In light of the passing of BWHS legend Dick Walker, we would like to share a little about him with you. Mr. Walker was the head coach of our 1966 State Championship team in a game with Upper Arlington that was the first-ever state title game televised in Ohio. As head coach at Bishop Watterson, he compiled a 51-11-3 record over seven seasons. Coach Walker went on to a position as an assistant coach on Woody Hayes' staff at Ohio State (1969-76) before joining the Pittsburgh Steelers. Walker was a member of the Steelers' coaching staff during the Super Bowl years of 1978 and 1979 and later coached in the CFL and at other high schools before retiring.
The Columbus Dispatch reported that Coach Walker, 80, succumbed to complications he suffered in a car accident Las Vegas where he resided. More

2010 Div. III Football State Champions
It’s football season in Columbus, Ohio, so when most people mention “The Game” at this time of year, they are often referring to the annual fall football match-up between The Ohio State University Buckeyes and the University of Michigan Wolverines. However, in the realm of high school football, “The Game” stands for the rivalry that has developed over the years between the Bishop Watterson Eagles and the Stallions of St. Francis DeSales. This annual meeting is an intense high school football contest between two of Columbus’s parochial powerhouses where these neighborhood schools, located a mere 2.8 miles apart, battle it out each year on the gridiron.
