    Week 6 Article for WW per Times-Mail (Bedford) Senators cruise past Braves: Senators 40, Braves 6 At Campbellsburg, West Washington bounced back from last week’s loss a Paoli with a big win over Tecumseh. “We had our best week practice leading up to this game, so I’m proud of how the kids responded and bounced back,” said WW coach Phillip Bowsman. “We had out best opening drive of the season and we won every single quarter tonight.” Jacob Farris carried the football 24 times for WW for 134 yards and two touchdowns, while Tanner Packwood had 13 carries for 92 yards and a score. Senators’ quarterback Nick Marrs was 8 for 14 passing for 95 yards. Packwood had 5 catches for 59 yards, Holden Bowsman 2 for 19, and Bobby Stevens 1 for 17.

    Week 5 article for WW (Week 4 was unavailable) per Times-Mail (Bedford) Paoli pounds WW PAOLI — It was all Paoli Friday night at Cook Field as the Rams shut out Patoka Lake Athletic Conference rival West Washington, 48-0. The Rams rolled to 554 total yards of offense, dominating the game from its start. “Our energy level, again, was out of this world,” said Paoli coach Jeremy Lowery. “It was that non-selfish behavior once again. Guys giving it up for one another and not caring who has the success.” The Rams had five players rush for more than 40 yards, led by Tyler Smith who had 14 carries for 160 yards and a touchdown. “It was a fullback night,” Lowery said. “The offensive line was getting off the ball and with (Smith) behind them it set the tone for the whole game. “It was the same thing up front defensively, and our secondary was lights out, too. WW throws it and runs it and out secondary guys were in the right place at the right time. They were there for run support when they need to be and they were back for pass when they needed to be. The guys up front on the defensive line were getting off the ball, and the linebackers were very solid in their reads.” Jacob Farris highlighted the Senators’ effort, rushing 13 times for 85 yards. Paoli (4-1, 3-0 PLAC) travels to Greenwood (4-0) next Friday night, while WW (3-2, 2-2 PLAC) plays host to Tecumseh.

    Week 3 Article for WW (per Times-Mail, Bedford) Mitchell rains pain on WW Bluejackets end WW streaks with 24-18 victory over defending PLAC champs MITCHELL — Defying the spitting, relentless remnants of Hurricane Harvey, Mitchell spat in the face of the adverse conditions and poured a little pain on the two-time Patoka Lake Athletic Conference champions. On a night when the misery index was high, the Bluejackets slogged to a 24-18 victory over West Washington, ending one dismal streak and stopping an impressive one. Brandon Brazzell bulled his way for 144 rushing yards while Trey Speer scored twice as Mitchell finally snapped WW's 9-game streak in the series. More importantly, the Bluejackets (3-0, 2-0 in the league) now have the upper hand as they chase their first conference championship since sharing it in 2000 - about the time most of their roster was born or in diapers. The Senators (2-1, 1-1) suffered their first regular-season loss since the final game of the 2014 campaign. "It was something to shoot for all week," Mitchell coach Troy Pritchett said. "And we got it done." Perhaps it was a shame the weather had to play such a factor, but this Harvey was hardly invisible (unlike the 6-foot rabbit in the classic play). The final gasps of the superstorm were still enough to impact the strategy. If anything, it made Mitchell's running attack even more brutal. The Jackets completed only one pass. Remarkably, with a rain-greased ball, neither team lost a fumble. "That's our kind of game," Pritchett said. "We like these. All those guys were blocking hard and running hard. It was tough to get footing for both teams. But we held on to the ball." There is no razzle or dazzle in Brazzell. He seemed to thrive in the muck of the wet and sweat, clutching the football like it was his most prized possession, and he did a lot of the work for others to score. Speer added 89 yards rushing as Mitchell totaled 275 on the softened ground. Mitchell scored first, capping its opening possession with a 55-yard drive (aided by three WW pre-snap penalties). Caleb Lobosky crashed over from three yards with 3:31 left in the first quarter, and the score remained stuck there for the next 23 minutes. The Bluejackets took control in the third, powering 60 yards in 9 plays, highlighted by Brazzell's 21-yard burst. Speer punched in from a yard out, extending the lead to 12-0. West Washington's lone mistake, a bad punt snap, set up the next score as Speer broke a tackle and darted 18 yards for an 18-0 advantage with 4:31 left in the third. And then something clicked within the Senators. And Mitchell's comfort level changed. WW quarterback Nick Marrs hit speedy freshman Bobby Stevens for 23 yards, and the Senators finished their first real threat with Nick Farris' 1-yard run on fourth down. The conversion trimmed the deficit to 18-8. On their next series, the Senators were back in dire trouble, facing 4th-and-12 from their own 10. Most coaches would have punted out of the danger and relied on the defense. Phillip Bowsman is not most coaches. He called a pass play. It worked. Marrs hit Stevens across the middle, and he shifted into overdrive, racing 88 yards for a touchdown with 5:56 left as WW scrambled within 18-16. Mitchell squirmed. "When I looked at the clock, I thought possessions were limited and we might not get it back," Bowsman said. "I'm not worried about playing it close. It was about winning the game." Mitchell, after covering the onside kick, came back with what could have been a clinching score. Lobosky connected with Cade Pritchett - Mitchell's only completion - for an 18-yard score. But the conversion failed, and West Washington had 2:14 in what was still a one-score game. That drama fizzled like a damp firecracker in the rain. Two sacks, a holding penalty and an incomplete pass ended the suspense. "They weren't going to quit," Pritchett said. "What I like is we battled back when we had to get it done. Now we're the ones in good shape." Mitchell dominated almost every statistical phase, pounding out 16 first downs on one side while allowing only 35 rushing yards (and five first downs) on the other. Marrs threw for 140 yards. But now West Washington will need to win out and receive some help to keep its title streak intact. "The bottom line is these guys had won 20 consecutive regular-season games," Bowsman said. "They don't quit. They have a great attitude. Ultimately, we worry about weeks 10-12 and being our best then. Tonight will prepare us for the sectional."

