  1. I just want to set this straight. On the Linton-Stockton Miners page of the 2018 Indiana Football Digest the first paragraph reads "There are few communities that embrace their Friday night football better than the southwest Indiana towns of Linton and Stockton." Now c'mon. There is not now, nor was their ever a town named Stockton, at least not near Linton. Linton is a small city. It is located in the Indiana township of Stockton. Stockton Township is located in the western part of Greene county. The township does not reach very far beyond the city limits of Linton. It is true that the community of Linton embraces it's Friday night football. we're sorta proud of that. I don't want to share that attribute with some mythical town called Stockton.
  2. Linton @ Southrdige

    There's definitely not a lack of interest. The Miners fans will be at Southridge in full force. But with the tougher schedule we play most are not quite as cocky as they used to be, expecting an undefeated season most years. A little more humble. Some GID readers are probably saying, "it's about time". :-)
  3. Linton @ Southrdige

    That's right, Tom, another season is upon us. I hope you are still doing well. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. I don't think you'll get much feedback at this point from the Miner faithful. We are all in a "wait and see" mode at this point. I do know we'll have a very talented and speedy backfield. That's about all I can say at this point. We won't be very big but that doesn't worry me. Seems like we always do well with undersize linemen. I went to the "Meet the Miners" supper at the park last Saturday evening. Great kids all. It's true that HS Football players don't look nearly as fierce without the pads and helmets on and these kids for the most part look pretty young and unimposing. This of course from an old geezer that sees everyone under seventy as young. :-) Small or not though one thing we can be sure of, when these youngsters put on the pads, they will be competitive. We were young last year and this year we only have 5 seniors so we're still young but with more experience. Tough schedule ahead so we'll see how it goes.
  4. Any news out of Linton?

    According to TS's write-up in the Daily World, Linton's offense did very well as I expected. The Defense got burned a few times by both pass and run. Bosse's speed hurt the Miners. Overall, coach Oliver was pleased but knows there's a lot of work to do this week to get ready for Southridge.
  5. I'm sure that anomaly with North Central will be corrected as the season progresses. NC could be pretty good in their own back yard but... Hopefully Linton will correct their omission from the polls as well.
  6. The next reclassification

    Effective last November 1, Linton's 9 through 12 enrollment was 380. Grade 12 was 91. Grade 8 was 114. So if those figures would translate to this year (and I have no idea if the will) Linton would have a net gain of 23 students to 403.
  7. New Turf In 2018

    Might already be reported but Edgewood has a new bright RED turf.
  8. Any news out of Linton?

    Why not? I'm Qualified. :-)
  9. Any news out of Linton?

    Oh, I know that. I don't know why I said Lannan. I've been following Drake's army deal via his mother on FB. Anyway, it's really good to have Lannan and Cunningham back on the field. Two key players.
  10. Any news out of Linton?

    The first floor was usable before they put in the new bleachers. The new bleachers came up several feet higher than the old and blocked the lower windows. The roof is on about a 45 degree angle. beats me why it was built that way. Radio uses the press box on the visitors side.
  11. Any news out of Linton?

    Unfortunately, no.
  12. Any news out of Linton?

    Senior starter Luke Lannan , WB/LB just back from army basic training. First practice yesterday (Friday). Senior Lineman Ben Burris, also in army basic training won't be back until next Friday. Linton has very few seniors this year. Only 6 Juniors on the roster last year. The impressive new all-purpose athletic building under construction at the north end of the football field is coming along nicely but unfortunately it's not scheduled for completion until November. New locker rooms for home and visitors (and officials), new rest rooms, concession area, and storage. All badly needed at Roy Williams field. More blacktopped parking areas are under construction. (seems like the more parking spaces provided the more is still needed) The citizens of Linton love their Miners. Also a new $100,000 scoreboard will be in place in time for the home opener.

  14. Any news out of Linton?

    I agree with TS32. There are able replacements for most of the departing seniors. Of course Keaton Cox, Levi Jerrels, and Chance Howard will be missed. One of the twelve didn't actually play. Josh Warnock, was carried on the roster but didn't play the last two years because of a medical problem. Previous post listed Dreydon Howard. That was actually Dreydon Ward. A receiver, he was slowed by a hip injury for much of the season.
  15. Any news out of Linton?

    Very young last year. A year older, bigger and stronger. And, hopefully, smarter.
