  1. Sunshine, seems like we get a couple kids each year that move in and play basketball. I think in the middle school, it's something 32 total 7th and 8th grade football players. 33 kids came out for 7th grade basketball. Crazy Back to GS-HH!
  2. What is going on here? This thread was hidden on page 2!! Let me get you guys going again.... HH will never be the same again without Coach Clayton and Forest Park having football. GS is only good because of Toyota, and really it's a farce because the conference is weeker nowadays You know it. We have ALL kinds of kids moving into the corporation for football. Now, basketball on the other hand, is a different story!
  3. You were definitely close on your prediction!! Kudos to the Titans. They are as good as advertised. It was 14 to 0 with about eight minutes to go in the second quarter and the wheels fell off for the Rangers. Couple turnovers the Titans scored in just a couple plays each time. The Ranger offense struggled to move the ball, obviously, as you can see from the stats. The defense did have some stops early on, but could not keep up the pace. Best of luck the rest of the season to Gibson!
  4. I'm calm, I promise. I did read from the beginning, it was how many points are scored on FP, how many passes are thrown and how not to run up the score. While I do understand what you're saying about stopping the run, if you put 6 or 7 guys on the line, then they will pass. Or, break through the first line, no help behind to stop the run. Or, put 11 guys in the box, then get burnt on pass plays. I'm with you, I wish we could stop the run better. It's like the old saying " if you don't like it, get better." Sometimes, it's not that easy. It's not about the X's & O's, it's the Jimmy and Joes in some cases. Hopefully, that won't be the case this year. Time shall tell. Best of luck!
  5. As I said, my post was NOT a feel sorry post, just facts are facts. I can promise you, Coach Fuhs and (all the coaches and players) would give anything to make FP successful again. He is used to winning after playing/coaching at Southridge. He stays around to help at MS practices, he is always at the youth fields, flag games, etc. Two years ago they were 5-4 in the regular season, pretty respectful. Last year was rebuilding. Sometimes when you don't have the numbers/athletes, it's hard to compete. As I said, I love PAC football and root like hell for the teams when they are playing non-conference schools/in the tourney. I'm glad FP got football 10 years ago (we wouldn't have had 2 professional players either- Ben Braunecker- Chicago Bears and Grant Welp played in Sweden), hopefully they can get back to winning!
  6. What I'm reading is FP shouldn't show up and play GS and HH. I get it, FP is not the powerhouse in the conference, they are a basketball school. They are a small 2A school, (5 away from being 1A). It's tough to compete with the powerhouses and the football schools. Heck, GS and HH may be better off playing their JV teams, who knows. I can promise you though, the FP coaches and players work their ass off week in and week out, just as any other programs. When you have 40 players and 9 or 10 guys going both ways, it's gonna be tougher to compete, especially when you play teams that have minimal or no players going both ways. I know there was a comment made that if a team is running it all over you, shame of their defense and DC. I don't think anyone goes into a game wanting to get the ball ran over them or thrown all over the field on them. Sometimes you just don't have the athletes. Heck, sometimes you just don't have coaches. Coach Fuhs is the only teacher in the corporation that teaches. He has been at practice by himself to get it started before. Hard to be successful that way, also. It is what it is. This isn't a feel sorry for FP post, just facts are facts. Best of luck to all teams on Friday and stay healthy! Look forward to a great year in the conference and hopefully some teams playing in Indy on Thanksgiving weekend!
  7. PAC 2017

    I THINK FP will be a little better this year. Return 6 on D, 7 on O. Injuries, as always, will be key! SR,HH, Gibson will all be solid. Posey returns some nice underclassmen with experience. SS and Pike lost some really good seniors. TC lost some decent lineman and their stud LB.
  8. PAC 2016

    Forest Park will return 7 starters on O and 6 full time, 2 part time starters on D.
  9. There is no more Crews. nor Scheller, so I hope the teams don't have them on their scouting reports!!
  10. Southridge vs Forest Park

    The Raiders reign as the undisputed DC champs! Rangers were hanging tough for a quarter and a half, but a kickoff mistake changed the momentum for the game. Best of Luck Raiders next week! Raider O is fun to watch.
  11. Southridge vs Forest Park

    My son came home today and talked about how Southridge's offense is gonna be tough to stop, especially with their QB running a lot now. Hopefully the Rangers can use the ol bend but not break defense. If not, it could be a long night! Regardless, hope for a competitive game to help out both teams.
  12. Southridge vs Forest Park

    I'd like to predict my Rangers in this one, but the Raiders have too much fire power. Hoping for good weather and a good crowd Friday!
  13. PAC 2016

    Congrats PAC teams!
  14. Congrats to the Titans. As we thought to be true, the GS lines on both sides dominated. FP was much smaller and got pushed around. Kudos to the Titans on a dominating performance. I thought the Rangers played very hard the entire game, just outmatched!
  15. PAC FAN, quit giving away the game plan!! Did a scouting report get into your hands?? It says something about deflate gate and hiding the balls. Actually, hoping for A BUNCH of rain and flooded field!! ha In all honesty, I would much rather play on a dry field and play straight up. If it's 76-0, or 35-7, so be it, I'm ready for some football.
