    Guys, can you please keep this going for the rest of the day? Also, is it ok to post pics of Michael Jackson since he ended up being white at the end of his life?

    This a public service endorsement for the importance of getting an EKG for your child. The opportunity was recently provided to Bremen High School through the "Play for Jake" Foundation. (http://playforjake.org/) Jake was a student at La Porte and passed away suddenly during football practice on September 25, 2013 from an undetected heart condition, Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (ARVD). ARVD is a disease that attacks the heart and cannot be diagnosed without proper screening and/or testing. Jake was a strong and healthy high school junior who participated in both the football and lacrosse programs and never showed any signs or symptoms of having a heart condition. This is why it is so important that we spread this awareness to help save precious lives. I encourage everyone to have your son/daughter tested. My son, who is also a junior, is a very active football and baseball player. Growing up, we always thought he had childhood asthma because when he got worked up, especially in the heat of summer travel ball, football workouts and even travel basketball, he'd sweat a ton, face turning red, couldn't breathe, etc... Simply diagnosed at the time as Asthma. He was given an inhaler and that seemed to be the fix. A couple months ago, the Play for Jake (P4J) Foundation came to Bremen and tested all. As a result of the testing, a blip was picked up on the EKG for my son. Long story short, he was diagnosed with WPW syndrome (Woolff Parkinson White Syndrome.) I'm not a doctor so I won't explain it all but basically the electrical system of his heart would short-circuit on occasion because of an extra blood vessel he was born with would allow the blood flow to the heart work against itself. Yesterday, he had a successful heart ablation to fix the situation in South Bend and after a short week, he'll be able to resume normal activity. Had it not been for P4J, we might not have ever known. As a parent, definitely relieved to know and very thankful for Jake's parents for starting the foundation to have high school kids tested. I'm not sure if EKG's are part of a normal HS sports physical but definitely should be checked. I encourage everyone to visit the Play for Jake website and have your child checked. Definitely could be a lifesaver! Again, HUGE thanks to the Jake's family for starting their foundations so it doesn't happen to anyone else.

    So. If, I read this correctly. The coach tackled the player who scored on the coach's son. He then hit him in the head and used bad language toward the player. The coach was suspended for 2 weeks. He was able to come back and coach the players. WOW! There is no way you would be able to keep your job in the workforce doing that to a customer. Besides, the idea of a lawsuit. He also is the head of the pastoral ministry. We as coaches have a code that we ask our players, parents and even fans. We MUST maintain the HIGHER GROUND. I am sorry. We do have to be the role models for our players. We need to be men of INTEGRITY!

    When your team is having success under center running option and then switch out to a 2x2 set that clearly isn’t the teams bread and butter that’s coaching. When you see a team in a terrible defensive set for the opponent they are facing that’s coaching. When you hear kids getting screamed at and belittled on the sideline when things aren’t going your way that is coaching. None of those things are caused by community, parents, etc.

    Few weeks back I had an idea. Started a spreadsheet that shows the win-loss, win percentage, combined percentage, and total wins for every team that plays football and basketball. Thought others might enjoy it. Football Basketball Records.xlsx

    This would be the first thing I would ever look for in a teacher's background. Touching a child in the course of your employment is never acceptable.

    Jason Simmons will be highly effective at a school who, to be frank, needs his discipline. Will he win football games? I believe he will.. Will he produce quality young people who better their family trees and make generational changes? Undoubtedly. I would want my son to play for him and would be honored to coach on his staff. Mark my words, years from now people will reflect that Ben Davis was lucky to make such a quality hire.

    Great news about your son! The Play for Jake organization has made an amazing impact already and hopefully their reach can keep growing. If you're ever at Kiwanis Field in LaPorte and you wonder why the home field 26 yard line hash marks are orange. That's for #26 - Jake West.

    Been involved quite a bit over the years here in this state, but I would venture to say that this upcoming SR class may be one of, if not the best collection of HS Football Talent that this state has seen, at least in my 15 years in coaching.

    Don't post often. Haven't in 13 years but I just thought I'd stand by a friend. I have no knowledge of the EC situation I was just defending 7979's credentials.
  23. 3 points
    Agreed, never doubted 7979 credentials, just thought his need to tell everyone how great a coach he is is a little off putting to say the least. Still don't see how any of that gives him the authority to speak on something he has no clue about except for what he's heard around the water cooler. 7979 what about your boy? I get a clinic invite but no more love, that's cold.

    #fakenews again......your last post was 38 min ago..... No-one...I repeat...no-one takes a 38 min nap!! Come on...with 35 years coaching and all those acolades, best offensive line coach Indiana has ever had...you were out back, Z to the knee working on footwork.

