  1. Here's a few random takes on the issue. I'm not a football coach, so I have an unbiased point of view: 1. If a school corporation can afford it, without overlooking necessary academic funding issues, go for it. 2. I do not think, however, that money should be spent for a field turf for football (and various other activities) that should be used for the original purpose of schools - that of educating students. I have been a varsity coach and a varsity official in other sports, as well as a classroom teacher for 15 years. I have seen the good athletics can do. But, as I said, this should only be done if there is enough money and there are no greater needs. (If some "sugar daddy", likely at a private school, wants to get out the checkbook and pay for it then that's great.) 3. I am mostly against spending public money for them because the warranty is only for eight years, and at a cost of $1 million that's $125K a year. I don't know how much it costs to manually care for a field per year, but I'd be surprised if it's that much. Maybe it is. Anybody know? 4. I was at a girls' soccer sectional championship this year, at a school with field turf, and a horrendous rainstorm hit for over an hour. Had to be several inches of rain. When the rain stopped, they played. It was pretty amazing. No effect on the match at all. The field definitely saved the match. I hope your school has field turf, and if not I hope you can afford it soon. But if you don't have it or don't get it, you'll be just fine.

  3. My bad. It’s not on the “head coaching openings” area if this site, and I didn’t see another job board.
  4. I think Turkey Run’s coach this year took it as a one-year deal. If so, Parke Heritage is open.

  6. Jacob Meyer of Greencastle recorded two safeties in Friday's 21-13 win over Cloverdale. Anybody know if this is a record, or close to one, or where I could possibly find out? Thanks. (I have already emailed Jason Wille at the IHSAA and John Harrell.)
  7. The father of recently graduated star quarterback Trey Powell (preferred walk-on at Indiana State) has been promoted to head coach.

  9. Tony Meyer resigned this week.
  10. Riverton Parke fills

    No. Jake Weber is currently out of coaching. Greg Barrett is new HC at South Vermillion.
  11. Assistant coach Brad Sanders promoted.
  12. I know the South team's punter has decided not to play, so a replacement will be needed there.
  13. New Turf In 2017?
