  1. He's a pretty amazing kid. Two great things about him: 1. He was the lead in Bye, Bye Birdie in the fall musical (run that math). 2. I am willing to bet he is the only kid to ever wear his choir t-shirt while warming up on State Championship Saturday at Bankers Life.
  2. Great point. I assumed those following this thread would know Coach Doyle is Chatard's coach, but that is lazy on my part. I have edited the original post. Thanks for the heads-up!
  3. This should be the most competitive year of football the Circle City Conference has seen. Roncalli comes into 2018 as the defending two-time champions. In fact, they have yet to lose a conference game. While they fell to Cathedral in the sectionals, many believe last year's squad was a top five all-time team (I've heard more than a few people claim "the best"). They graduated a ton of talent, but also return some studs. Elijah Mahan will carry the load as RB1. He rushed for 754 yards at a 6.2 yds per carry clip last year. The show choir standout and wrestling state finalists will be joined by Notre Dame recruit Brandon Berger (LB) and Ball State commit John Harris (OL). Simon Dias (OL), Joe Mullin (OL), and Luke Dill (WR) are also back. There are still quite a few unknowns, but look for a combination of confidence born of experience and some key sophomore contributors to see the Rebels maintain a high level of excellence. Coach Doyle's Bishop Chatard squad now has a year under its belt playing in his systems. Look for major strides to be made by the offense with Sr. QB Mark Nondorf (Ball State commit) hooking up with Sr. TE Jack Kassenbrock and Jr. WR Andrew Sowinski, Jr.. Junior RB Daylen Taylor is back to build upon a sophomore year where he was absolutely dominant for long stretches. The future is bright for the boys in blue, although they play an absolutely brutal schedule. Aside from playing Roncalli, Brebeuf Jesuit, and Guerin Catholic, they will face Cathedral, Covington Catholic, Lawrence Central, Southport, Cinicinnati Winton Woods, and Bloomington South. The toughest schedule in 3A should have them primed for a deep playoff run. The Brebeuf Jesuit Braves are coming off of a state championship appearance. They return only three starters from the defensive unit, but they are high quality. Tyler Miller is back for his third year as a starter. Multi-sport stud Simon Banks will anchor the strong safety spot for the fourth consecutive year. The linebacker core is led by IndyStar Super Team wrecking-ball Jay Higgins (JR). The offense also lost a fair amount of talent but returns senior linemen Justin Spaulding and Tyler Miller. Gabe Wright, Michael Bales, and Isaiah Martin will be the featured playmakers. Questions remain as to who will be taking snaps. Christian Gelov looks to man the quaterback position for the Guerin Catholic Golden Eagles this season. As a sophomore, he was 7 of 17 with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Sr. RB Dylan Crossen will see the lion's share of the carries. He scored 5 touchdowns on 30 carries in 2017. Junior Bernie McGuinness led the team in receptions last year and should be the go-to man for Gelov. There is a fair amount of uncertainty coming into this season as a wealth of talent graduated last year. One thing that remains certain is Coach Tom Dilley will have his squad ready to play on Friday night.
  4. To rebel03's point, Roncalli had 48 yards of offense. 26 of those yards came on a counter play where the intended rusher was tackled before he received the ball. The QB was forced to tuck it and scramble down the field. When you consider the play should have been a loss of 8, our offensive total should have been roughly 14 yards.
  5. If only there was a national success factor to even the playing field for our Indiana kids...
  6. 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.
  7. It's always interesting to me to see the contrast between the military's approach to discipline and athletics. Which one has been more successful at producing qualified leaders who can be counted on in the clutch?

  9. A year ago, Chatard had lost 23 of 25 games dating back to the previous season. Since then, they have split their last 20 (8-9 on this season). Read how Coach Brian Shaughnessy has changed their culture by empowering players and preaching accountability and service to others. http://circlecityconference.com/2018/02/06/shaughnessy-reframes-trojans-focus-to-one-of-service-and-accountability/
  10. ...and actually it’s “Who is” in this case, but I know you are not one to quibble over details.
  11. Daddy is going to be mad when he gets home and sees how you derailed his thread.
