An outstanding performer in football and baseball,
Dwayne Callaway was a three year starter at quarterback and
defensive back on the Midview football team. He was first team
All-Conference and his team’s MVP his senior year. He passed for
1100 yards and rushed for 550 that same year and was player of the
week, seven times in his career. He led his team to a notable 16-10
victory over North Ridgeville which was 9-0 coming into the game.
It was in baseball, however, where Dwayne left a
formidable mark in Midview’s history. He was a four year starter for
the Middies and the first freshman to make first team
All-conference. He set the career strikeout record for a Midview
pitcher with 304. He struck out 19 of 21 batters in a game against
Elyria Catholic and followed with a 17 strikeout performance against
Oberlin. He pitched 12 games with 16 or more strikeouts and had
three career no hitters. He batted 405 his sophomore year, 383 as a
junior and 427 as a senior.
He was offered a baseball scholarship to Bowling
Green State University where he was a four year starter for the
Falcons. Although hampered by injuries, he made the All-Conference
Team his junior year. He currently holds Bowling Green’s record for
starting appearances, in a single season with 27.
Dwayne continued his baseball interests after
graduation from BGSU. He was the head baseball coach at Muskingum
High School in 1994-95 and Columbia from 1996-98 where he was named
Lorain County Coach of the year. He was the head baseball coach at
Berea High School from 1999 to 2003 where he had two sectional and
district appearances and one regional. Dwayne’s overall coaching
record was 178-84. He won five Coach of the Year awards and was the
Plain Dealer Coach of the Year in 2003. Seventeen of his former
players went on to play at the collegiate level and six went to the
Dwayne Calloway lives in Elyria with his wife,
Angela and daughter Lindsey and sons, Tyler and Cody.
