Sportsmanship Athletes of the Month

Austin Clay is an excellent leader and young man. He works hard to not only be the best he can be but to bring out the best in everyone on his team. Austin respects the game and his opponents and is a great representative of Titan Football and the SWC. Austin, who will play football at Bowling Green State University, was involved in the H2O Foundation in the Berea City School District which, involved our BMHS Basketball program adopting a family in need during the 2022 holiday season. Austin helped organize the gift lists and spend the morning dropping gifts and interacting with the family in need.


Jocelyn Eldemire
Elyria High School

Jocelyn Eldemire shows the true definition of sportsmanship. Right before her junior season started, she was in an accident that caused injuries that are preventing her from being able to play during our regular season this year. She has handled this difficult situation extremely well, considering the circumstances. It has not stopped her from being a leader for the Pioneers. She is still at practices and matches giving her teammates feedback and being their biggest cheerleader. She also still contributes to team duties such as stat taking.  Jocelyn always has a positive attitude towards all coaches, teammates, officials, and opponents. Jocelyn not only shows her sportsmanship capabilities off the court this season, but she has shown these same qualities when she plays on the court as well. When not focusing on volleyball Jocelyn, a member of the Urban League and Student Union through Early College, volunteers at Second Harvest and Project Ready.
