start doing team tackle and team takeaway. Roth was asked to describe team takeaway. Roth
said it was working on getting turnovers (tip drill and strip drill). Roth described the strip drill to
be nothing more than a player holding the ball and a defender wrapping him up with a second

tackling drills as having a ball carrier and a defender and they would walk at an angle for pursuit
tackling. Roth described another tackling drill where they would stand about five yards. apart

stated no. Roth said came over and was standing next to him. Roth asked if he
was alright and said he was sick. Roth knew was sick the day before because he
was not at school. then lied down and Roth told him he might get in trouble.

was alright. Roth heard say his head and neck hurt. told him to
take off his helmet and his pads. Roth said Mason Beachler took inside. They told him
to go into the trainer's room and put a cold towel on his head. Roth said Mason was the only one

Interview with Evan Ulinski
Ulinski was asked to run SA Collins through the events on Tuesday, September 1 0, 2013.
Ulinski said he was not going to be able to give SA Collins the exact order of events but did
know they started off with NOOSE. SA Collins asked him to describe what happened on that
day the best he could. Ulinski said they were doing team offense and the coaches were not happy
with their level of intensity. He said they were not in full pads that day. had them
go inside the locker room and put on full pads. He said the kids who were on time were the ones
who hit in the third drill that SA Collins had previously written down with the exception of there
not being a pad used. When SA Collins asked him to describe the distance, Ulinski said he just
knows it was five yards from the lines on the field. Ulinski was asked about there being lines on
the practice field and he claimed there were lines on the field that day.
Ulinski said he was one of the late ones. Ulinski was asked what instructions he was given once
he came out of the locker room. He said he was told to get on the line. Ulinski said because he
was late, the players who were on time were going to hit him or tackle him. Ulinski said he was
not told anything else. He further stated he was really late so he did not hear what they were
supposed to be doing other than getting hit. Ulinski said he just stood there and got hit like any
other time. Ulinski was asked ifhe had been told he had done it incorrectly and he stated no.
Ulinski said he could not remember who tackled him. Ulinski was asked if it was a hard hit
since he cannot remember and he said no, he just cannot remember. Ulinski was asked if there
were any hits during practice that stand out in his mind and he stated no. Ulinski was asked if he
had seen take any hits and he said no. Ulinski said he saw lying on the ground
later in practice. Ulinski said they were at a water break when he saw him lying down. Ulinski
did not hear say anything or anything being said to him. Ulinski said one of the coaches
was attending to him but Ulinski went back to practicing. Ulinski said he did not see
after practice either. Ulinski was asked if he had seen prior to practice or in school that
day and he said yes, in school. Ulinski said when he saw him in the hallway during school he
seemed fine to him.
Ulinski was asked was guarding him while Ulinski was on Team Offense and he stated
no. Ulinski was asked if he saw anyone else at practice who appeared to be sick or injured and
he said he did not think so.
Later, after the interview with Ulinski, SA Collins reviewed what Ulinski had stated to him
versus what Ulinski had stated to Principle Kieper. There was one significant difference as it
pertained to the distance the kids were at during New Woodmore/Old Woodmore. In Kieper's
notes it indicates Ulinski said they were ten yards apart, while during the interview with SA
Collins, Ulinski was confident it was five yards due to there being lines on the field (which was
also the first time SA Collins had heard there were lines on the field and no other player
indicated this to SA Collins).

SUMMARY:
On September 30, 2013, S/A Momchilov spoke with Woodmore High School football player
Evan Sandwisch. The interview was conducted at Woodmore High School located at 633
Fremont Street, Elmore, Ohio.
DETAILS:
On September 30, 2013, S/A Momchilov spoke with Woodmore High School football player
Evan Sandwisch. Sandwisch stated he was at practice on September 10, 2013 and practice started
at 1515 hours and lasted until 1830 hours.
Sandwisch stated that the team had a water break after every drill. Typical football practice drills
consist of practicing catching, releases, and pat and go. Typical tackling drills consist of form
tackling drills called bowling balls. There are two types of bowling ball drills, one onto a pad and
the other where a pad is not present. When bowling ball is conducted without a pad the tackler
only lifts the other player up and does not take them to the ground. The bowling ball drill onto
the pad is run at full speed and the tackler is approximately six or seven yards away from the
player that is being tackled. The person being tackled keeps their arms to the side and is
defenseless.
On September 1 0, 2013, Sandwisch stated that the team was dressed in three quarter pads which
consisted of a helmet, shoulder pads, and a girdle. Drills performed during practice consisted of
"the bull in the ring drill" and a lot of team drills which consisted of scout team versus first team.
Sandwisch stated during practice the team was not going hard enough and the team was
instructed to go and get changed into full pads. The team was allowed eight minutes to get
changed. When the players returned to practice after getting changed, the players were placed
into two groups "old" Woodmore and "new" Woodmore. "Old" Woodmore was lined up against
"new" Woodmore. "New" Woodmore was allowed to tackle "old" Woodmore who were

