Posted on: May 15, 2023

The Milford High School Department of Athletics is pleased to announce that eight additional members of its Class of 2023 will continue their athletic careers on the collegiate level. The student-athletes that have committed to continuing their academic and athletic futures are: Scott Arnold (Football-Wittenberg University), Avery Eversole (Stunt Team-University of Kentucky), Cassidy Fisher (Dance-University of Cincinnati), Jimmy Flottemesch (Baseball-University of Cincinnati Clermont College), Austin Hardin (Football-Otterbein University), Miah O’Toole (Women’s Basketball-Belmont Abbey College), Nick Scally (Football-Marietta College) and Ava Snider (Cheerleading-University of Cincinnati).

Arnold was the anchor of the offensive line his senior year that helped Milford rank among the top-three in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference in scoring, total offense and passing offense. For his efforts, he earned second team All-ECC honors last fall.

At Wittenberg, an NCAA Division III program in Springfield, OH, Arnold will play for head coach Jim Collins. Scott is the son of Richard Arnold and Glenda Cornelius.

Eversole has been a two-year member of the varsity cheer squad at Milford, helping the Eagles to ECC Championships each season, along with Ohio State Championships and a UCA Performance National title in 2022. Eversole and her teammates finished fourth on the national level as well this year.

At Kentucky, an NCAA Division I program in Lexington, KY, Eversole will compete for head coach Blair Bergmann. Avery is the daughter of John and Stephanie Eversole.

Fisher was a four-year member of the varsity dance squad at Milford. During her career, she helped the Eagles to three straight ECC titles.

At Cincinnati, an NCAA Division I program in Cincinnati, Fisher will compete for head coach Kacey Willis. Cassidy is the daughter of Brian Fisher and Renee Moore.

Flottemesch is in his first year as a varsity player for Milford and has contributed out of the Eagles’ bullpen this spring. In four games, he has picked up one win, hurling 7 2/3 innings with seven strikeouts and just two walks allowed.

At UC Clermont, a USCAA Division II program in Batavia, Flottemesch will play for head coach Keith Bauman. Jimmy is the son of Jim, Jr. and Susan Flottemesch.

Hardin rewrote the Milford record book last fall for passing, setting new marks for single season touchdown passes (40), yards (2,979), completions (210) and completion percentage (68.2%). He also set new school career marks for TD passes (64), yards (5,713), completions (431) and completion percentage (61.2%). For his excellent play, Hardin earned first team All-ECC and all-district, third team All-Ohio and a first team Cincinnati Enquirer All-Star.

At Otterbein, an NCAA Division III program in Westerville, Ohio, Hardin will play for head coach Tommy Zagorski. Austin is the son of Kevin and Jen Hardin.

O’Toole closed out one of the top careers of any Milford girls player in history by becoming the first player in nearly three decades to earn All-Ohio honors. She also picked up her second straight All-ECC first team award and was an all-district selection. This year, she led the Eagles in scoring and ranked fourth in the league at 13.7 points per game. A dangerous outside shooter and slasher to the rim, O’Toole made school history this season by draining a league-best 67 three-pointers, the most in a single season ever by an Eagle. She closes her career with not only the single-season three-pointer record, but also a share of the single-game mark (7). In addition, she ranks fifth in career points (842) and second in career three-pointers (131).

At Belmont Abbey, an NCAA Division II program in Belmont, NC, O’Toole will play for head coach Kim Lusk. Miah is the daughter of Jerry and DeAnn O’Toole.

Scally had an outstanding senior season, capped by earning first team All-ECC, second team all-district and first team Cincinnati Enquirer All-Star. A force at middle linebacker, he amassed 73 tackles to rank third on the team and 15th in the ECC despite missing one game. Scally added six tackles for loss, including 3.5 sacks, with one interception and one pass break-up. He also enjoyed an accomplished wrestling career during his time at Milford.

At Marietta, an NCAA Division III program in Marietta, Ohio, Scally will play for head coach Andy Waddle. Nick is the son of Anthony and Katie Scally.

Snider was a three-year varsity cheerleader during her Milford career. She helped Milford amass three ECC Championships, a UCA Performance National Championship and three State Championships throughout her high school career.

At Cincinnati, an NCAA Division I program in Cincinnati, Snider will compete for head coach Tabby Fagan. Ava is the daughter of Mark and Dina Snider.

This group joins 21 other Class of 2023 members who announced college commitments earlier this school year.
