  1. Please let me clarify as not to be misunderstood. I am not promoting AAU or any other affiliation as a replacement for the current middle school or local youth league organized football. I will always be with representing ones own community and school. There is nothing better than seeing and supporting a community backed team play at a fundamentally high level. I also firmly believe in multi-sport athletes being more rounded players. But not all players teams have the depth chart of a perennial power or the enrollments of a Carmel to better gauge themselves in the big picture of IHSAA football. Combines and camps can give you all the measurements, but between the lines in where the games played. Every child is different, some love to accept the challenge, regardless of success or failure, and relish competition and get better for it. Others are content to be the best they can be in their own pool and enjoy being part of the team. I see nothing wrong with either. I love how far Indiana football has come and look forward to hearing more success stories from our states teams and players for years to come.
  2. I understand from a coaching standpoint having kids that can't wait for football season is a blessing. I also understand that a talented athlete from a smaller rural area schools may never get the opportunity to be pushed to his max potential. My son tried out for the FBU Team Indiana 8th grade team last fall. Well over 200 tried out in 5 tryouts, had a top 50 call back, cut down to 35 with 5 alternates. We had a player from Michigan, Ohio, from Evansville to New Albany to South Bend all over Indy and surrounding cities and towns. The talent was phenomenal. My son in his hometown is an above average player. To watch him compete everyday in practice we these boys was worth it's weight in gold. I believe it has made him more determined to be the best that he can be. They beat Wisconsin and Illinois at Purdue's indoor facility. Massachusetts and Maryland in Virginia, lost to eventual FBU National Champion Florida in the semifinals and beat Iowa in the consolation game. It was an amazing experience. This was done in 3 consecutive weekends in December.
  3. Prayers for GODs strength. Lean not on your own understanding.....
  4. Coach B has no dog in the fight except for the passion he has for a sport that he has played or coached more than half his life. He played at Evansville Reitz, I do believe that his ultimate goal has always been to bring the passion and committment from the Boonville community and students to the field like he had experienced. Not sure if our community knows what it takes from the students and parents to get that done. Play for the love of the game, but be prepared to sacrifce, to excell in the classroom, on the field, and for the people you represent if you think you have what it takes to be a champion in life. not just on the scoreboard. That's what I hope doesn't get pushed to the side. We have some great leaders in all our extra-curricular activities not just football. I am proud to know many of them. I wish them all the best, students, teachers, administrators, and parents alike. Life is not fair so don't ask it to be.