Bringman explained that typical practice drills consist of wide receiver drills. In regard to
tackling drills, typical drills are fit tackling, shed drills, shuffle drills, and bowling balls.
Bringman described the bowling ball drill as one player standing and the other player is on one
knee. When the coach blows the whistle, the player on one knee tackles the player who is
standing. The drill is not run at full speed.
There is also a variation of the bowling ball drill in which one player is standing in front of a pad
and the other player is approximately four or five yards away. The player that is four or five
yards away will tackle the player who is standing in front of the pad. Bringman stated this drill is
performed at half to three quarters speed.

and maybe a girdle underneath their shorts. All the normal drills were being conducted. During
practice the team was being lazy and instructed the team to go put their full gear
on. allowed the team eight minutes to go and get dressed.

field, and when he arrived the players who were late were separated from the on time players.
Wolford stated the players who were late were called "old Woodmore" and the players that

consisted of approximately fifteen players, and "old Woodmore" was the rest of the team, which
was about thirty players.
Wolford stated that separated the players into two groups, and told the players
to line up. Wolford said that pushed a "new Woodmore" player toward him
and said "hit 'em." Wolford said that his hands were at his sides, and that he never received any
instructions on how to stand in the "old Woodmore" line. Wolford stated that after they were hit
one time, the "old Woodmore" players ran to the cornfield. Wolford said that there did not
appear to be any excessive tackling, aside from two players that were going at it, tackling each
other multiple times.
Wolford said next the team did the "bull in the ring drill." Wolford played the defensive player
who tried to get the ball carrier. Wolford stated that he was up against Tony Rozzi, and that
Rozzi knocked his helmet off. Wolford stated that play was stopped during the drill, and he was
allowed to put his helmet back on. Wolford said that when his helmet came off a second time,
the drill was ended. Wolford said that he was not injured, and the climate of the drill was not
abnormal from any other practice.
SA Emahiser asked Wolford if anyone took any serious hits, and he advised that nothing stood
out to him. Wolford said that he never observed taking any serious hits.
Wolford said that he saw throughout practice talking and he seemed normal. Wolford
said he never saw lying on the ground or become injured in any way. SA Emahiser
asked Wolford ifhe believed that the tackling for practice on September 10 was out ofhand and
he advised that it was a little out of hand because ofhow hard everyone was hitting. SA
Emahiser asked Wolford if he believed any coaches would intentionally cause any harm to the
players and he did not believe that they would.
The interview was then concluded. A digital audio file of this interview has been placed into the
case file as Exhibit #1.

DETAILS:
On October 1, 2013, SA Ryan Emahiser met with John Morris, senior at Woodmore High School
and member of the Woodmore High School football team. SA Emahiser spoke with Morris at
Penta Career Center. The interview was in regard to the allegations occurring at football practice
on September 1 0, 2013. Morris was asked the same battery of questions that were asked to all
other football players. Morris' mother Jennifer Anderson-Morris was present for the interview.
Morris stated that he was present for practice on September 1 0 and that practice was from around
3:15 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Morris said that day was very hot and players were given regular water

back out to the practice field within the eight minutes.
Morris said told the players who came out from changing on time to get in a
line and the players arriving late to form a separate line. Morris said that there were
approximately six players that were on time, and the remainder of the team was late. Morris

late players, and he advised that tapped him on the shoulder and told him "hit
'em." Morris said the tackling was a wrap up tackle that followed through to the ground.
Following the tackle, the tacklees would run to the cornfield. Morris said that he first tackled
Ben Wilt, a freshman, and tackled a total of about five other players. Morris said that they had
never done the drill in this manner. Usually the drill was done in a circuit, with fewer players and
the players were tackled into a pad. Morris said the tackling portion was the exact same format
used in the tackling drill during circuit training.
Morris stated that while the late players were only tackled once, the on time players went down
the line and continued to make multiple tackles. Morris said that all of the late players were
tackled to their backs in a wrap up tackle, except for some of the bigger players. Morris advised
that the drill began with players standing about five yards apart and eventually increased to about
ten yards. Morris said that he did not recall any serious hits sustained by any players that could
have caused an injury. Morris stated t h   ~ there were some players that put their hands behind
their backs, some players had their hands at their sides, and other players took a defensive stance.
Morris said at no time was anyone ever instructed to put their hands behind their backs, and the
players that did put their hands behind their backs most likely did it out of confusion.
Morris said that the only players who were excessive in the tackling were Tony Rozzi and Dustin
Haar, who were not present for the directions of the drill. Morris stated at one point, Rozzi and
Haar were separated by the coaches because their tackling was so excessive. Morris said that
after the tackling drill, they did the "bull in the ring drill," and he did not recall any hits that
stood out to him as being excessive or having caused an injury.
Morris said that after the two drills, they did team offense and team defense. Morris stated he
heard someone yell that was lying on the ground. SA Emahiser asked Morris if
he ever saw take any hard hits and he advised that he did not. Morris said that
was lying on the ground behind some players and , who was running the offense.
Morris said that he did not see until the end of practice when he walked by the trainer's
room. Morris stated that he went into the trainer's room to see and he was lying on the
table and he looked dehydrated. Morris said that the trainer was not in the room at the time, and
he may have been trying to call parents or talking to the coaches about Morris
said that had a towel over his face and did not say anything to him. Morris advised that
he did not have any other interactions with the rest of the evening.
The interview was then concluded. A digital audio file of this interview has been placed into the
case file as Exhibit # 1.

