Coach Ward at the helm for 10th season

When Jason Ward came on the scene as the Raid-
ers’ Head Coach in 2006, the team was not at the level
the community had come to enjoy. Jason Ward arrived

with a vision for what he wanted the Raiders’ program
to become. Through hard work and complete dedication
to the program, the Raiders have developed into one of

the most respected programs in NE Ohio.
Laurie Surman of Columbia Station, has come to

know Coach Ward through both of her sons’ success

under his direction at CHS. She thought it only right
to have a tribute to Coach Ward upon entering his 10th
season of coaching the Raiders. A “surprise” tribute was

put together with Ward having no knowledge. Alumni
players were called, parents gathered and shirts were
printed: “Columbia - A reWARDing decade.” Flanking

the players on their walk to the stadium for their scrim-
mage against Trinity, were signs of past motivational
sayings of the teams over the decade. Past players, stu-

dents and fans lined the teams’ walk onto the ?eld. A
special surprise was 35 of Wards family and friends who
were also in attendance to show their support of his ef-

forts over the past 10 years. Coach Ward leads the team onto the ?eld surrounded by friends, family, alumni players and fans to pay tribute to his 10th
