  1. Mid State

    They are 33-38 in the Mid-State over 10 years. That being said the first 5 years of Coach Campbell's tenure they struggled (2-8, 4-7, 4-7, 3-8, and 4-7). Since then they have been pretty steady in the Mid-State. They also have been playing Perry Meridian the last 5 years and are 3-2 against them. Greenwood was also successfull when Coach Wimmer was there prior to leaving for Fishers.
  2. Mid State

    What hindrance has Greenwood been to the Mid-State? They finished with 2 losses in the Mid-State in football. 1 of those loss s was a 13-12 loss to eventual conference champion Decatur Central. They also were the teambto go the furthest in the tournament from the Mid-State losing in Semi-State to eventual State Champion East Central 27-14 at East Central. I don't see them as a hindrance at all!
  3. Mid State

    I could see the Sagamore Conference as a good fit for Mooresville's school demographics in athletics. The Sagamore with: Crawfordsville, Danville, Lebanon, Mooresville, North Montgomery, Southmont, Tri-West, and Western Boone. With the dropping of Frankfort. I think it would fit their schools enrollment better.
  4. I agree Mr. Position anything would encompass the entire state from N to S to E to W. Yes there is an All City and All County. What I am stating is these awards are not based solely on statistics and I personally wouldn't want it to be based on stats (so you don't need to share stats). The reason why because stats can be misleading and inflated depending on who a team plays throughout the season. By stating that it makes sense, I mean that the proportion of Indy area kids is greater than other places in the State because this is awarded by the IndyStar who is able to see a majority of the Indy area players. There has been Mr. Football awarded to a player from Evansville. I have watched all of the players that won the position awards play except for: Punter, Defensive Line, and Kicker. All teh players I have watched were very deserving of the award and I can definitely see why the colleges that they are going to have recruited them. Reese Taylor is an unbelievable talent and fun to watch. Emil Ekiyor has amazing footwork for a big man and is a dominant O-lineman. Cam McGrone and Hugh Davis were both extremely fun to watch Linebackers who were doing so against some very good teams. Isaac Guerendo was a fantastic WR that some may not know but when you watch him play he was extremely good not just at WR but as a return man. Alec Burton was a fantastic Tight End very talented and I am surprised he isn't getting looks by Indiana or Purdue. Johnny Adams throughout the season was a game breaker RB to compliment Taylor. Paul Moala was a fantastic DB that flew all over the field and was also a great return man. All of them I felt were deserving of their awards That is just my opinion. Edited to strike through the sentence about the IndyStar being able to see a majority of Indy area players. I still stand by my statement about these awards not based solely on stats and my statements on the terrific players that won these awards.
  5. It makes sense considering it's "The Indystar Mr Football Awards" and "The Indystar Position Awards". I would expect if it were "The CourierPress Mr. Football" it would lean more towards the Evansville area players. In curiosity whom do you feel is undeserving of the awards and whom should replace them?
  6. Markese Stepp

    Back on topic. Markese Stepp has set-up official visits to Purdue and Alabama.
  7. LC job opening

    I am surprised on your list you left off K.C. Woods 23-4 in 2 seasons at Danville with a trip to Regionals and a trip to Semi-State. Things were pretty down at Danville prior to him coming in and changing the culture. Heck the 3 seasons prior to him arriving they went 3-8, 4-6, and 2-8. He has definitely a coach on the upswing. Lawrence Central's roster has a few talented players, but they lose several outstanding players from this year (notably Cam McGrone and Donyell Meredith). Their roster is at the middle to bottom end of the spectrum in the MIC as far as depth (Carmel 204, Warren Central 162, Ben Davis 145, Center Grove 103, North Central 90, Lawrence Central 90, Lawrence North 83, Pike 81). This next year will be a rebuilding type of year for Lawrence Central as they return a few good players on offense and defense (Notably Donivan Wright and Lashon Bright). They will have some big shoes to fill at QB and on Defense. They may be a little bit down from this last year.
  8. Peebles to Cathedral

    It happens under the correct circumstances, this is NOT one of those circumstances though.
  9. Peebles to Cathedral

    It matters to Lawrence Central High School and their administration. I highly doubt that they care for their school to be associated with the classless and low character move described in the sentence. I figured that it most likely didn't happen as it is not in the nature of LC.
  10. LC job opening

    Emil Ekiyor (Sr.) has been an assistant at Cathedral the last few years. He did a solid job at Tech, if he wanted to get into the Head Coaching ranks again he would be a terrific Head Coach. Some young names that could be looked at K.C. Woods has done a terrific job at Danville and Nick Hart has done a terrific job at Gibson Southern. Would LC be interested in them or would they be interested in LC? Could LC lure Kevin O'Shea from North Central? He has done a fantastic job at North Central. Could LC be enticing enough to get Coach Ralph lured away from New Palestine? What about John Hart, would he want to step back into the MIC and leave Brownsburg to try his hand at LC? There are possibilities just not sure who LC is interested in and / or if any of these coaches are interested in LC. I am sure we will find out very soon.
  11. Peebles to Cathedral

    There are greater rewards? The greatest reward for a High School Football Coach is a State Championship, and that doesn't matter what school you are at be it Pioneer or Ben Davis. More personal satisfaction? Don't let your personal disappointment of him not doing what you personally wanted him to do cloud your thoughts. Reading the quote from the IndyStar "There was always a big part of Cathedral with me even when I wasn’t there.” , “I was running those hallways when I was 6 years old,”. There will be plenty of personal satisfaction for Coach Peebles to coach at his alma mater where his family has been so entrenched for years dating back before 1969. Where did you get that LC escorted him of the premises? It wasn't in the newspaper article. I certainly hope that Lawrence Central didn't escort him off the premises, and if they did Coach Peebles showed a lot of character and class with the interview by Kyle Neddenriep of the IndyStar. Coach Peebles quotes: “It was a really tough decision,” , “I was very happy at Lawrence Central and had a great group of kids. We made a lot of strides and I’m really proud of them." , “I think we’ve taken a lot of steps in the right direction,” Peebles said. “The administration and support at LC is fantastic. There is a good staff there and a lot of enticing things about being there.” , “I was very happy where I was,” , "The whole thing took me by surprise. I’m excited. I feel like I’m going from one great program to another great program.” I expect nothing less from Coach Peebles because he is a great man and great coach. I am hoping that LC didn't do as you said, but if they did I am happy Coach Peebles remained who he is a stand-up character guy along with being an outstanding Coach Here is a link to the full story: https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2017/12/04/cathedral-hires-bill-peebles-football-coach/918999001/
  12. About a 30 minute drive. lol :)
  13. When did they move the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium from Canton to Akron? When did they move the Ohio State Football Championships this year from Canton to Akron? By the way it used to be called Fawcett Stadium, it was demolished in 2015 and they rebuilt a new stadium. Last year the Ohio Football State Championships were played at Ohio Stadium at Ohio State University
  14. Best Chances for 2018 Title

    New Palestine returns a lot of players and Zionsville returns a lot of players. Should make for a good Sectional battle next year too.