players that did not make it back in the time allotted were referred to as "old Woodmore." Tyler
stated that the "old Woodmore" players were instructed to line up on one line while the "new
Woodmore" players were told to line up on a line across from the "old Woodmore" players. The
distance between the "old" and "new" Woodmore players was estimated to be 15 feet or 5 yards.
The "old" Woodmore players were told that they had to take a full hit and could not protect
themselves. They were tackled multiple times by the "new Woodmore" players and then told to
"run to the com." Running to the com required the players to run to the edge of an adjoining
cornfield and back.
Tyler stated that after the "old Woodmore" players ran to the com he saw

doctor.
Tyler later went to visit at St. Charles Hospital. Tyler thought he heard something about
having paralysis. was then transported to another hospital.

conducting practice on September 10, and was unhappy with the effort being shown by the
players earlier in practice that day. Kieper said that sent the players back into the locker
room to change into full pads, and had advised the players that they only had eight minutes to
change and be back on the practice field. Kieper said from what he learned, some of the kids
arrived later than eight minutes back out to the practice field. Kieper said that
took over a drill when the players arrived back out to the practice field, and that
admitted to him that he called the players that made it out in eight minutes the "new Woodmore,"
and the players that were later than eight minutes were referred to as "old Woodmore." Kieper
said that based on his investigation, he estimates that approximately six to eight players made it
out on time, while approximately 24 to 25 players did not make it out on time.
Kieper advised that out of all of the players that he interviewed only three to four of the players
said that they were told to stand on the line and put their hands behind their back, as was alleged.
Kieper said that the remaining players said that they were told to keep their hands at their sides.
Kieper said at that point, the "new Woodmore" kids would tackle the "old Woodmore," and after
the "old Woodmore" players were tackled they would run to the edge of the cornfield in the
practice field. Kieper said that there were players he interviewed that said they were so late
getting out that they never heard the directions for the drill, and told him that there was no way
they were keeping their hands behind their back because they were being tackled. Kieper also
added those players who said they never heard the directions, said they did not get in trouble for
not having their hands behind their backs. Kieper also said that there were some players that
came out so late that the drill was over by the time they arrived to the practice field. Kieper
estimated that the drill only lasted for a couple minutes.
SA Emahiser asked Principal Kieper about the injuries that received. Kieper
said after his investigation he believed that did not show any signs of being hurt or ill
until near the end of practice around 6:20p.m. Kieper stated that during the initial drill ran by
Mason Beachler said that he was standing next to when he was
tackled, and he appeared fine afterwards running to the edge of the cornfield with the rest of the
players. Kieper said that he learned that was playing scout defense and the coaches saw
make a good play and tackle another player. Kieper said that Zach Sandwich saw
vomit while on the practice field around 6:15 p.m. Kieper said that around the same time
frame walked off of the field and sat down, and saw sitting on the
ground. Kieper said that Zach Sandwich was talking to and that said he was
dizzy and light-headed so Zach took his helmet off. asked him ifhe was okay and
asked him if he could get up. Kieper said at that time had Zack Sandwich and

gets worse to take him to the hospital. Kieper stated that left with some ice and

condition had worsened. Kieper said that then called parents again and told them
that they needed to take him to the emergency room and get him checked out. Kieper said that
even helped into his brother's car, and took home.
Kieper advised that initial call to mother was at 6:32p.m. and the second call
advising her to take him to the emergency room was at 6:49 p.m. Kieper said that
went to the residence to check on after learning that his condition had
deteriorated after he had seen him last.
Kieper said that the superintendent made the decision to place on
suspension pending a full investigation into the allegations. Kieper advised that due to BCI
conducting an investigation into the allegations, he would not be continuing any further internal
investigation until BCI's investigation is complete. SA Emahiser also spoke briefly with
Superintendent Linda Ruiz-Bringman who advised that,
she has remained out of the investigation thus far conducted by Principal Kieper.

BCI for any further assistance. SA Emahiser advised Superintendent Bringman that agents
