    As we begin another high school football journey, I wanted to take a moment and pay a bit of respect to the founder of the GID and still the never-forgotten heart and soul of the page, Tim Adams. Hard to believe it's been over eight years since his unexpected passing. We still miss you TA. Watch over these players from above. Your spirit lives on.

    I am 1 of a few, I just have a good gig where I am in a computer lab 8 hours a day working so it has been my pleasure to just do a small part to keep the ship a float. @DK_Barons still takes care of the operational portion of the site and I bombard him with tech texts all the time!! @77Jimmie checking with his years of guidance is appreciated. My guys @Irishman also does a lot in our world with @SR1 taking the lead in the southern Indiana world. @WCGrad92 helps me with job openings and is our GID Poll Wizard!! But at the end of the day, its not about those folks or me, but of course our community!! We have had more coaches and referees sign up in last few years than I ever remember. I absolutely LOVE the Officiating Forum for our readers and COACHES alike. What a great spot to freshen up on the new rules and the funky scenarios. I thank @bobref, @BisonUmpire and @Impartial_Observer plus a host of others for their wiliness to post. Of Course best wishes to @Mrs Gridiron Digest she checks in here and there and is very generous each year with her donation in memory of Coach Tim Adams.

    I think that works for your 6A and 5A teams but how could 1A and 2A schools do this? I'm sure most of their athletes are doing baseball and track during the spring season.

    When I first moved to this area in 1998, TA was one of the first people I met. We became friends and one of my early stories when I worked for the local newspaper was about how TA put together the early GID. Later, we became very close friends and broadcast partners. I've never met anyone who could take football and simplify it for the average fan like he could on the air, while being conversational and relational. We had a lot of fun every Friday night. TA was passionate about his faith - he was a Christian Church minister and drove an hour one way multiple times a week to teach at his church near Connersville. He was very passionate about his family - we never had a conversation where he didn't talk about his three daughters and how proud he was of them. And he loved football - not just his players at Mt. Vernon (and before that, Eastern Hancock), but the entire football community. He was a great friend and I often miss him, but especially this time of year. I think a lot about what he'd be doing right now, but it would probably involve updating the GID and doing everything he could to promote football at every level. Thankful for the community he put together - many of us have become friends beyond the computer screen - but also thankful for the friendship we had.

    I do what I do for our community in Tim's Honor. Thank you to all of our community for making this what it is. A great place for us to discuss High School Football in the State of Indiana!

    If you know all the answers, then why ask? You and BB should give Grover some credit. He is orders of magnitude closer to having actual insight of this program than either of you. Not saying that to sound jerkish....just a fact. Sorry....the you can count on it comment made me think of this movie classic quote......

    That was nothing more than a witch hunt by a couple dads who weren't happy about junior's playing time. Why would that change anything with our 'camp'?

    Why not use the same concept for summer that you want to apply to spring ball. Just say Football can pick two weeks on in the summer the rest is dead.
  23. 3 points
    I still agree with mo about giving the summers back to the kids. It is also too much responsibility on assistant coaches. Spring ball may not be the answer maybe a week in june after school is out .

    I just want to set this straight. On the Linton-Stockton Miners page of the 2018 Indiana Football Digest the first paragraph reads "There are few communities that embrace their Friday night football better than the southwest Indiana towns of Linton and Stockton." Now c'mon. There is not now, nor was their ever a town named Stockton, at least not near Linton. Linton is a small city. It is located in the Indiana township of Stockton. Stockton Township is located in the western part of Greene county. The township does not reach very far beyond the city limits of Linton. It is true that the community of Linton embraces it's Friday night football. we're sorta proud of that. I don't want to share that attribute with some mythical town called Stockton.

    Allowing a couple seniors to play a JV schedule at the possible expense of taking away a football program seems more than practical to me. The only casualties in your scenario are the few seniors + underclassmen who have zero control over the situation. I would be in favor of waiver that would allow seniors to voluntarily play at a neighboring school in a scenario where they were limited to a JV schedule but shutting down a program due to low numbers in a couple of consecutive classes would kill any chance of the program ever starting back up.

    That was a great game by 2 great teams. East would've easily rolled New Prairie as we did. It was a pleasure watching both teams. Highest regard for the high consistent high level of play from the East program. My kid was the senior RB for New Pal on that team, only time I've seen him smile coming off the field of any game ever. Lol. I think there's a realistic shot of a title game matchup this year. Good luck to East this year, here's hoping we meet at Lucas Oil!!

    I thought the idea was to get the best teams into LOS on Thanksgiving weekend, regardless of where they are from. I’m perplexed.

    Or....much of what was considered normal in the past, has become considered "toxic" in today's "more evolved softer and sensitive" world. Just finished lunch at work....gotta get to my "group hug" session, followed by the "everyone get's an award" event. Your "logic" DT is interesting...at best.

    trust me we have plenty of time away from our team in the summer Not sure what I am missing here This idea being discussed would put Indiana football backwards in my opinion. The conversation should start with Basketball, Soccer, Baseball and start restricting the amount of competition and practices THEY allow. Which if you are scoring at home: UNLIMITED for those sports

    That's a myth. Besides, have to think outside the box if you expect to win The Caddy. Ask Chatard about homefield advantage. 13 State Championships and they've never played a home game. Until this Friday night. What an atmospere that will be.

    They didn't have to adjust anything. The school system will have new policies that apply to all coaches but Coach Moore doesn't need to change because he does things the right way. Are your daytime soaps not providing you enough drama?

    Yeah im not sure. I thought last year would be a breakthrough season. Never can tell. I think i have finally accepted that this isn't the same as coach mo's first go around at bhss. A lot of things were different back then the town was a lot different. Things were perfectly aligned his first stint here. This time he has done very well but im not sure the culture and other variables are aligned as well as the first time he was here. Ill be satisfied if the program can continue to build itself up each season . State titles may not be in the near future but good/exceptional football can still be on the horizon.

    My modern experience (not counting my leather helmet days) is that Freshman football's FIRST priority was to keep kids loving the game and having fun doing it. Don't run kids away from the game. By playing with those of similar size and age (and developing a sense of class unity), they have something to build on and develop comradeship and pride in their class. Its goal is to keep that certain small kid engaged so that when he has that 6" and 50lb growth spurt he hasn't left the game behind two years previously (or the short heavy kid that adds inches and turns into a tight end). There are so many stories about what kids looked like Freshman year versus what they became as Seniors. I get it if you frankly just don't have the numbers but I think you are at a severe disadvantage (at least in 3A upwards) if you can't or don't field Freshman teams. Its great to win games, etc., but if you really think that is the real priority of Freshmen football, I think it's a mistake. It's to keep kids in the game and playing the NEXT year.

    With Indiana being a bball state, it could well be the mentality that you have a basketball game for every one football starting team that doesn't take the field ... so there's less love for the idea of anything other than "traditional football." On the other hand, in a football-first state like Texas, the idea is to find any and every way to play football ... thus the affinity for less-than-traditional football.
