Loveland Graduate Drew Plitt was at Loveland High School on Wednesday to watch the Womens basketball game and his sister Marie help defeat Turpin.
Cleveland, Ohio – Ball State Sophomore quarterback Drew Plitt came away with the Ray Louthen Award. This award, which honors the memory of the former Ball State head football coach (1962-67) and school’s athletics director (1970-81), is bestowed upon the team’s most improved player(s).
Plitt was thrust into the team’s starting quarterback role in late October after an injury sidelined Riley Neal for the rest of the season. Plitt, a native of Loveland, Ohio, threw for a career-high 340 yards and a touchdown at Toledo on Oct. 31. He then led the Cardinals to an exciting 42-41 overtime win over Western Michigan on Nov. 13. Plitt was named MAC West Offensive Player of the Week after that win thanks to tossing three touchdown passes and completing 80.8 percent (21-of-26) of his pass attempts versus WMU.