    Ha love it....Now we got "Hank".......1 post and now he is defending his buddy..... Let me tell you something....If STC had all the credentials 7979 has or accomplishments he thinks he has....I would be under my real name so STC could give him some street cred...but he is not. So until then, #fakenews. Now I must go get this oil change done in the shop....but I am telling you...7979 - Not all cracked up to be who he thinks he is.

    7979......This is not college. The Administration just cant hand out money to coaches & teachers. There is this thing called a "contract".....Even STC knows that and I am already 3 deep..... Lysander....... Come on down...STC will meet you! My advice.....park at the school (in the back parking lot) walk through the tunnel under US 50...and boom, right there across the street from the gas station......Let me be honest Lysander......you need to be at least 10 deep before entering that place. Thursday Night is usually okay....They bring in some Natti chicks on Thursday for the STC Crew and the Coaches Show.

    Muda is on the money here. When there is real money on the line, then it is time to get every call right. Missed calls are part of the game. Let the kids play and we can teach them the lesson that is associated with something not going their way once in a while!

    Clearly my beleaguered, non paying of debts Tigers fan, Coach G, is alluding to is that many around these parts want to claim P/P/Catholic schools get all the great transfers, recruiting etc, where this is one of many examples of public to public school transfers. I believe the term is being facetious assuming folks read the article, classic family move, wishing young man great final years, watched him on film a few times and love his running style!!

    I know it has been awhile, but Coach White does have a blue ring from his days at Griffith. Is the problem questionable coaching or something else?

    Like i’ve never been there. 99% of high school QBs are mechanically awful. I was trained classically as a QB by a great coach. Many years ago, but the fundamentals haven’t changed. Lead foot pointed at the target, stand tall, drive with the back foot, elbow up, press the ball into your throwing hand, when moving be sure to square your shoulders to the target, no false steps ... It’s still the same. I might see one QB a year who does it right.

    Sounds good to me. The Ridge was ranked lower than that last year and we took out your 9,4,3 and #1 on the way to collecting that giant wooden plaque.

    Congrats to Coach Simmons. Simmons has some strong ties to BD. Former assistant there, former assistant AD, understands all that comes with working at BD. Has head coaching experience, has school admin experience, and leadership experience in the state coaching association. Checks a lot of boxes.

    He is one of top in my opinion (can't think of anyone that is better and many others feel the same way). His credentials are true and yes both his sons are excellent football players.

    I have coached against, with and listen to 7979 and he is the best oline coach in the state. There is no fake news when I say that.

    Leroy Marsh is one of the finest men I have met in 40 years of officiating. I am very proud to call him a good friend. Fair winds, Coach.

    Man you just disregard any opinion formed by what another reads and interprets as inherently wrong and unacceptable. Also making long and somewhat incoherent posts does not help sell your point. As of now you seem to be more of the dissenting opinion not the primary one.

    It was announced today that Matt Edwards from the Big Ten was hired by the NFL officiating staff. Matt is originally from Michigan, but had some of his early high school and college officiating experience in Indiana, and he now lives in Fishers. Last year Steve Woods (Franklin) and Brian Bolinger (Leo) were hired by the NFL. Both worked HS football in Indiana earlier in their careers. That is an amazing representation from one state. It builds on the 3 active and 1 retired official that live in Central Indiana: Dana McKenzie, Greg Bradley, Bryan Neale, and Mark Baltz (retired). All but Dana worked high school football in Indiana before ascending through the collegiate ranks. You never know when that official you are berating on the field on Friday night (or Monday night for that matter) may one day be officiating in the NFL. Please applaud these members of our officiating fraternity for achieving the pinnacle of our career. In addition to these fine men, Indiana is also home to 17 Division I football officials. Most of them are still actively involved with the IFOA and help give back to their local associations. Not bad for a basketball official!

    I’m happy for Coach Renbarger and the whole community but I just don’t agree with homeschool kids being allowed to play. At Tipton(guessing most schools) if you are not at school the day of a game by 10 am you’re not allowed to play in the game. Oak Hill has 3 kids that attend 1 class(P.E) and then play in their games. If you aren’t going to that school full time then you shouldn’t be playing on their basketball team. Just my two cents.

    They are still here....I think most folks (and I use "most" very loosely)... can somewhat agree that classifying high schools for competitive balance based on enrollment alone is just silly. The debate is still pretty strong each year on the best way to address it. Personally, I think all P&Ps should have to go to Canada to play football.
