  1. First off I think the players probably had little to no input on this decision. From what I’ve heard there wasn’t a great deal of interest in the job and I’m as confused by that as anyone. I also believe they had a more high profile hire and it fell through. To be honest I thought they would be getting a proven coach at a smaller level or an Assistant at a proven school. I’ve heard the excuse that it’s too late in the year so they had trouble with applicants but I don’t understand that since school just ended. Maybe some of you can enlighten me on that possibility. My only point in saying the kids respect him is at least that’s a positive. I also don’t think respecting your coach means he isn’t pushing kids to be their best. I would love to have Bill Gaddis, a high profile Assistant, or another proven winner but it sounds like they may not have walked through that door. Fc has lost a lot in the last two classes and have very little Varsity experience returning. This may be a rough couple of years anyway. Like I said, I wish Coach Bragg the best.
  2. Man I get your point but the bottom feeding comment was kind of rough. Coach Bragg seems to be well liked by the players and I’m told he’s got their respect. Time will tell if he’s the right choice but he stepped up and wanted the job so I wish him good luck.
  3. I’m curious about HHC kids that go on to play college football. Can anyone give me an estimate of how many kids each school will have on a college football roster next year? I’m talking about any level.
  4. I don’t want to put it out unless it’s for sure but I’ve heard the same name from two people. Hoping it’s accurate. It’s my understanding they are working the details out now. I’m not sure how the approval process works with the school board but it seemed like a month before the Glesing to Jeff story came out.
  5. After East I’m taking Bedford. I don’t know a lot about them except their Quarterback is still there and I was impressed with him. Kid seems like a gamer. I think Fc and Jeff are tossups. It sounds like Fc may be changing their Offense to a more passing style and I think it’s a question whether Glesing gets kids to buy in his first year.
  6. From what I’ve heard Floyd has some promising lineman coming up if they can keep them in the program. That’s been the issue for several years. They are replacing just about every skill position player so that first game against Male will be even more challenging. Hopefully with the coaching change they change to a Bloomington school or other opponent. I’ve seen enough of Male for awhile. Edwards could be a really good running back but he’s also a stud at linebacker so I’m not sure how that goes. They have one of the best kicking duos in the state though. I would think the coaching hire would be this week and it sounds like they had some very good candidates inside and outside the program.

    You know not of what you speak and I’ll leave it at that... Change can be good. In my opinion there are qualified coaches going in the right direction. It looks like Fc is trying to hire a “certified strength and conditioning specialist” and that sounds like they are going in the right direction for all programs.

    I just hope it’s someone who brings some energy into the program. It would be nice to see changes to the lifting program and off season schedule.
  9. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    Haven’t heard a thing yet except there are two local coaches interested.
  10. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    Going to make for an interesting rivalry game at Fc next year...
  11. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    I hope Fc tries to find a young up and coming coach from an established winning program. Fc is behind how a lot of schools use their advanced PE class and a new approach could benefit all programs. I was really impressed with Coach Coultis at NA before he had to move for family reasons. Hope there’s someone like that out there.
  12. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    Heard the same about Coach Hess. With all that Fc offers you would think it would be an attractive job. The academics, facilities, booster club funding, and community support are already there.
  13. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    Glesing interviewed for the Jeff job last time and several others the last few years. It appears he’s wanted out for awhile. Fc needs a coach more involved in the youth program to move forward. Probably good for both sides. Coach Hess is very well liked and respected so he would be a nice hire if he’s interested.
  14. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    Possibility of some big coaching changes at multiple schools in the area...

    I said at the beginning of the year that we lost a solid group of Seniors last year. We lost 3 year starters RG, RT, 2 LB, All conference NT, and all area CB. We also lost a few other starters on the O line and D line that were solid. We competed in this game last year but this one was over quickly. Congratulations East. Great football program. Hopefully someone in the conference can step up and challenge in the future.
