Olmsted Falls senior safety Michael Dulin and St. Ignatius senior guard Juan Pen are the Channel 3 "Game Changers" for week 13 of the high school football season.
Dulin, a team captain who holds a 4.0 GPA, has jump-started his future career in the military. He was named regional "Young Marine of the Year" in February, earning trips to Iwo Jima and Guam with World War II veterans.
Dulin is a Sergeant Major in the Young Marines -- the highest rank in the organization. He plans to attend a service academy upon graduating from Olmsted Falls.
Pen, a two-year letterman for Chuck Kyle's Wildcats, is giving back to the less-fortunate with help from his mom, Carolynn -- a teacher at Lincoln West School of Global Studies. The two are running a book drive, with the books being donated to an elementary school in Puerto Rico and Seeds of Literacy in Cleveland.
Books can be dropped off for donation in the St. Ignatius athletic office. The drive ends Monday, Nov. 27.
