APB, Where are they now?
Information concerning our last All Points Bulletin came from all directions. In searching for former Ringgold High and Waynesburg U. football standout Robert Heller, the Varsity Letters learned that Heller is either a) preparing to play football at Slipper Rock, b) preparing to play football at Marietta, c) at Marietta but abandoning football for boxing or d) not much of anything.
Thanks for all the feedback. Hopefully, Heller surfaces soon.
This week, we're issuing another All Points Bulletin for a former Observer-Reporter Athlete of the Year. This one is for former Canon-McMillan standout Ashley Young.
Young's senior year (2004-05) was one to remember. Nicknamed "Cheetah", she won the WPIAL Class AAA long jump as a senior and also set the event record at the Washington-Greene County Coaches Track Meet. She was also a four-year letterwinner in soccer.
Young, shown in this 2005 photo with former C-M track standout Adam Penn, attended Edinboro University. Tragedy struck during her junior year when her sister Aaleigha Young died at the age of 13 after collapsing during gym class at Canonsburg Middle School.
Anyone knowing Young's whereabouts is urged to contact the Varsity Letters.
