A dual sport athlete who spends plenty of time on the gridiron and in the pool, Drew Daming's leadership qualities have been felt throughout his athletic career.

"Great kid, he does everything you ask from the minute I was hired he was my contact," said South Spencer football coach Jeff Daming. "I didn't know anybody really and with the COVID-19 situation he was really a guy I talked to about getting cellphone numbers,getting on social media to talk to kids and he just has been a leader from the get go."

"It's been amazing, I've loved having him here and there's really a new environment for the football team and there's a whole new atmosphere," said South Spencer Senior Drew Daming. "It's been a great year, I've loved having him here."

When he's not building a foundation for future Rebels, Daming is hitting the books. A 4.17 grade point average has positioned him at the top of his class.

"He is one of the hardest workers I've ever had," said South Spencer Math Teacher David Hall. "Most of the students in his higher level math classes kind of turn to him for guidance when they aren't as comfortable coming to me. They can always go to Drew and he kind of takes care of them."

The football team captain is also involved in his community, as the Class and Key Club President is involved in 10 different clubs and activities.

"I just really like helping out the school," said Drew Daming. "I feel like I can be a voice for the other students when if they want something to happen. I can try and help make that happen and helping out the community is just something my parents have instilled in me and I've learned through church and I'd like to carry that on."

"Just a great kid and I couldn't be happier for him," said Jeff Daming. "I think he's starting to whittle down where he wants to go to school and he's got a bright future ahead of him."

"He can do anything that he sets his mind to," said Hall. "He's got a great work ethic and nothing's going to hold him back."

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
