PROCTORVILLE, Ohio (WOUB) — Fairland is a serious contender for the state finals — but that wasn’t the case just a few years ago. The turning point? When the the Dragons hired head coach Melvin Cunningham.

Cunningham reflects on his vision for the program shortly after taking over.

“Our goal was to be a household name,” he said. “And for you to be a household name, you’ve got to be consistent, and we understand that just making it to the playoffs here and there is not being a consistent football program.”

The Dragons’ playoff run continues tonight against No. 3 West Jefferson.
