Tim was from Martins Ferry and his brother was an outstanding back there. He did play at St. Clairsville in the years you listed which were the football seasons of his 8th and 9th grade years.
When we played at St.C. back then from 72 until 80, only the fist team in each region made the playoffs. We were 26-4 in his days and got close but no cigar. Art Schlichter went 20-0 at Miami Trace and didn't get in eiather.
