  1. They are affixed by whomever is contracted to recondition the helmets. New helmets will have the stickers on them from the manufacturer. My guess though is that if some coach wants clear ones, that would have black lettering, or other colors depending on the color of the helmet, the coach would have to arrange that with whomever they send the helmets to for reconditioning. I am not really sure if there are any regulations about the color of the sticker.
  2. I believe that is a program decision, rather than a rule of any kind. Many D1 coaches are not fans of their prospects playing in the game, and will tell them not to, but again, I don't believe there is a rule in place.
  3. Cost and time come to mind first. Just the one current North South game costs about $400 per player. To have 4 games requires a LOT of time. Summers are busy enough for coaches, no one will commit to an entire month away from their own program to do this. As for the Big 33 (top players in Pennsylvania are selected to play in an all star game). Several of the college bound players in Indiana are not allowed to play in the current game because the coaches at the school they are going to will not allow them to participate.
  4. Last school year was the first year for the course. It is a full time position. Coaching position possible as well. Contact Head Coach Jim Rowland at jrowland@eacs.k12.in.us
  5. Purdue did get a solid commit in Lawrence Johnson, DL from Snider. I have seen this kid for 4 years at the Northeast Indiana Skills camp. Great talent, very coachable and a great young man. I was hoping he would go further South, but glad to see a good recruit stay in State.
  6. The original topic was about April and May. Full pads are not allowed in either case you mention, just shoulder pads and helmets are allowed (they are actually only allowed for 12 days in the Summer). A coach would be crazy to even try. IF it happened, the IHSAA relies on its member schools/coaches to self report.
  7. correct...cannot even have pads on during those months.
  8. With the way the Summer rules are set, there are opportunities to get the looks you want to see in full 11 on 11 competition. We have been going to St. Francis for several years now. While there is a 7 on 7 segment, there is also an inside run period and a full 11 on 11. Last year, there were 6 teams. While that may be overkill, it still gives you the full look of a variety of offenses. My issue with 7 on 7 is with the club teams that travel. They are not coached by high school coaches and in a lot of cases (at least what we see in this area) is that there is no coaching experience, AND they are running systems that we do not run. Read progressions are different as well, and "coaches" are "tweaking" techniques, counter to what they are being told in our program. I have a friend who would argue with me about how a certain club here in the area would get kids exposure that the high school could not; traveling to Georgia and Florida, etc. I then asked, how many scholarships are being offered to kids that compete there? How many of the top recruits in the Southern states are even competing in these tournaments? Now, a clear sign that this type of thing is out of control; a college coach calls asking about a kid he had seen on film from these. The high school coach could not remember the player. Turns out, the kid was never eligible to compete on the high school team. The coaches are going to the facilities that are training these kids BEFORE they are going to the high schools, or before they even talk to the high school coaches; and the communication between the facility "trainers" and the high school coaches is non existent. Bottom line is that it is all about the money, and to make matters worse, the paying clients are being told that kids are definitely scholarship players; and when they see no offers come, guess who gets blamed?
  9. There is a full time Spanish opening with possible assistant coaching openings at New Haven HS. Anyone interested, contact Head Coach Jim Rowland, jrowland@eacs.k12.in.us. Principal Anna Murphy, amurphy@eacs.k12.in.us, or AD Andy Wagner, awagner@eacs.k12.in.us.
  10. There was a game a couple years ago here in Indiana where a pitcher threw something like 140 pitches. I don't remember all the details, but the count was ridiculously high. I am not sure how the IHSAA arrived at the number they did, but with the increasing amount of elbow and shoulder problems among pitchers, something had to give.
  11. That is spot on....in fact just in the last month, two people were released after being held for the murder of a teen girl simply because no witnesses were willing to come forward. The two clowns posted a picture on a facebook page of them holding up the middle finger; flaunting the fact that they "got away with it". One of them wearing a t shirt with their picture on it with the saying free them.
  12. Really sad news........have heard from a reliable source that it was a case of mistaken identity.
  13. The IHSAA is a self reporting agency; so the expectation is that schools report themselves. While not 100% certain, my guess is that each team is responsible for their own count. That said, there are instances where another school or team will report something that gets investigated. A friend on facebook had posted that team he coached had to forfeit a JV game they had won 3-1 because the winning team's pitcher went over the count. It is not that difficult to do actually. I kept a scorebook while in college and I would enter the pitch number instead of an "X" or a check mark where you keep track of balls and strikes. I created a line for foul balls under that to keep track of additional pitches. I would start a new count each inning and off to the side, I would put total pitches per inning.
