Rakes steps away at Fairview

SHERWOOD – After spending the last 27 years involved with Fairview football as a player and a coach, Doug Rakes is stepping away from the gridiron for the first time since before his junior high days.
Rakes, who spent the last eight seasons as headman of the Fairview varsity program, resigned Wednesday.
Along with two years as a junior high player and then as a standout for the great Bob Olwin varsity teams of the late 90s at Fairview, Rakes joined Olwin’s coaching staff after graduating in 1999 and later served on Dave Robinson’s staff.

His resignation will be given to the Central Local Schools Board of Education at next month’s meeting.
