    Congrats to all. Special shout out the Nw kids. You guys have been a pleasure to watch. As for Bronson and others, see you next year. Do some great things in track. Happy for the numerous NR kids. Well done. Very happy specially for Holley. Battled allot of injuries. Very Good kid and very good player! Tough as nails. Coach wogsman did a wonderful job with this group. Future is very bright. Happy Drudge got voted onto team even though missing half of the year. A tremendous safety And hitter. Good luck and get healthy. To answer your question, we have approx 11 or so starters returning. With a stud back. Concord has about the same. Rockies lose a ton. NR has a tremendous Frosh class and potentially a stud QB and very well coached. Take your pick between concord, us and NR next year. Sounds familiar

    Didn’t post this week because I had no idea how we would react this week. With that said, we did well. Smart had the best game both defensively and offensively in his career. Any college will be fortunate to have him. Loved the creative offense. Both Yoder’s made me proud. O line played well. A giant caveat to the outcome is, Plymouth playing without Drudge on defense, is simply a huge difference. Watching huddle, smart and Drudge were/are the difference makers that can’t be overcome. Plymouth’s d is a shell of themselves compared to a few weeks ago. Enjoy Saturday football

    To even remotely suggest grass and turf have similar risk factors is total BS in regards to leg injuries. Yes, I know you work in the medical world as I do. There is not one credible Dr or trainer that agrees with your suggestion that All things are equal. And please, don’t post some garbage study from JBJS, turf manufacturers or Joiurnal of sports medicine. good luck to your Rockies

    Grid, best game setting around. Maybe In the state. Visitor section looking out into the lake and campus. Two tremendous restaurants in the Edge water and Pappas in culver. Cma will have maybe 10 fans, you will out number them by a country mile. Not a a shot at CMA, just very few local fans. Enjoy it, go early, take it in.

    NW has a very good Frosh group. Hope they continue to develop. Same goes for NR, I was impressed with the potential of both. At this point, keep them involved in the programs and with both staffs, the future continues to be very bright. Good luck to all tonight.
  8. He is a very good player. Just saw this. Too bad for the kid.. http://am1050.com/2017/this-week-is-the-game-for-plymouth/

    Looking at the 7 day forecast looks warm.. Many of the best players in the conference will be there, the yoders. Smart can play on Saturday for sure. Hooley may if he wants too. Concord has at lest three kids that have d 1 talent. Plymouth has two kids, if they so choose in Lafree and drudge. Good talent in the conference this year.
  12. NLC 2017

    Grid, it will be a battle of power football versus finesse and speed. Both teams have a high number of kids going both ways. Two very well coached teams. I'm guessing it will be the biggest crowd in NR history. I'm sure a great environment for sure. Looking forward to it. Tailgating will be a must! Good luck bud. Enjoy Saturday football.

    As has been mentioned and speaking with couple coaches, the winner of Sectional 19 is going to either one beat up team or one confident team! Winner of 19 or Lowell comes from the North is my guess. Heck East Noble isn't even listed below, nor is a very well coached CMA team. Grid Digest Poll: 4A Total 1 Evans. F. J. Reitz 128 12 2 Lowell 99 3 Evans. Central 88 4 Greenwood 73 5 NorthWood 70 6 F.W. Bishop Dwenger 62 7 New Haven 60 8 East Central 57 2 9 Northridge 23 10 New Prairie 18 Others Receiving Votes: Angola 9, Plymouth 6, Mishawaka 6, Franklin County 4, Griffith 3, Lebanon 2, Hobart 1, Jasper 1, Silver Creek 1 Only Close game this week, is NR winning by 7-10... Good luck to all.
  14. NLCTiger, agree totally. Heck, East Noble isnt even listed here. New Prairie, Cavemen and Plymouth outside the top 10. Really Really Like Lowell. 4A Total 1 Evans. F. J.
