COSHOCTON - For more than 40 years, the Elks Hoop
Shoot has been an annual event in Coshocton. This
year’s competition was held on Sunday, Nov. 24 at Co-
shocton High School.
Paul Bowman said he competed in the event when he
was a kid and hopes that more kids will try the compe-
tition. “There used to be 70-80 kids competing – the last
few years, we’ve had 10-12. A few years ago, the national
champion was from Coshocton.”
Bowman said he understands kids are involved in
many activities. “This is free and teaches responsibility.
And it’s something kids can do at home or with a group
of friends. Hopefully, some of the kids here today will do
well at the regionals and will keep advancing.” Bowman
said he wants to thank the people who volunteer with
the hoop shoot every year.
“The Elks are always giving back to this community.
Some of these guys are the same ones who have been
volunteering for 30 years.”
Taylor McCormick competed for the first time this
year. She entered because she thought it would be fun.
McCormick said she shoots hoops at home and at school
and likes it. She made five baskets and said she was
nervous when she was shooting. McCormick will be
advancing to regionals in January and thinks that it’s
William L. Knapp had worked for the railroad for
46 years and would soon be retiring. He first started
working on the railroad in 1924 as a fireman for the
Pennsylvania Railroad Co., and in 1941 was promot-
ed to engineer. For 13 years, he served as chairman
of the local Division 416 Brotherhood of Locomotive

According to Knapp, he was moving to Arizona fol-

motel venture. William was married to his wife Mary
and together they had 10 children, one of whom lost
his life in Vietnam.
