minutemen to an undefeated 21-0-2 season. His composure, determination and willingness to step forward and lead the team were keys to our successful season. Not only is he successful on the field, he is as determined in the classroom.”

Dyko played baseball at Revere, and was also active at school in several clubs and in the community.

“Nolan walked into tryouts his sophomore season standing 6-foot-3, almost five inches taller than he was as a freshman,” said Cottrell, Revere’s baseball coach. “As I watched him throw off a mound, I knew he was going to make an impact on the varsity level.”

Cottrell said Dyko was Revere’s No. 3 starting pitcher as a sophomore, and then this season as a senior he “blossomed into a true No. 1 pitcher for our program.”

Dyko went 3-1 as a senior with a 1.38 earned run average and 37 strikeouts in 40 innings.

“Besides his on-the-field achievements, Nolan is strong in the classroom as well,” Cottrell said. “He is going to study engineering in college and took a rigorous honors and AP schedule of classes.”

Dyko praised his teachers and coaches for promoting time-management skills. He also appreciates the support he receives from his family, which includes his parents and sister, Alanna, 21, who is a student at Ohio State University after graduating from Revere. Colleen Dyko graduated from St. Vincent-St. Mary and works as a manager of information systems programming at Third Federal Savings Bank in Cleveland. Mark Dyko graduated from West Holmes, and has a bachelor’s and master’s from the University of Akron and a doctorate from Ohio State University. He works as an engineering manager with Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems in Akron (formerly Goodyear Aerospace).

Nolan Dyko, who throws left and bats right, said his favorite class at Revere was Advanced Placement Physics, and that class along with AP Calculus and AP Chemistry have helped him prepare to study mechanical engineering and play club soccer at UC.

“It is going to be a big jump going to college,” Dyko said. “I know I will have a lot more things to do and a lot more responsibilities to take over. Hopefully I can manage it.”
