      Corrupt files   07/26/2017

      The server files for the forum were lost early in the morning 26,July 2017.   I restored the forum but using a fresh install of the forum software but we lost all of the images stored on the server. The way I see it... no big deal as it gives us a fresh start.   Over the next couple days I will restore the images I have saved for the forum. but I do not have everyone personal image. You can easily restore that yourself. Any pictures shared in a post that were stored here are also gone... again a fresh start of no clutter.    I just wanted to let you know what was going on. This will display until 1, Sept 2017.

  1. SEYMOUR HC opening

    Terry Smith, Shattuck's basketball coach at Alma, is the current basketball coach at Elkhart Central
  2. My understanding is they are discontinuing the current design and releasing a new one in March. It is supposed to be more appealing aesthetically, which was the biggest reason given by schools for not wanting to try it.
  3. 1 High School In Elkhart

    -Elkhart High School will be in the NIC. Not a question. -There will be 4 middle schools. Pierre Moran (smaller, STEAM academy), North Side, West Side, and a new one at the Elkhart Central facility. -9th graders will be at the Elkhart Central facility...there will be separation between the frosh academy and the middle school. -The total enrollment of Elkhart High School will include freshmen numbers. -Grades 10-12 will be at the Elkhart Memorial Facility, which will receive significant building and facility upgrades...will be more like a campus, with several buildings. -Colors, mascot...no clue. Heard several ideas, a lot of them bad, some good. Examples of good (my opinion): combine the colors (red and blue) and be Patriots, be Lions (to represent the Mangy Lion, which will no longer be in play), combine the colors to make purple and be Vikings. This will be an interesting topic to watch play out. -ECS administration building will be moved to Pierre Moran site.
  4. Rivalry Trophies

    Great question...he would look really good in my living room...just saying
  5. Rivalry Trophies

    The Mangy Lion: Elkhart Memorial vs Elkhart Central When Elkhart High School split, the idea of The Mangy Lion was born. Mangy is one of the most recognizable traveling trophies in high school football, as well as the only still-circulating football trophy in Elkhart County. It is a symbol for victory to whichever team comes out of the annual Memorial/Central football game with more points. That school gets to keep Mangy in its hallways for a year, where he then goes up for grabs during that three hour contest every season. Mangy was commissioned by the Elkhart Lion's Club in 1972 and carved by Mr. Jim Holland, who was a longtime Elkhart Community Schools teacher, working at West Side Middle School. Mr. Holland found a large walnut tree in the woods that had been downed by a lightning strike (250 pounds before carving). He thought it the perfect tree out of which to mold a trophy, since, by surviving a brutal storm, it had already demonstrated the strength and perseverance he wanted the trophy to represent. On the base of Mangy is a dedication plaque from The Lion's Club, which reads: This "Old Mangy Lion" The lion, a symbol of strength and honor, is awarded annually to the Elkhart High School football champion to promote the universal spirit of friendly competition. To the winner goes this token of perseverance and victory representative of the teamwork and commitment necessary to realize the goals of dedicated service. The Elkhart Noon Lions Club, "We serve." Sculptor, James A. Holland, 1972
  6. It will be one high school, grades 9-12. The 9th graders will simply be in a different building, a true freshman academy, like Ben Davis...only difference is that building will be much further away from the upper grades, instead of on the same campus. There will be 4 middle schools under this plan: North Side, West Side, Pierre Moran, and a new one at the current Elkhart Central location, the same place where the new 9th grade building will be. Pierre Moran will become a small middle school that will be primarily for kids who have started the STEM track (from Roosevelt Elementary) so they can continue with the same type of learning process. This middle school will not be open enrollment and will have an application process for admission, so to speak. The ECS Administration Offices will also be housed at the current Pierre Moran location. The current Elkhart Memorial location will undergo massive change, too. It will become more of a campus area, with the Career Center, a performing arts center, College and Career focused areas, the building housing "traditional" grades 9-12, etc. The NIC is the only option for the combined high school, plain and simple. As far as mascot and colors go, that is a can of worms nobody has seemed to want to open yet. "There haven't been any discussions about those yet" has been the company line. While, in the grand scheme of things, mascot and color are not as important as most of the other aspects of The Elkhart Promise (what the revised plan is being called), I am sure it will be the topic that brings about the most heated debate.

    Concord and Memorial...
  8. Downey Resigns at St Joe

    There are some really intriguing names on the Who Has Applied list...
  9. Helmet recomendations

    I am curious...did your son sustain a concussion from any of this? I do agree, the chipping is easier on those helmets, but SG has always been awesome about customer service and getting products replaced. For me, it is a more than fair trade: occasional helmet replacement (which can happen for any helmet) for peace of mind about kids' safety.
  10. Helmet recomendations

    It's crazy, isn't it? That is one of the reasons I love them: the lighter weight promotes keeping the head up. Also, the back of the helmet doesn't come as far down on the neck, again promoting the head to be up. They are much lighter than the helmets we used...but offer much better protection.
  11. Helmet recomendations

    If you are going to spend money on your own helmet, get with SG Helmets. They were created by Bill Simpson, the guy who reinvented racing helmets. He decided there had to be a better way to make a helmet that could actually help guard against concussions. You see these racing guys get in crazy wrecks all the time...no concussion. It is definitely worth checking out. The biggest reason it is much safer is because they don't use air or cushions to redistribute the energy from a blow to the helmet. They use NASA developed foam to absorb the energy from a blow to the helmet, so the head doesn't get it. I can't emphasize enough how much better these helmets are. http://www.sghelmets.com

    Davon Long, 2016 WR from Elkhart Memorial: 7 catches, 135 yards, 4 TDs. Just putting him in the discussion. This is also his first year playing football since middle school.
