Nick Walsh


Nick Walsh - MAHOF Class of 2008A self-described "midget" at 5'6", Nick Walsh stood tall as a three sport star at Midview High School in the early 60's. Nick is believed to be the only Midview athlete to captain all three of his teams in a single year. He did so as a senior in 1962-1963.

Nick earned three letters in football, highlighted his senior year when he quarterbacked the Middies to a 20-0 defeat of Huron which hadn't lost a game in three years. Although missing the first two games of the year because of an injury, the senior captain quarterbacked the team to a winning season (6-3) that included a 26-18 win over Amherst and a 36-8 thrashing of arch-rival, North Ridgeville.

Earlier in the year in basketball, he captained the Middies to three wins over archrival North Ridgeville. Two were in the regular season and were their only losses. The third was in tournament play with Nick scoring 17 points to lead the Middies to a 63-61 victory. That Midview team scored 103 points against Wellington, which still stands as a school record. Nick was the assists leader on that team and was an outstanding shooter from long range. He was All-Conference and made the All Tournament Team.

Nick's baseball career was highlighted May 3, 1963 when his exploits became legendary. In a game against Elyria, Nick, batting clean-up crushed a high fastball which the Chronicle Telegram described the next day as "a monster which broke a scoreless deadlock, cleared both left field fences, hit in the middle of the street (Middle Avenue) beyond and bounced off the front of a house on the other side, on one hop". Nick's team finished 2nd in the Lakeland conference under Coach Don Schaly. He led the team in RBI's (21) and batting average (352).

Nick continues to follow all the teams and is a member of the GLW Broadband TV12 crew which covers the football, basketball and volleyball games. He lives in Elyria and is a custodian for Midview Schools. He has a son, Eric and two grandsons and lives in Elyria.

Welcome, Nick Walsh, into the Midview Athletic Hall of Fame