    Week 1 article for WW (per Times-Mail, Bedford) Senators edge Musketeers : PEKIN — West Washington got its 2017 campaign off on the right foot Friday night, but it had to come from behind at Eastern Pekin to get it done. Trailing 6-0 in the third quarter, Nick Marrs crashed into the end zone from five yards out to tie the game. WW added the two-point conversion on a run by Jacob Farris to take an 8-6 lead and held on for the win. “We got the big score there, and then the defense made it stand up,” said WW assistant coach Keith Nance. “Farris had some big runs at the end to help us run out the clock.” The Musketeers threatened with 7:18 to play and the ball deep in Senators’ territory, but the WW defense made the stop. “It was definitely a defensive struggle, which you don’t see very often anymore,” Nance said. “They scored on an 80-yard run by Brandon Tandy with 2:33 to go in the first quarter, but we stopped the PAT run, and then the defense throttled them down the rest of the way. But give Eastern Pekin credit, too, because they tackled well and made a lot of plays. “They have a lot of upperclassmen and we have a lot of new faces, so it was nice to pull out the win.” The Senators (1-0) return home next Friday night to take on Patoka Lake Athletic rival Crawford County (0-1). Week 2 Article for WW (per Times Mail, Bedford) WW downs Crawford Co. : West Washington 32, Crawford County 14 The Senators returned to Art Sanders Field Friday night and after some miscues early rolled past PLAC rival Crawford County, 32-14. “We had some things early,” said WW coach Phillip Bowsman. “We had an interception returned after it came off the hands of one of our receivers, a ball we should have caught, and then they had a half-back pass for a touchdown. So, two big plays gave them their scores. But I was really proud of our guys, they kept their composure. We still went into the half with the lead and then came out in the second half and shut them out.” Jacob Farris carried the ball 30 times for WW for 179 yards and a touchdown, while quarterback Nick Marrs was 12 for 26 passing for 241 yards and two scores. Senator Tanner Packwood had six catches for 104 yards and a TD and Bobby Stevens had six catches for 137 yards and a score. The Senators had 456 yards of total offense. WW (2-0, 1-0 PLAC) travels to Mitchell (2-0, 1-0 PLAC) next Friday night for big conference showdown with Bluejackets. “I feel like you can’t let one get away from you at all this year,” Bowsman said. “There have been times where you could drop one and still hang on for a chance at the title, but we don’t want to leave it up to other people. So each week is a title game from that standpoint. “Mitchell continues to get better each and every year. They have a lot of guys back and the style of offense they run, they have the personnel that suits it really well. It will be important for us to be very physical next week and be great tacklers because we had some missed tackle to night. We have to make sure we shore that up next week.”

  12. Thanks. Just looked it up on Brownstown's Football website, lots of good info on there, really well done. 7 OT's, those boys were burning the midnight oil for sure!
  13. West Washington vs. Brownstown in 1974: 7 OTs; believe it is still a state record. No idea who ended up winning that marathon. Lol
  14. 2017 Hoosiers

    Liked what I saw from the hoosiers. Watched it live and again last night on DVR. Thought both QBs had some nice throws (Ramsey to TE Ian Thomas for a TD, Lagow to Simmie Cobbs Jr. in the Honey Hole vs Cov. 2, those were my favorites). Lagow had the pick against Rashard Fant. Looked like a miscommunication on the route by someone followed by a bad throw, just a horrendous offensive play. Happens. Really believe Fant is going to get the best of Qs all year, guy is special is coverage, as long as he stays healthy. Saw were he got injured later in the game during a violent collision with Brookins (Terre Haute North). Haven't really been able to catch the extent of his injury. TEAM Defensive potential is really exciting, lots of experience and production back. Offensively, I'm excited to see how things pan out. Really like the energy and message Tom Allen brought. Talked a ton about compete and finish (the finish part being an issue last year). Competed for steak or hotdog dinner, split up the 1s, 2s, 3s etc. evenly., etc. All great things. Glad to see them treat it as a game and get into as many situations as the could, even got an overtime period. That's some great situational football for April. A big question is who gonna kick? Oaks (Greenwood) looks like his confidence is sunk. Overall, excited about this TEAMs potential, could be a really exciting year in Bloomington. Cool to see Coach Gruden there and hear his stories about Btown and comments on the program. Pumped about the South end zone project, going to make the game day atmostsphere pretty cool. Go Hoosiers!
