Stoffer is a three year letter winner in football, basketball, and baseball. He is an all-conference selection, and a two year starter at quarterback. Stoffer broke his leg toward the end of football season, but through determination and hard work, rehabbed in time for baseball. He then helped South Range to a berth in the Division III District title game in baseball.
“Playing team sports, you don’t want to let your teammates down,” continued Stoffer. ”I want to be my best so that I can help out the guys next to me to my left and right.”
He has a 4.0 grade point average, is class valedictorian, and will attend Ohio State.
